Time for a silly joke

Today’s Newsnight email has one of its regular Jokes Fit for an Eleven-Year-Old:

A man and a woman go camping. They put up their tent and go to sleep. A few hours later the man wakes the woman and says: Look up at the sky, what do you see?

She says: I see a million stars.

He: And what does that tell you?

She: Well, astronomically it tells me that there are millions of undiscovered worlds and planets out there! Astrologically it tells me that Saturn is in the sign of the lion! Meteorologically it tells me that we will have a very nice day tomorrow! Timewise it tells me that it’s about 3.15 am! Theologically it tells me that that God is almighty and we are unworthy! And what does it tell you?

He is quiet for a moment and then says: Well, practically it tells me that someone has nicked our tent…
