This is a question Messing with people's heads

Theophilous Thunderwulf says: What have you done to fuck with people? Was it a long, carefully planned piece of psychological warfare, or do you favour quick, off-the-cuff comments that confuse the terminally gullible? Have you been dicked with, and only realised many years later? Are you being dicked right now? Tell us everything.

Suffolk 'n good.
AB's story of his grandad messing with a cockney reminded me of one from the same area of East Anglia. My grandparents came from there and I lived and worked in Norfolk and Suffolk for many years.

Let me start by saying that these stories nearly always feature a rural type and a cockney so are possibly apocryphal in nature. My take on the origins of this kind of tale is that as Norfolk and Suffolkers were increasingly exposed to people from London they labeled them all as "cockney", as you would. However this was told to me first hand by an old boy I worked with who hung out in the pub all weekend, every week, for most of his working life with these characters. I believe him.

They do say that everyone has one book in them, I believe this often applies to jokes too, you may think one up and have to wait, perhaps years, until the perfect moment presents itself and you can strike like a cobra.

This is the story of Walter's moment.

This brief exchange took place in a rural pub not a stone's throw from the location of ABs story and features Walter, a merry, wrinkly old rustic who always had a pint and a pipe on the go.
A stranger entered the bar red faced and somewhat flustered and asked loudly "Excuse me mate, I'm really late for a wedding, can anyone tell me the quickest way to Cockfield?"
Without missing a beat Walter removes his pipe from his mouth and asks " Oim a bit deaf bor, did yew ask the quickest way t'get tew Cockfield?"
The stranger nods his affirmation.
"Well", says Walter slowly, savouring his moment and nodding towards the barmaid, "Usually I finds the quickest way is to buy Chloe here a double brandy"

Well then
She should have learned not to drink so much after the first time, shouldn't she?
