Not to mention Ellie Elephant. And everyone would assume Rabbi Rabbit was Jewish. I guess he could wear a dog collar if he wasn't.

Two blondes are walking down the street, the first one sees a ladies makeup compact laying on the ground. She bends over, picks it up and opens the case. She looks in the mirror and says to the other blonde "The woman in this picture looks familar". Her friend grabs the compact from her , looks in the mirror and says............." Of course she does. its a picture of me!!

The reason we have craters on the moon named after us was because of our illustrious ancester, Henry Draper, he was the first man to photograph the moon and take its temperature, he also did pioneer work in the spectral classification of stars and gave us, Oh Be A Fine Girl Kiss Me.
Our sun is a Girl star.

and another thing....................
I shall be playing cricket tomorrow as well as listening to the test on radio 4 long wave. Not a friendly game but a league game with lots of sledging and animosity...................triff eh.

My wife enjoys Big Brother, but I think it is total rubbish.

I have a map of the London Underground that I haven't got around to putting into anything yet.

Why does Marmite taste so awful?

Why are maps of the London underground necessary anyway? not as if the train can go wandering off where it pleases, they must stick to the tunnels and tracks surely.
I mean, I have travelled from Newcastle Central to Kings Cross on numerous occasions,I didn't have a map, and I don't recal anybody on the platform offering to sell me one.

I've heard of beating out a fire, but kicking out a fart is a new one.
Could you describe the technique? Does it hurt the cat?

a couple of cans of chili beans will do... Technically speaking it is not a kick, but it sure feels like one ...

My eldest lad's birthday falls on the same day as Kylie Minogue's but she's a tad older.

Over 1000 posts and I bought this Personal Title to try and tell my mother the embarrassing news that I am a closet Jazz fan.
