You look a right plank

I was walking down the stairwell to the canteen when two young chaps started following behind me. I did a double take and realised they were wearing exactly the same clothes – white trainers, skinny blue jeans and plaid shirts. Awkward, I thought.

As we walked down the stairs they started talking to each other, and I realised they were mates. I couldn’t resist.

“I’m sorry, I couldn’t help but noticing you’re wearing exactly the same clothes…”

Bloke A (rather defensively): “No we’re not”

“Yes you are… look, same trainers, jeans and shirts…”

Stonewall silence. I was sensing hostility (unsurprisingly), so I told a brief and possibly made-up anecdote about when me and a friend turned up to the pub in the same t-shirt.

Bloke B: “Yeah, I hate it when that happens. You look like a right plank”.

Today’s soup is carrot and cumin.

  1. Glad you are posting more often. Your hilarious posts cheer me up every time!
    Thanks for starting my gloomy, drizzly day with a smile.

  2. Did they have matching hairstyles as well – short back and sides but sort of asymmetrically spiky at the top and front?
