Saturday’s smiles

A chicken walked into the library, went up to the circulation desk and said, “Book, book, book, boook”.

The librarian handed the chicken a book. It tucked it under his wing and ran out. A while later, the chicken ran back in, threw the first book into the return bin, went back to the librarian and said: “book, book, book, book, boook”. Again the librarian gave it a book, and the chicken ran out.

Within a few minutes, the chicken was back, returned the book and started all over again: “Boook, book, book book boook”. The librarian gave her yet a third book, but this time she follows the chicken.

It ran down the street, through the park and down to the riverbank.

There, sitting on a lily pad was a big, green frog.

The chicken held up the book and showed it to the frog, saying: “Book, book, book, boook”.

The frog blinked, and croaked: “reddit, reddit, reddit”.

    America to Russia “Stop being so aggressive – you are putting you country too close to our military bases”

    Oi Andrei, just because Guyton has apparently given up coming around here with a spraycan there is no void, OK.

    ps I am not usurping Ele’s rights or responses but that is offensive to moi

    This is an issue about which Andrei feels very strongly and few if any of the rest of us understand.

    When I first read his comment I thought it was mistakenly put here rather than on the soapbox but on second reading I realised why he’d done it.

    The smiles post is usually politics-free but there is a place for black humour.

    I withdraw and apologise.

    Apology accepted but no need to withdraw, I appreciate your contribution to debates.
