Driving in Great-Britain

A street in an English town. A policeman stops a car. The driver is a foreigner...

Policeman : (Holding up his hand) Stop !
Driver : What s the matter ?
Policeman : Why are you driving on the right side of the road ?
Driver : Do you want me to drive on the wrong side ?
Policeman : You are driving on the wrong side !
Driver : But you said I was driving on the right side &
Policeman : That s right. But you re on the right, and that s wrong !
Driver : What a strange country ! If right is wrong, I m right when I m on the wrong side of the road. So why did you stop me ?
Policeman : My dear Sir, you must keep to the left. The right side is the left !
Driver : It s like a looking glass ! I ll try to remember. Well, I want to go to Bellwood. Will you kindly tell me the way ?
Policeman : Certainly ! At the end of this road, turn left.
Driver : Now let me think & Turn left ! In England, left is right and right is wrong. Am I right ?
Policeman :You ll be right if you turn left. But if you turn right, you ll be wrong &
Driver : Thank you very much ! It s as clear as daylight !

Dead good !

A duel was fought between Alexander Shott and John S. Nott.
Nott was shot and Shott was not. In this case, it is better to be
Shott than Nott. It may be that the shot Shott shot, shot Nott,
or, as accidents with firearms are frequent, it may be possible
that the shot Shott shot, shot Shott himself !
We think, however, that the shot Shott shot, shot not Shott, but
Nott. Anyway, it is hard to tell who was shot and who was not &
