their inflamed bladders


You can see, can't you, why I couldn't have posted this yesterday?

Very funny - how true is that do you think. I came across the Cantonese version of this many years ago when I was working in Manchester I was given a red coloured menu and my friends (all Caucasian) were given a white menu. Trouble was a part from the difference in price - red menu cheaper. It was all in Chinese script. I didn't read Chinese then. Well still can't read more than a handful of characters.

Oh, I most certainly do understand why you didn't post this yesterday! Funny!

Good to have your laughter on the blog.

I can't guarantee its veracity. I heard it on Radio 2, told by a presenter who likes Charlotte Church, so I can't think he'd fib !

Ronda
I thought so...
