    (Whole joke said in ironic tone)
    An underated bassist, a modest guitarist, and Santa Claus are all standing in a lift. A £10 note is on the floor. Who picks it up?
     
  2. the underated bassist because the other 2 don't exist.

    Scotland,
    Heh, the version I heard of that was;
    A SMART blonde, a smart guy, The Easter Bunny and Santa Cluas are in a lift. £5 note on the floor, which one gets it.

    The Smart Guy, the rest, don't exist ;)

    The joke may have been adapted slightly to suit my bitterness. See my piece in the miscellaneous forum entitled "We all love to insult our guitarists"
     
  5. I saw this one in the "uhh...yeah" thread:

    There's a five pound note on the floor. Of a thrash guitarist, a drummer who keeps good time, and a drummer who keeps bad time, who picks it up?

    The drummer who keeps bad time.
    The other drummer doesn't exist and the thrash guitarist doesn't care about notes anyway.

    Luckily I speak a bit of British.

    Fellow Americans, note means bill, and the funny E means "pound" a name for $1.60.

    got another one
    There's a badger, my girlfriend, and john turner's 4 string bass and theres the bill and one of them takes it. Who?



















    Because the other two don't exist.:(
     
  12. Actually, the "funny E" symbol is for the Euro. The pound sterling is more like a funny L, as seen below:

  13. Its English you colonial hick! :p but the best version ive heard of this very very very ye olde joke, is the version from the Kevin smith film Chasing amy, theres a $20 bil lieing at the crossection of a road, there are four streets going off it, Jesus, santa clause, man hating dyke and the man friendly lesbian, which one picks it up....

    any one a kevin smith fan?
     
  14. "Whats a Nubian?"

    I loved the part with "Whats a Nubian?"

    Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was probably a disapointment to most people, But I am easy to please! I thought the movie was great!
