Welcome to the board.
Five minutes here, and you're on the Board already? You'll be Chairperson by the end of the week, at this rate. Welcome!

The only languages I know are computer languages.

I might learn to speak Scottish one day.

I feel proud that I can listen to Irish, Scottish, Liverpudlian etc stand-up comedians without having to put the CC on, my family thinks they are speaking a different language.

Are any of you comfortable speaking a foreign language? I've always been ashamed that I did little to develop the stuff I learned at school. (I studied French, German and Russian). I also had a French grandmother and a father who was completely bi-lingual with a near-perfect knowledge of Spanish thrown in. I guess that, if I'd practised the languages, I would have been more fluent but laziness took over. It would take me a long time in the company of French and German speakers to get back to anything like the level I used to have at school. (My Russian was always horrendous). It embarrasses me that I've been visiting Portugal for more than 15 years and all that I can manage is the odd "obrigado". Shameful.
For some reason, I know that the Sioux for beer is "M'nee-bee-gah". Extremely useful.
Anyway, back to my original question--are any of you comfortable speaking a foreign language?

2. I caught my son chewing on electrical cords. Bright lad.

That's good. But it's not the line I have.


3. I was going to tell a time-travelling joke. But I already did that tomorrow.

That's actually better than my one: But you guys didn't like it.


4. During my first month on the road-paving crew, they gave me all the worst jobs. I endured all of it, up until they put me on paint duty. That crossed a line.

Again nice. But the one I have is better.


5. Somebody wrote a quote at the bottom of the swimming pool. But it was too deep for me.

Spot on!


10. What do you call an old snowman? A puddle.

I have: Water. Yours is better.

Can you give the punchline for each of these dad jokes?

1. Two melons have a forbidden love. They try to run away together many times, but are caught every time.

2. I caught my son chewing on electrical cords. Bright lad.

3. I was going to tell a time-travelling joke. But I already did that tomorrow.

4. During my first month on the road-paving crew, they gave me all the worst jobs. I endured all of it, up until they put me on paint duty. That crossed a line.

5. Somebody wrote a quote at the bottom of the swimming pool. But it was too deep for me.

6. What’s the difference between a good burger and a shooting star?

7. I'm telling dad jokes.

8. What do you call a magician who has lost his magic?

9. Why are koalas not officially recognised as bears?

10. What do you call an old snowman? A puddle.

That's all from me for now.
