This Frog isn’t fast enough on the draw to catch the wily Dragonfly…
I always find something to smile about whenever webcomic XKCD updates, but I actually found this genuinely rather poignant!
I know I post this every year, but It’s quite the funniest thing I’ve ever heard and makes the festive season for me!
Frank Kelly is probably best known these days as Father Jack “DRINK, FECK, GIRLS” Hackett from Father Ted.
“Good King Boroslav looked out,
on the night of grungers.
Saw them wurdling round about,
Armed with rubber plungers.
Brightly shone their artefacts,
Red their possets glowing.
He knew not from whence they came,
But he knew where they were going.
Out he went into the snow,
Loud his lummocks ringing.
With his moulies all aglow,
And his trousers clinging.
Back he brought those grungers bold
Warmed them by the fire dogs,
Saved them from the bitter cold
By thawing out their Yule logs.
Those who would a grunger be,
Take heed of this warning.
For there is no guarantee,
You will live till morning.
If you wurdle in the snow
In a spot you’ve chosen.
Dawn’s first light is going to show
Your woggling irons are frozen”

My parents-in-law own a garden centre, and nothing enlivens my visits to see them more than to see a tray of fat balls for sale in the shop (yes, I know I have a juvenile sense of humour!)
Thus I particularly enjoyed this post (with the superb picture above) by master satirist The Lakelander on semi-professional Piers Fletcher-Dervish impersonator Ed Balls.
Bookmark The Lakelander’s blog. It’s great.
