  1. Roll Call. Say hello! (Pepys’ Diary)

    A query walks into a bar and joins two tables. The waitress asks why it needs two tables for itself. The query replies: "I like this view!".

    Paul Dacre assures me the Daily Mail group have a way of distinguishing between "good breasts" and "bad breasts".

    We're cutting benefits for the blind! Even I don't know what we're thinking here. We've given up making excuses now.
