truth, schmuth

i was sent this one by a friend and days later it still has me chortling, 
so i thought i'd better share...

i haven't substantiated the story but let it not be said that i ever got in the way of a good one!

    [allegedly] From last week's Bristol Evening Post [whenever that may have been]
    Outside Bristol Zoo is the car park, with spaces for 150 cars and
    8 coaches.  It has been manned for 23 years by the same charming
    and very polite car park attendant with the ticket machine.  The
    charges are £1 per car and £5 per coach.  On Monday 1st June he
    did not turn up for work.  Bristol Zoo managment phoned Bristol
    City Courncil to ask them to send a replacement parking
    attendant.  The Council said "That car park is your
    responsibility"  The Zoo said "The attendant was employed by the
    City Council ....wasn't he?"  The Council said "What attendant?" 
    Gone missing from his home is a man who has been taking the car
    park fees daily, amounting to about £400 a day for the last 23
    years - tax free.
