.........there i was, minding my own business thumping away trying to make head or tail of the bass drum part to "Poet and peasant" when someone said "oh for christ's sake give it a rest you? you sad spazz!!!, we cant hear the ****** questions"....apparently I was disturbing the pub quiz. Lots of people in the pub started making a strange noise, a bit like a donkey, or that odd record that Aunty Doris bought me for Christmas many years ago..."The laughing policeman"....goodness knows why a policeman should be making such a noise when at work is beyond me! My polite inquiries as to the reason for this strange noise in the pub made the noise even worse, and everyone in the pub was doubled over in some kind of strange convulsions. Later on, after a lot of pestering on my part, and a lot of very bad language in return i was informed that the reason for all this behaviour was that i had told a "Joke" and that I myself was some kind of "joke". Its really scarey not being able to understand this kind of stuff and I feel I may be missing out on something, but I cant quite put my finger on what it is. Can any one help me?....do the moderators have any clue for me? Its got me baffled good and proper.
