December is
Quince and Watermelon Month
http://www.fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov/month/watermelon.html






I know what you're all thinking, "Demo, water you ranting about NOW???"

But it's really just a quinceidence that this is a sweet month.

Maybe Don will re-do the definition ?

Ah! The quinceessntial month of December approaches. (Excuse me London accent).

Yes, here I cydonia my chair getting the pip over a large fruit. I can get very pithy about this sort of thing. Such a fruitless excersize. And does anyone invite me arind their gaff to partake of these natural delights? Its no coquinceidence that they don't.

"How much is that melon mate?"
"To you guv, it'll be two quince."
"Shouldn't that be 'two quid'?"
"You read your script, I'll read mine."

Now that's what you call a contrived pun!

With all this eloping in mind, I have decided to get religion.

I shall become a spiritualist. Apparently, after drinking a bottle of Scotch or some other strong spirit you list to one side or the other and then start singing 'Aisle be seeing you in all the old familiar places'. But after so much drink, you must not go anywhere via car or the police will priest you to alter your ways.

When the effect of the drink has worn off, you get an unholy pain in the temple and are liable to pewk.

December 2 - tomorrow
Is National Mutt Day
http://m.examiner.com/examiner/pm_60901/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=lFm2OmJm

I hope this post breeds more awareness of our scruffier canine friends.

Paws for a moment and consider their situation.

Don''t make them beg for your attention.

And if you're well-heeled, buy a mutt a manicure or pedicure. Today.

Much as I love dogs, I could never keep one because we both work. It would be unfair to let a dog rot while ‘er indoors and myself are out all day.

Thought you were going to get off scottie free there didn’t you? I thought I’d poodle up to the pun to throw you off the scent. I can be a right little terrier at times.

Now where’s that young lad Jack? I’m getting hungry. “Oi Jack, russell up some grub will you. I wouldn’t mind a nice collieflower cheese.” I have to meet the Mrs at the station and setter on her way to the supermarket. She’ll hound me chronic if I don’t pointer in the right direction. Probably cut my trousers to shreds, so I’ll have my bum hanging out and peeking knees! She’s always calling me a tosa, just the slightest mistake and she tells me “Hold out your hand while I whippet.” 

I’d send the lad to it for me, but that would only throw a spaniel in the works and I’d still have to go to retriever anyway. When ‘er indoors gets in a tiz, it be goulish, I can tell you.

Right, best get off now, chow, chow.

Ding goes the door bell. I open the door to find the neighbour standing there.
"Hi Ena" I say to her. She's quite a foxy lady.
"Have any spare milk? Our Johnny has wolfed down all of our's." she says in her husky voice. I invite her in to the kitchen.
"Doing anything special for Xmas?" she enqires.
"No, you're barking up the wrong tree there." I growl. "Are you expecting any good presents?" I continue.
"I doubt it" she replies "just the usual new pair of pants."
She sits on my lap and I cockern eye at her. I know where this is leading to. "Carefull" I say, "we don't want to get collared again for this hanky panky." I could tell you a tail or two, but I paws for the sake of good taste.
As she leaves, I say "Nice of you to come by." and we both howl with laughter.

He was the most dishonest and cleverest card shark in the city, but the police said he will be dealt with.

From your report with the Met Police.

I spoke to some of the officers under the command of Detective Inspector Ali B. Aster, just before they raided the shark’s illegal gaming den. I asked one of them, “Can Aster bring this card shark, Jack Dupp,  to book?”

The sergeant replied “Oh yes, we’ll get Black Jack, as he’s known in his club, bang to rights. I don’t want blow the DI’s trumpet, but he’s a good copper, a real diamond geezer.”

Dogs would not be used on this raid as the handler had to take some puppies to the vet to be spayed.

There was a great deal of tension in the air as we prepared to raid the club. The officers shuffled around and took up position. Then came the word to go. We rushed over the bridge and crashed through the door. The Sergeant was shouting “Armed police, nobody move, stay where you are and hit the deck.”

One of the players cried out “What the blinking hell’s going on? Have a heart this is my first time here. ”

Another said “I can’t stay down here for long, I’m getting old, you know.” The PC stood over him said “Don’t crib, ageism is against the Queen’s law. Others just stared poker faced at the floor.

DI Aster pulled Jack to his feet and said “This is a black day for you.” And then red him his rights. “I should have known this raid was on the cards.” said Jack "I saw it in the stars, the Moon was in line with Jupiter and acemetrical with Venus.

DI Aster poured a glass of orange duce and offer some to Jack, who shook his head. “Suit yourself.” The DI said. He looked around at all the gamblers and pointing to one table said “These are four of a kind. Looks like you had a full house here tonight.” He motioned to the sergeant and said “Right, take ‘em away.”

One pair of gamblers tried to make a wild break for it, but there were two pair of officers at the door who grabbed them and put them straight in the back of the van. “A right royal mess you jokers are in.” said one officer to them, "Well, you've had your chips now.

The officers left the club feeling flushed with success. The last one out called out the mowser, "Here kitty", closed and sealed the door behind him.

DEMOGRAFX!!!

Shame on you, you have failed to point out that December is Tie Month.



I pin this omission squarely on your shoulders. Usually I would bow to your superior knowledge on such matters, but, admit it, this time you've been collared.

I don't understand, I'm not a tricky dickie. Were you afraid I'd stitch you up like a kipper, or did you think I'd just tell you to get knotted?

I may forgive you, boot lacet time I do, so please keep us informed or I shall give it to you in the neck.
