Magpie thirty-sicks.

Riddle:
Q: Why do we love knockers?
A: Because they are something to a-door!
Boom boom!

















And now for something completely silly.

A one armed, one leg’d man I saw,
one eyebrow gone, but there was more;
one eye, one ear
and worse I fear;
His house had only half a door!

  1. Now I could say something rude about a one-eyed trouser snake but I better not, for the sake of internet civility and all that jazz :)You are a very silly man Stafford - keep it up (boom, boom).

  2. there once was guy down under
    who lived on a hill;
    he wouldn't,
    but his kangeroo will!

    (bada-boom)

    Wait until you check out your
    poem on my site.

  4. You remind me of Groucho Marx with your fast-moving repartee. You don't smoke cigars, do you? It is also possible you might be channelling Spike Milligan.
    Keep the chuckles comin'....

  10. "His house had only half a door."
    I wish that my house had a floor.
    This walking around
    Without touching the ground
    Is getting to be quite a bore.

  13. Hi Stafford,
    Your fun response to an image that mostly gets a sombre reaction is quite refreshing!

  17. Why do men name their penises?

    Because they don't want a complete stranger making all of their decisions!

  18. If only a half a door is necessary then a full door is redundant...sorry...must be the tequila.
