    I wasn’t hugely impressed when I read the contenders for this year. Although the nutshell one was quite good. But I thought the ones from last year were brilliant. The Tim Vine DVD watching and Stewart Francis badly named children particularly made me chuckle. :-).

    UNfortunately, the one about the TV and the bookcase is too true. My brother was an only child. Good one liners. Dianne
