A Yorkshire gin company is trying to raise morale of its customers by compiling the world’s best gin jokes collection.
York Gin has already published a list gin jokes, quotes and puns on its website. Now it has launched a competition to get people to read their collection – and add any that are missing.
Co-founder Emma Godivala said: “We realise this is a really stressful time for everyone. People are either bored, panic-stricken – or worked off their feet. So we just wanted to give people a giggle – and make the best collection of gin funnies around.
“We’ve already received some excellent additions to our collection. My new favourite is:
When Charles Dickens orders a gin the barman asks ‘Olive or Twist?’
But my own favourite is still Dorothy Parker’s:
‘I like to have a Martini, two at the very most, after three I’m under the table, after four I’m under my host.’
York Gin – like many other companies – has seen its business collapse with the coronavirus lockdown. So it is moving its operation online. As well as free delivery in the local area, the company is launching a Friday Night Gin Quiz.
Anyone can join on Facebook – they’re recommended to pour themselves a G&T. Then a member of the company gives a quick interesting talk before doing a fun quiz – 100% gin-related.
