Just Like That Mr Tommy Cooper Junior

" So Mr Tommy Cooper Junior is your new nickname,eh?" said a friend. "It suits you."

He told me of a friend of his who was in an Arab country, looking around the market for a souvenir. He went into one of the shops and asked the proprietor if he had a fez for sale.

'Just like that," said the proprietor.

'Ah, you know Tommy Cooper, then?" said the friend.

'No, I've never heard of him.'

'Well how do you know about the catchphrase "just like that"?

'Because all of the English tourists come into my shop, pick up the fez, put it on and say 'just like that.' I have no idea what it means.

I must find my fez and give it a brush Who knows what will happen when I wear it on the next bus run.
