master brummie
A helicopter circled and hoovered overhead
As the man by the jeep was pronounced dead
His grass grew too long
He knew he was wrong
When the lawnmower cut him down instead

master brummie
The lawnmower asked  jeep for a date
'I'm afraid you're a little too late....
Helicopter asked me first....
and then there was hearse.........
but I've chosen a lorry from the freight'

A helicopter large and brown
Was inverted in flight [upside down]
Said a man in a jeep
Who was bovering sheep
That lawnmover's too big for this town​

For Ossie, upside down chopper, rotor cutting grass, get it?
 

SuBee

master brummie
The lawnmower moaned very loud
At a jeep on the grass parking proud
'Oi - theres no parking  here
unless you buy me a beer'
'me too?' asked the helicopter through a cloud


OK OK OK - so its me day off and I dont want to do the ironing :p
 

SuBee

master brummie
The jeep asked the lawnmower  to wed
now widowed, as the helicopter was dead
'I've a passion for blades.......
of all types and grades.....
Pom swiftly picked up her sword and fled

A helicopter, a lawnmower and a jeep
Were trying hard to get back to sleep
The rotor went Whirrrrrrrrrr
Beaker went Grrrrrrrrrrrr
And after that there wasnt a peep



(where do I collect the prize?)

The lawn mower man was a nut
And while driving his jeep hit a rut
He spilled his beer from its butt
and so the helicopter was kaput
But before you all say tut tut
At least the grass grew up half cut

Guest
A lawnmower man from old Brum
Took a helicopter ride to Northum
The copter did crash
So in a jeep he did stash
with his auntie and uncle and mum

Guest
He said: by hel-I-copter
As I smashed into the jeep
When my lawnmower ran amok
And ran over all the sheep

Guest
A helicopter pilot from Meath
Took his wife for a spin in his jeep
She spied a lawnmower
And cried out: I know ‘er
Then took a potshot at her feet

:angel: Ok, Ok I'll go first...:rolleyes:

There was once a lady from Bristol
Who was in love with Billy Crystal
They met each night at the jetty
Where they shared a biscuit
On a plate of Spaghetti

Not the best but a start!

There once was a family historian
His research was mainly Victorian
His Mom came from Brum
His Dad played a drum
And granddad played the accordion.:D Well I tried!

There once was a girl named Crystal
Who once got caught in a mistral
She sat under a tree
Had a buiscuit for tea
When spaghetti would have been more digestible.......... Well I tried:D
 

Charlie

knows nowt
The crystal is laid on the table
Champagne (it says on the label)
But a biscuit and tea
Is OK for me
No spaghetti - I'm wearing my sable.

very old brummie
:rolleyes: I can eat a biscuit and not leave a crumb.
I can find my way round Spaghetti junction in Brum.
I know a girl called Crystal but that's another tale;)
and if I ever tell I would surely end in jail
