Here is a large-ish collection of allegedly funny material. You may
find some of it offensive (sexual and language content), and I've even
marked the ones that probably aren't suitable for over-18s with
so they can find them more easily.
A lot of these files are from the late 80s and early 90s. If you're
the author of anything here and don't see a credit,
let me know. Most of this has a
British flavour, and some of it is distinctly Oxford University related.
You can quickly go to these section headings:

"We have, then, temperature of Heaven, 525°C. Temperature of Hell,

He was in an odd mood when I got to the bar, I thought it

could talk more privately.
