The Treasury will be running at a surplus in the next Patilament - George Osborne

that should be on the joke thread.

By the way, what's a patilament?

Barry Cryer was on a talk show a couple of weeks ago.  He tells the story of going to Egypt for his hols and as they walked off the ship they had to pass a line of market stalls.  The end stall was a man selling Fez(s).  As he passed him, the Egyptian held his arms out and said 'Just like that'.  Cryer stopped and asked the market trader why he did that.  The Egyptian replied he didn't really know, but he said that every British holidaymaker that stopped at his stall put on a Fez, turned to their wife, held his arms up and said 'Just like that'. 

 Now that takes some beating.

www.geofflee.net for news of my novels, One Winter, One Spring, One Summer, One Autumn and Two Seasons. All are written against a strong Rugby League background, set in South Lancashire and inspired by the old saying about work: "They could write a book about this place. It would be a best seller".

Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Not exactly a catchphrase but this is a gem from Mark Ring, when he was a welsh RU international.
