How about really bad jokes:

One night in a museum, a mouse got trapped inside a medieval suit of armor. Soon, its friends outside heard the cry: “Help me! Help me! Help me make it through the knight!” 😬
Oh yes, Turga...many of our jokes are bad. I'd estimate about 54.3%.

When you finish the Camino in 2019 and only then find out that the Cathedral is closed for renovations.

(I knew it was closed before the trip, but I couldn't stop thinking about this scene the closer I got cuz it made me smile.)

Having rediscovered the radio during lockdown I thought I'd share the story of Peter Brough on the not.
During the 1950's there was a hugely popular radio series in the UK called "Educating Archie". It told the story of "Archie" and his father (Peter Brough). Amongst the cast was a young Julie Andrews and Beryl Reid, both playing Archie's girlfriend.
As television became popular the series transferred from the radio but gradually faded in popularity. The reason behind this was because.....Brough was a ventriloquist and Archie his dummy...and, by all accounts, not a good one.

When Beryl Reid was asked by an interviewer whether you could see Brough's mouth move she replied...
"Only when the dummy (Archie) spoke".
