Magpie 136


A tabloid newspaper holds an editorial meeting to select an image for its front page



That could be Prince Harry in a wig
On the right. But the bottom's too big.
We can't use the duck,
And the plane is too - plain.
The whirlpool is rubbish.
It's, frankly, insane.
I've run out of ideas now. To be honest, it's
A terrible shame we've no shots of Kate's t**s.

(with thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales for the picture)

  3. You play well with others it seems
    spinning yarns and twine and string
    out of bits and t**s.

  9. You made my day! Yes, you are so right about the t....s! But they could doll up the plain plane...! Such great fun reading this! I always enjoy your sunny-side of things!
