Australian terror plan to hide plane bomb in Barbie revealed.

Which insane person thought that building a barbecue on an aeroplane was a good idea?

Eddie.

I don't know but I bet the authorities gave them a right grilling.

That's 15 s**** vanilla jokes. What happened to all the racism and sexism? Are we not doing that anymore?

Of all the jokes in the thread so far, this is by far the best ^^^

How long was the Edinburgh fringe? How many comedians attended? and finally how many shows did they put on?

And after all that the best joke was "I'm not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change". I am so pleased I decided not to waste my money.

Dave Gorman makes some good points about it here. You can't parcel comedy into discrete units, and you can't judge the gag without the context it was told in.

That is a fair point and I am fully aware that the delivery/timing is very important and the context and also the overall content of the subject.

I just think as a one liner this is pretty tame from all that talent

A show is a show. Most stand ups dont do gags as such... Time Vine is an exception and his thing is he goes for a one liner after another and you are battered into submisison. I like stand up but you have to be there to appreciate it.
