Now for some fun from Sally….

Food Handling….

When Dave asked for two pies and some doughnuts at his local takeaway he was impressed to see the server using tongs to place the items into a paper bag.

‘Indeed sir,’ said the server in response to Dave’s comments, ‘we are very clean here. Always use tongs, No hands ever touch the food.’

As Dave turned to leave he noticed a piece of string hanging from the server’s fly and asked its purpose.

‘All part of the hygiene programme,’ said the server. ‘When I visit the bathroom I use the string to pull it out so it is not touched by human hand.’ Dave was impressed but still slightly concerned.

‘How do you get it back in?’

‘With the tongs sir.’


An innovative young scientist at the sperm bank has packaged their product in an aerosol can and it is sold as Heir Spray.

And much earlier…..

It is a little known fact that the first timepiece was invented by soldiers fighting for Alexander the Great. He and his army were out colonising the world and at this particular time they were fighting the Persians, day in and day out.

His soldiers were sick and tired and angry. They formed a union and a delegation confronted Alexander with a demand for an eight hour day.

To be fair he saw the point but since the Swiss had not yet invented the clock he had to get creative.. So he suggested that they tied a rag around their wrists and battled the enemy until the rag got damp with sweat when they could knock off.

That first time piece was known as Alexander’s Rag Time Band!

Thank you for joining us today and we hope you are leaving with a smile on your face.. Debby and Sally.
