Frank Sinatra Buddy
Sammy from Belfast goes to Las Vegas for his holidays, and goes to see Frank
Sinatra at the Golden Thingummy. Halfway through the night he's standing in the
toilet when who should come in but the man himself.
'Excuse me, Mr Sinatra,' says Sammy, 'but I wonder if you wouldn't mind doing
me a favour.'
'Sure,' says Frank. 'What is it?'
'Well,' says Sammy, 'I've met this beautiful blonde and I'm trying to chat her
up. It would impress her a lot if you come down through the dinner tables at the
end of your show and say "Hi Sammy" as you're passing our table.'
'No problem,' says Frank, zipping himself up.
So Sammy goes back to his table and Frank goes back up on stage, and after he's
finished three encores of 'My Way' he strolls down through the tables, welcoming
the gratuitous accolades of the gathered throng. And as he's passing Sammy's table
he gives a big cheery smile and says: 'Hi there Sammy, my old buddy.'
'Piss off, Frank,' says Sammy. 'Can't you see I'm with someone?'
