Here's the explanation: I thought it was an image URL I had, but it was the page URL. Of course it works as a link. Sorry, all.

Reminded by Wavid's embarrassing birthday bash, I offer the following rather feeble joke.

Hamish is to be married the next day, and he is going on his stag night. But just in case he gets bladdered, he arranges a BT alarm call for the following morning, so he won't miss the nuptials. Well, he drinks a six-pack of Stella, then White Diamond - Alcopop cocktails until he's out of it. His pals, for a joke, find some boot polish, and blacken his face before carrying him home. The next morning, the phone rings. He staggers out of bed to the bathroom and looks in the mirror... "Oh, my God," he says, "They've wakened the wrong man!"

My three favourites but I warn you they are very very bad and take some thinking about, and when you've thought about them and got them, you'll wish you hadn't :

Why did the Mexican push his wife off a cliff?
Tequila

What time is it when you go to the Chinese dentist?
two thirty

Two Hippopotamuses sitting in a mud pool, one says to the other
"I keep thinking it's Tuesday"

I did warn you

Was stuck at this myself. I think I got as far as: I keep thin... but couldn't find any more punnery within it.

I get it--because what would it matter for two mud-basking hippopotomae if it were Tuesday or any other day.

They could have arranged for a nice cup of tea and a sit down when the vicar calls on Tuesday.
