Doctor: "I'm sorry, Mr Jones, but the tests show that you have a bladder infection."

Mr Jones: "Oh dear. What does that mean?"

Doctor: "Urine trouble."

I guess that this next video must be a reference to the infamous RYANAIR.

BTW, £0.50p is worth about $0.85; Stansted is a smallish airport just north of London; "the jack" is what you call "the john".

Anyway, here is the VIDEO


Personally, I would prefer to fly AIR NEW ZEALAND

Ryan Air have squeezed the last drop of romance from air travel, and that drop can be found in back of a cattle truck that passes as a Boeing 737.

Not bitter or anything ... just one of their passengers.

Whenever his class asks him to give an example of alliteration, Clemsy says:


"Bring Back British Bawdy"





... naturally, I am happy to oblige.




Whenever I say that I live in Thailand, or at least on Koh Samui, people assume that the following song by the Dutch Indie band, Blaudzun, sums up my life there.

Click HERE to view.




It is true that Thailand does have a certain reputation, and the following extract gives you a fair idea of what we get up to there:



You appeared from nowhere , and shamelessly, without any reservations, you laid on my naked body.

You sensed my indifference, so you applied your hungry mouth to me without any guilt or humiliation, and you drove me near crazy while you drained me.

Finally, I drifted off to sleep.

Today, when I awoke, you were gone. I searched for you, but to no avail. Only the sheets bore witness to last night's events.

My body still bears faint marks of your enthusiastic ravishing, making it all the more difficult to forget you.

Tonight, I will remain awake, waiting for you ...










D*mn mosquito!

I'm sorry Cindy that my stories made you feel sick. Big hug from me to you.

It could have been worse. I could have told you about the night in Thailand, I nearly had a threesome ... I just needed two other people.

Anyway, this poor fellow, in Leer, of all places, has suffered a public embarrassment. Click HERE

I'm not sure if the evidence will "stand up" in court. If it does, he could get a "stiff" sentence!

If I understand the Leer guy's position, the defendant had precious little to be embarrassed about.

No matter the size, the threat to public safety seemed to be rather minimal.

Maybe he just wanted his day in court to prove the full measure of his innocence.

:lol:

Many moons ago, Carmela, when I had the opportunity to live in Italy, I sent my mother a folder of postcards to mail for me to a few friends in the States. One of them was a postcard of this David to a girlfriend and for the obvious girly reasons. My mother was too embarrassed to send it through the US mail, so she stuck it in an envelope before she sent it off. No art lover, my mother. :P


P.S. Having the chance to see this statue was awesome, of course. 8)
