EATING HIS WORDS
My MM nephew sends me funny little texts and I chuckled at his latest, which read: “Hi dear aunt, I swallowed a dictionary and it gave me ‘Thesaurus’ throat I’ve ever had.” R. JACK, ARMADALE, VIC.
JUGGLE WITH DEATH
MM had been to the hospital to visit his friend who had been in a nasty accident. “He’s very lucky,” MM told me. “It just missed his juggler.” What on earth did he mean? Then, it dawned on me – he meant jugular! A.W. CHALMERS, HIGHTON, VIC.
My husband and I were at the drive-through picking up dinner and the lady at the window asked if we wanted any condiments. “No thanks,” said my husband. “I don’t want a compliment – just my nuggets!” WILMA WINTER, KEDRON, QLD.
I had a laugh when we were discussing the names of groups of animals or their plurals and, in all seriousness, my boyfriend wondered out loud if a group of rabbits was called a rabbi! M.
