    Ye know how the Scots are famous for their "thriftiness".
    How's this for stinginess!!This is takin'it too far.Haha.

    A Scotsman is working at a sewerage. It's a warm day, so he takes off his jacket and drapes it over a handrail - where it slips off into a vast tank of poo.
    He's just about to dive in when his mate shouts "It's nae guid tae do that, the jacket's ruined"
    He replies "Aye, ah ken, but ma sandwiches are in the pocket"

    Another one I hear you say??

    A very popular Scotsman dies in Glasgow and his old widow wishes to tell all his friends at once so she goes to the newspaper and says
    "I'd like tae place an obituary fur ma late husband" The man at the desk says "OK, how much money dae ye have?"
    The old woman replies "£5" to which the man says "You wont get many words for that but write something and we'll see if it's ok" so the old woman writes something and hands it over the counter and the man reads "Peter Reid, fae Parkheid, deid"
    He feels guilty at the abruptness of the statement and encourages the old woman to write a few more things. The old woman ponders and then adds a few more words and hand the paper over the counter again. The man then reads "Peter Reid, fae Parkheid deid. Ford Escort for sale"

    Hope you enjoyed them,LOL.
    PS We're not really that tight!!Paul

    Did you read Donald Duck comics when you were a kid?

    Scrooge McDuck was the wealthiest and the stingiest duck in the world. He and Donald and the 3 newphews had wonderful adventures.

    I think I heard that obituary joke before only it was about a Norwegian widow. Most jokes can be tweaked a little.

    Yeh,can vaguely remember seeing the fictional Scot Scrooge McDuck in cartoons many years ago,they were absolutely brilliant(gimme some o his wealth).Don't know if I can recall the comics though,it says on a google search that he first appeared as far back as 1947 in Dell Comics Four Color Comics.(Christmas on Bear Mountain).You'll not remember that either,right,LOL.
    Nephews Huey,Dewey & Louie were a pure handful,but brilliant.
    This is like a trip down memory lane rockgor.
