I was walking along the canals yesterday when I heard cries for help.
I looked over and there's Boris, splashing around and shouting "help, I can't swim".
Well I have to admit I'm no fan of Boris but I couldn't just let a man drown.
So I've contacted emergency services but it's been over six hours and there's still no sign.
I think I might have wasted a stamp.

Greggs have closed their shops due to the current circumstances.

They are reported to be looking into plans to start deliveries by drone but experts have said their plans are just pie in the sky.

Under current guidelines nobody should cough within 2 metres of you.

If they do then it is to be recorded as a ‘near cough’ and you should immediately instruct them to 'far cough.’…

This may be a joke but it's based on a serious article:
NASA Data Shows Something Leaking Out of Uranus
I suppose it all depends on how you pronounce* it! So is that why there's been such a run on loo rolls? :lol: :lol: :lol:

*Believe it or not, I remember Patrick Moore, in his early days, used to pronounce the planet's name like - well, you know.... Presumably somebody at the Beeb explained things to him.....

Funniest clean joke I've heard recently

Postby Tinpotflowers » 28 Mar 2020, 11:32am

Not a joke as such but IMHO an amusing thought.


Given the current situation in the central London with high degree of coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission I was wondering about the welfare of the participant both the giver and receiver of the world’s oldest profession.

With that in mind and for the need of social distancing and groups of not more two persons I wonder how these participants could carry out this activity?

I had visions of both parties wearing specially adaptive biohazard suit https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/264620552322?var=0 with double protection in the business regions.

Reports emerging from Russia suggest there have been 2 deaths there so far related to the Corona Virus outbreak:

One was an 80-year-old man with underlying problems and the other was the journalist who reported it.

I read a lovely story about ethically-sourced coffee to my kids last night.

It had a fair retail ending.

I hope Jack kept his social distance from the giant -- Jack can't cut it down this time but at least the giant will have to wait 3 days before climbing down to give chase.
