Humour 

A man is in a queue at the Super Market when he notices the rather dishy blonde behind him has just raised her hand and smiled hello to him. He is rather taken aback that such a looker would be waving to him, and although familiar he can't place where he might know her from, so he says "sorry do you know me?"
She replies "I maybe mistaken, but I thought you might be the father of one of my children!"
His mind shoots back to the one and only time he has been unfaithful, “Christ!” He says, "are you that cracking stripogram on my stag night that I had on the snooker table in front of all my mates whilst your mate whipped me with some wet celery”
“No” she replies, “I'm your son's English Teacher!”
