Mid-Week Mirth

Two parrots sat on a perch. One says to the other, "Hey, can you smell fish?"

(I'll get me coat).

A basic mistake.

One we have been regretting ever since.

That independence thing. Again.

The happy couple. Coupling.

That's one way to do it.

Token geek joke, or deeper meaning?

You decide.

To Protect and Serve.

Way to go, fella.

Spot the difference.

The Bercow's enjoy a stroll in the recent warm sunshine.

Graffiti dudes. Don't you just love them?

(See what I did there? I changed the fon..ah, forget it).

And lastly

<<<<< Been there.

<<<<< Done that.*

Be excellent to each other, okay?


* Not really. I made it to a bench....

I know you aren't likely to be buying a copy of the Country Life Diamond Jubilee Collectors Issue but maybe you should nip to the library and photocopy the article by Lord Justice Laws in p. 297, who argues:

"The common law of England is The Queen's Law and not the Government's, and that is what gives it its strength"

It doesn't appear to be online. I don't think it is saying anything exceptional but it's a reminder that there is something which stands behind law, beyond mere ability to compel compliance.

Erm, no. I won't be buying any tat.

Thanks for the tip. I will look it up.

If you (or indeed, anyone else) finds this subject as fascinating as I do, you might want to pop along here for a good read:

Look (especially) for comments by Bob Lomas.

Are you trying to get us unblogged for sexism????

If so, keep going!

It may not be PeeCee but it IS funny.

And my own midweek mirth..... I saw an old woman earlier laden with shopping bags outside Anfield.

I said "Can you manage love?"

She said "Fuck off I don't want the job!"

I'll get my coat ...................

Man walks into a pub, buys a pint.

Turns around, see's a donkey sitting in the corner. With a jar full of money on the table in front of it.

Asks the barman "what's the donkey doing sitting in the corner?"

Barman say's "he's been there years, if you can make him laugh you can have all the money in the jar, but, you have to put a tenner in the jar first".

Can I have a go asks the man.

Knock yourself out, reply's the barman.

The man sits down next to the donkey, and wispers in his ear..
The donkey starts howling in laughter...

The man takes the money from the jar and leaves.

A few months later the man returns, orders a pint and see's the donkey still sitting in the corner. With the jar again full of money.

He asks the barman if he can have another go...

Yes. But you only win if you can make the donkey cry.

Ok says the man, but can I just take him into the room at the bottom of the bar for a few seconds?.

I dont know about that, you may beat the donkey to make it cry. Say's the barman.

You will be able to see the donkey at all times through the door windows..

Ok. Go ahead.

The man walks the donkey into the room, in sight of the barman, but disappears himself for a few seconds.

The donkey starts crying like a baby.
The man empty's the jar and leaves.

Months later the man returns, this time the gaffer is there.
When he asks him whether he can have another go to make the donkey laugh,or, cry the gaffer says he will give him all the money in the jar if he tells him how he did it.Because nobody had been able to even make the donkey laugh in 15 years.

Ok says the man.

When I made him laugh, I told him I had a bigger cock than him..

When I made him cry, I took him in the other room and showed him.

Stay safe.
