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.

JUST NUGGETS

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.

HOLY BUN­NIES!

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.
