'Receiver is off the hook' is my favourite next to 'played football without a helmet.' one can be righted whilst the other is all enduring. Now I can be mildly nasty or devastatingly so. Just the ticket! (Esp. for traffic wardens. )

Love it


All foam, no beer! That shook me!

One day, a man came to repair my shower and put a new door. But it leaked from the bottom. He said it didn't matter. I replied, next time you go to the pub and ask for a glass of beer, if there's a hole in the glass, it won't matter either!
