What are you talking about?!! That florets joke is a great joke! I didn’t know his show was called One Great Leak for mankind – that adds a whole layer to it. I’m envisioning a whole vegetable based performance now.

I was going to comment about “Jihady Jack” originally, but I’m so incensed by the idea that vegetable-centric performance isn’t funny that I got side-tracked.

Seriously, he punned florets with tourettes! Why has no one done this before?!

Is it possible that you are taking this in a over sexual way? only that, you seem a bit over excited.

Sorry, but that’s funny. Just like the original joke, both to a moderate, non side-splitting level.

Am I permitted to be offended that the scolds constantly seek out reasons to be offended?

It is all the wrong way around. The UK should be offering the EU a free trade deal to mitigate the issue of the border in NI. That is better than no deal for the EU and the UK and does not need the UK to be part of a political union.

What is ironic is all the fuss about Trump “buying Greenland” from the same people who are willing to sell UK sovereignty down the river at the first opportunity. Nobody mentions that Greenland famously left the EEC and told them where to stick their membership over the common fisheries policy.
