I was thinking more of the way that beer seems to be a magnet for furiously wagging puppydog tails which inevitably knock over incautiously placed pints of it. :wink:


Ah, it all becomes beer-sloppingly clear! :)
Me, blog? It's true!

Why? Does the bananana only leave stale ones for you?

Don't buy expensive 'ribbed' condoms, just buy an ordinary one and slip a handful of frozen peas inside it before you put it on.

Another top tip -
Don't use the peas afterwards

Just don't use very much - less is best.

Ah but an answerphone makes a great filter for unwanted callers.
You can check out who is calling before you answer.
You don't have to call anyone back if you don't want to.


personally I hate missed calls and prefer to know who rang...my message says "I hate missed calls - please leave a message so I know who you are, then call back later!" :lol:

I always wanted (but never been allowed) to have an answerphone message which says (instead of all the "I'm not here", "Leave a message" instructions) "If you don't know what to do now, I don't want to talk to you. <beep>"

one of my friends has ' You know what to do' as his answerphone message

Never accept "surprisitories" at the hospital. Sure sometimes you might get a nice bouquet or a diamond ring, but most of the time it's just a pile of crap.

Easy to prevent: Make sure the cub is wearing the jumper at the time. When they squeal you'll know the stitching's going wrong...
