Ripping Yarns

I don't read things carefully enough and often get the wrong end of the stick.
But in the latest Radio Times it said 'Sahara with Michael Palin'.

My heart missed a beat. Surely not.

Oh No - I can't even bear to think of it.

Very good!

And your Photoshop skills are getting exceptional Kaz. Particularly your Handy work.

PS He's a national treasure who is a bit too perfect.

But there is some familial resemblence now you point it out.

Frightening. And as incongruous as seeing Jesus slapping the back of Hitler.

I so thought that this was going to be about unravelling old pieces of knitting and making something new from the wool. . .

The hand belongs to John McCain - I just replaced the head.
Perfect - yes I'm still waiting for the brothel/three in a bed/whiplash/satsuma/sex scandal.

For a moment there - I thought we were in Canada .

Erm - well I didn't actually.
I'm still looking :)

Maybe - but not as improbable.

I don't believe you.
But they all did well after Monty didn't they?

'You betcha!'
Is that Texan for Hear hear?

I've visited several places that Mr P saw in that show.

I have yet to make the aquaintance of Mrs Palin. I don't particularly wish to visit Alaska, mind you.

I'm somewhat troubled by the turning blue gig? Is this some sort or irradiation?

Has Michael Palin gone rogue?

Some might say Himalaya...Heralya.

And Now That Would Be Something Completely Different ............

Ever thought of going on television?
Alaska is the new Tuscany - I hear.

White rabbit:
Sarah is turning Michael into a Tory.
He will need to be decontaminated before his next series.

Michael has gone a bit 'off message' in recent years.
He's a tad too conventional these days.

I'm sure you must be right - but I haven't a clue what Heralya means.

Yes - a good laugh perhaps.

I've heard Michael has a girl in every port. And Sarah's got five kids. What is it with these Palins that they can't control themselves?

Is Mrs. Palin just Mr. Palin's muppet? Would be consequent, all just an intellectual joke ...

A silly bit of wordplay really. Himalaya and Heralya (her a liar) making reference to the many times Sarah Palin appears to have been economical with the truth.

It's easy to confuse those two words. One of them is a vacuous desert incapable of supporting intelligent life.

Vicus makes a good point!

Here's a link that might amuse

Unfaithful to his dull, homely wife of 46 years?
No - I refuse to believe it.

She's certainly a muppet - but much more dangerous.

(blushes) ..Very Good .... as a crossword solver I should have spotted that.
It just looked like a name from a Greek myth.

Ah yes - but Sarah gave birth to other forms of life including Track and Trick.

I love the line ".... his new silk boxer shorts would soon be more endangered than the leatherback sea turtle."

I am so impressed with this line of thought and they may be perfectly matched but unaware.
It's easy to misread things, the Colin spent a good fifteen minutes watching a programme about bears. Whaen he misread the title Big Beasts. He was infact hoping for Big Breasts.

I suspect that Mr. P knows more about foreign policy than she does, having made so many programmes about johnny foreigner places. But can he shoot a moose?

Damn, Vicus has the best lines.

Blogger KAZ said...

Poor the Colin.
I'm always doing things like that - but I can't remember any examples.
Kev reads slowly and remembers everything.

Probably - shooting a moose sounds very Monty Python.

Oh Roses:
Please don't encourage him!
