Snot Funny

Roger came over for tea last night, and with all the talk of local delicacies, we decided to slum it a bit and try our local chippy.

The fish and chips looked first class, but we were slightly put out by the sight of the man queuing in front of us, who at first glance appeared to have one of those 70s, punk style paperclips through his septum.

We needn't have worried unduly, though. When the fellow turned round it became apparent that what we had imagined was a bent paperclip through the fellow's nose was nothing more worrying than two rivulets of rather viscous snot which, having dribbled from each nostril, had subsequently joined forces to form a kind of phlegmy wishbone.

Now that's something you don't see in Folkestone.

Maybe not Folkestone, but Capel-le-Ferne does hold an annual 'Snot fair' to discuss matters like:-

Why are there so many lorries coming through the village these days when they could, just as easily, go to France.

What would happen if Folkestone flooded (hopefully not as a result of the fair)? Would they want to come and live here? If so, how will the lorries get through?

Would someone in Folkestone, with a powerful telescope, be able to see up my wifes' skirt?

I can see the by-pass just over there. Why do lorries have to come this way? Dammit, there's already too many cars as it is!

Personally, I find the by-pass, generally, more scenic, anyway!

I'll pass those pressing questions on to Roger if you like.

I'm sure he already has half an eye cocked upon your musings.
Say something about folkestone, and I'm sure he'll go completely cock-eyed.
Or Nookie would, at least.
Interesting picture, that of a cock-eyed Nookie.
