Neill Dunn left home to find his fortune in London. Heartbroken mother Maura hadn’t yet heard from him.

Her neighbour Frank was visiting London, so Maura asked him to call in on her son and tell him to write home.

“My Neilly lives in WC1.”

Arriving at Kings Cross railway station, Frank asked himself “Where the hell’s WC1?”

Then he noticed some public toilets, clearly marked ‘WC’.

In the gents the cubicles were numbered. #1 was engaged. Frank called in “Are you Neilly Dunn?”

”Yes, but I’ve run out of paper!”

“That’s no excuse for not writing to your mum!”

    Made me chuckle - the ultimate lavatory joke?

    omg that has all the attributes of a really old joke but I genuinely haven't heard that before. It's inspired. Cheers Neville!

    Thanks Drew. It is an oldie, but I’ve tried to strip all the un-PCness out of this ‘insert the ethnic or whatever’ joke.

    And brilliantly done, too, if I may make so bold.

    Can we expect the Waterloo Bridge story next although without visuals on drablr it might lose its impact?

    Now Waterloo Bridge would be a challenge; a bridge too far methinks!

    Steve, whatever it is, if anyone can do it, Neville can, I reckon

    Thanks for your faith Drew, but Waterloo Bridge is so un-PC and so visual, but for you both, I will try a drabaptation...although it depends upon its un-PCness... It is my most popular party turn though and sometimes I have had to repeat it for people at the parties who were in other rooms and missed it. It gets more outrageous with every telling. Even at my Poetry Party, I had to do tell it...and, being a significant birthday, Mrs H’s parents were there too. Shocked was an understatement! 😠

    Thanks Steve???

    Worried about the ‘I reckon’ Drew. Depending upon how ‘un-PC’ it turns out, I will try to escape the wrath of the Drablrsphere by issuing a sensitivity warning in the title.

    My neighbours Parrot can't do me laugh- groaning yet, but give him time.. :-)

    Done! This is as much a visual event as it is words... and it has grown with the telling, but that’s another story...

    Haha. It does seem to have the familiarity of an old joke even though I'm positive I've never heard it before, so that's a pretty neat trick.
