I love warped humour and The Goon Show is a great example. I recall Harry Secombe saying, I believe, to Milligan, when they were on an Army guard post, "I've come to relieve you", to which the reply was simply, "You're too late mate", leaving the listener to figure out the rest.
My dear departed dad, who in his younger years was the manager of some of Brisbane's great cinemas, was a great joker and punster and I remember mum telling him, when he was quite old and ill, that Jack Lemon had died. Dad said, " Someone must have squeezed him too hard".
