Dear Sirs,

I'm writing to complain about your book 'How To Meet & Win With Women'. I purchased with good faith, thinking that, a grown man aged 53, it was time I lost my virginity. Having read the book cover to cover the other night, I gradually built up the confidence to ask my cousin Noreen out to see a showing of the film 'Bean', but the evening was a complete and utter disaster. We went in McDonalds for dinner, but she flounced outside the restaurant in a strop. (Women, eh? Bonkers! Such fussy, surly whingers!)

Now, quite appreciating that my opening gambit "Any chance of a fuck, then?" was perhaps a little forward in the circumstances, I resolved to be more circumspect next time.

As for the following sorry occasion, I asked Gwen (the lady in the shops downstairs) on a day off to see Spurs playing at Queen's Park Rangers, but no score, no shags - she took the tickets at once, and went with Noreen instead, the greedy, stingy, rude little cow.

A right wrong 'un!

I regret I'm now at least 200 pounds out of pocket, trying hard, but get no success, angry, still unfulfilled, can't afford to pay my dear old mother her weekly rent, and want total refunds of the useless book and for the one unused cinema ticket. (Enclosed.)

Sorry things had to come to this.

Yours sincerely,

M. Goddard.

As Veronica clasped Pat's engorged phallus between her restless, rapid fingers and bent over to start to lick the pulsating mass, she soon realised her lover's penis seemed more supple than normal; it appeared to have a peculiar life of its own, seeking her busy tongue as it moved about, rather than Veronica taking authority. She tried not to bite the beast expanding in her mouth, as Veronica mumbled fretfully: "Pat, summat's different, love."

Pat moaned, yet heard nothing. The pill he'd adventurously taken earlier that afternoon was beginning to supply a steady stream of drugs, a very complex chemical cocktail into his shrinking brain. 'Complex', as it had said on the opaque bottle.

Veronica continued to tease her partner's veiny head, unaware of the snot oozing from his nose.

As Pat climaxed, syrupy semen spurted, burst out forcefully from his recently released tumescence, apparently out of control, and sprayed against the bedroom's ceiling. Pat's powerless body toppled on to the bed, his foamy Cyclopean organ a vertical column.

Veronica's eyes followed the line of Pat's knotty stump and read there, in revolting creamy script:

"Abracadabra! Yes! A fuck to die for."

Veronica's dreadful screams could be heard miles away...

1st - David Bourke with:
An Essex girl is crossing the road, when she gets hit by an XR3i. As she is lying on the ground, the driver, Dave, rushes out of the car to see if she is alright.
"I'm so sorry, luv! I just didn't see yer. Are yer OK?" he blurts out.
"Everyfing is just a blur, I can't see a fing" she says, tearfully.
Concerned, the man leans over the woman to test her eyesight. He asks, "How many fingers have I got up?"
"Oh my God! NAAAH!" she screams.
"Don't tell me I'm paralysed from the waist down an' all!!!"
This here so-called joke is, it seems, just typical of the rude, sexist, misogynist sheer rubbish the female half of Essex county have had to endure. Not even remotely amusing, it mocks, I see, the average Sharon and Tracy as frilly flirts, very easy lays, tarts, dim hussies on Page 3, gagging fevered harlots (should that be 'Harlows'?), and whores going round screwing with anyone and anything in trousers. Men that rehash this view here are surely morons!

Bourke's Parakeet Facts

The Bourke's Parakeet is thought by many to be one of the most beautiful of all parakeets, dressed as it is in shades of sunset pink and vivid iridescent blues. As one of the grass parakeets of Australia, it is a favourite of many who keep birds. They do best when given some room to fly, rather than being kept in a smaller cage. I have more than once heard their keepers liken them to an over-sized butterfly, and this is a very good description of the way they fly - they flit and bounce in the air in a very similar manner to butterflies, and are a pleasure to watch, with their sweet voices and playfulness. They are quiet, mellow little birds during the middle of the day, but dawn and dusk is another story. Dusk is the magic time for a Bourke's parakeet; they come fully into their element then, seeming to blend into partial invisibility in the uncertain light. Be careful if you plan on having several species share an aviary, and want to include the beautiful Bourke's parakeet - when other species are already roosting for the night, the Bourkies will be at their most active. For example, I had a friend whose Bourkies thought it a great game to knock roosting finches from their perch, like a row of bowling pins! Unlike many birds, the Bourke's big eyes are adapted to allow them to see clearly at dawn and dusk. They have a very playful, boisterous attitude at these times, and they have been known to tease other species sharing a flight with them, who have trouble seeing at all so close to full dark, much less enough to defend themselves. One advantage to keeping Bourkies, is that you always know the gender of your birds, with the exception of some of the rarer colour mutations, like the Rose and the Pink. In all the other Bourke's parakeets, the male will have a vivid blue eyebrow - as soon as you see this distinctive marking, you can be sure that you are looking at a male. Like all the other Grass parakeets, Bourkies do very well on a diet of Soak Seed and Nestling Food, under which regime they seem to breed and feed reliably. They will use a nestbox, but do seem to do better with an open-topped narrow pyramidal design, rather than the usual closed rectangular shape more commonly seen.


David Bourke Facts

The David Bourke (gramcheckerius onesadanorakgeekius), a feared type of Hairy Bush Parakeet, usual habitat Rochester, Kent, U.K., is thought by some to be one of the most deeply repugnant, foul-mouthed, and highly offensive of all sad lowlifes that post on the Internet to Alt.Anagrams.

Not to be confused with its more attractive Australian Rules footballer namesake, it has a pinkish-white hue, is skinny, with dark brown silky plumage, bleary little bloodshot pale blue beady weasel eyes, and a distinctive prominent hook-shaped beak.

Completely nocturnal (to the severe irritation of its one breeding partner, the Shrew-Faced Little Blue Sea Shrike), the David Bourke is flightless, transfixed by its reflection in a computer monitor, composing anagrams that are occasionally moderately amusing, but more often, puerile and tiresome, weakened with, on the whole (heh heh!) regular reliance on the 'C' word, foul abuse, and sheer narrow-minded homophobic toilet humour.

The David Bourke is a vegetarian - the diet is thought to consist entirely of pine kernels, millet-meal, kola-nut, seakale, algae, beans, honey, wheat, berries, beetroot, leek, cheese sandwiches, and huge quantities of Stella Artois beer. Virtually impossible, it seems, to house-train, the David Bourke is happiest wallowing around, heavily camouflaged, indeed unbothered by, its stinking filth. Seeking to keep happily to itself, it ventures out of its cage every two weeks between the high months of every March/October to watch a Formula One Grand Prix.

Shy, sneaky, not noted for speech, the David Bourke has only sometimes been known to talk freely. Too risky as a family home pet, easy to anger, it bites when provoked, so is better taken out, shaken-up, and shot. (Or, at the very least, neutered, tied-up and flung in a zoo).

Every winter, the David Bourke hibernates. A keen bass guitarist (so it says), the David Bourke has a penchant for spewing music-related anagrams (well, it is a relative of the Dartford Warbler) and extremely dirty nursery rhymes.

A winner, I see, of several 'Anagrammies', (Hey, what the hell are they?), the David Bourke is, I guess, with a hugely sly nature, perfectly adapted to a free, easy highlife of inactive sloth.
