Oh, yes. You can. There is a search button for the thread, & you just need to use a key word to search. A joke is good when it's fresh.

What I've said before & will say again is - there are so many jokes on this thread. It is very much possible that it's been posted before.

@Type 0-, where's the reprimand ? If we can search for other things before posting, why not on this thread ?

Condor is absolutely right.

The search button is really there for a reason. The same "you dont really expect me to search do you??" attitude is carried over to all other threads and that why we have tons of repeat threads with diluted and scattered information.

All you have to do is pick one (or a few) unique words from your joke - in this case "revocation" - and do a search (either in the whole forum, or in the thread).

Its really not that hard.

cheers,
R

An American tourist in London decides to skip his tour group and explore the city on his own. He wanders around, seeing the sights, occasionally stopping at a quaint pub to soak up the local culture, chat with the locals, and have a pint of bitter.

After a while, he finds himself in a very nice neighbourhood with big, stately residences...no pubs, no stores, no restaurants, and worst of all NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS.

He really, really has to go, after all those Guinness's. He finds a narrow side street, with high walls surrounding the adjacent buildings and decides to use the wall to solve his problem.

As he is unzipping, he is tapped on the shoulder by a London police officer, who says, "I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know."

"I'm very sorry, officer," replies the American, "but I really, really have to go, and I just can't find a public restroom."

"Ah, yes," said the policeman..."Just follow me". He leads the American to a back delivery alley to a gate, which he opens.

"In there," points the policeman. "Go ahead sir, anywhere you like."

The fellow enters and finds himself in the most beautiful garden he has ever seen. Manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, sculptured hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom.

Since he has the policeman's blessing, he relieves himself and feels much more comfortable. As he goes back through the gate, he says to the police officer, "That was really decent of you... is that what you call English hospitality?"

"No sir...", replied the police officer, "...that is what we call the French Embassy."

Don't mean to sound curt, but this picture should not be up here... it is more ironic than funny... really sad to see this happening, but many seem to be going this way.
