Very peculiar e-mail, from a reader in Korea. I have not made this up.
“Dear Mr. Derbyshire; This is an utterly trivial letter, about the setup
for an old joke from England. I’ve asked the English people around me, few
though they are in Korea, and Googled the punchline, but have come up empty.
The punchline is ‘…hand up her dress and she says, “Are you hunting for
rabbits again, Vicar?”.’ … I wondered if you might know about this joke.”
I don’t, but if anyone can reconstruct, or even just construct, the
beginning of this joke, I’d be much obliged. So would the people of
Korea… I guess.
