I blame Dave.
I like the Weight Watchers one best.

Roses said...


I laughed and laughed at the self-esteem one.

Oh...I'm second again...never first...


Liz said...

That's the most I've laughed all day.

Scarlet-Blue said...

I always carry a blanket...

Dave said...

The old ones are the best.

Kaz: Dave wouldn't allow typos in his church magazine. It would all be cricket and gardening.

Roses: Very good self-esteem based humour!

Liz: I don't normally laugh at big forwards. Not at rugby anyway.

Scarlett: A security blanket I hope. Who publishes MP's expenses? David Blank-it

Dave: That's just a story put about by us oldies. Not you of course as you are still a decade younger.
