Today is National Bubble Bath Day.


Kindly use a proprietary Bubble Bath solution rather than making your own bubbles.

With reference to the apples:-

M'lud, I can say without fear of contradiction, I have no apples in my eye. Irist my case.

Core...... its enough to give you the pip.


As for the apricots:-

What comes apricots? A childs bed. (Après cots)

I quite like a little fruit mixed in my salad. Apple goes well with either Lettuce or Chard.

Electric apricots??? Watt is this producer doing plugging these? It's shocking. Wire would anyone want to eat such energy wasting fruit? They must rate very low on the green gage.

Do they have a very low voltage, or range into the higher voltages?

Which reminds me, I was once asked to stand up and sing 'Oh my darling Clemantine'. Everyone boo'ed so I sat suma than I expected.

Don_1, my sincerest congratulations: I came up "empty" for  apricot puns, searching high and low on the internet! Dunno how you did it!

My search was fruitless.

You should have sought the assistance of a pear of nuts, but all I could hear was you pine, "Apple, I need a fruit PUN, not a fruit BUN".

I too often speak to my kitchen utensils.

Right. Now this one is so contrived I can't believe I am going to do it.

A berry from the Antipodes was begining to get on my nerves, so I had to tell it push off. I made it quite clear I didn't want it around saying "Go ose berry".

I love it! These really are grape fruit puns, in fact I might say they are divine.

When it comes to drinks, citrus fruit juices are always in the limelight.

Good thing. People may have misunderstood it saying, "Go lose berry" if it occurred on No-L Day!

A round of raptorous applause for the Bald Eagle.

I bet Don_1 can pull a pun outta this. Why? Because he's talonted, that's why.

I shall see what I can do to honour the claws in my TNS contract.

In the mean time here is a joke for that miserable old sod Perry. With any luck it will make Perry grin.

As I approached the door, I saw a sign which read 'Knocker not working - please use the button & buzz hard.' I reached the conclusion that someone was falcon about.

There's a clawback in your contract that - as in Bernie Madoff's case - you must pay back TNS every dollar in excess profits that you received from them. Sorry.
