“Does anyone want to buy a broken barometer? No pressure”

Some sales have high pressure, but the sale of a broken barometer? “If anyone is interested, I have a broken Barometer for sale. No pressure” was posted on Twitter by Chris Gurton on January 2013. “Classic from @themiltonjones Do you want to buy a broken barometer? There’s no pressure! #weathergag” was posted on Twitter by Joanne Bellamy on February 5, 2013.

The joke is from English comedian Milton Jones.


Wikipedia: Milton Jones
Milton Hywel Jones (born 16 May 1964) is an English comedian. His style of humour is based on one-liners involving puns delivered in a deadpan and slightly neurotic style. Jones has had various shows on BBC Radio 4 and is a recurring guest panellist on Mock the Week.
