An unfinished joke about dicks, dykes and fingers has been “put on hold” till the 87 year old comedian who was to star in the joke recovers from a recent fire. “It’s incredibly frustrating,” said the writer, who preferred not to be identified. “All the parts were there – the dyke double meaning, the dick, the Dutch atmosphere of permissiveness, and even the potential entrance of a van. I knew I was on to something, the gag was on the tip of my tongue, and then boom. Quite literally. To complete it now would be in poor taste"
“Now I'll have to wait till the smoke clears and the poor guy gets back on his feet so I can make a joke about lesbians in the Netherlands...regions? ....accidentally...I don't know...up a chimney? Or something."
"Actually, you know what? My heart’s not in it.”
