Patriotic Duty
I don’t normally post this type of thing (forwarded joke email) but I couldn’t resist this one…

“As we all know, the Taliban considers it a sin for a man to see a naked woman who is not his wife. So, this Saturday at 2:00 PM Eastern time all British women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighbourhood terrorists.

Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort. All men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Taliban, demonstrate that they think it’s okay to see nude women other than their wife and to show support for all British women.

And since the Taliban also does not approve of alcohol, a cold six-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-Taliban sentiment.

The British Government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds our participation in this anti-terrorist activity.”

Mr.Men
I think I had all the books, and a couple of audiotapes as well (with Arthur Lowe from Dad’s Army providing the voices). Anyway, the question is, how many can you name? (Mr.Men or Little Miss…)

I think we got most of them, but it was getting late and we couldn’t stay awake long enough – it was one of those last minute conversations before you fall asleep and neither of us can remember how we got onto the topic…

Is this all of the Mr.Men?
Further information on both series.

We didn’t start the fire
A while back I said that I was going to use Billy Joel’s track to give my modern history a bit of an updating.

Seems I now have another little learning aid based on the same song. I wonder if Mr.Joel thought his song would live on in this kind of way…
