BOB'S DAILY DIARY IE THROUGH MATURIE YEARS
Steve you are quite right. 'Carry on Sergeant' was the first of the Carry On films.
A typical Jethro joke: 'I was on a night out with my mate Denzil and we missed the last bus home. We had no money for a taxi and was walking along the road when we sees a Bus Depot. Denzil says "Why don't we borrow one of they buses?" I told him to go in and see if he could start one while I kept a look-out.
I heard a bus start up and thought good, we're on our way home. Then everything went quiet and then another starts. After this happened about 5 times I shouted to Denzil asking him what he what he was doing. He said "The one we want is right at the back so I have to move the ones in front" I looked in the yard and told the daft bugger we could have taken the first bus and walked the last couple of miles.
Another one for you: Me and Denzil whent on a Safari. We were in a landrover and came across an old lion lying under a bush. He had been in the wars and had lost an eye. I said to Denzil "Can you see that lion with one eye?" He put one hand over his right eye ans said "No I can't" I told him that I'd show him where it was and threw a rock in the direction of the lion. Well, I only hit it on the head and he was not best pleased. The lion started running towards us and I said "Run Denzil or he'll have us for lunch". "Why should I" said Denzil "You threw the rock"
