The nation goes ever so slightly bonkers on Red Nose Day - hurrah! Previously, it's been very easy to join in - usually via a dress down day at work plus lots of people up to mad things at the station and in the office. Everyone smiling for once - it's a real feel good day and all in a good cause.
This year's different - every day's a dress down day for me now - my friend L suggested yesterday that perhaps I could have a dress up day instead and whilst that's a good idea, I confess that ballgowns and tiaras don't really feature in my wardrobe: scruffy student's always been my favourite look.
So my Red Nose Day contribution for this year is to compile a list of gardening related jokes. For each one (clean ones only please) you leave in the comments below, I'll make a donation of 50p to the cause. Here's a few for starters just to get you warmed up:
Q Why do potatoes make good detectives?
A Because they keep their eyes peeled.
Q What did the grape say when it got trodden on?
A Nothing - it just gave a little w(h)ine
Q What do you get if you cross a four leaf clover with poison ivy?
A A rash of good luck.
So that's £1.50 so far - can you do better? I think so!
