A Scouser, hit by the recession, is wandering gloomily along the side of the Mersey, when he sees a guy drowning out in deep water. He pulls off his shoes, jacket and trousers and dives in without hesitation. He swims rapidly towards the drowning man with a small crowd urging him on. As he gets near, the guy shouts. "Fuck off! I'm committing suicide." The scouser says. " Keep your voice down mate, I just want to know where you work."
