"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

T.K. is back!


I haven't treated you to one of T.K.'s gems lately, so here's one I got from him this morning. You know what they say - there's many a true word spoken in jest!
Julia Gillard, the Prime Minister of Australia, and David Cameron, her British counterpart, are shown a time machine which can see 100 years into the future.
They both decide to test it by asking a question each.
Julia goes first. "What will Australia be like in 100 years time?"
The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action and gives her a printout.
She reads it out. "The country is in good hands under the new Prime Minister, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries."
David thinks "It's not bad, this time machine, I'll have a bit of that." So he asks, "What will Great Britain be like in 100 years time?"
The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action, and he gets a printout.
But he's just staring at it.
"Come on David," says Julia, "what does it say?"
David replies, "I'm buggered if I know. It's all in Arabic."

Isn't that tale ever so slightly Islamophobic? Mind you "buggered" is definitely a term I would associate with our slimeball of a prime minister - remembering that he was a fag at Eton.

Islamophobic? You may think that, YP; I couldn't possibly comment... ;)
