A Gag from Eric and Ernie:

Eric Morecombe and Ernie Wise used to end their shows like this: Eric would start a gag which Ernie would immediately interrupt with the shocked cry, “YOU can’t tell that one… this is a family show!” Here, for the benefit of the uninitiated, is the gag, retold for you in its entirety, by yours truly:

There were two old men, sitting in a deck-chair; one said to the other, “It’s nice out, isn’t it?” To which the other replied, “Yes, but you’d better put it away; there’s a policeman coming!”

Boom-BOOM! (He said, unashamed and unapologetic for this glorious piece of British comedy history!)
