These jokes were interspersed with the pick-a-box prizes. Some jokes were good, some not. Some prizes were good, some were not, but it was all a laugh a minute.

Who wants an empty mouth guard box?  Or a $7 Fiji bank note?*  Or the old brick from the steps that was rescued during renovations?  Jill Segan who won it certainly didn’t want it. She gave it back quick smart. Her consolation prize was a chicken which was gratefully received. All those people who unfortunately chose the boxes containing weird prizes still got a chicken.

There were other prizes; dinner vouchers from Box Hill RSL, Applewood gift bags, a cashmere scarf,  jewellery and hampers from Angoves Wines.

So no prize winner was disappointed.

Here are two of Brian’s better jokes…..well, I thought them better.

1. A Chinese family of five, named Chu, Bu, Hu, Tu and Fu decided to immigrate to the USA. In order to get a visa, they had to adapt their names to American standards. Chu became Chuck, Bu became Buck, Hu became Huck, Tu became Tuck, Fu decided to stay in China.

2. Someone asked me how I would like to die. I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my Grandfather. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

* The bank note IS a collectors item! It was issued when the Fijian Rugby 7s won their Olympic gold medal. It is the only $7 note in the world.


Next Thursday night is an Angoves Wine tasting night, come and replenish part of your cellar…….Lyn.

Different facial expressions depending on the prize.

 An appropriate prize for Sandy!
