This week’s offerings:


From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:


Claimant………..….an ant who’s had an accident at work.

Cocker spaniel…….at your peril.


The only cow in a small village in Tuscany stops giving milk, so the villagers buy one from Sicily for only 100 euros.

Because the cow is such a wonderful milker, they buy a bull to mate with the cow to produce more cows like her.

However, whenever the bull goes near the cow, the cow moves away. If he approaches from behind, she moves forward. If he approaches from the side she quickly moves away.

The villagers are upset and decide to talk to the village sage.

They tell him what’s happening: “Whenever the bull approaches our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from behind, she moves forward and if he approaches from the side she quickly moves to the side.”

The sage thinks about this for a minute and asks, “You didn’t buy this cow from Sicily by any chance did you?”

The people are dumbfounded. “Yes,” they say. “How on earth did you know that?”

The sage replies, with a heavy heart, “My wife is from Sicily.”


Kind regards
