Joke texts on mobiles really are the cesspit of ‘humour’

Donald Trump - has caused outrage again

CLIVE SMITH: What’s wrong with Trump calling it as it?

Have your say

Within 24 hours of the earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan, the first ‘joke’ had arrived by text on my mobile phone.

These things really are the cesspit of ‘humour’ and I’ve long wondered who could be bothered to make them up.

Then a friend came up with a possible solution which sounds so feasible it’s a wonder I hadn’t heard it posited before.

He reckons the mobile phone companies themselves employ people to come up with these ‘gags’ on the sound basis that some people cannot wait to pass them on.

The more texts – the more cash. Simples.
