Tuk Tuk spotted in London
« on: September 28, 2011, 08:34:19 pm »
Northbound on Faringdon Road at about 9.15 pm. Squeak and I were returning shattered from the National Drum Fair in Brum. I think it might have been an Empolino, probably greyish in colour.

If homeless, a Trampolini, but of course on the return trip you were making a Timpolini. I will beat it now.

I thought Trampolini were for bouncing on.

I'd rather bounce on Gina Lollabrigida!

She has a name all musicians love: if you are struggling to play a piece of music (like some Greek dance music or Dave Brubeck Quartet's "Unsquare Dance") with 7 beats to the bar, her name repeated again and again gives the perfect 7 beat rhythm!

What do you call a man with a wooden head?
Edward

What do you call a man with 3 wooden heads/
Edward Woodward

Would you know anyone with 4 wooden heads?
No, but Edward Woodward would

Why would Edward Woodward know someone with 5 wooden heads?
Well, Edward Woodward would, wouldn't he?!

(The last 2 are my additions)

I dunno, start a thread about Tuk Tuks and it all goes adrift!

Now add the fact the Edward Woodward had a Borgward called Edward not a Wartburg called Woodward and you really do get a rim rippler of a bath night!
