I this thread.
There was a news story today about a rugby player (Danny Cipriano? I don't know much about rugby). He tweeted something like "Ribs a bit sore. Feel like I've been hit by a bus".
This was after he got out of hospital after having been knocked down by a bus.
He made a right mess of the bus, according to yesterday's Evening Standard.
With regards to post 22, I have gone backwards through a hedge - I was moving house, and a friend and I were unloading a large wardrobe from the van. I was edging backwards on the tail-lift, misjudged it, and went backwards through the hedge. Quite lucky really, as it broke my fall.
And as for having cake and eating it - am I the only one who thinks that's a ridiculous saying? If I have my cake, of course I want to eat it! Duh!
It would make more sense to say it the other way around, I guess : that you can't eat your cake and (still) have it.
That was a Two Ronnies 'news item' many years ago.
Scientists have developed a new contraceptive in the form of a bun. So now you can eat your cake and have it.
Just spotted this on twitter. Can't vouch for it's validity, obviously.
My wife's started sewing little denim fringes on all the novels on the shelf. Now there's a turn-up for the books.
