Stuart's Recommended Book

Today Stuart is recommending The Timewaster Letters because it made him laugh so much on the tube that his nose ran and he had to blow it into his sleeve. What recommendation could be higher?

The Timewaster Letters

Assault with a Deadly Suitcase

I nearly plummeted to my dead this morning.

Oh, by the way, please excuse the exaggeration I have small injuries and am milking it for all that its worth.

On my way to work I was standing on the escalator at Kings Cross reading my book ('Housekeeping', thanks mum) and minding my own business when my feet were swept from under me by a huge (see apology for exaggeration above) suitcase. Some ejit had let go of their case a few steps behind me and it had tumbled down until it hit the backs of my legs. I nearly pulled my arm from its socket hanging on to the rail so that I didn't go flying.

So, no tragedy really. Probably won't even have any bruises but my legs and my arm hurt a bit so I'm fishing for sympathy!

Stuart's Joke of the Day

There was a man who entered a local paper's pun contest. He sent in ten
different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win.
Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
