I had no interweave hence no post last night. I have been Christmas shopping tonight (still no Nintendo ds Lite to be had ... dam I am in so much trouble from the Teen) ..... hey ho, ho ho ho Merry Christmas.

Some daft yet brilliant jokes from my Cuz ~

The other day I saw a man playing Dancing Queen
on the Didgeridoo. I thought, that's Aboriginal.
Ballerinas are always on their toes. Why don't they just get taller ballerinas?
When you've seen one shopping centre, you've seen a mall.

This is my favourite, it really made me laugh

2 tourists were driving through Wales, at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
they stopped for lunch and asked the waitress,
"before we order could you please settle an argument for us and pronounce where we are VERY SLOWLY!!!
The waitress leaned over and said


The game today is a footy one.... don't let that put you off (apart from the fact we ain't in it) .... it is more like shove h'penny. The graphics are clever.

Here is a chance to win a calendar (DP I know you like to win stuff)

Soap was the best! From the alien storyline, the possessed storyline, and Billy Crystal's role being pushed into prime time...ABC was a trendsetter. Good memories, kiddo!

I never win anything!!!! I believe that there is an unwritten law that you need a uterus to succeed - discuss.

70steen said...

b4by..... glad your day ended on a high......I would twirl but it is a bit early :-)

70steen said...

John Hi .... Soap was just so fab. The alien story line has to be one of the classics. Wow a bit late but I should have asked for the box set from Father Christmas

70steen said...

DP .... I am sure there is some rubber gadget I saw the other week on Nursie Gimcrack site, that will allow you to have a uterus albeit you may have to give up your manly image, hey ho sacrifices have to be done when you are in such tough competition

nursemyra said...

yes daddyp, come on down, I've got the apparatus you need in stock right now"

love the didgeridoo joke :-)

70steen said...

hee hee NM I just knew you could come up with the goods ;-)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

It might be worth it ..........

70steen said...

you reckon??

John C said...

You all do realize...the Two Girls and One Cup video was actually made with such 'equipment', and some peanut butter ice cream.

I say we get a fund going and demand DP make a video sequel.

JC please don't encourage him, he is bad enough as it is :-)
