Aren’t People Funny

I don’t mean funny like a comedian, I mean strange, Like Bob Monkhouse, not funny ๐Ÿ™‚

They agree that in the lottery, any number is is likely to come up as any other, but when you ask them why they don’t choose: 1 2 3 4 5 6, they say:

“Oh, they aren’t like to to come up.”


They throw away cream that has gone off, then go to the supermarket to buy soured cream.

They pour away sour wine then buy it to put on their chips.

They check the use by date on the bottle of spring water, but not when they drink it from the spring.

They boldly split infinitives where no man has split infinitives before.

They spend the first two years teaching their babies to talk and then afterwards telling them to SHUT UP!

The list is endless, any contributions gratefully received, Oh, and a joke what I have wrote (Hinckley Speak):

It is said that there are only two types of joke in the world, and Bob Monkhouse does not know any of them ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
