And on the catwalk next....Noelle

Noelle is wearing an outfit that she design and made herself, with the aid of sunglasses and a pint of Long Island Iced Tea. The outfit would be ideal for a visit to an abattoir, or initiation into a Nunnery.

Make Room For A Mushroom

Every year, thousands of mushrooms are purchased for Christmas. People buy them "to have in an omelette" or "maybe we'll have a fry-up" or "I fancy a mushroom rissoto on BoxingDay". Laudable aims.

However the reality is that the musrooms are left forgotten at the back of the fridge, alongside the trifle-infused cheese, and are thrown out in  January when mum has a clear out fridge day.

It's a waste.

Remember - A Mushroom Is For Christmas, Not For Life.

Bonus - No CGI, This REALLY Happened.

Bonus 2 - Remember to clear off all snow from your car.

Here's One I Made Earlier

Unusually, I have a fairly good idea of the subject of this slide.

No, not Mrs Ethel Kubrista, nor her gently psychedelic dress.

But a close examination of the mode reveals "Lower cost housing scheme, Daledene, Lewes Road, East Grinstead".  And here's a flat answering that description.

So, something about Scientology. Maybe.

Bonus - 8 .... 9 ... 10 ...

The Wedding Guests

These two, let's call them Mr & Mrs X (even though they're actually Archie and Sandra Higgins), may appear to the very epitome of decency, are in fact swingers.

In fact, I have it on good authority that under that black woolen coat, Mrs X is wearing just a string of pearls.  Mr X, is wearing a device known as The Devil's Saucepan, and is the cause of his grimacing face.

Filthy beggars.

Bonus - What The Heck, Bangkok????

Bonus 2 - Back-Flip like a Champ!
