If I was to have an exhibition of my work, I'd have a confessional box built off to one
side and invite people to tell me their sins. Once they had confessed, I'd tell them
'I've nothing to say'... but to go forth and sin some more' ...................................nab
Once I was in Paris, down in the metro at midnight, at the time there had been a
lot of muggings there. I was stood at the far end of the platform and decided to check
my remaining holiday finances in my wallet. Suddenly I Iooked up from counting my
francs, and there, were two guys giving me the once over. I thought
'oh shit' here we
go. They started pointing at my wallet and ranting aggressively in French. The money
I had was just enough to get me home, and I was not about to give it up easily.
Having boxed in my youth, the training came in handy,and remembering the words of
my coach, ' when you punch for the head, don't punch at the face, but 6" behind the
head.' I floored one of my assailants. The other grabbed me from behind and shouted
in my ear 'POLICE is that your wallet!'.......................................................pedley

I was going out with a boy when I was 17, I really fancied him and wanted him to be
my first, and confronted him with the fact. He said 'I was afraid this might come up'...
'I can't' he told me
'Why?' I asked
'Because I have premature ejaculation.' he said.
I didn't know what it meant, but it seemed like no excuse, so I left him..........emmer

One evening I invited a few friends over for dinner and decided to prepare something
a little exotic. The dish included some hot chillies...As I was chopping them I made
the mistake of scratching myself 'down below'.
A few moments later my groin was burning with pain. I tried pouring water on the
area, but that only made things worse. In a desperate attempt to quell the pain I drank
a large quantity of Scotch. Suddenly the phone rang...It was an international
business caller from South Africa. I did my best to concentrate my mind on foreign
affairs through the alcohol and scorching pain in my pants.
'So in other words, you were pissed, on the phone, with your dick on fire'............nab

When I drink I'm paralysed' said sniff
'Don't you mean paralytic' reg replied
'What's the difference?' said sniff

My nephew Luke had so much fun one Christmas preparing for, and appearing in his
school nativity play, he actually became quite obsessed with the story.
One night my sister was talking to Luke about something that had happened when she was still pregnant with his brother Joe. For a moment he remained deep in thought,then said, 'Was that the time before you went for a ride on the donkey.'

I was at this party last night and this girl was whining on about how much she disliked the smell of alcohol.

Delia, bloody Delia stands there on TV with pan full of dead bodies with a sullen nonsensical look on her face.
'Put a little bit here, chop a little bit there'

'Wakey wakey breakfast in bed!'......................................................................nab

It's rare you find a woman with nice feet, most woman's feet get distorted by high heels or tight shoes. Annie had such nice feet, Annie had wonderful feet. I used to go round to her place when she was still married to Rod. She knew I was crazy about her pedal extremities and used to taunt me with them.'
'You mean she'd let the heel of her shoe fall off and balance it on the tip of her toe...that sort of thing?'
'Yeah not only that she'd sit there painting her nails bright red...I had them in my mouth once...but nail varnish tastes so bloody awful'.........................................nab

When I'm working in the darkroom with all the chemicals out in trays, I can feel this rising heat, then I look in the mirror and my face is blood red and I'm sweating like a pig.' said sniff

'I've got a couple actually.' said sniff
'Why don't you wear them?' asked reg
'Because they give me a hard on'.....................................................................nab

Back in the 80's I was living in a huge house with at least eight students, one of which was my girl friend, Jane. It was summertime and my French friend Pascal had come to visit me. I had not seen him for years so he was curious to know about my latest squeeze.
Soon after I had introduced him to Jane he asked her what she was studying at university.
'I'm studying psychology' she said
'Oh really' he said 'I 'ave studied 'zis as well at school...wat in particular?' asked Pascal
'Freud' said Jane
'Floyd?' Pascal said looking confused.
'No Freud' said Jane
'Floyd?...Pink Floyd?' said an even more confused Pascal
'No FREUD... you know... HYSTERIA !' said Jane getting slightly hysterical herself,
'HIS WHAT?' said Pascal.................................................................................reg
