Wars and rumours of wars. Don't shoot the messenger: the jokes and rumours in here are awful. Especially the ones about the British.

One thing I found out while researching this, children:

Your grandparents or great-grandparents, depending on how old you are, told 'Little Moron' jokes. smiley - groan

This proves two things:

1. 'Dad jokes' are not age-dependent. They originated in misspent childhoods.

2. Political correctness is not new. The 'Little Moron' was a stand-in for the ethnic groups they did not want to implicate in these jokes. (In Pittsburgh, the Polish joke will never die because it is told only by Polish Americans these days.)
