You'd better tread carefully, you don't want to sound too flat.

I'll spare the sarcasm; wouldn't want to rubber the wrong way Jack.

We seem to be at a crossroad.  Time for a brake.

You're right. You're no squealer, so it's not right to just go race ahead.

I see this tyre pun has become inflated. I shall need to beware of re-treading your steps, because that wheely wont do.

Damned if I know, Don_1. See how lost and disorganized and fragmented and scattered and frightened and isolated we are without you? ;D

Oh come come now, you flatter me.

Or should that read, 'you fatter me'? Not that I'm a pig, or anything like that

Is a phlebotomist a proctologist who is obsessed by infestations of Pulex irritans?

My uncle suffers from Hay Fever rather badly because he was always too late taking his pills. I told my aunty his timing is just no good at all.

Yes, very true. Allergy sufferers are itching to get through the hay fever season.

My GP told my wife and I about a new hayfever trial. I told him "Sign us up!"

Taking lunch with an associate of mine in France a while ago, I said to him I had a need to point Percy at the porcelain, water the Pyjama Python, take a leak (whatever you want to call it), before the sweet was served. As he is fluent in French, I followed his instruction; beckoning the waiter, I asked him 'Where is the lavvy?' The waiter looked at me questioningly, as did my associate.

"Lavvy Monsieur?" The waiter enquired.

"Lavvy?" My associate echoed.

"Well, you told me to 'say lavvy'," I retorted.

My associate, dumbfounded, explained, "I commented, in the French colloquialism, 'Such is life', not 'say lavvy'."

The charges of the otolaryngologist were exorbitant, I had to pay through the nose!

I knew a man who was good at smelling, but he had nose sense.
