Joke of the day:
Absolutely disgusting behaviour I saw down the front yesterday. I saw a man and a woman having an almighty argument in front of loads of kids, suddenly the woman smacked the guy in the head and it all kicked off. There was a massive brawl and someone called the police. This poor copper turned up on his own and took his truncheon to the man, the guy managed to snatch it off him and began assaulting the copper and his wife.


Then out of nowhere a crocodile crept up and stole all the sausages...

Sunday reflection:
Sound praises to the Lord, all the earth; break into singing and make music. Make music to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and the voice of melody. With trumpets and the sound of the horn
sound praises before the Lord, the King.
Psalm 98.5-7
