PostSubject: by appointment to the queen??   Thu Jul 13, 2017 1:25 pm

On a visit to London, an Australian applied for a job as a royal footman. Armed with his references from his previous job, he went along to the interview, where he was asked to drop his trousers.

Seeing the Australian's puzzled expression, the interviewer explained, "Don't worry, it's merely a formality. You see, footmen are often required to wear kilts when accompanying the Queen to Balmoral, so we like to examine the knees of applicants to check for any unsightly scars."

The Aussie duly dropped his trousers to allow his knees to be inspected.

"Excellent," said the interviewer. "Now could you show me your testimonials?"

Thirty seconds later, the Aussie found himself lying in the corridor, nursing a black eye.

"Strewth," he said, picking himself up and dusting himself down. "I reckon I'd have got that job if I'd known the lingo a little better."
