It is a joke by a comeden from Liverpool called Stan Boardman
During a German bombing raid over Liverpool in the Second World War Stan's bother was killed.
Stan told loads of jokes over the years about the German Focker Wolf, even though that is it's correct name there are English speaking people who confuse Focker (correct spelling) with a similar sounding word.
The press in Britian at the time would often ask Stand what it was he was saying and because no one could prove that he was saying anything other than Focker he was often on prime time TV*.
The video below is of a talk show programme, which for first time he indicated that he was saying something other than Focker.
*Or as they say in Britain, Before The Watershed.
Just wanted to keep the record straight (especially since I just told a Fokker joke in the travel stories thread yesterday! ;-)
You are incorrect - even Stan used the incorrect spelling, I promise, even though Stan sold T-shirts with the spelling Fokker on them, even Stan got it wrong, I might not be a legal editor, but for years I have been interested in Military history.
FOCKER IS THE CORRECT SPELLING
A Fokker is in fact a Dutch plane - Check it out - Fokker is Dutch
Focker is German
But Thanks all the same
Check this one as well (So and So)
And though this is the German company that made the aircraft - the spelling here is Focke - but should you be bothered to check further you will find that in the past there was an R at the end
You really are stretching the bounds of credulity here.
Maybe you should join this forum, where people seem to actually know what they're talking about:
The WW II PLANE WHICH WE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT WAS NOT A FOKKER - GOOGLE WW II GERMAN AIRCRAFT - AND IF YOU TAKE A little TIME YOU WILL EVEN FIND PHOTOGRAPHS
It seems So and So is blindly going around in the dark and so she cannot make out, one Fokker from the Focker.
I am sure she will find the right Focker one day, but she does not realise that the right Focker is the German Focker and not the Dutch Fokker. I can understand her dilemma. apparently she likes a good Fokker joke. So at the end of the day I can understand why she wants to make sure she has got the right Focker.
Women are like that.
Where as where most men are concerned they do not care if it is one Fokker or the other Focker
With Full Credit
BTW with the correct spellings of Fokker or Focker
No other similar sounding words accepted
Because some Fokkers can get people to pull their hair out
So get the Focker right
He thinks he can do a good Focker joke
Here is the thing I don't get.
I come in and check the thread out and leave for hours and get some work done. When I comeback, hours later, the same people have been here that entire time posting crap. The same ones that were in here for hours before that also.
Then later today or tomorrow or next week the same people will be starting or joining threads whining about not selling anything. Doh!
Clean the bath and the kitchen sink and then see what happens
Should you think your mind is above those who are here
Otherwise clean your next door neighbours house
