A tourist walked into a Brighton curio/antique shop.
> After looking around for a while, he noticed a very

> this bronze rat.'
> The owner replied, 'It's £12 for the rat and £100 for

> The tourist gave the owner his £12 and said, 'I'll
> just take the rat. You can keep the story.'
> As he walked off down the street he noticed a few
> real
> rats had crawled out of the sewers and begun following
> him. This was a little disconcerting, so he started
> to
> walk a little faster, but within a couple of blocks
> the swarm of rats had grown to hundreds and they were
> all squealing and screeching in a very menacing way.
> He increased his speed and ran on towards the beach,
> and as he ran, he looked behind him and saw the rats
> now numbered in their millions and they were running
> faster and faster. Now very concerned, he ran down the
> pier and threw the bronze rat far out into the water.
> Amazingly, the millions of real rats jumped into the
> water after it and were all drowned.
> The man walked back to relate this all to the shop
> owner, who said, 'Ah, you've come back for the story
> then?'
> 'No,' replied the tourist. 'I came back to see if
> you've got a bronze Muslim fundamentalist cleric, a
> paedophile, a Liverpool supporter and anything
> French.'

Now that is funny without being abusive.

I tell the same story about the pied piper of Hamlyn who after ridding a Northern Queensland town with his pipe was asked by the mayor

"Can you play a Didgeridoo?"
