A bishop in Winchester borrowed a library book, entitled 'Book of Fines' in 1650, from Somerset county records office.  After 200 years, it passed to the Church Commissioners, who retained it for a further 100 years plus.  
The book was returned to Somerset county library in 1985, having earned a fine of about £3,000.

"I don't know - I've never kippled." 

And for those researchers amongst us ...

A shy guy goes into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage, he finally goes over to her and asks tentatively. "Would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?" To which she responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, "No, I won't sleep with you tonight!" Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally, the guy is hopelessly and completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table. After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, "I'm sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I'm a journalist and I've got an assignment to study how people respond to embarrassing situations." To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, "What do you mean £200?"
