Not Floating – DEAD !!!

by duncanr

You're not fooling me !!!

Two lifeguards at a public swimming pool are on administrative leave, as are everyone else employed at the pool.

Why?

A young woman dived into the deep end of the pool on Sunday but did not return to the surface. A young boy who witnessed what happened reported the incident to the lifeguard – who took no action.

The woman’s body was finally recovered from the pool on Tuesday night when some kids who broke into the pool called the police to tell them of a woman’s body floating in the pool

Also suspended from duty are two Health Inspectors who visited the pool on Monday and Tuesday and reported nothing amiss

Several investigations are now underway to establish how a woman’s body could remain in a public swimming pool for two days without anyone noticing ???

Shakespeare on Drugs ?

by duncanr

Shakespeare is acknowledged by many to be one of finest play-writers in the English language (forced reading of his plays in school forever turned me off Shakespeare)

Some South African blokes have it seems requested permission from the Church of England to exhume his body in order to establish whether or not he was a user of cannabis and cocaine.

The suggestion that he might have been stems from the discovery in 2001 of pipes from his garden that revealed traces of cannabis and cocaine

Hhhmm, if the bard was writing his plays while smoking weed that might explain the unintelligible gibberish he passed off as English when he was writing his plays

Police Vultures a Dead Loss

by duncanr

It seemed like a good idea at the time

They have amazing eyesight, fantastic sense of smell and ability to find dead prey. So on paper, vultures should have been the ideal replacement for sniffer dogs in helping german police find missing bodies.

However, the plan never really got off the ground. The 3 vultures, nicknamed Sherlock, Miss Marple and Columbo proved abject failures during field trials.

Sherlock refuses to fly and . . .

Shampoo Makes You Fat ?

by duncanr

Like many folk, I took it for granted that fat people were fat because they were greedy, lazy buggers. In other words they ate too much and exercised too little.

Seems, though, that is too simplistic a view.

Some researchers apparently believe some chemicals to which we are exposed to act as endocrine disruptors which damage the body’s natural weight-control mechanisms.

The chemicals to watch out for are . . .

Carolyn Bourne : Mother in Law from Hell

by duncanr

Mother in laws rarely get a good press. The reason? They are often in conflict with their offspring’s new partner, disapproving of their choice.

Carolyn Bourne, it appears, falls in to this category.

D.I.Y. Penis Enlargement

by duncanr

Willies come in a range of sizes – from ‘is that it’ (?) to ‘jesus christ will you look at the size of that fucker’ 😯

Understandably, some guys with a small penis are a bit hung up about their dick’s size (or lack off).

Well I’ve got good news for them. No longer need they pay a fortune for penile enlargements. All they need is an empty milk bottle, some silicon, and a sealant gun from any decent hardware store . . .

TSA Scanners Cancer Scare

by duncanr

Hhmm, you know these scanners you have to pass through at US airports ?

The one’s that ‘see’ through your clothing?

The one’s that don’t pose any threat of those passing through them developing cancer?

Well, don’t want to worry you, folks, but seems TSA employees at Logan International Airport aren’t quiet so certain about that anymore !!!
