A real tweet #1852

I’ve always associated canaries with feathers and coalmines.

Definitely not with Erisymum.

Maybe someone has an explanation.

In the meantime, here’s a true story:

My uncle John (Group Captain, RAF (retd), O.B.E)  – never known for displaying restraint in any of his endeavours – was once at a party and getting into the high rpm stuff in heroic fashion when he lurched over to his hostess and asked “Tell me, Shusan… do lemonsh have legsh?”

“Now don’t be silly, John, of course they don’t”

To which he replied ” Bugger. I think I’ve jusht shqueezed your canary into my gin and tonic…”
