I was reading some article or other recently with someone who had survived what sounded like a horrific car crash. Seriously injured, the man had only narrowly escaped full decapitation. He featured under the headline "The Luckiest Man In The World".
You rarely hear the expression "it's a funny old world" when out at a comedy night but I've heard it used twice at a funeral.
Nobody 'turned round and said' anything to me ever. That seems odd given (and I think this is a northern thing) the frequent use of the expression "he/she turned round and said".
There's something very funny about watching a stand up comedian who is not funny.
I frequently withdraw from civilisation because of a game called Civilisation.
