An Announcement & A Bizarre Invitation

Last night at choir practice:

Hi, I'm from Touch TV and we're doing a series for the Discovery Channel on the Human Body. One of the episodes is looking at laughter.

We all found this very funny and laughed - right on cue.

Yes, we use up 341,000 calories during our lifetime just in the act of laughing.

Amazing - this could be the new diet we've all been waiting for!

We'll have 1,000 custard pies at our studios in Neston tomorrow [totalling 341,000 calories] and are looking for volunteers to come along to fling them at each other.

I find this idea strangely irresistable...

  3. Now that was fun to read about - I can only imagine the laughter whilst throwing 1,000 flans around. I hope the show segment will be on a website so we can all enjoy the fun.

    I love the idea of a cat flap in the pub ...

  4. Joy - I'm not surprised you're not surprised :) And the answer is loads - so keep laughing :D

    Rosengeranium - I did!

    Kate - we all laughed until we ached! I think every pub bar should have one!
