AND FINALLY: Joke of the year

The Edinburgh Fringe offers annually a non-existent prize for the funniest joke at the festival. BTN did not agree with the winner, something about broccoli, even with the writer a Luton Town supporter.

Here is our listing taken from the BBC website where you can enjoy the official top 10.

1. "Someone stole my antidepressants. Whoever they are, I hope they're happy." – Richard Stott

2. "What's driving Brexit? From here it looks like it's probably the Duke of Edinburgh." – Milton Jones

3. "A thesaurus is great. There's no other word for it." – Ross Smith

Henk Heiden, The Netherlands

What about this one from Pieter Elbers, the CEO of KLM earlier this year in an interview: “And we don't fly because we like it so much, we do it for our customers.” This is for me the Joke of 2019 in aviation in The Netherlands.
