Man goes into a Cafe and reads the menu:

Cheese Rolls £1
Ham Rolls £1.50
Egg Rolls £1.50
Wanks £10

He ponders for a minute and then sees a buxom, attractive assistant walk out from the kitchen. Not believing his luck he asks:  ‘Are you the one that gives the wanks?'
’Yes I am', she purrs.
‘Wash your hands then, I want two cheese rolls!’

I have no clue, but this is what i made up to wrap around it.

 

1. There is some existing craze of getting out of your car and walking alongside it.

2. A couple of cops arrested them, but faux-participated.

 

My personal take on it, if that's what it is indeed supposed to be, is that it's all a complete set-up. Just for the camera.

Piss off already.

Dude ... The thread is titled "Funny Stuff," not "Random Stuff."

It's OK. You thought it was humorous. It's also fair criticism to state a difference of perspective. Some humorous pieces, as you've posted, requires context to understand why they are funny. Not everyone shares the same social context or sense of humor.

Would a video of a kid eating a Tide pod be funny? Maybe to the right audience, although most would fail to see any humor.

Piss off indeed. Know thy audience before you get on stage.

:P

Fair point. As the "I don't get it" gag is getting on my tits anyway, I'll just leave the joke making to you from now on.

But don't worry. Next time you post one I don't think is funny, I'll just close the tab and be on with my day without feeling the need to point it out.
