Gag Magag

Fewer and fewer of these:

The riddle is answered! Turns out the guardians are guarded by a geezer called Christopher. Chris Custodiet Custodes.

Sneezing is a kind of unknotting. That's why people often comment approvingly afterwards: 'gets untied'.

Who will defend ironic theological philosophy? Why the Kierke Guard, of course!

I wrote out a '1' followed by 12 zeros in my best calligraphy; but then disaster struck. My posh trillion has been struck by lightning.

I often hear people say 'such-and-such is truly wonderful.' I never hear '... is falsely wonderful.' This fact puzzles me.

This Rush Limbaugh chap sounds unpleasant. I wonder what his brother, Emerson Lake And Palmer Limbaugh makes of it all.

I don't understand why Colin Dexter doesn't write a Scandinavian-style crime thriller. He could call it ‘Inspector Norse’.

Wagner's ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ is stirring music; but I must say I prefer the funkier, guitar-based ‘Valk This Way’.

Watching ‘Night At The Museum 2’ with the kids & ice-cream. Not so disturbing as ‘Night Porter At The Museum 2’.

Barcelona. That's Hebrew for ‘son of Celona’, you know.

So it looks like Hollywood has rejected my pitch for an all-cartoon Conan movie: CONAN THE HANNA-BARBARIAN.

The pirate mantra: live avast-ye, die young.

The best thing about the ‘Shaft’ films was the iconic theme song: ‘Shaft! ah-ah! Saviour of the universe!’

When Adam delved and Eve span/Who was then in a position to outsource delving and spinning to cheaper overseas suppliers?

Look at those headbanging elephants! Is their state tusk-woe?

Poor old Bert and Ernie -- got scalded, both of them! They're hurt. And burn-y.

As a vet I'll treat large African river mammals, ravens and blood-sucking insects -- but nothing else. My Hippo-Crow-Tick oath binds me.

And, in conclusion: my single finest tweet gag:

‘To bring all the boys to the yard, or not/To bring all the boys to the yard. That is the question.’ William Milk-Shakespeare.
