The actual joke (written and presented by Barry Hilton)
Hello I’m Thomas
I need to tell you a few things about my dear friend George on his wedding day.
- I’m the best man, which confuses me a bit, because if I really was the best man I’d be the one getting married to Debby today.
- Sam is a great musician, and he is both humble and quite in nature. So humble in fact he uses another name on stage.
- He’s so quiet he asked Debby four times to marry him, eventually she heard him.
- He loves soccer, particularly Man Utd, but Sam, I don’t thing taking Debby to a football match at Old Trafford would be Debby’s idea of a romantic start to the honeymoon, saying that if you do, you wont score for a long time
- He’s a web designer, that means he plays around a lot on a keyboard, but tonight i think he’ll playing with something else, it’s not what you think. He’s taking an iPad with him.
