The jokes on the LGO

Every year the LGO buries over 18,000 complaints about local councils. Some of these complaints are made by children. As a result the LGO have been attempting, through teachers, to spread their propaganda.

Accordingly a teacher asked her class how many of them thought the Local Government Ombudsman was fair and independent. Not really knowing what a Local Government Ombudsman was, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for little Trevor. The teacher asked little Trevor why he had decided to be different. Little Trevor said, 'Because I don't think the Local Government Ombudsman is fair and independent.' The teacher asked, 'Why don't you think the Local Government Ombudsman is fair and independent?' Trevor said, 'Because I'm a Local Government Ombudsman Watcher.' The teacher asked him why he's a Local Government Ombudsman Watcher. Little Trevor answered, 'Well, my Mum's a Ombudsman Watcher and my Dad's a Ombudsman Watcher, so I'm a Ombudsman Watcher.' Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, 'If your Mum was a moron and your Dad was an idiot, what would that make you?' Little Trevor thought for a minute and then replied,  'someone who  thinks the Local Government Ombudsman is fair and independent?'
