Re: A couple from Test Set #1
You take over a bus at 09:00 and note that there is only one passengers who you know to be June who regularly gets on the bus. At the next stop 3 people board John, David and Marg, at the next stop David and June get off and Fred and Betty board, driving on Tracy and Paul get on and Betty gets off. No one gets on or off at the next stop but the following one John, Marg, Tracy and Paul get off. Continuing on the route Fred strikes up a conversation what's the name of the person he's talking to?

Aha! A bus driver's puzzle! In your case, Fred's talking to Becky, surely?

Maiden,

He's speaking with you (whoever the riddle is being told to), the noted bus driver in the first line of the riddle.

That's one of my favorites.

John

Re: A couple from Test Set #1
Fred is a loony by-the-way


That'll be the politically correct summary of Freds mental illness then won't it?

No, but it was only a joke. Nevermind if things are going to be taken so seriously I shan't bother. Thanks Glen.

And the problem with misuse of Political Correctness is that is doesn't address the real needs of people who do suffer it only addresses the petty needs of those who like bureaucracy and telling other people how to act and think. I've campaigned on many issues like disability and such and the feedback from those of which PC is used in their name is that they don't want to be singled out as special needs or granted special privileges above that of their everyday needs and they can take a joke better than anybody.

Sorry if I offended anybody, I shan't say anymore.

Re: A couple from Test Set #1

Thanks Glen.



No need to thank me, you’re very welcome Becky.

Having previously worked in the mental health sector for ten years and witnessed a couple of suicides of people with mental health issues I can only salute you and those like you who campaign endlessly towards a fairer world.

Really great joke/riddle by the way

Re: A couple from Test Set #1
I sense your sarcasm, Glen.

I don't make fun of people with mental illness and I too have worked in the caring profession for many years. Okay so my final comments were not the most tactful of words and for that I apologise but don't get sanctimonious with me please, Glen, I respect you and your art don't try to drag me down and humiliate me for a minor indiscression which was only a joke after all and in no way indicative of any ignorance or bigotry on my behalf.

Whoa, hold up! I really don't think any offence was meant, on either side. Let's pass over this one.

Fair enough, Steve. I shan't continue the matter any further.

As me and Dezolat0r have talked about once, why get offended over a few typed words!
