Areas of particular contention:

4 her dear mother
5 A phone bill that totals over 155
6 at least 254 pairs of shoes

And those 'things' are...
1. EVERYTHING he says.
2. EVERYTHING he does.

2nd - Tony Crafter with:
Dear Miriam,

The other day I set off for work leaving my husband Cliff alone watching TV as usual.

I'd only travelled about two-hundred -and- twenty metres when the engine spluttered and the car chugged to a stop. I scuttled back to get my husband's help, but when I got home I found Cliff posing in front of the bedroom mirror dressed in my underwear and high-heeled shoes, and wearing my make up.

After I confronted Cliff, he said he'd put on my lingerie because he couldn't find any of his own underwear. But when I asked about the make up he broke down and admitted that he'd been wearing my clothes for ages. I told him it has to stop, or I will leave him.

He lost his job recently and says he's been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love Cliff very much, but since the ultimatum he's become distant and I can't get through to him any more.

Please can you help?

Mrs B, Essex


Miriam says ...

Dear Mrs B, Essex

Sudden stalling of cars after being driven short distances can be caused by a variety of faults in the engine. Start by checking that there's no muddy sediment showing in the fuel line. If you don't find any showing, check that the jubilee clips which hold the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold are tight.

If none of these approaches highlights the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is somehow faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburettor float chamber.

As an added rule, Mrs B, do remember to keep an eye on the fuel gauge daily, as, when the level gets low, unhealthy muck in the bottom of the tank can be disturbed and rehashed and there's a likelihood your engine may get mudded up.

I recommend: '' as a handy web address. (And download: 'Friendly Engine Info For Women').

3rd - Neil Ramsay with:
Geneva Convention: Article Five

Should any doubt arise as to whether persons, having committed a belligerent act and having fallen into the hands of the enemy, belong to any of the categories enumerated in Article Four, such persons shall enjoy the protection of the present Convention until such time as their status has been determined by a competent tribunal.
Unless of course these persons have been subjectively convicted of 'potential suspicion' by the demented hothead Bush or his malevolent US government henchmen as part of their incompetent 'War on Terror'. In this case, the 'atheist felons' may be indefinitely confined on Guantanamo Bay and interrogated at length in that unethical 'court', never to get a legal trial.

Adie Pena with:
Two men drinking heavily at a bar.

The first man says too loudly, "Oh, goddammit! I've had sex with Eve Floyd, your mother!"

The second man, cautiously though, says nothing.
Again, the first man says loudly, "I've had sex with your mother! Ugh!"

Finally, the second man bravely says, "You've had too much to drink tonight. It's now time to go home, Dad."

sundogg99 with:
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'


My dreams tend more to the hedonic: Creative adult behaviour with pliant, statuesque ladies (oh, her tits!), then fellatio, and (the grand finale) eventual, wet release.

Neil Ramsay with:
Space - the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before
George - a witless warmonger. These are the stories of GW Bush. His seven year felony: to paralyze innocent nations, to sell weapons for oil and net profit, to incite expensive wars like his 'devoted' father before him.

Neil Ramsay with:
May we send regards to unsung sporting hero, Football Manager Raymond Domenech for our grand win over the lax, slapdash, careless, claptrap, benign, clearly jaded French team in our recent crunch match.
