This week’s offerings:


From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:

Loiter……….device used by smokers in the West Country.

Lovelorn……to be very, very fond of grass


Quotes of the week:   David Letterman America is the only country where a significant proportion of the population believes that professional wresting is real but that the moon landing was faked.                                                                 Old Italian proverb After the game, both the King and the pawn go into the same box.

This week’s offering:

A fleeing Taliban terrorist, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance.
Hoping to find water, he hurried forwards, only to find a very frail little old Jewish man standing at a small makeshift display rack – selling ties
The Taliban asked, “Do you have water?”
The Jewish man replied, “I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5”
The Taliban shouted hysterically, “Idiot! Infidel! I do not need such an over-priced western adornment I spit on your ties. I need water!”
“Sorry, I have none, just ties – pure silk, and only $5”
“Pahh! A curse on your ties! I should wrap one around your scrawny little neck and choke the life out of you, but I must conserve my energy and find water!”
“Okay,” said the little old Jewish man “It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie from me, or that you hate me, threaten my life, and call me ‘infidel.’ I will show you that I am bigger than any of that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a restaurant. It has the finest food and all the ice-cold water you need. Go in Peace”
Cursing him again, the desperate Taliban staggered away, over the hill.
Several hours later, he crawled back again, almost dead, and gasped,
“They won’t let me in without a tie!”

Excruciating one-liner:

Rumour has it that terrorists are increasingly using exploding insects to further their aims. In particular the public should watch out for jihadilonglegs !

Kind regards
