Geordie and his marra Charlie had a big win on the lottery. So they decided they would go on a world cruise. After a week at sea, the Captain called the Purser to his cabin and asked what influential people were on board, so he could invite them to his table. "Sir", said the Purser, "We have four film stars, three MP's and two strange gentlemen from the north of England, who seem to be very wealthy". The Captain instructed him to go round with the invitations. Knocking on Geordie's cabin door, he was greeted by, "Howay in bonny lad". When he entered, there was Geordie and Charlie, feet on the table, four bottles of Brown Ale, eating fish and chips. The Purser saluted, "Begging your pardon gentlemen", he said, "The Captains compliments. He requests your company at his table tonight". "Ye must be joking", says Geordie, "Ye divvent think Charlie and me's gan te spend aal this money te eat with the crew!"
