LL Limerick Of Limerick And His Limericks On Laudanum
"I must learn," gnawed the earl at his knuckle
"What's 'Mony a mickle maks a muckle'."
He spared no expense
But it still made no sense
So he took to his wife with a buckle.

Letters From the Editor

Production companies, actors, film crews, magazines, video recorders - we have a whole mini-economy based around television. Just imagine if John Logie Baird had invented a kind of heater instead. What a different, though perhaps warmer, world we'd all be living in.

The BRITON'S SCIENCE has shewn that The Weekly, the magazine which strives to maintain Britain's standards, has topped* one million readers since 1871.

"Are you quite sure you don't mean" said MR MILLINGTON of this mathematically inevitable achievement.

MR NASH added: "I'd like to thank all those talented artists we've been waiting for to die."

* Though not, of course, in the sense of assassination. The Weekly has had cause to assassinate no more than a carriage's-worth of readers.

I'm working off my shame
This chap's purchased an OFFICIAL THE WEEKLY T-SHAPED SHIRT and now he's working off his shame at indulging in such wasteful extravagance. You too may display similar penitence, and perhaps press hot coins guiltily into the hands of a stooped clerk for a copy of MR MILLINGTON's improving books Things About Which My Girlfriend And I Have Argued, A Certain Chemistry, Love and Other Near-Death Experiences and Instructions For Living Someone Else's Life, by patronising the The Weekly Corner Shop corner shop. Items despatched under plain wrapper, school-boys will be chased from the premises with a broom.

Britain's Heritage of Games
Game: Paper-Bounce.
Played chiefly in: Norman's Bay.
Objective: Items of increasing weight are tossed up and caught ten times in a single piece of broadsheet-newspaper held at each corner by a player. Generally, the order of items is: pebble; stone; grass clod; bicycle-horn; milk-pudding; kitten; cat; rock; child; fat child; gas-stove (800-watt microwave oven acceptable); fifth, "dummy" player or player's equivalently sized relative; horse; freestyle.
Obstacles: None but the paper breaking and tangential bruising; this is a team game. Reportedly a game of Paper-Bounce in 1906 using the centre sheet of The Times progressed steadily over four days to introducing a neutron star, which on impact with the paper collapsed through the earth's crust sucking in all players behind it, but two of the five corroborating witnesses were found in 1908 to be in the pay of The Times Shell-Deflecting Waistcoat, Ltd.
Rating: Indicative.
