Listen in, listen Ian!
Dear Southerners,

Despite what you all seem to think, someone drinking Vimto isn't actually a funny thing. It's just a drink, m'kay?

I got paid £18 recently for a joke on the radio about someone drinking Vimto, so me, my agent and the BBC have to disagree with you.

I can't...I actually hate telling my own jokes.

Plus I would have to charge you a 150% repeat fee.

I discovered Vimto when I was a small child, and loved it. However, I thought it was called "Vitmo", and was some sort of vitamin drink. When I discovered it was called "Vimto", I went off it instantly, and haven't drunk it since.

See also "drinking Irn Bru" and "having a different accent".

Yeah, but to be fair, Scots outside of Scotland drink Irn Bru just to annoy people.

Well, yeah, but so's rosehip syrup, and I haven't drunk that for a while.

Oh yes it is. It's even funnier if you have Vimto with sandwiches and crisps on a plate.

I've never heard of it being funny!
Now I think it's funny that it's considered funny.
