The World Expert on European Wasps

The world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make was taking a stroll around his local town. As he passed by the record shop, a sign caught his eye: “Just Released – New LP – Wasps of the World and the sounds that they make – available now”

Unable to resist the temptation, the world expert goes into the shop.

“I am the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make. I’d very much like to listen to the new LP you have advertised in the window.”

“Certainly, Sir,” said the young man behind the counter. “If you’d like to step into the booth and put on the headphones, I’ll put the LP on for you.”

The world expert on European wasps went into the booth and put on the earphones. Three minutes later, he came out of the booth and announced, “I am the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make and yet I recognised none of those.”

“I’m very sorry Sir”, said the young assistant. “If you’d care to step into the booth again, I can play you have another track.”

The world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make stepped back into the booth and replaced the headphones.

Three minutes later, he came out of the booth shaking his head. “I don’t understand it”, he said, “I am the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make, and yet I still can’t recognise any of those!”

“I’m terribly sorry, Sir” said the young man, “perhaps if you’d like to step into the booth again, you could hear another track.”

Sighing, the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make stepped back into the booth. Five minutes later, he came out again, clearly agitated.

“I am the world expert on European wasps and the sounds that they make and yet I have recognised none of the wasps on this LP.”

A look of understanding came over the face of the young assistant. “I’m terribly sorry”, said the young assistant, “I’ve just realised I was playing you the bee side.”

  9. Definitely an “f” … in fact, even a “F***”!!! Maybe the minus shouldn’t apply, but most definitely an “f”!
