Tommy Cooper Pie Crust Coincidence

Tommy Cooper coincidenceSomething a bit light hearted today. People often seem to see Jesus' picture in bizarre places but how about finding a comedians face in a pie crust!

For non UK readers Tommy Cooper was a cult comedian and magician, who died on stage while performing back in 1984. His catch phrases such as 'just like that' are still heard today as are some of his corny jokes: 'I popped into my local pub the other day and had the shepherd’s pie. He was furious.'

Anyway, chip shop owner Crad Jones was getting stuck into his pie and chips (that's fries in the USA) when he saw an image of Tommy Cooper in his pie. He'd eaten hundreds and hundreds of pies previously but this was a first.

He went on to say how this exciting find came about, "I was about to eat my lunch in the shop, as I normally do. I got my Peter’s pie, which I always have with chips and peas, and noticed the resemblance of Tommy Cooper on the bottom of it."

And we'll finish the pie with a few typical Tommy Cooper jokes:

I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.

A man walked into the doctors, he said 'I've hurt my arm in several places'.
The doctor said 'well don't go there any more'.

Two fish in a tank, one says to the other - you drive I'll man the guns.

I cleaned the attic with the wife the other day. Now I can’t get the cobwebs out of her hair.

A man went into a bar. He went 'Ouch'. It was an iron bar.

    'I popped into my local pub the other day and had the shepherd’s pie. He was furious.'

    I popped into my local pub the other day and they were selling "Cooper's Stout" by the case...which is rare,because it comes from South Australia and I live in it is almost a boutique beer up here.
    Never the less I shelled out the $59 for the case,as it is my favourite stout of all time.
    I used to drink it if I had to take beer to parties in my twenties,because I knew if I saw somebody else at the party drinking Cooper's,it was probably my beer that they were drinking,and I would have a good case against them stealing my beer.-)
    I had just gotten home from a hard days work,pulled a nice cold Cooper's from the fridge and sat down at my computer to catch up,come here and see this post on Tommy Cooper,look at my drink and see a sync
    'just like that'.-)

    And regarding the comment,
    "I got the pictures because I thought no-one would believe me."
    Well I've taken pics of my Cooper's stout and will do a post immediately on my blog,just to prove this is no lie.
    If you bare with me it will be up
    'just like that'.-)
    Tommy Cooper,you are a magic comedian and this sync is magic to me.
    Both great memories.

    1. Magic! Have just read your post. I remember watching the show on television when he died on stage - the audience thought it was part of his act.
