I recently had a communication from Lake Wobegone, about a guy who went into a pet shop and bought a singing canary. When he got home he discovered that it had a broken leg, so took it back for a refund. The pet shop owner was pretty annoyed. "Look, wise guy," he said, "you asked for a singer, you didn,t say that you wanted it to dance as well"! Which just goes to show that the good people of Wisconsin know a thing or three about twidling their thumbs. Del.

Why would you need a license to watch the tele, are programmes, like The Eastenders and Muffin The Mule, dangerous?

Del said...

Tags, no, only television is dangerous, the opium of the masses, which is why I don't watch it. Not having to write a cheque for the license any more is good because I get very emotional when I'm engaged in that kind of activity. Del

I am worried about Yvonne,not like her to be gone this long,hope Ken is okay and she is just having P.C. problems like she has had in the past.

As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Tommy, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Highway 167. Please be careful!"

"It's not just one car," said Tommy. "It's hundreds of them!"

Hi Sue and Tom
just went into Cuckooites and saw the bit about the Cucks and the Charlie Chaplin. Thought I 'd let you know that a few years ago I went to the Museum of the Moving Image on the South Bank and in the section devoted to Charlie there was a photo of the Cucks in all its glory. It has been seen by many international people so it has a claim to fame!!
I did try to put in on comments but no joy so I am emailing you, sorry about that Tom.
Enjoy your weekend it's been fantastic on the coast here this week
Regards Joyce

Update
UK Advisor Warns of High Population
Thursday, March 26, 2009, 5:56 PM



One of Gordon Brown's leading green advisers issued a warning that Britain risks sustainability issues if their population is not reduced. Jonathon Porritt will show in a report to the Optimum Population Trust that if the nation doesn't cut its population to 30 million then it risks not being able to feed itself.

In a report published on the TimesOnline.com, Porritt said, "Population growth, plus economic growth, is putting the world under terrible pressure ... Each person in Britain has far more impact on the environment than those in developing countries so cutting our population is one way to reduce that impact."

Britain's current population is expected to grow from 61 million to 71 million by 2031. The report has gained some attention from government officials, including the immigration minister who said, "You can’t have sustainability with an increase in population." But most officials have avoided the issue.
