And witticisms:

“The difficulty may be that we have never discovered a way to communicate with the female mind.

If it is done in the right way, you might get something out of it.”

- Richard Feynman

"I miss my wife's cooking - as often as I can."

       A rabbi, a priest, and a minister are discussing when life begins.
       The priest says: “In our religion, life begins at conception.”
       The minister says: “We disagree. We believe that life begins when the fetus is viable away from the mother’s womb.”
       The rabbi responds: “You’re both wrong. In our religion, life begins when the kids graduate college and the dog dies.”

Seems that humour has not yet reached contagion level yet. What about cross-border insults?

Say what you like about Margaret Thatcher but without her we wouldn’t have Alternative Comedy.

She got a new type of compass developed for the Navy with "North" removed.

Weak.

A simple “And vice versa” would have been better. ISM would have got that one!

I'd say Meg inspired a lot of alternative lifestyle in this society. But she saved our Falklands:

If I know the Argies then deep fried Penguin entrails could have been v popular in the early ‘80s.

The 'vice versa' is a non-sequitor

I would think that Paul should love Thatcher - shouldn't you? Isn't the Conservatives' current popularity in a (large?) part due to the privatisation and the give-away of council houses? She conceived a large class of affluent rightists (everybody votes with their wallet, the difference is they vote left if it's empty and right if it's fat). Just my half-baked theory.
