  • June 10-16: Open Bowels Tournament Teignmouth. (Events Leaflet for South Devon)
  • If Tesco, BHS, ASDA and others can supervise toilets effectively, it’s time our council got to the bottom of the matter. (Wrexham Leader)

This next one isn’t toilet related but it did prompt me to suggest to the Hub that, if he still wanted a daughter, we could always buy one, if he didn’t mind secondhand children:

And finally…

A priest ran out of petrol on his way home.   Fortunately, the village garage was only about half a mile away.  Amazingly, the garage did not have any petrol containers.  The priest pleaded that the garage owner must have a container that would hold half a gallon of petrol.  After much searching the proprietor came up with a chamber pot.  Although it was not strictly legal, they filled the chamber pot with petrol and the priest set off happily back to his car.

Just as the priest was decanting the petrol from the chamber pot into his tank a lorry driver stopped, wound down his window and said, ‘Father, I have heard of the miracle of changing water into wine, but I think you’re pushing your luck this time.’

      Which one?

      The Book of Pooetry had been forgotten over two nasty bugs, visitors and Christmas. The SA collection is complete and being submitted.

      Thanks for the reminder about the first one!

    Loved these! Especially the one to men “it’s shorter than you think.” Men are so deluded sometimes, by the way they aim.

    “It’s shorter than you think” 😀

    Men in Germany are taught to pee sitting down!! Some people even have signs in their bathrooms with a crossed out picture of a man peeing standing up…. and they don’t mean it as a joke!! One more aspect of German behaviour that I will NEVER understand. It may make less mess, but I just can’t get my head around it. Men are supposed to pee standing up!

      But I bet you never accidentally sit on a cold toilet bowl because the seat’s been left up…

    I love the way lorry drivers often find something witty to say

    Although I found this collection of jokes very satisfying, I’m afraid that I have to feign dissatisfaction. Please don’t take that personally. I simply want my monkey back.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
