    I've just been given 15 gladioli "Plum Tart" bulbs.

    Now, if you'd been given 15 actual plum tarts I could see your point...

    Cheers, Jeff

    I think the plums lurking in the kitchen are actually cricket balls.

    Ah, Steve - they will be pretty!

    Great fun, Andrew - that's a favourite!

    It just occurred to me that David Davis must have been whistling this, during his time as Brexit Secretary... :)

    Actually, this always cheers me up, but is highly NSFW. Turn it up and have a giggle.

    (and I'm currently listening to BBC Radio Cymru for no good reason other than later they are running an interview with Nigel Blackwell, who has learnt Welsh for the occasion. Wish now I'd had a go when I was in Bangor - not much call for it in Oxford, well, maybe except in Jesus?)

    I always liked "Let it happen, bass player..." at the start of 'Time Flies By'. It makes me laugh every time I hear it.

    Surely I am not the only one when reading this thread that always thinks of this?

    Oxford joke - Jesus College was founded with a lot of input from one Hugh Ap Rhys, and traditionally had a high intake of Welsh students. It was said that if you wanted to get away with something you left your name as "Jones of Jesus" because you'd never be tracked down amongst the other Joneses. Having tried to research a WW1 Jones in the South Wales Borderers and failing miserably, despite having both of his initials, they had a point.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    RTBC I just did a 45 min lecture to a university in San Diego over Skype and the technology didn't go down once.

    My RTBC regarding the rescued rabbit didn't last long. I have just cleared away a headless corpse, hoovered up fluff, collected body parts and removed blood from the carpet. My coffee has now gone cold. Bloody cat.

    I shall spare you a photo this time.

    Oh dear. Not fitted to be part of the gene pool obviously.

    We had a cat that not only used to follow me to school, so I was summoned to take him home, but could open the cupboard, pull out a tin of moggimeat and roll it to us.

    Ours don't open the cupboards, but they know where we keep the bag of Dreamies. They'll find that bag and push it to us. I seriously think Dreamies is cat crack.

    You'll be glad when your veggies and plants start growing again!

    Unless the rabbits go to my local supermarket, my veggies are safe, lol.

    The adverts certainly seem to suggest that...

    All that garden and you don't grow anything to eat? Grow some fruit trees at least. ;)

    I planted 2 apple trees , 1 pear and a plum tree last year.

    We had strawberries too last year. I forgot about those.
