    ... sense of gallows humour.

    I bumped into our French neighbours this morning and said I'd ordered two megaphones so we could continue to speak to each other.

    Just a daft joke but it wasn't well received.

    I've noticed before that our gallows humour isn't universal, have any of you lot experienced it on your travels or is it specifically British.

    Perhaps, as this could become really serious, we should keep any 'virus' jokes on here.

    BTW I've just heard SAGA have suspended all cruises until at least May ...

    ... that's quite a stretch for most of their customers at the best of times.

    Stolen,

    I was asked why people are panic buying toilet rolls when the runs is not a coronavirus symptom. I told them because when one person coughs about 50 folk **** themselves

    I've stockpiled 260 sausage rolls, 140 mini quiches and 84 egg and tomato sandwiches. I misread it and thought I was supposed to be picnic buying.

    I just heard a massive cheer go up and I thought the football was back on ...

    ... then I heard them saying on the news that people shouldn't visit elderly relatives in care homes <laugh>

    Why did the coronavirus cross the road?

    To get to the other side.

    Pure camel comedic genius right there.
