“Your round."/"So are you, you fat bastard!” (bar joke)

An English joke features two blokes drinking at a pub. “Your round (of drinks—ed.),” says one. “So are you, you fat bastard!” replies the other.

The joke was posted to the newsgroup alt.tasteless.jokes on October 13, 1998. Authorship is frequently credited to British prop comedian Tommy Cooper (1921-1984).


Wikipedia: Tommy Cooper
Thomas Frederick Cooper (19 March 1921 – 15 April 1984) was a British prop comedian and magician. Cooper was a member of the Magic Circle, and respected by traditional magicians. He was famed for his red tarboosh, and his appearance was large and lumbering, at 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 m) and more than 15 stone (210 lb; 95 kg) in weight. On 15 April 1984, Cooper collapsed with a heart attack on live national television. He died soon afterwards.
