After having their 11th child, a Liverpool couple decided that was enough, as the social wouldn't buy them a bigger bed and they weren't strong enough to nick one.
The husband went to his doctor and told him that he and his wife didn't want to have any more children.
The doctor told him there was a procedure called a vasectomy that would fix the problem but it was expensive. A less costly alternative was to go home, get a firework, light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10.
The Scouser said to the doctor, "I may not be the smartest guy in the world, but I don't see how putting a firework in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me."
"Trust me, it will do the job", said the doctor.
So the man went home, lit a banger and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count, "1, 2, 3, 4, 5," at which point he paused, and placed the beer can between his legs so he could continue counting on his other hand.

Why 11th child, why does that affect the size of the bed the couple need surely despite the number of children a couple have they still only need a double bed.
How do you nick a bed?
Why considering the family are known to social services and so are in receipt of free care and services and presumably regardless of their income a vasectomy would be free on the NHS, the expense should not come into it?
I am no doctor or pyrotechnic but a firework that one could buy in a regular shop that could fit into a beer-can, I imagine would do little or no damage to the can and certainly not cause enough damage to sever the vas deferens.
The whole joy of the joke apart from the use of outrageous stereotypes is the doctor knew the patient ( Mr Liverpool) would need to use his hands in order to count to 10, and in by doing so would need to put the can ( but how he would know this is a mystery , but brilliant anyways) in between his legs right under the offending articles.

ps did you notice it's sunny outside?
( yes i appreciate the irony of pointing out it is sunny outside and a far better use of time than being on here.....whilst being on here)
(( and yes i do have a sense of humour just not as cutting and witty as redundant whoever))

To test the joke, I counted my fingers from 10 down. Right hand, 10, 9, 8 , 7, 6. Then the 5 on the other hand = 11. I need to see that doctor.

Would the joke be funny with the omission of Liverpool couple? does that make it funny? What if we changed Liverpool for Lewes couple? or lesbian or black or any subgroup you want to use?
I am sure many will cry out that I am comparing apples with pears? am i , its ok to suggest people from Liverpool are dole scrounging , excessive breeding , work-shy thieves?
so the argument goes:
That's ok but i would draw the line at?
where do you draw the line people? why is it funny that it is a Liverpool couple but not a Lewes couple, why not immigrant couple? because you would find that uncomfortable to laugh at wouldn't you?

Why is any joke funny Padster? This joke is funny because it works. If it was about a Lewes couple or an immigrant couple it would not work, in the same way your joke about the clown would not work if you replaced the word 'clown' with 'a Lewes man', or 'an immigrant'. Doesn't mean you have anything against clowns though, does it?
Having a sense of humour is always useful. Perhaps you had better start there.

It's "not rocket science", at least your trying to answer my question instead of just accusing me of not having a sense of humour.
So the point is sound, a joke is funny because it makes people laugh, yet there are things we don't laugh at because we deem them harmful and so not funny, eg jokes about race colour or creed. My argument is why is this joke funny? I believe it's attempt at humour is to take a stereotype a Liverpool couple who have had lots of children , abuse the welfare state, think nothing of thieving and as a result of this stereotype are thick hence the joke being funny because their GP will recognise this from who they are. have I got that right? anyone .......because if I have it's NO different than making jokes that if posted on here many of you would be up in arms.
I am just saying some people on here don't seem to have consistency in what is acceptable or not.
Your right rocket science the joke would not work if you replaced the subject to Lewes couple or clown or immigrant but sadly their is a stereotype of some people from Liverpool being work-shy so it works because it's based on a negative stereotype. I am repeating myself now so believe what you want but a different point of view is good, I think.
