1985: Against the stereotype

The normal image of cowboys is that they are hard fighters and drinkers. Here the joke is based on the unlikeliness of this scenario.

1982: Unspoken message

There is no missing text from this picture. We are forced to deduce that the dog is indicating to his owner that he regards the tree as a mere substitute for the chair.

1986: The miracle cure

The missing text reads:

You’re right Doc. It is a miracle cure. I’ll have another.

Works faster than all that tedious analysis.

1984: He knows his limitations

The missing text reads:

There’s nothing I can do for you. You ARE a duck.

Other problems occur when human patients think they are ducks.

1952: True to type

Anton shows Mrs Henderson living up to her compulsion. It’s hardly a tendency. When he looks up the psychiatrist will inevitably catch her out.

1988: Packed like sardines

I want to thank people for their help.

I have gone for the dropbox option and I hope that I have done the right thing.

1992: A contradiction

People who seize a radio station are not likely to be moderate.

1991: Right to bear arms

This surely is an American joke. The point appears to be that Tel is focussing on the word ‘hunting’ and is ignoring the word that precedes it.

The whole point is they don’t know. They spend a great deal of time searching without any result. Very occasionally some of them get lucky – extremely lucky on very few occasions.

1982: An equality issue

This surely is an attempt to patronise the movement for women’s equality. It is not particularly strident but it is a little dig all the same.
