Thursday’s Piece

“A young bride walked into a chemist and timidly asked if the baby tonic they advertised really made babies bigger and stronger. Assured that it did and that they had never had a complaint she bought a bottle. Minutes later she returned, took the chemist into a corner and whispered into his ear, ‘I forgot to ask – who takes it, me or my husband?’.”

“….in A.D. 2061 people will find it….difficult to understand how the ghastly mumbo-jumbo of hanging a man could still have survived in a civilised society a hundred years ago.”

(‘On Moral Courage‘ by Compton Mackenzie, 1883 – 1972)

Sunday’s Piece

“My Analyze over the ocean

My Analyze over the sea

Oh, who will go over the ocean

And bring back my Anatomy.”

(Written by a student when asked to compose something to incude the words “analyze” and “anatomy”!)
