I was outside the local Asda today and noticed this funky looking ambulance service vehicle.

I heard a voice behind me exclaim to his partner with no apparent sense of irony,
'' look at that ambulance, tha's sick tha' '' (Skem/Scouse accent ). It made me laugh anyway.
It could be called a case of unconscious humour I suppose (just to over egg things).
Any more contributions..?
Edited, for spelling and punctuation, just like school, must try harder.

Seeing the chaos in the local Tesco car park and the amount of people returning to their cars with one or two bags of shopping. Lots of people looking stressed and angry where peace and courtesy and a healthy walk would be a viable option. "It's the same every year" I thought as I walked away into relative tranquility and, for the first time in ages, the sun on my face, a great view over the hills of distant Penwith and dreams of riding out there in the new year.

Boris's latest act. Well, if you don't laugh, you'll cry.

On a similar note all the "I stand with Boris" idiots on Facebook who only voted Tory to "get Brexit done" complaining that "I didn't vote for this" now Boris has started :roll:

All these has beens coming out from the woodwork. We have already heard from Blair who birthed UKIP that lead finally to Brexit, with his allowing thousands on thousands of eastern europeans to come into the country un checked when the rest of europe imposed limits. That these people think they have any right to pontificate amazes me

Ordered a personal number plate for an Xmas present -- the woman on the phone said would you like a border around the edge. I said I don't think we're allowed borders in northern Ireland. Which is probably true in both senses -- our mot is very strict -- you don't go to your local garage to get it done -- there's no such thing as an advisory -- if you get one you've failed.

R4 Today programme this morning. Maybe around 7am.
I was only half attending the radio and they were discussing with some American sounding lady about something to do with aircraft and an accident (perhaps?).

She was asked about pilot training, and she replied, "Pilot training is very much up in the air at the moment."

I laughed my socks off! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I noticed this charming article about two long term friends exchanging the same Christmas Card over five decades - men too, which (as men typically don’t do friendship well) I think particularly good. Green, or just jovially tight, and what a wonderful thing longterm friendship is. I laughed and I smiled. Seasons greetings to all.

I had a chuckle at a Guardian article today which suggests that the Tory proposal to end criminal prosecution of people who don't pay for the BBC is a sign of the new government's authoritarianism.

A different article? The BBC is only mentioned in passing.
