Jeremy Corbyn walks into a Bank to cash a cheque. "Good morning, could you please cash this cheque for me?"

Cashier:"It would be my pleasure. Could you please show me your ID?"

Corbyn :"Actually, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party.

Cashier:"Yes, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the legislation etc., I must insist on seeing ID"

Corbyn: Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am"

Cashier: "I am sorry, Mr Corbyn, but these are the bank rules under the legislation, and I must follow them"

Corbyn"Come on please, I am urging you, please cash this cheque"

Cashier: "Look sir, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID.
To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled out his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his cheque."

"Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racket and made a fabulous shot where the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his cheque. So, sir, what can you do to prove that it is you and only you?"

Corbyn stands there thinking and thinking and finally says

"Honestly, my mind is a total blank...there is nothing that comes to my mind. I can't think of a single thing. I have absolutely no idea what to do. I don't have a clue"

Cashier: "Will that be large or small notes Mr Corbyn. ?....

My neighbour has been showing off his new hearing aid.

"State of the art, cost me a fortune" he said

So I asked him, "What type is it?"

"Half two" he repied

With my first date in a French Restaurant, I decided I would try to impress her with the French I learned at school.

After a perfectly pronounced delivery, the waiter set off for the kitchen.

After a few minutes, he returned and said...

"would Sir like to order now I have shut the door and opened the window?"

Ireland Declared War on France

Long ago, Jacques Chirac The French President, was sitting in his office when his telephone rings.
"Hallo, Mr. Chirac!" a heavily accented voice said "This is Paddy down at the Harp Pub in County Clare, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are officially declaring war on you!"
"Well, Paddy" Chirac replied "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"
"Right now," says Paddy, after a moment's calculation, "there is myself, me Cousin Sean, me next door neighbor Seamus, and the entire darts team from the pub. That makes eight!"
Chirac paused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 100,000 men in my army waiting to move on my command"
"Begorrah!" says Paddy. "I'll have to ring you back"

Sure enough, the next day, Paddy calls again "Mr. Chirac, the war is still on. We have managed to get us some infantry equipment!"
"And what equipment would that be Paddy?" Chirac asks. "Well, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and Murphy's farm tractor"
Chirac sighs amused. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 6,000 tanks and 5,000 armored personnel carriers. Also, I have increased my army to 150,000 since we last spoke" "Saints preserve us!" says Paddy. "I'll have to get back to you"

Sure enough, Paddy rings again the next day "Mr. Chirac, the war is still on! We have managed to get ourselves airborne! We have modified Jackie McLaughlin's ultra-light with a couple of shotguns in the cockpit, and four boys from the Shamrock Bar have joined us as well!"
Chirac was silent for a minute and then cleared his throat. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have 100 bombers and 200 fighter planes. My military bases are surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air missile sites. And since we last spoke, I have increased my army to 200,000!"
"Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!" says Paddy, "I will have to ring you back"

Sure enough, Paddy calls again the next day "Top o' the mornin', Mr. Chirac! I am sorry to inform you that we have had to call off the war"
"Really? I am sorry to hear that" says Chirac "Why the sudden change of heart?"

"Well," says Paddy "we had a long chat over a few pints of Guinness, and decided there is no way we can feed 200,000 prisoners"

Pinocchio, Snow White and Superman are out for a stroll in town one day.

As they walk, they come across a sign: "Beauty contest for the most beautiful woman in the world"

"I am entering," said Snow White.

After half an hour she comes out and they ask her, "Well, how did you do?"

"First Place" said Snow White.

They continue walking and they see a sign: "Contest for the strongest man in the world"

"I'm entering," says Superman.

After half an hour he returns and they ask him "How did you make out?"

"First Place" answers Superman. "Did you ever doubt?"

They continue walking when they see a sign: "Contest! Who is the greatest liar in the world?"

Pinocchio says, "this is mine"

Half an hour later, he returns with tears in his eyes.

"What happened?" the other two ask.

"Who the hell is Tony Blair?" asked Pinocchio.
