“I’ve been bored recently so I’ve decided to take up fencing. The neighbors want it back”

There’s a difference between “fencing” (a sport) and “fencing” (that goes around a house), but there are jokes. “I’ve been bored recently so I’ve decided to take up fencing. The neighbours say they will call the police unless I put it back. #win100” was posted on Twitter by Pel on January 25, 2011.

“jimmycarr for a hobby in my spare time I’ve decided to take up fencing! But my neighbour says if I don’t put it back he’ll call the council” was posted on Twitter by Brian Weatherall on June 10, 2011. It’s not known if British stand-up comedian Jimmy Carr or someone else first told the joke.
