OK some of the jokes and cartoons featured might be stretching the Butler connection somewhat but what the heck ! Often regarded as snooty, or a know-it-all the Butler is an easy butt of jokes but we can take it (and dish it out too - or not as in the case below).

Make 'em wait

Edward Lear, the 19th century English landscape painter, wrote affectionately of a favorite Duchess who gave enormous dinner parties attended by the cream of society.

One night she let out a ripper of a fart and, quick as a flash, she turned her gaze to her stoic butler standing, as always, behind her.

"Hawkins!" she cried, "Stop that!"

"Certainly, your Grace.", he replied with unhurried dignity, "Which way did it go?"

The butler did it

“I’d like to thank you all for you superior service over the years but  a recent letter from the Department of Social Security has decided that, as an unemployed person myself, I am no longer able to employ you...”


Mr Zwight suspected that, once again, the butler had cunningly slipped him a trick spoon with the concave side reversed.
