The (Good) Friday Joke and my Skankin Friday playlist to get you jiggin'

 Let's start with the tweet that most tickled my fancy this week. If you don't get the joke, click on Tim Burgess's profile and all will become clear.

And as it's Easter Weekend, here's a joke with a religious theme

Two young nuns have just arrived in New York city to work at a mission for the local drug addict community, having been raised on remote farms and  always having lived in the countryside. When Mother Superior sent them on the mission, she warned them that The Big Apple was a very different place, people behaved different, ate different foods to what they had come across before and that they mustn't be shocked and must try and fit in. 

As they sit in central park to catch their breath, they hear a push cart vendor yelling, "Hot Dogs, get your dogs here,".  Neither had ever heard of Hot dogs. One said to the other "Do you really think they really eat dogs in New York?". As she said that a queue started to form at the cart. They ask a young lady if the dog was edible, She replied "This is the best street food in NYC". At this, the nuns recall the words of Mother Superior. One said "Oh well, when in Rome..."

They make their way to the cart and one says "Two dogs, please!". The vendor is very pleased to oblige, wraps both hot dogs in foil and hands them over. Excited, the nuns hurry to a bench and begin to unwrap their 'dogs.'

The first nun, a girl familiar with the animals on the farm starts to blush, and then, after staring at it for a moment, leans to the other nun and in a soft brogue whispers:

"What bit of the dog did you get?"


It's been a long haul, but for the first time for a very long time, we can see friends and family in our gardens this weekend. So here is a suitably skankin' playlist to get you in the mood.
