BEACHCOMBER'S was told that a friend was asked to MC at an event last weekend.

The friend turned up on time, had a drink or two, chatted with almost everyone, took his picture with the attendees before he decided to make his way on stage and call for order.

At that point, he suspected something was amiss because a concerned looking fellow came rushing on stage.

Concerned fellow: "Sorry, who are you? And what are you doing here?"

Beachcomber's friend: (taken aback) "I'm the MC!"

Concerned fellow: "This is a private family function and we did not hire an MC."

Turned out, his event was next door. Cala tale!
