Comedy, Fun & Recreations ♥♦

Laughing Mouse
Morecambe & Wise
Sports croppers
 
Money
Doombar

Jokes (of all sorts, puns, howlers), comedy (some TV), comedians, sports mishaps, puzzles (no Jigsaw
jigsaws – find one on the web like Jigsaw Planet), sudoku, real ale, pubs, and money (which isn’t particularly funny per se, but you need it for many things that are). There’s also a lot of fun you can have and odd things you can do with E N g L i S H and I’ve a few more serious remarks about the language itself.

Politics & Opinions

Crown
Religions
Anti-Israel and US Protests

Religions, monarchies, state-sponsored brutality against other nations (armed forces) and their own citizens (police) are abominations; most states (including so-called “democracies”) are corrupt, with governments and law-enforcers uncontrolled – this is just a sample of my totally reasonable bigotry; Daesh, Catalan democracy, American Arms. [And I don’t hold out much hope for the future of civilization on this planet.]
