Tell us a joke.
2 hunters are in the forest hunting deer. All of a sudden one drops down to the ground and stops moving.
The other is unable to wake him calls 999.
He says: “Help, my friend has collapsed on the floor and is dead! What shall I do”
The operator replies: “Ok don’t panic, I’ll talk you through things. First we have to make sure he’s dead.”
There is a silence and then a loud BANG before the hunter comes back on the phone.
“Ok, hes definitely dead. Now what?”
