LL Limerick Of Limerick And His Limericks On Laudanum
1. This monkey's paw? Miss, stay your purse
For the novelty comes with a curse:
Whatever you wish
Tends to turn to a bish
And your better becomes quite your worse.

2. But she pooh-poohed the gent as a wimp:
Bared her soul to the segment of chimp:
Now awaits, in her room,
Inescapable doom
At the hand of an ape with a limp.

Letters From the Editor

It's all on for tonight. The lads'll be ready by the false stove at midnight, and once you start your diversion, they'll be out of the bottom of the hut quick as you like, then a rush to the fence and over, just as we planned. I'd like to see the looks on the lion guards' faces tomorrow when they realise all of we antelopes have escaped. Ha! Didn't expect that, did you? Once again I surprise you with a surprise twist.

State of the Pound
The pound is up four-and-twenty against a wise investment in an exciting new range of pies.

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.

"I'd like to thank my milkman for the two extra pints this morning," said MR MILLINGTON of this mathematically inevitable achievement.

MR NASH added: "Will exchange priceless original copy of issue one for kindling."

* Though not, of course, in the sense of assassination. The Weekly has had cause to assassinate no more than two hundred 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: Appease the Hideous Man-Beast.
Played chiefly in: Ebury Hill.
Objective: Players attempt, in turn, to knock a marble out of the ring by shooting their tolley. A succeeding player may take another shot; but if no marble is knocked out, and the tolley remains in the ring, another player may attempt to knock that tolley out and thus eliminate the first shooter. Shooting must be performed strictly according to the rules of "knuckling down."
Obstacles: The distraction afforded by the noise from next door's game of Marbles.
Rating: Accurate.
