Two old women, Mabel and Hilda, were sitting on a park bench outside the local Town Hall, where a flower show was being held.
Mabel leaned over and said, “You know Hilda, life is really boring isn’t it. We never seem to have any fun these days, at least not like we used to. For £5.00, I would take my clothes off and run naked through the flower show just for some excitement”.
“You’re on !” said Hilda, reaching into her purse and holding up a £5 note, feeling almost certain that her friend would never do anything like that, but at the same time rather excited at the thought of it.
Well, without hesitation, as fast as she could, Mabel fumbled her way out of her clothes, then completely naked she streaked through the front door of the town hall.
Waiting outside on the park bench, Hilda heard a huge commotion going on inside the hall, followed by tremendous applause.
A few moments later, Mabel burst out through the door, waving her arms in the air and she was surrounded by a cheering crowd.
“How did you do?” Hilda asked.
“It was amazing”, she said, “I just won first prize as the best dried arrangement”.
