The balloonist joke has been shortened, and cleaned up a bit.

Was realy doiing the rounds when Branson flew across the Atlantic in one.

In 1987 Richard Branson and Per Lindstrand were the first to cross the Atlantic in a hot air balloon, rather than a helium/gas filled balloon. They flew a distance of 2,900 miles in a record breaking time of 33 hours. At the time, the envelope they used was the largest ever flown, at 2.3 million cubic feet of capacity. A year later, Per Lindstand set yet another record, this time for highest solo flight ever recorded in a hot air balloon - 65,000 feet!

And it were an owd un then!

Nowt wrong with repeats.

Andrew and Evan save up their money and decide to travel in a hot air balloon around the world.

Several days into their trip Andrew says to Evan, "Aah, we're flying over France!"
"How do you know that?" asks Evan.
"Easy! You can see the Eiffel Tower from up here!"

It's a few days later and, again, Andrew says to Evan, "We're above America now!"
"How can you tell?" asks a puzzled Evan.
"Well if you look just there you can see the Statue of Liberty!"

On their last day Andrew looks over and says, "Today we're flying over Liverpool!"
Evan looks as hard as he can but can see nothing on the ground that sticks out. Confused, he asks Andrew, "How the heck can you know that?!"
Andrew replies, "Because SOME SWINE'S NICKED MY WATCH!"

did you know that Dostaf invented the phrase, 'Nowt wrong with repeats'.

Me and the Mrs. did one of them hot air balloon trips where you fly over your own house... when she she leaned over the edge for a better look I pushed her out. I could tell she wasn't happy. In fact, she hit the roof

And I've also ben known to paraphrase a quote about book shelves.

Some books, as with crappy owd jokes, are worth re reading.
