" A good traveller has no fixed plans,

and is not intent on arriving "

Lao Tzu

And now for some jokes…

Mr Bean as Jesus. Or perhaps Jesus as Mr Bean?

Mr Bean as Jesus. Or perhaps Jesus as Mr Bean?

My two favourites from the Top Ten jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe
“Jesus fed 5,000 people with two fishes and a loaf of bread. That’s not a miracle. That’s tapas” Mark Nelson
“They’re always telling me to live my dreams. But I don’t want to be naked in an exam I haven’t revised for…” Grace The Child
The jokes come from a shortlist compiled by a panel of judges, who saw an average of 60 shows each at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe. The shortlisted gags were then put to 2,000 people, with no reference to the comedians who told them, who then voted for the jokes they found the funniest. The judges also released a list of jokes which just missed out on the shortlist. A selection:

“I never lie on my CV…because it creases it.”  Jenny Collier
“If you don’t know what introspection is you need to take a long, hard look at yourself” Ian Smith
“I usually meet my girlfriend at 12:59 because I like that one-to-one time”  Tom Ward
“Whenever I get to Edinburgh, I’m reminded of the definition of a gentleman. It’s someone who knows how to play the bagpipes, but doesn’t” Gyles Brandreth
