Classic Jackson Humour - How To be Banned from B&Q:

Method 1
Gordon Barking was today barred from B&Q shops in the south of England. As he entered the store in Portsmouth the man on the door greeted him by asking if he wanted decking.  Gordon, luckily, got the
first punch in.

Method 2:
When asked if there is a B&Q in Dublin, O'Flaherty said he didn't
know but that there were two D's
in Dundalk.

A Jackson Story

There were two brothers one of whom had really large eyes and the other huge ears.

They went for a job on a ship. The captain said, 'What can you do? 'Well, I can be a lookout,' said the guy with the large eyes.

'What about him?'
said the captain. 'Well he's
my brother, so he's

got to come with me.'

The captain said, 'OK, you can be lookout and take him with you to the crow's
nest and keep him out of my way!'

They had been at sea for a week when the whistle from the crow's

nest sounded in the wheelhouse! 'Ship bearing port 10'. The captain looked at the radar, not an echo on the scope.

'Are you sure?'
he enquired. 'Positive', came the reply, 'and what's
more its

'How do you know that?'
he asked.

Tales from the Ship's
DeckJackson Humour

Trawler Skipper Jackson had heavy
session in a pub on the docks.  Feeling the worse for wear he asked his mate, also a skipper, if he could get his head down on board his boat to get ready for some more in the evening.

'Yeh, go ahead', said
my oppo.

I was shaken awake by one of the crew saying the skipper wanted me on the bridge.

Got up there feeling disoriented and wondering why it was so dark. I was greeted by words l will never


Five days later, all spent trawling in the southern North Sea, we arrived back in Pompey and went straight to the
pub - as you do.

Jackson's Moonshine Refrain

Jackson's late, lamented Irish Grandmother; Jane Cronin [d.1965], often
used the words from The Moonshiner song when she told him Irish tales, songs
and stories.

I'll eat when I'm hungry, I'll drink when I'm dry
And the *moonshine
don't kill me, I'll live til I die.

This traditional Irish folk song was made famous by the Clancy Brothers.
Will was known to sing it in his college days. 'Oh dear, better forgotten,'
he says.

*Moonshine = Moonshine (meaning illicit distillation, also called white
lightning, mountain dew, hooch, "Tennessee white whiskey", and many other
names) is an illegally produced distilled beverage. The word is believed to
derive from early English smugglers and illegal Appalachian distillers who
clandestinely (i.e., by the light of the moon) produced and distributed
whiskey. Moonshine is also known as Poteen in Ireland.

Cat Selling Fish

Funny Fishing Joke from JacksonFunny Fishing Joke - Jackson

While out in his boat the other day [see picture right] a bloke spotted
Jackson fishing. He watched as Jackson opened his tackle box and took out a
mirror. Being curious, the man piloted his boat over to Jackson and asked, '
Hey, mate, what is the mirror for?'

'That's my secret way to catch fish,' answered Jackson mysteriously. 'You
shine the mirror on the top of the water. The fish notice the spot of sun on
the water above and they swim to the surface. Then I just reach down and net
them and pull them into the boat.'

'Blimey, does that really work?' asked the gullible man.

'You bet it does,' smiled Jackson smugly.

'I don't suppose you'd be interested in selling that mirror? I'll give
you £30 [$50USD] for it,' asked the man.

'Well, ok then,' replied Jackson.

After the money changed hands, the man enquired, 'By the way, mate, how
many fish have you caught this week?'

'You're the sixth,' laughed Jackson happily.

Big Catch on Fisherman Jackson's
BoatFunny Fishing Joke - Jackson

A trawler caught a torpedo in its net. There followed a hurried radio conversation with QHM [Queen's
Harbour Master].

Fishing vessel [anonymous], 'We have torpedo on board request
instructions, over. 'This is QHM, please give current position.'

Fishing vessel (anon), 'I am presently tied up outside Bridge Tavern in Camber Dock, Old Portsmouth. 'Clunk!'
- sound of
transmitter as it fell from the operator's

As a result of this: Old Portsmouth sealed off pubs around the Camber area; houses were evacuated; the Isle of Wight ferries were stopped.

This is
one of many true stories told by 'Fisherman Jackson.'

Trawler Tales from Jackson

The following unusual, perhaps amusing items have been found by Jackson when he was a fisherman:

In the Solent:

  • Fossilised sharks teeth
  • Dozens of canon balls
  • Various bones including a human skull
  • Bits of Mary
    Rose [flagship of Henry V111]
  • One ton German parachute mine 2nd World War 'live'
  • Hand grenade including pin
  • Various dud torpedoes dismantled on board and sold for scrap
  • 'Live'
    aircraft canon shells
  • £20
    note [Jackson bought 1st round]
  • Various bits of contraband '
  • German e-boat torpedo tube made of bronze and sold as scrap, inside was a 'live'

In the North Sea:

  • Woolly mammoth
  • Yellow Ford Fiesta [12 miles off southern North Sea - it had a failed MOT]

Politically Correct?

The scenario: A boat tied up in dock; pan out to lots of people in suits - camera crews everywhere.

What do we see, but a deckhand on board his trawler mending nets. A man
in a suit is being filmed by the BBC news team: 'Excuse me, said the suit, I'm Doctor Smith* the minister for agriculture and fisheries, what are your views on the common market fisheries policies?'

Trawler man Jackson: 'Ain't got none mate, but while you're 'ere can you 'ave a look at my piles!'

* Name changed to protect the guilty.

Juanita - One-eaterOne-eater Juanita

Jackson has told Will that there was, for years at Portsmouth Camber
docks, a Spanish trawler man who had only one tooth.

His nickname was ...... Juanita. [one eater]

Gruesome Jackson Humour

Jackson saw an old friend walking along the sea front at Southsea. 'Hello Harry,' he said, 'How are you?'
It was only then that Jackson realised that Harry only had one leg !

'What happened
to you?'
he inquired. 'My wife left me so I jumped in front of a train but it only took my leg off.'

Jackson then noticed that Harry only had one hand and in its place was a hook. 'What happened to
your hand?'
he asked.

'I tried it again, 'he replied,' and the train just took my hand off.'
Jackson story pirate

Jackson, again noticed that Harry also had a glass eye. 'What's
up with your eye?'
he asked, this
time with considerable trepidation.

'Well,' said the Harry, 'after two
attempts to take my life I thought God doesn't want me to die, so I looked
to the sky and said 'thank you, God', and a passing
seagull made a deposit right in my eye ! ! !

'But you can't
loose an eye through bird muck.'
insisted Jackson.

Harry looked down at the floor and said, 'I'd only had the hook for three days!'
