Hoary humor … that just might work

A British MP passed off a canned joke as real ... and I bet it worked just fine.

U.K. minister of parliament Sajid Javid gave a speech last month in which he said, “I remember when I became an MP four years ago; I was driving home from the count. And I turned to my wife and said ‘Laura, did you ever imagine, in your wildest dreams, that one day I would actually be a Member of Parliament?’ And she looked me in the eye and said: ‘Darling, in my wildest dreams, you don’t feature at all.’”

It’s hoary humor, but I bet it worked. Don't you? —DM
