Nothing but a hound dog

I couldn't sleep at all last night, finally gave up and checked emails etc and found that a friend had just posted something on Facebook.  So we started chatting and - oh dear - two hours went by.  And he's given me lots of music recommendations (in return, I gave him Okkervil River, The Mountain Goats and Tom Waits' album Alice) so I'll have to put on earphones and listen later.  I could be doing it now actually.  Right, there we go.  John Hiatt comes to mind first, so he's on now.

I was going to tell you about another conversation I had today about the sort of clothes I like but, having written for some time, I realise I lack the vocabulary to make it remotely interesting.  So I've scrapped that and instead will tell you the funniest thing I've read on Twitter all day.  Or maybe I'm just easily pleased - anyway, I chortled mightily once I'd worked it out.

Say Jesus backwards.
Now say God backwards.
Now say them together.

Splendid, innit?

Dinahmow reminds me about Prince, the talking dog from That's Life.  Still hilarious, do watch.  I done quite a few lols.

Teehee. I think I would have to be careful who I shared that with around here, though!

Is it taking their name in vain? Surely not.

I think Esther Rantzen did it first.

I didn't sleep well last night either... the time confusion begins!
Dogs always know what their talking about.

Oh, dear, you're picking on the dogs now! x

http://youtu.be/4IMOSN0WYvg - indeed, Di - hilarious. I'll add it to the post.

Why is it that losing an hour's sleep stops one getting any at all, Scarlet?

Only the sausage dogs, John!

I must admit that when I first watched the video, I thought it was a sketch on a comedy show. Very funny! We never had that show in the U.S. nor had I ever heard of Esther Rantzen. Her voice sounds just like Mrs. Thatcher's.

What's the difference between a sausage dog and a costermonget? A costermonget bawls out his wares on the pavement.Victorian joke.

Which reminds me of the equally ancient one about the Great Dane and the dachshund who go for a walk in the snow. The Great Dane says "My feet are freezing". and I can't remember the dachshunds reply.

Martina, thank you for keeping up the tone. Rog and Mike, stop sniggering at the back there.
