It is unlikely that many gardeners revel in the delights of lawn turf humour but as with all hobbies and recreations, there are always those little things that give rise to laughter among like minded people. Here is a small compilation that will hopefully bring a wry smile to even the most serious turf enthusiast.
Every summer two brothers, Jim and Jack, would take it in turns to mow the lawn turf. When it came to Jack's turn one year, the mower simply broke down. Jack asked Jim to mend the mower because Jim was mechanically minded. Jim said that he would but he kept putting it off.
After a couple of weeks, Jack decided the only way to get Jim to mend the mower was to shame him into doing so. So, one day when Jim was out, Jack took a small pair of nail scissors and began cutting the turf with them in the hope that Jim would see him and take pity on him. When Jim arrived home from town he asked Jack what on earth he was doing.
"Well," said Jack, "You promised to mend the mower over a fortnight ago, and so I thought I'd better a start cutting the turf until you get round to it."
"I see" said Jim, and with that he went quickly indoors. Jack was confident his plan had worked.
A few minutes later, Jim reappeared from the house and handed Jack an electric toothbrush. Jack looked perplexed and asked Jim what it was for.
Jim said, "Well, when you've finished cutting the turf, you may as well start sweeping the paths."
