Two tasteless jokes

 

A couple of fencing contractors in northern New South Wales, having just received their cheque from the cockey, debate their next move.

'Think I'll go down to Sinny.'

'Yeah, I hear Sinny's a pretty good place.'

There's a pause.

'What route are you taking?'

'I reckon I'll take the wife. She stuck with me through the drought.'

Those two fencing contractors, taken from Phillip Adam's anthology of Australian humour, may well have travelled on to Nelligen and built our neighbours' new fence a few months ago.

They may have to be recalled to dismantle it as Council has bowed to complaints from several neighbours and refused their retrospective development application to approve this tasteless joke - see here (type in application number 106/13).
