A REPORT of a strange new trend of people putting their names on food in the company fridge.

A drunk man who smelled like beer sat down on a subway next to a priest.
The man’s tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick,
and a half-empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket.
He opened his newspaper and began reading.

After a few minutes, the man  turned to the priest and asked,
‘Say Father, what causes arthritis?’

The priest replies, ‘My Son, it’s caused by loose living,
being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, contempt for your fellow man,
sleeping around with prostitutes and lack of a bath.’

The drunk muttered in response, ‘Well, I’ll be damned, ‘
Then returned to his paper.

The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man
and apologized. ‘I’m very sorry.
I didn’t mean to come on so strong.
How long have you had arthritis?’

The drunk answered, ‘I don’t have it, Father.
I was just reading here that the Pope does.’


Make sure you understand the question before offering the answer.



“I find I’ve been happier since I changed from coffee in the mornings to orange juice.  My doctor explains that it’s the Vitamin C and natural sugars, but I think it’s really the vodka.”

“Doc, I played rugby today. Now every time I touch my leg, my arm, my head, my tummy, anywhere, it hurts like hell!”

“You’ve broken your finger.”

29. It’s simply days and days since I had a holiday, so we just HAD to get away to a luxury villa in Marbella. I know you plebs will understand the pressures on an upper-class twit like me.

  1. Apologies to fellow Minguinites. Have realised that in a previous post which created a stir, I failed to make clear the the phrase “sooner rather than later” referred to an independence referendum.

    Noticed this on rereading at weekend but didn’t want to intrude into the cheerful pleasures of weekend posts.

    1. People are very generous.

      Munguin would pay handsomely for their contributions, but the accounts clerk has been off sick for a while now (8 or 9 years) and payments are so slow.


  2. Me and the other half , the ball and chain etc go into marks and Spencer’s
    Her indoors looking for a expensive bra.

    Look at the size This cup cold fit on my head ….

    1. I can certainly see similarities in what is happening here and what has happened in America.

      For sure, there are similarities between Johnson and Trump.

      I once saw Johnson chair “Have I got News for You”, and he was really very good.

      Trump ran Apprentice, a programme I never watched when Sugar did it here, and obviously never saw Trump either. But I heard that he was quite good at that.

      My impression for what colleagues said about it was, that it was a bit down market from the rather clever HIGNFY… but basically, the two of them are showmen. Performers.

      I was astounded when there was an attempt at a coup d’état in America. Even under Trump that seemed like an impossibility.

      I’m equally appalled that there are still people who think he was good for the country. He made it a laughing stock with serious leaders as has his mate, Johnson with the UK.

      So far nothing has happened here, but then Johnson remains in power. I’m equally appalled that he remains popular. (What must SIR Keir think… I can’t even beat this arse? Unlike President Biden, who did beat that arse.)

      What I see is that Scotland and England drifting farther apart… and Wales too. And Northern Ireland becoming more and more a part of the Republic. (Lucky them.)

      I know a lot of Scottish people are screaming at Nicola to get us out of this… and to be honest, I am too now… but only legally.

      It seems to me, however, that the English seem to love him. He’s still ahead in the polls after all that has happened.

      Were he defeated in an election, I doubt if he’d be stupid enough to try a coup, although some of his Brexity type supporters might.

      Short answer then… I dunno!

      1. Tris you need to stop watching the TV News it is all lies, there was no attempted coup (assuming you’re referring to Jan 6 at the Capitol Building) it was instigated by ANTIFA and other State actors to foment antagonism towards Trump and to distract from the stolen 2020 election.
        Is the TV or other media even telling you that the Arizona forensic audit found hundreds of thousands of fraudulent ballots. Probably they focused on the count giving a few more votes to Biden and a few less to Trump. That only happens if you count the fraudulent ballots as if they are real.

        Remember in September the Press was urgently ushered out of a meeting between Bojo and Biden at the White House. Apparently at one point Biden (played by Arthur Roberts wearing a mask) leaned over to Bojo and asked him if he had seen any of his movies in the 1980s. Bojo muted his mic and said your not Joe Biden who the bloody hell are you? This prompted the clearance of the Press.


        1. Kangaroo, when you come out of this psychosis, if you ever do, you ought to look back on it as a crisis that you had, and you recovered. Strangely, I doubt you have that in yourself.

          It is a sad waste of your intelligence.

          But, there you go.

          Hoppity, hoppity, hoppity, hop.
