The Strawberry is a Mammal

Well bythejesus, it's been busy. Having just stumbled upon some ugly revolting developments I've decided to take a break and try to start catching up to blogland. Even when I'm not taking a recess days go by and there's not been time to get back here til now.

I do have some funnies to share. Here is a QI -great entertainment on its own- but a friend put me on to turning the volume off and reading the captions. Gives a whole new perspective...

The title of this is "Things are Tough All Over"

Billy Connolly on Prophets (with the usual Connolly warning)

For all who've worked in retail (the Connolly warning applies here too)

Okay, that's it for break time. I'll get to serious stuff at some point; there's a long list of it.

Oh yes. I worked in retail for a while. Selling bras and knickers (optomistically called lingerie by the store).
'You are my wife's size. You will model this for me, no?' No.
'The woman on the box isn't in the box. This is false advertising.' Why thank you brother, very funny, now naff off.

Have only watched Fry's QI so far. Delightful. Thank you. May all your crows wear sombreros!

Oh, I love Billy Connolly. I have not seen him in awhile and this made me laugh.

Thanks for the Connolly clip, I'd mised this one.

Love the coffee shop. I've seen similar types when I worked retail, but never a Honeyman, thank goodness.
