“I was massively overcharged for a jelly this morning. It was daylight wobbly”

Jelly (such as Jell-O) wobbles. A joke was posted on Twitter by Pablo Egglescobar on June 11, 2011:

“I was overcharged for a jelly this morning. It was daylight wobbly.”

The joke is that some people (such as cartoon character Elmer J. Fudd) might pronounce “robbery” as “wobbly.” Egglescobar has posted the joke several times with several slight variations. “I was overcharged for a jelly this afternoon. Daylight wobbly” was posted on Twitter on March 10, 2012. “I was charged £100 for some jelly this morning. It was daylight wobbly” was posted on Twitter on February 5, 2014.
