Don’t Let’s Be Beastly to the Germans was the title of a Noel Coward song. I fully agree. Let’s be beastly to the Dutch instead.
Last week I sent the following cartoon out to my British and German friends, many of whom then forwarded it in turn to their friends via Facebook, Whatsapp, etc.
Have a guttural day, won’t you!
Brezhnev goes to a milk production factory and asks:
Do you think that you can double the production?
The farm manager responds:
Yes comrade, we can do that.
Brezhnev is pleased with the response and decides to push it a little and asks:
How about trebling the production?
The farm manager responds but this time a little less confident:
Well, yes we can but I fear public may found it a bit watery!
Have a productive day, won’t you!
I’m a fan of Germany. I tell Brits, Germany is like Britain… just better-run. Germany is a wonderful land. And so is this instrumental by
The Shadows. (Hank Marvin is like Ricky King – but better.)
Have a wonderful day, won’t you!
There was a singer in the 1960s by the name of Marty Wilde. He had a daughter, who nowadays presents gardening programmes. Germans who visit Schley might be interested. Back in the 1980s, however, Kim Wilde was much more famous for hits like this
Knaller from 1981.
Have a Wilde day, won’t you!
1970’s police series were the business. Hard-smoking, hard-drinking, womanising cops with politically incorrect, maverick, methods of catching criminals, including car chases galore.
The Sweeney was beyond my bedtime in those days. Saturday nights were for The Professionals. Both had great car chases and theme tunes.
Then in the 1990s Nissan produced some hilarious spoof adverts based on
The Sweeney and The Professionals.
Shut it! Enjoy!
The Professionals spoof advert!
Have a professional day, won’t you!
The Thirteenth of August is a significant date.
International Left-Handers Day.
The Berlin Wall was built on this date in 1961.
Here’s a joke to take you through this date.
Günter Schabowski has passed away today. On arriving at the gates of heaven, St Peter tells him,
“You will be getting into heaven.”
Schabowski asks St Peter,
St Peter shuffles his papers and says,
“Das tritt nach meiner Kenntnis… ist das sofort, unverzüglich.”
Have an august day, won’t you!

Is this good news, or bad news? I must admit, I always had a soft spot for the Pacer.
Have a pacing day, won’t you!
