Cheap Laugh

Who needs sophisticated humour? This would make Homer laugh, and that should be good enough for the rest of us.

  4. The funniest thing - and I've noticed it before - is the way the Daily Mail has to instruct its readership to ''scroll down for more'', like they're going to rush off and miss something utterly profound. Why don't they just put in a hyperlink to a better newspaper?!

  12. We were warned earlier that some of these holiday sex positions were dangerous. I see her rescuers weren't taking any chances with STDs.

  13. Wouldn't the incoming tide have unstuck her? Fat folk float better than anyone!

  14. you mean they're less dense? that's why you never see any fat scuba divers! and I thought it was just a rubber shortage.

  15. wow that's like an Emily Dickinson poem crossed with Benny Hill...

    i started early, took my dog
    and visited the sea
    the mermaids in the basement
    came out to look at me

    And frigates in the upper floor
    Extended hempen hands,
    Presuming me to be a mouse
    Aground, upon the sands.

  16. Elberry, I rather like that. But I believe the reference to mermaids looking at one suggests not E. Dickinson but T.S. Eliot -- "The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock" -- see the final stanzas.

  17. Susan, i think we can safely say this beached whale of a woman would have no Prufrockian qualms about eating a peach.
