SHARP CALLER: Time To Put A Cork In It

A CORK radio station was running a competition - words that weren't in the dictionary yet could still be used in a sentence that would make logical sense. The prize was a trip to Bali. The radio station received a call from a sharp caller…

DJ: "96FM here, what's your name?"

Caller: "Hi, me name's Dave."

DJ: "Dave, what's your word?"

Caller: "Goan... spelt G-O-A-N, pronounced 'go-an'."

DJ: "... You are correct, Dave, 'goan' is not in the dictionary. Now, for a trip to Bali: What sentence can you use that word in that would name sense?"

Caller: 'Goan f**k yourself'

The DJ cut the caller short and took other calls, all unsuccessful until:

DJ: "96FM, what's your name?"

Caller: "Hi, me name's Jeff"

DJ: "Jeff, what's your word?"

Caller: "Smee... spelt S-M-E-E, pronounced 'smee'"

DJ: "...you are correct, Jeff, 'smee' is not in the dictionary. Now, for a trip to Bali: What sentence can you use that word in that would make sense?"

Caller: "Smee again! Goan f**k yourself!"

NOTE: it appears the above item originally appeared in a newspaper, possibly Irish. See… http://www.elesoc.org/stuff/corkradio.gif, just which newspaper is unclear however. It was forwarded to Scoop by a Sharp Stories reader WHO HAS WON BEER!!!!
