And another

Yasser Arafat has been replaced by his brother Marrowfat.

He’s a batchelor and has always played a key part in the peas process.

[apologies to non Brits who might not get this one]

    “Bad”? Not at all! It’s the first thing that’s put a smile on my face today – thank you Daisy! :-)

    Thank goodness you didn’t claim he’d been laid in state wearing a Newcastle United shirt, Glasgow Rangers shorts and Lazio socks on the spurious grounds that Arafat had expressed the wish to be buried in the Gazza strip.

    I eat my peas with honey,
    I’ve done it all my life,
    it makes the peas taste funny,
    but it keeps them on the knife :-)

    Sorry Mary! I think that once you see this picture of a tin of Batchelors Marrowfat peas and read the original again:

    Yasser Arafat has been replaced by his brother Marrowfat. He’s a batchelor and has always played a key part in the peas process.

    all will become clear?

    Clear in the sense that it was a crap joke to begin with… ;-0))
