Poor Jokes [OFFICIAL THREAD]

A joke inscribed on a recently found Roman era stylus in London:

“I have come from the city. I bring you a welcome gift with a sharp point that you may remember me. I ask, if fortune allowed, that I might be able to give as generously as the way is long and as my purse is empty,”

 

 

...Roman sense of humour was a bit, ahem, different, to ours. I think the person is poking fun at their own lack of wealth. It's a bit like someone buying their relative a 'my niece went to Nice and all she got me was this lousy t-shirt' t-shirt.

It was in Latin originally, so maybe doesn't translate as well. Any other guesses?

My family were going over Gujerati family names, with different people offering: Paniwala; Bandookhwala; Daruwala.

So I suggested Gujranwala.

But this change of the conditions under which our influence must be used does not affect by one iota the truth that we shall enjoy no primacy in the Middle East, nor ultimately any standing in the eyes of its peoples, if we fail, with their immense material power and moral influence which we possess, to secure a steady improvement in opportunity and standards of life for both the fellahin and the partly-educated but struggling poor just above the peasant class. In some territories this leaven is already working. I felt its presence in Transjordan and Irak; and we have certainly done something (apart from the effects of Jewish development) for the people of Palestine.

Some of you aren't playing by the rules, some of these jokes aren't even jokes, let alone funny. It's like people read the 'poor...' then didn't bother to read the rest of the thread title.

 

I'm telling.

Muuuuuuuuuuuum....

Fortunately for LSE chief executive David Schwimmer, competition regulators are dinosaurs, just like human traders.

@LeftCoastMom  l didn't think your favorite, Mari and Willie's son, qualified.
