That's literally the first gag that comes up if you Google "I'm sorry I haven't a clue Samantha"
I can state quite honestly that I typed that up from memory, which is fading a bit.

Now. Find the ice-cream man.

I wrote a terrible joke years ago. It's about somewhere. But I am a busy bloke today and cannot be bothered to find the link.

As you may well know, Samantha never existed. Jon Naismiths apologies are well recorded. (I got his Christian name wrong.)

I've just copied and pasted this from the article in the link below. You've got it word for word identical, including punctuation which I find remarkable, especially given your normal idiosyncratic use of commas.

I was aware of the ice cream joke as I said above, but for your edification it's in the same article.

Oh dear. Oh dear.

Are you really still saying it's just a coincidence? Oh dear.

No. I wrote that. I just picked it off the ISIHAC site when I was looking for links to Humph. I was wondering about buying a trumpet.

Now, clever-clogs, see if you can pick up my relationship with Chris Barber.

It's not a direct one but it is there nevertheless.

I do get utterly fed up with those on here who just want a pop or so.

Got quite a few more but doubt you'd be interested.

Not really. I sent in a bit of a possibility as I was a huge fan of the show.

It was embellished. Got paid nothing for that attempt but there are quite a few of my warblings on the internet site.

I am quite proud of a few of them!

But, on here, I am a liar apparently, so do not believe anything I say.

But I got 1a in the DT crossword within milliseconds. Read out to me by the Management who was on the lav.

If you can do 11D you get the blue riband.

Because I'm bored with types like you. And I just natter.

What insolence to assume "no one else". You are way off key here. I post whatever I like, as long as it's not offensive.

But you have just become offensive. Do try to curtain the way you think you can post like that.

Don't know anymore. Schindler tend to make hydraulic lifts for use in hospitals etc.

Otis undercut us for lifts in car parks. We had a service contract for them.

You would not seriously believe the pile of tin they put in a certain place in Manchester.

I was up there with clothes pegs to short out the relays. The lift was going mental.

I had no mobile phone in those days, so having thought I'd sorted it out, I headed back to Northampton.

I arrive and get a call to go back. My former wife is heavily pregnant.

Then there was the accident up the road.

I've posted about that, but certain individuals have done a call out.

I rescued two parents of the bride and groom at the Courthouse here.

The ladies' cosmetics were melting. The blast of hot air when I managed to get the doors open was quite something.

We got them there before the wedding. The Management and I zoomed down to Amps and bought a bottle of shampoo to apologise.

But. I am a proven liar, it would appear. That's another in the bag.

The Samantha/Bangor line was very like Terry's Janet and John stories I felt. If you wrote/inspired that I would imagine you would have liked those too. That's all.

Janet and John was the staple diet of me as a child.

I still have the books.

Along with three versions of Noddy, one of which is a bit dodgy. My grand-daughter's parents may not want me to relate "Noddy and His Magic Rubber" to my kiddiwinks.

At the time, it was completely harmless, nowadays it's not possibly all right.

Well I am afraid that is exactly how it sounds. Maybe just in your head it was your joke, did you receive at least a thanks for it?
