Tibballs Tales #3 - The Cherry Lane Joke

When we were kids, I was maybe 12 and my sister 10, my sister took a fancy to a joke. Night after night we would be sitting on Mum and Dads bed and she would tell it.

The joke went something like:

"A boy came in late to class and the teacher asked 'Johnny, where have you been?'. Johnny responds 'Sorry Miss, I have been up Cherry Lane'. He is told to sit down.

"A short time later a second boy comes into class even later. The teacher asked 'Tom, where have you been?'. Tom responds 'Sorry Miss, I have been up Cherry Lane'. He is told to sit down.

"Not long after that a third boy comes in late. The teacher asked 'Bobby, where have you been?'. Bobby responds 'Sorry Miss, I have been up Cherry Lane'. He is told to sit down.

"Then a girl comes into the classroom. The teacher asks, frustratedly 'I suppose you have been up Cherry Lane too?'. To which the girl responds 'I AM Cherry Lane'."

At this point my sister would roll around the bed laughing. And we would laugh too. I can still remember the joy she got from the joke... even though more than 25 years have passed!
