I swear this happened.
While in San Francisco my GF and I were looking out the motel window and she uttered this gem:
"Do they change those flags every day?"
I said "No, why do you think so?"
She said "Because yesterday they were blowing the other way".

Sam, we will never understand woman-logic! laugh
At a script-reading many years ago the "prima donna" read, out loud to the assembled cast, that Sherlock Holmes lived at "Twenty two pound Baker Street", instead of 221b.

Joe was born with five legs and always had, as you can imagine, the greatest difficulty in buying clothes. Then he discovered a little Jewish bespoke tailor’s shop in Bethnel Green. For Joe’s daughter’s wedding, the tailor made him a superb suit of the finest worsted. The jacket was double breasted, the fancy waistcoat was lined with golden silk and the pants fitted him like a glove.

When I was riding on a dinner train in Seattle, the guide announced that "we are now traveling over the highest railway bridge in the state".
I almost choked on my meal when an angry man started yelling "where? WHERE? I CAN'T SEE IT!"

True just can't make up stuff as funny as real life is.

smile Worth a try though Ghost! How about:

“Knock! Knock!”
“Who’s there?”
“It’s the electrician, I’ve come to fix your doorbell.”

Gets worse...
Electrician rings the door bell... nothing happens. Rings again... nothing. Murmurs to himself: "Now that's what I love! Complain for ages that their door bell does not work and then they don't open the door!"

Sherlock Holmes and Thomas Edison go on a camping trip to Niagara. They retire for the night, and go to sleep. Several hours later, Holmes wakes and nudges Thomas in the ribs.

"Thomas, look over yonder and tell me what you see."

"I see the lights of the power house, my dear Holmes, lit up by the marvel of electricity."

"And what, my dear friend, are the implications of that?"

Thomas ponders for just a moment. "It is the dawn of a new age Sherlock. Unlimited power will be generated for factories and homes. Domestic machinery will follow for many tasks and give freedom from drudgery. Our streets will be lit up and safe for the traveller. Our economy will expand, our democracy will strengthen and of course, I shall make a lot of money! What does it tell you, my dear Holmes?"

"I deduce, my dear comrade, that someone has stolen our tent.”
