When I was a kid Guy Fawkes night was a big event for us, 5th November we would have a makeshift bonfire In the Garden with a box of Standard or Brock Fireworks of which half of them would not go off, you would stand around drinking hot Tomato soup and eating sausages and a Baked Spud that your Father had singed off his eyebrows trying to retrieve the foiled spuds from the remnants of the bonfire. It was great fun, now we seam to have Halloween thrusted in to our life’s uninvited, and poor old Bonfire night is being forgotten, anyone who tried to blow up parliament should be fondly remembered in my book. This year the 5th is on Saturday so go out and party like it is 1605.
This week we had an enquiry for merchandise from Google. It was very funny as I had to send an email and ask them how they had found us.
Donald Trump was having difficulties trying to find his ideal running mate and future Vice President elect. He called David Cameron and asked advise on how he recruited his cabinet. David said “Donald it is easy when George Osbourne wanted to become chancellor I asked him this question, if your father had a son and it wasn’t your brother who would it be and George replied it would be him, and that’s why I made him chancellor. Donald goes home and calls Mike Pence and says ” Mike if you want to be my Vice President you have to answer this question” “If your father had a son and it wasn’t your brother who would it be” Mike looked worried “Donald Can I get back to you on that”. Mike Quickly rang up Barack Obama “Barack I have a question If your father had a son and it wasn’t your brother who would it be?” Barack said “well that would be me” great say Mike. Mike then calls back Donald “the answer to your question if your father had a son and it wasn’t your brother who would it be, its Barack Obama” Donald replies “you idiot its George Osbourne”
