In August I did a course in Sustainable Stand Up with the marvellous Belina Raffy. Here’s the result. Inappropriate thoughts and bad fart jokes. but we all gotta start somewhere… 🙂
A surprise find of blue wine in the washing up opened up a world of chemistry in the kitchen.
Turns out red wine and purple cabbage show amazing colours as you change their acidity. They are acid-base indicators, due to chemicals called anthocyanins.
For Patricia Brennan, duck penis researcher from University of Massachusetts..
Give thanks for the birth of Duck minor
Mother duck has a corkscrew vagina
But daddy’s erection
curls in the other direction
Proof God’s no intelligent designer
Duck love making’s no simple deed
what’s more god has deceed
that the knob of this stud
will drop off in the mud
as soon as he’s planted his seed
If you think this seems a sad song
the drake will regrow his dong
this new percy I’ve heard
measures a third of the bird
a behemoth that’s 8 inches long!
Things then get wronger and wronger
Sir Drake scares his mates with his donger
If he thinks he’s the king
it shows up in his thing
which grows to be 20 % longer
So you think your love life’s out of luck
Be thankful you are not a duck.
your bits stay attached
and your organs are matched
when you’re both in the mood for a ….. cuddle.
With apologies to Labi Siffre, and Madness…
