      Thats really funny - Churchill had some crackers - I particularly like a recent one I heard which is more inspirational than a joke which was - "Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - good one for a writer!

      The best jokes are those that occur accidentally, in real life. Here's one:

      “I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend ... if you have one."

      — George Bernard Shaw, playwright (to Winston Churchill)

      "Cannot possibly attend first night; will attend second, if there is one."

      — Churchill's response”
