THE MINISTRY OF MIRTH 

Following H.M Government’s latest lockdown announcement, we have been contacted by their C.O.B.R.A Group – The Central Office of British Re-circulatable Amusements with a request to reconvene the “Ministry of Mirth”.      This is with a view to keeping up the spirits of the Ferndown U3A Members during these times of maximum tightening of restrictions, due to the continuing COVID 19 pandemic, by dispatching regular Bulletins of humour.

The Minister has responded quickly by re-contacting all our loyal local staff, who have been on furlough since the Autumn and has again set up the Ministry Office deep down in our St. Leonards semi-detached bunker.  Like the increase in the number of new virus cases every week – we are experiencing an increase in great jokes, funny stories and topical videos coming into the MoM Office. They’re not religious, racist, sexist and definitely not rude – well just a touch of spice. So, we are aiming to send out a new Bulletin to FU3A members, by email, every week – usually on a Wednesday. 

For all those members who can remember back to those earlier MoM Bulletins you can be assured of more merriment and mayhem.  For all you new members this year – you are advised to read this dispatch at a distance of 2 metres (a face covering is optional), so as not to come in close contact with these contagious funnies.

However, if you develop a new continuous bout of hysterical chuckles, try to keep the laughter in, by putting a tissue over your mouth or using your sleeve, then throw the tissue or your sleeve in the bin.  If these symptoms worsen – don’t contact us – we did warn you!!!  You are further advised to stay indoors and spread these contagious jokes onto as many people as you can, to keep the whole country laughing!!

So here is Bulletin 2021-1you have been warned.  Just click on this link below.

PLEASE STAY EXTRA CAREFUL AT THE MOMENT AS THE VACCINE-SHAPED LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL WILL BE HERE SOON!!
