I’m sure the brains here can solve this one but I can’t.
A thread started elsewhere by Orkney Library has photos of books on the theme of ‘Elf on a Shelf’ (don’t ask why, I dunno).
and loads more, but this one has me stumped. What the hell is it?
I cannot brain: I has the dumbs. Sorry.
I don’t get any of them. What is “Elf on a Shelf”?
Please don’t be sorry, I’m very relieved that I have company in the dumbdrums.
I’m not sure where it came from, it’s just A Thing for some reason.
So, Plath in the Bath, Knight on the Wright, Twain on a Drain etc…
But I can’t do it with the last one!
An abomination. Usually on ‘the’ shelf. Plenty of jeremaiads about the creepy little sod on mumsnet.
Anne on the can? (They didn’t think that through, did they?)
Oh, could be I suppose. I which case I just didn’t get it cos it’s so blasted weak. Huh!
I then went away to set up Plath in an Oven, but we don’t have any books here with her name on the cover.
In one way, that is a Great Pity.
I am slightly surprised that I don’t have Ariel somewhere; I had to buy it at one point.
Only I am a bit of a peasant, and much preferred Stevie Smith and Charles Causley.
Apparently this one’s been doing the rounds a fair bit:
Quite right too.
‘Two ethnologists up with the Sioux…’
Health warning prior to viewing photos of a clown in a punt
Slightly off-topic but: I presume you know why the pre-Euro Irish currency is known as the “punt”? … because it rhymes with “banker” …
In Ireland, can you wank with the Batnest? It’s a step up from barking with Banclays.
The Wetmonster is purely Notional. And if you don’t believe me, ask Norman Greenfly…
Beans on the table
I am flummoxed by the spy catcher one
Knight on Wright? (none of it was wot you might call sophisticated, after all)
