Norwegian Blue

Somalia is now the piracy capital of the world. As Africa’s premier failed state, it is also a hotbed of endangered species smuggling. Including parrots. Coincidence? I don’t think so…

When will the world take a stand against these feathered Moriarties?


Can you spot the sneaky Svengali on the shoulder pad?

The vicar was coming for lunch and the parrot had an unsociable habit. All was well until the hostess brought in the dish of the day: sucking pig, whereupon the parrot intoned;
You lucky little sucking pig,
You lucky little swine,
You've sage and onions up your bum,
I've sealing wax up mine.

May it haunt you for ever and I am free at last.

Poor Vicars - so much cruelty inflicted in their names, all unwittingly. Not to mention the number of times middle-aged men end up running around the house in their wives' underwear whenever Vicars come to visit in all those Alan Ayckbourn comedies. I mean, really, they're not *all* gay, you know.

I had dinner with three Catholic priests on Friday. No, really I did. We didn't have fish either.

They told the WORST jokes.

They were Irish.
