I like it, Malcolm. I've recently done an Antiques Roadshow one myself.

That one works well. Not to be cheeky, or patronising, because your gag's as good as mine, but I think it doesn't need the "whizz" lines.
The fact that the object has just smashed to the floor is clear enough.

Well I like both of them.

They both remind me of a lot of TV shows on now... all the same, with a bit of difference squeezed (squoze?) in...



I once met a guy from Peru
Whose limericks stopped at line two

They both work well. Just on different variations of a theme.

Both excellent. If I'm slightly leaning towards Malky's, it's because of my childish appreciation of swearing. It's what big boys do.

I once knew a chap from Dundee
Whose limericks stopped at line three
Not line four or five,

There once was a man from Dartmoor
Whose limericks stopped at line four
They started so well
And then went to Hell.

There was a young man from Afghanistan
Whose limericks didn't quite scan,
He nearly got it right
One dark and freezing cold night,
Until he realised they didn't rhyme either.
