The Laughing Bag
They make you lauyi; we make them squeal. This fortnight: Reg ‘libodoo'
Square sausage or round? Definitely square. I'm a Taurean so I like things solid and substantial. Who inspires you?
Dennis the Menace because he's a cheeky, mischevious lad - atop role model for any middle aged man.
What gets you going?
My wife Pamela Anderson.
What makes you laugh?
Fruit and poultry 7 comedians find infinite things to do with them. Funniest gag courtesy of Tony Blair and his Cabinet?
What gets your goat?
I haven't got one.
Should cannabls be legalised?
It certainly should 'cos it makes you feel cooool, and makes your shite jokes seem really funny.
You are exiled on a desert island. What CD, companion and luxury item do you take?
Phil Collins's Greatest Hits, my electric toothbrush and my pussy Finlay. Endless fun.
Thank God l don't work at Standard Life.
