Police Warning for men. Police are warning all men who frequent clubs, parties and local pubs to be alert and stay cautious when offered a drink from any woman. Many females use a date rape drug on the market called Beer. The drug is found in liquid form and available anywhere. It comes in bottles, cans, from taps and in large "kegs". More on page 10……………..

Prisoners in £2.5m payout. You could be forgiven for thinking, reading the above headline, that a lottery syndicate (of prisoners) has scooped the midweek jackpot, but nothing could be further from the truth. Prisoners in 94 jails in England and Wales have been handed compensation payouts totalling £2.5m in the last year alone. More on page 18…………….

Cyd the Cynic/Things That Make You Go Hurrah! Whooh, whooh! OK, I give in. Call off the dogs! It seems my article last month, Things That Make You Go Grrr!, where I pointed out what I think are the 10 worst things about living in Spain, ruffled a few feathers. I didn't mean to offend anyone (particularly the man who claims to 'know people') and it was all written in a spirit of fun.

Letters to the Editor Dear Editor, I was made aware of your quality publication several weeks ago. Having spent a vast amount of time and money searching, I have yet to find any outlet that carries your magazine. Your distribution techniques leave a lot to be desired. Joey Demetriou, NEW ZEALAND.

I understand these figures may not be of importance to some of your readers, but being as I am an avidly committed smoker, and also a God fearing Bible basher, I’d like to know exactly how many people I’m partially responsible for killing, before I go to Hell. Carl Boro, LA PINELLA.

Dear Editor, Just to let your readers know, that in order get to Mas y Mas in La Jara, via the zebra crossing, just step into the road and then wait for the screech of tyres. Whilst crossing, explain to the Spanish drivers, in your finest English, exactly why the stripes had been painted on the road in the first place. It works every time. John, LA JARA.

Dear Ed Here's a great idea for a gag your readers can try. It really is funny! Get your hands dripping wet. Then walk up behind one of your friends (or just anyone really!) and pretend to sneeze, while flicking the water on the back of their neck. Then walk off saying something like, "Wow, what an amazing sneeze that was! I can't believe how far that stuff went." Adam Boix, ORBA.

Dear Ed Has anyone else noticed how badly spelt menus are here when written in English? I even had one the other day that was pronounced incorrectly. Edward Spink, ALTEA. Dear Ed I don't normally write letters to magazines, but I overheard a conversation yesterday that was so funny I just have to share it. I was sitting outside a cafe in Oliva enjoying my morning coffee. Two English lads were sitting behind me and as the waitress passed by I heard one of them say to her, "Unah crossant please." The waitress looked confused. The young man repeated his request, again to no avail. Eventually the waitress went back into the restaurant and the young man followed her, saying to his friend, "I'll go and point at what I want." When he returned he looked downhearted and said, "I still couldn't get her to understand." He then continued with his original conversation, which concerned how he was going to sue the Guardia Civil for damaging his car when they towed it away for being illegally parked. After a few seconds of this his companion suddenly chipped in with, "Hang on, you're going to sue the Guardia Civil? You couldn't even order a f*cking croissant!" I tried so hard to stop

Cyd the Cynic/ Things That Make You Go Hurrah! Whooh, whooh! OK, I give in. Call off the dogs! It seems my article last month, Things That Make You Go Grrr!, where I pointed out what I think are the 10 worst things about living in Spain, ruffled a few feathers. I didn't mean to offend anyone (particularly the man who claims to 'know people') and it was all written in a spirit of fun. So, to redress the books, and in the interests of balanced journalism, this month I will look at the top 10 things I like about living in Spain. No 10 - Visitors from Home. Now I'd better clarify this a bit, because anyone who's been out here more than a few months knows precious little is more likely to invoke sympathy in other expats than hearing the words, "We've got visitors from the UK coming over." (The only possible thing worse than that is to hear the words, "We've got the builders in!") You know the score. You take the day off work to pick them up from the airport. You feed them, water them, bed them down and practically wait on them hand and foot. You no longer have any privacy, you never have a moment's rest, and the best you can hope to get out of the deal is to have a beer bought for

Government Rushes In N-word Bill. There was frenzied activity today in the House of Commons today as an emergency Bill was ratified in the wake of the Big Brother n-word fiasco. From midnight on Saturday 16th June 2007, it will be illegal for anyone who is not black, to use the offensive term 'nigger', and those that do will be dealt with severely by the courts. The action comes close on the heels of the expulsion from the Big Brother house of BNP member Emily Parr from Bristol, who called her fellow housemate Charley a "nigger". This, said Channel 4 bosses, was "intolerable" as Emily is white. Black-skinned people, or 'negroes', often refer to each other as 'nigger' or 'nigga' as a term of kinship or familiarity, but this does not extend to non-blacks, for whom the term is strictly taboo. They are expressly forbidden to use the word 'nigger' when referring to black people, and must use the infinitely more polite term 'black'. Under the new law, blacks, either negros or negresses, may, without fear of reproach, spice-up their use of the words 'nigger' and 'nigga' with a selection of colourful expletives, but a whiteassed honky merely hinting at any of the n-words will be seen as outrageously racist. The government has also decreed that, even white niggers - those white people who wish they were black - will be unable to use the term, although black people will be free to call white people just whatever takes their fancy. Labour MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, Diane Abbott, told Andrew Neil on BBC1's This Week programme: "This is what makes Britain great. Total submission in the face of pressure brought to bear against it by forces within�.

HIPS In Doubt Over London Assessments. With just days to go before the start of the Government's phased implementation of Home Information Packs their future has again been thrown into doubt. The crisis has arisen because there is still only one qualified energy assessor to cover the entire Greater London area. Abdul Soddem, a former mini-cab driver from Streatham in south west London, qualified in energy assessment by passing the strict written test of writing out a cheque for ÂŁ500 to an internet-based training firm. Soddem is well know to television audiences for his frequent appearances on the Granada series "House of Horrors" where he fails to notice minor faults in electrical and plumbing appliances and charges the homeowner a bundle for unnecessary repairs. Soddem told TheSpoof.com "That was all when I was doin' refurbishments, but they wouldn't register me for the Corgi so I took up mini-cabbing until the Government come up with this new way for me to fleece the public." Asked how he could possibly cover the whole of Greater London on his own he was equally dismissive, "New homes is gonna get the green light and old one's the red. It's that easy mate, innit? 5 minutes in and out job and name me own price. I really don't even have to go inside, 'cept when there's a cuppa on offer." Asked how HIPs could possibly still go ahead, Local Government Monster, Ruth Kelly, said "Talk to my hand because my face ain't listening." (Yes, it's ugly too Ruth.)

BEEWARE Recent media reports about the dwindling numbers of bees worldwide, and the dire consequences to the human race if it should continue, have sent shockwaves through the world of beekeepers and other people. Vince Beef, a local beekeeper, or ´friend to all bugs´ as he wishes to be known, illegally resident in Els Poblets, told me, “I was tending to my little boys when I felt this shockwave. I turned to my life-long partner and fellow beekeeper, Hans Free, and asked if he had felt it too. He wanted to know what I was accusing him of, and then went into a strop. When I repeated the question a few minutes later, he went ballistic. “What are you accusing me of?” he asked. I know I’m fond of veggie and bean tortilla, but I never break wind when handling my babies. He then preceded to twat me with a honey tray.” Recent reports about the dramatic decline in the planet’s bee population are causing great concern amongst environmentalists and people with nothing better to do. Former genius, lothario and right-back for Sturm Graz, Albert Einstein, once stated something like, “If all the bees were to disappear from the face of the earth, mankind can only expect to survive for a further 4 years.” When I put this claim to retired Professor of ´Bees and Stingology¨, H.R.

Liverpool Woman Chokes On Man's Left Testicle A Liverpudlian woman, rejected by a former boyfriend, grabbed him by the testicles at a house party, pulled the left one off, then tried to swallow it. She choked on it however, and had to spit it out. It was handed back to the victim who was told 'That's yours." Doctors tried, but were unable to reattach the testicle to the victim's body. Judge Charles James, who sentenced the woman to jail for two and a half years said he'd often heard of someone 'giving their left nut' for something, but this was the first time he'd ever seen an actual case of it. "I was in the most excruciating pain." complained the victim in a high-pitched voice at the trial. "It was the first time in my life anyone ever pulled one of my balls off. She just grabbed me by the jewels and pulled so hard! That caused my underpants to come off and my left ball came with them." Left unexplained were why the victim's testicles were exposed and vulnerable in the first place. The 24-year-old woman said, "It was never my intention to cause harm to (the victim), and the fact that I have caused him injury will live with me forever. I am in no way a violent person. I have challenged myself to explain what happened but still just cannot remember. This has caused much anguish to me and will do for the rest of my life.

"While I'm not violent, I'm still not going to let some dude dump on me, and If the guy needs his nuts pulled off, why I'm just the girl to do it!" The 37-year-old victim said, "That damned woman's anguish is nothing compared to my own. I just didn't realise she was cannibalistic when I dated her. If I had known, then maybe I would have brought her a chicken leg or something to the party." The victim says this has been a life-changing experience for him, and has caused him to now decide to enter the priesthood.

Blind Man Two nuns are ordered to paint a room in the convent, and the last instruction of the Mother Superior is that they must not get even a drop of paint on their new habits. After conferring about this for a while, the two nuns decide to lock the door of the room, strip off their habits, and paint in the nude. In the middle of the project, there comes a knock at the door. "Who is it?" calls one of the nuns. "Blind man," replies a voice from the other side of the door. The two nuns look at each other and shrug, and, deciding that no harm can come from letting a blind man into the room, they open the door. "Nice tits," says the man, "where do you want these blinds?"

Seamus and Sean (also Irishmen), were sent for. Seamus went in and the mortician pulled back the sheet. Seamus said "Yup, he's burnt pretty bad. Roll him over". So the mortician rolled him over. Seamus looked and said "Nope, it ain't Paddy". The mortician thought that was rather strange and then he brought Sean in to identify the body. Sean took a look at him and said, "Yup, he's burnt real bad, roll him over". The mortician rolled him over and Sean looked down and said, "No, it ain’t Paddy". The mortician asked, "How can you tell?" Sean said, "Well, Paddy had two arseholes." "What, he had two arseholes???" said the mortician. "Yup, everyone knew he had two arseholes. Every time we went into town, folks would say, "Here’s that Paddy with them two arseholes...."

One for the road. A man walks into a bar and asks for a beer. After drinking it, he looks in his shirt pocket and asks for another beer. After drinking that one, he looks in his shirt pocket again and asks for another beer. This happens about another seven times before the bartender asks him, "Why do you keep looking in your pocket?" The man replies, "I have a picture of my wife in there. When she looks good enough, I'll go home."

Agony Uncle Gerrard Dear Gerrard I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice on what could be a crucial decision. I've suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs ... Phone rings, but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with the girls a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them". I always stay awake to look out for her taxi coming home, but she always walks down the drive. Although I can hear a car driving off, as if she has got out of the car round the corner. Why! maybe she wasn't in a taxi? I once picked her mobile phone up just to see what time it was. She went berserk and screamed that I should never touch her phone again and why was I checking up on her. Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. I decided I was going to park my 2006 Yamaha R1 motorcycle next to the garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the whole street when she came home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my Yamaha R1, that I noticed that the valve covers on my engine seemed to be leaking a little oil. Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the dealer?

So a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs. The woman reads the sign and says to herself, "Well, that's better than my last boyfriend, but I wonder what's further up?" So up she goes. The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids. The woman remarks to herself, "That's great, but I wonder what's further up?" And up she goes again. The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking. "Hmmm, better" she says. "But I wonder what's upstairs?" The fourth floor sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking and help with the housework. "Wow!" exclaims the woman, "very tempting. BUT, there must be more further up!" And again she heads up another flight.

Prisoners in £2.5m payout. You could be forgiven for thinking, reading the above headline, that a lottery syndicate (of prisoners) has scooped the midweek jackpot, but nothing could be further from the truth. Prisoners in 94 jails in England and Wales have been handed compensation payouts totaling £2.5m in the last year alone. Alfie Shiphouse, a prisoner in Wormwood Scrubs since 1968 is now sitting on a personal fortune of £823,001, all amassed in compensation payouts (and the interest thereon) received every year without fail. "I did a couple of murders a few years back but in those days you didn't know about the dangers of prisons like you do now," said the criminal, now 57 years old. "But back then, in the sixties, the majority of the people didn't know if you murdered someone - or a few people like - you'd end up being locked up for like 14 hours a day, lights out at 10pm, TV til 9pm, you know, that kind of stuff. "We'd heard the word prison, but we didn't know it totally violated your human rights!" Shiphouse was convicted of the murder of 7 men, all of whom had been stabbed over 150 times (by Shiphouse). "If I'd known prison was like this, there's no way I'd have admitted to it, and I don't think there was enough evidence to put me away without my guilty plea." Police stormed a warehouse owned by Shiphouse as he was in the process of killing the seventh man, and the other six were all found in a pond on Shiphouse's property. "But saying that, when I finally get out of here I'll have near enough a, million quid, so I should have a fairly decent retirement!" When asked why he'd made (and subsequently won) a claim for over £85,000 - the highest single amount received by any prisoner in the previous 12 months Dave "Seven Bells" O’schitt told us "Oh, s**tloads of s**t. They put me on a top bunk, and I'm scared of heights. I once had a s**t down a toilet that hadn't been flushed. I, what else was it... oh yeah, I broke my hand when I put a guy who tried goin' up me s**tter into a coma, and got £42,000 for that." Home Secretary Joan Reed was unavailable for comment, but a spokesman said "Obviously we don't like to spend taxpayers' money in this way, but just because these people have committed, in the main, heinous crimes, it doesn't mean they should be locked up like caged hens."

Alistair Schaft from KPMG told us, off the record "many of these people will have larger retirement funds than the ordinary guy who works 40 hours a week for 45 years - they get their own cell, plenty of free time, and can pretty much get a hand job whenever they want one, so who are the fools?"

Satanic Visit. One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in tiny Smithville wakes up early and goes to their local church. Before the service starts, the townspeople sit in their pews and talk about their lives, their families, etc. Suddenly, at the altar, Satan appears!! Everyone starts screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in their determined efforts to get away from Devil Incarnate. Soon, everyone is evacuated from the church except for one man, who sit calmly in his pew, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy is in his presence. This confuses Satan a bit. Satan walks up to the man and says, "Hey, don't you know who I am?" The man says, "Yep, sure do." Satan says, "Well, aren't you afraid of me?" The man says, "Nope, sure ain't." Satan, perturbed, says, "And why aren't you afraid of me?" "Well, I've been married to your sister for 25 years."

Vodoo Dick There was a businessman who was getting ready to go on a long business trip. He knew his wife was a flirtatious sort, so he thought he'd try to get her something to keep her occupied while he was gone, because he didn't much like the idea of her screwing someone else. So he went to a store that sold sex toys and started looking around. He thought about a life-sized sex doll, but that was too close to another man for him. He was browsing through the dildos, looking for something special to please his wife, and started talking to the old man behind the counter. He explained his situation, to the old man. "Well, I don't really know of anything that will do the trick. We have vibrating dildos, special attachments, and so on, but I don't know of anything that will keep her occupied for weeks, except …" said the old man, and then he stopped. "Except what?" asked the businessman. "Nothing, nothing," said the old man. "C'mon, tell me! I need something!" protested the businessman. "Well, sir, I don't usually mention this, but there is the 'voodoo dick,'" the old man said. "So what's up with this voodoo dick?" the businessman asked. The old man reached under the counter, and pulled out an old wooden box carved with strange symbols. He opened it, and there lay a very ordinary-looking dildo. The businessman laughed, and said, "Big fucking deal. It looks like every other dildo in this shop!" The old man said, "But you haven't seen what it'll do yet." He pointed to a door and said "Voodoo dick, the door." The voodoo dick rose out of its box, darted over to the door, and started screwing the keyhole. The whole door shook with the vibrations, and a crack developed down the middle. Before the door could split, the old man said, "Voodoo dick, get back in your box!" The voodoo dick stopped, floated back to the box and lay there, quiescent once more. The businessman said, "I'll take it!" The old man resisted and said it wasn't for sale, but he finally surrendered to £700 in cash. The guy took it home to his wife, told her it was a special dildo and that to use it, all she had to do was say, "Voodoo dick, my pussy." He left for his trip satisfied things would be fine while he was gone. After he'd been gone a few days, the wife was unbearably horny. She thought of several people who would willingly satisfy her, but then she remembered the voodoo dick. She got it out, and said "Voodoo dick, my pussy!" The voodoo dick shot to her crotch and started pumping. It was great, like nothing she'd ever experienced before. After three orgasms, she decided she'd had enough, and tried to pull it out, but it was stuck in her, still thrusting. She tried and tried to get it out, but nothing worked. Her husband had forgoten to tell her how to shut it off. So she decided to go to the hospital to see if they could help. She put her clothes on, got in the car and started to drive to the hospital, quivering with every thrust of the dildo. On the way, another orgasm nearly made her swerve off the road, and she was pulled over by a policeman. He asked for her licence, and then asked how much she'd had to drink. Gasping and twitching, she explained that she hadn't been drinking, but that a voodoo dick was stuck in her pussy, and wouldn't stop screwing. The officer looked at her for a second, and then said, "Yea, right. Voodoo dick, my arse!" “One day a redhead, a brunette, and a blonde were on their way to heaven. God told them the stairs to heaven were 1,000 steps and on every step he was going to tell them a joke. If they laughed they would not be able to get to heaven. So the redhead made it to the 45th step and laughed. The brunette made it to the 200th step and laughed. But the blonde made it to the 999th step and laughed even before God told his joke. God asked "Why did you laugh I haven't even told the joke yet" The blonde said "I know I just now got the first one!!!"“

KILLER BISCUITS WANTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER (the actual AP headline) Lisa Burneti, 23, a resident of San Diego, was visiting her in-laws, and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Lisa's eyes were now open, and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay; and Lisa replied that she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains in forever an hour. The man called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Lisa refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Lisa had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head... A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head.

Julie Andrews turns 69. To commemorate her 69th birthday on October 1, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was "My Favourite Things" from the legendary movie "Sound Of Music". Here are the lyrics she used: Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting, Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings, Bundles of magazines tied up in string, These are a few of my favourite things. Cadillac's and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses, Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings, These are a few of my favourite things.

When the knees go bad, I simply remember my favourite things, And then I don't feel so bad. Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions, No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions, Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring, These are a few of my favourite things. Back pains, confused brains, and no need for sinning', Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinning', And we won't mention our short shrunken frames, When we remember our favourite things. When the joints ache, When the hips break, When the eyes grow dim,

I´M A DUKE; GET ME OUTTA HERE…

nose out of shape with these rumours, and I like my nose the way it is. I’m the main man here when it comes to musical activities. They don’t call me Higham Mighty for nothing.”

The music world has been shocked by the news that the once thought dead musician, Duke Ellington, is not a happy chappy. The West Brom striker has made it abundantly clear of his wish to leave the depressing Black Country area and return back to the bright lights of Wigan. The Duke, nicknamed so because of his uncanny unresemblence to John Wayne, who was also nicknamed The Duke because of his remarkable inability to play a musical instrument, was once a firm favourite at the JJB Stadium. Dickie Dumdum, President of the British Duke Ellington Appreciation Society, based in a village somewhere, couldn’t hide his shock when I informed by phone. “I and the members of our seven strong group, weren’t aware that the once dead musician had turned to football in order to see out his last days. However, if you’re going to do it anywhere, why not in deepest darkest West Bromwich. If he’s as good at footie as he was with the piano, he’ll be a success. He must be getting on a bit though. He’s gotta be at least 108 by now.”

When I reminded him that many Wigan fans would like to see the return of The Duke, he was adamant.

I was unable to arrange an interview with owner of Wigan F.C. and JJB Sports, Dave Whelan, but a spokesman for him stated; “I’m sure Mr Whelan would be keen in having top a bandleader in the Wigan line-up. He feels there aren’t enough talented musicians in professional football these days. Not since the heady days of Hoddle and Waddle, two players that could sparkle on the field during the day, then give it their all on stage of an evening. Two truly gifted individuals. Duke Ellington would be a welcomed addition to our squad. If he had a stinker of a game, he could always lift the spirits of the fans with an impromptu rendition of ´It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got the swing´. By the way, do you like my trainers? I get them cost price.”

“If your car could travel at the speed of light would your headlights work?”

“It’s not going to happen, and anyway, I’m not Adam Ant. Firstly, The Duke we want to return here is Nathan Ellington, not the jazz composer from the early 1900´s, you pillock. Secondly, Duke Ellington has been dead since 1974. Why don’t you look it up on tinternet first you plonker? Now stop wasting my time. Can’t you see I’m trying to rehearse with my keyboard player for the coming season? I know, what about a bit of Humperdink.

spected, widely distributed and well known titles in southern Spain." The Euro Week/y News, Page 8, 21st - 27th June 2007.

The Ragged Clown The Name That Dare Not Say The Word Channel 4 executives must have been gurgling with pleasure after one of the contestants on Big Brother, Emily Parr (a woman of such weapon grade stupidity that one imagines the onset of senile dementia would increase her mental faculties) gave them the headlines they desired when she said to a fellow (black) contestant, "Are you pushing it out, you nigger?"

Do you think someone ought to tell them that selfpraise is no praise?

Don't normally tell jokes in this column, but what the hell? Rules are made to be broken. This was told to me by an acquaintance, who claims it's a true story. I doubt that but it made me laugh anyway: A long distance lorry driver from England parks up one night in Pedreguer. He stops off for a meal and a drink in a What with this incident and the recently published well-known English bar/restaurant there. After his Jabari Asim book, The N Word, Who Can Say It, Who Shouldn't And Why (and no, I haven't read it) the usage meal he sits there with his pint, looking very glum. Another customer approaches him and they start of the word has become a hot topic. It's even been chatting. After a while the customer says, "Look, you the subject of a 'symbolic' banning in New York. So seem a bit down. Why don't you go to the brothel hot has the topic become that the Costa's own Boadicea (who writes a column in The Euro Weekly News) has waded into the debate. In the 21st June edition she states, after what must have been much graven deliberation, "...only a black person can use the n-word without causing offence." A friend of mine, who describes himself as 'non-white' (he is mixed race, his mother being white and his father black) brought the Boadicea comment to my attention. "What about me?" he asked. "I'm half black. Am I allowed to say it without causing offence? Perhaps she only wants me to say half the word? But which half? Nig? Ger? And what about my children? Their mother is white, so where do they stand? Perhaps they have to ring Boadicea up and ask her permission? Allow her to do some background checks." Hmmm, he's got a point. You might need to rethink this one, dear. While flicking through the rest of the newspaper in which the above comment appeared I spotted this interesting quote in a story about a business networking group, which I would like to share with you; "Among the titles of the EWN media group is The Euro Weekly News, one of the most re-

down the road? Cheer yourself up!" "Oh," says the lorry driver, momentarily brightening up. "Do they have any women there with faces that look like a bulldog licking piss off a nettle? With arses as fat as a hippos? And with all the warmth and charm of an unflushed toilet?" "Er... no." says the other chap. "They're all very nice actually. And if you have the money they let you have sex with them all night long!" "It's not sex I want, dammit! I'm homesick!"

A note from Royturds! Royturds News Agency, through its legal advisors, would hereby like to distance itself from an unfortunately named Roy Turd. The Gentleman in question reported from Whitehall last month on the ´Whistleblowers Clampdown´, reported in the June edition of the reputable Smuggler (The). We would like to make it clear that Roy Turd is in no way connected to the Royturds News Agency. We would also like to emphasise that the Royturds News Agency is a reputable organisation, occasionally dedicated to finding the latest breaking international news stories from around the world. To this end, we have endeavoured in sending our most highly trained journalists to the four corners of the globe. It has to be said though, that few, if any of said reporters, have succeeded in finding any of the said corners as of yet, but we are confident that they will in time, and will no doubt have lots of things to report about. It is, admittedly, a tad worrying. Well, it has been nearly two years now, Despite this setback, Royturds News Agency is committed to the quality of the news that we relay to any media outlet that may be interested. Hours are spent surfing the internet, and scouring the papers, to find slightly interesting newsworthy material. At this point, we separate the wheat from the chaff, allowing the broadsheets (whatever they are) and all other news agencies to deal with the wheat while we try and concoct something from the leftover chaff. It is clear to us that the aforementioned ´Whistleblower´ article was produced from the finest wheat, quite often using long words that we can’t even find in our pocket-size thesaurus. To this end, we shall continue to manufacture material to the best of our limited ability, and stay as loyal as is possible to our sort of mission statement; “It may be naff, but it’s 100% chaff.”

Sports Page. A TV reporter goes up North and interviews Sam Allardyce and Roy Keane. First of all he speaks to Sam Allardyce, "So Sam, what are your hopes for Newcastle this season?" Sam replies, "Well, if we can pick up a few points here and there, hopefully we can stay in this division." Then the reporter turns to Roy, "So Roy what are your hopes for Sunderland this season and in the future?" Roy replies, "Well, we'll walk the Premiership, win the championship and FA Cup along the way, then we'll win the Champions League..." At this point the TV reporter interrupts, "Err‌ Roy, don't you think you're being a bit over ambitious there?" "Well, Sam started it!" replied Roy.

Wenger Tries To Prove Players Aren’t Stupid Arsene Wenger walks into the Arsenal changing room for their next game, looks at his players and says, "I'm not supposed to play some of you since our chairman said you were stupid against Man U. "So what I have to do is ask you a question, and if you get it right, you can play." They all agree and ask Wenger to start with their star players first. First up: Henry. Wenger looks into his eyes intently and asks, "Okay, now concentrate... what is two plus two?" Henry thinks for a moment and then he answers, "Four?" "Four!" Wenger shouts loudly, excited that his top player got it right. In response the other Arsenal players plead, "Come on boss, give him another chance!"

“England Expects... everyone to pay their taxes in whatever form they take�.

Patent Patience I went to the Patent Office trying to register some of my inventions. I went to the main desk to sign in and the lady at the desk had a form that had to be filled out. She wrote down my personal info and then asked me what I had invented. I said, "A folding bottle." She said, "Okay. What do you call it?" "A Fottle." "What else do you have?" "A folding carton." "What do you call it?" "A Farton." She sniggered and said, "Those are silly names for products and one of them sounds kind of crude." I was so upset by her comment that I grabbed the form and left the office without even telling her about my folding bucket.
