Poppy Appeal

So I dropped my £1 coin in the red charity box and the lady from the British Legion said "here's your poppy". "Would you like a pin"? "Yes please", I replied with glee. She then stuttered and explained in a sarcastic voice, "I'm duty bound by Health and Safety regulations to tell you" - wait for it - "this is a pin and it might be sharp. It may give you a little prick".

The lady, her assistant and I all fell about laughing.

How ridiculous! Glad you had a good laugh about it.

I love those little poppies too. Totally worth risking a pin-prick.

I had a half centimetre section of cactus removed from my thumb on Friday. How come there was no warning on the cactus. Very funny Jeremy. I will be sure not to get up tomorrow. Too dangerous.

You tight-fisted old git!
