Humorous Dispassionate

Meaning Of Names . . .
An American Indians boy goes to his mother with a puzzled look on
his face. Say Mom, why is my bigger brother named Mighty Storm?

Because he was conceived during a mighty storm, she said.

Then he asked Why is my sister named Cornflower?

Well your father and I were in a cornfield when we made her, she
replied. He then asked And why is my other sister called Moon child?

We were watching the moon-landing when she was conceived,
the mother replies.

The mother paused and said to her son, So tell me:
Why are you asking,Torn Rubber ?

Nadine Dorries v Louise Mensch: it’s a war for the Tory soul

For lovers of democracy in all its narcissistic splendour, what dark and joyless days these are. The Muthah of Parliaments is bereft of its two leading backbench superstars, and while we may follow them elsewhere (in fact, their unceasing tweets and public appearances leave no option about that), Westminster isn’t the same without them.

One consolation for fans of Nadine Dorries or Louise Mensch – and one cannot be a fan of both; a choice, however agonising, must and will be made – is that the absentee twins may soon be reunited. It cannot be long before some Reithian genius flogs a proposal for Celebrity Female Cage Fight Grudge Match to Mr Richard Desmond’s Channel 5, and since these two speak for so many by absolutely loathing one another, they may safely be slated for the trial episode. It has the makings of the most controversial pilot since Pontius.

Plus the airline now charges you a whopping 60 Euros to print a boarding pass.

But their new scheme tops them all. O’Leary wants Ryanair’s passengers to stand on their short-haul European flights. Not ‘stand up for their rights’…he really does mean ‘stand up’.

In an interview with the Telegraph newspaper, O’Leary said, “Seatbelts don’t matter…if there ever was a crash on an aircraft, God forbid, a seatbelt won’t save you.”
