This has reminded me of a silly 'Knock, Knock' joke I made up for my eldest godson on Christmas Day a few years ago, when he was making up 'Knock, Knock' jokes with no proper punch line (you know how young children are when they discover jokes!). It went well on the day, but badly on his first day back at school. The joke goes as follow;

Knock, Knock.
Who's there?
Kungf!
Kungf Who?
HiYah!, and a joke chop to the neck.

As I said, it went well on the day. I made sure not to connect, and Charley almost fell off his chair laughing. He remembered most of the joke (except one bit), and on his first day back at school told it to his best friend. Unfortunately he connected, and his Mum had some explaining to do when she collected him that evening!

James, that's a good one but be so careful with any sort of strike, joke or otherwise, to the neck as they can kill. Get it wrong and you can go through the carotid artery.

It's the technique we practice with the utmost care when training because it can be lethal.

If I'd have bought what I saw there and really wanted then yes, a trailer would have definitely been needed James, and a crane :wink:

It was a CNC milling machine. Only £11,000 8-)

I would love a milling machine. I could do so much with one...
