You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

In a comical filler on 15/9/1922 the "Motherwell Times" ran this "joke". Judge: "You admit being drunk". Prisoner (charged with being drunk and disorderly): "Yes your honour. I was so excited at my team winning the Scottish Cup, I went and got drunk". Judge: "What team do you support?" Prisoner: "Partick Thistle your honour". Judge: "Let him go. He will not be drunk again for another 40 years." (Actually it was 49 years!)
