  1. Our lot don’t need any help in producing legislative farce, but I felt this was one for the scrapbook…talking of teargas, did the hypocrisy of the Government minister strike anyone else when he announced yesterday that there was no evidence that it was British teargas which the Bahraini Riot Police had been using on the protestors, and with immediate effect no further exports of crowd control paraphernalia would be permitted. Does British teargas emanate in a red, white, and blue display like the Red Arrows’ smoke trails? If its export is to be revoked now, when there is a danger it might be used, what was the excuse for permitting its export in the first place – did the Government imagine it was simply a collector’s item?

  2. “Any person who vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the public to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way, shall be guilty of a misdemeanour.” – that could be body odour too… not just farting.

    I know a few members of my family that could on occasion be had on this law….

  3. “Nane were keener against it than the Glasgow folk, wi’ their rabblings and their risings, and their mobs, as they ca’ them now-a-days. But it’s an ill wind blaws naebody gude.”

  4. Summer is a-coming in
    Loudly sing cuckoo
    Groweth seed and bloweth mead
    and springs the wood anew
    Sing cuckoo!

    Ewe bleateth aft-er lamb,
    Calf loweth after cow,
    Bullock starteth, buck farteth,
    Merry sing cuckoo!
    Cuckoo, cuckoo!
    Well singest thou cuckoo,
    Nor cease thou never now!
    Sing cuckoo now, Sing cuckoo!

    Or if you want to know how a buck farted in the 13th century

    Svmer is icumen in
    Lhude sing cuccu!
    GroweĆ¾ sed and bloweĆ¾ med
    and springĆ¾ Ć¾e wde nu.
    Sing cuccu!

    Awe bleteĆ¾ after lomb,
    lhouĆ¾ after calue cu,
    Bulluc sterteĆ¾, bucke uerteĆ¾.
    Murie sing cuccu!
    Cuccu, cuccu,
    Wel singes Ć¾u cuccu.
    ne swik Ć¾u nauer nu!
    Sing cuccu nu, Sing cuccu!

  5. Sipu, Amongst what a rich vein of potential press cuttings you live! Sadly our collection from the Kenya Press 1972/73 suffered an attack of fungus which destroyed the entire album, and with it the report of Mr Joseph Kariuki’s remark on hearing the news that his wife had been sexually assaulted by a monkey “which fled into the jungle after satisfying itself”.Asked if he intended to press charges, he responded, “It was only a monkey, after all”.

  6. Artichokes seem to lose their fartiness id made into a soup with carrots too… make a beautiful colour, a very soft orange.
