The Best Address in England (Adult Joke)
Published on 17th August 2010 by Brett M. Christensen
The following joke has circulated far and wide. I include it here simply because I have had a number of messages asking if the supposed address is real. Well, for the record, I can find no mention of a real village called "Erbum" or a town named "Tillet" in Hertfordshire. Moreover, "Hertfordshire" is pronounced "Hartfordshire" in the UK - "harts" not "herts" - which defangs the play on words somewhat.
The photograph used in the joke does show a real English pub called the "Cock Inn". Ironically, this pub is actually located in Hertfordshire
, although it can be found in the village of Sarratt, not 'Erbum". In fact, there are a number of "Cock Inns" in the UK.
An example of the joke:
Subject: The Best Address in England Linda Lykes
Google This - itís absolutely true!
Hertfordshire Pub Guide: The Cock Inn, Sarratt
In the sleepy village of Erbum , in the town of Tillet , Hertfordshire
lives a lady by the name Linda Lykes.
She owns the local pub called The Cock Inn.
Her mail is addressed:

If you don't get it , just keep saying it out loud!
