“My girlfriend said I wasn’t a true cockney, so I pushed her down the apples and oranges”

“My girlfriend said I was a rubbish cockney, so I pushed her down the apples and oranges! Lol.”

“My mate said I wasn’t a true cockney, so I pushed him down the apples and oranges....” was posted on Twitter by The Dad Joke Man on August 19, 2018.
