I can't believe what I have just heard laugh
Watching the Sheffield Wednesday v Sunderland playoff game and the other half says.............
"Where is Sheffield Wednesday?........Is it Birmingham way ?"
I replied "The clue is in the first word" wobble
Her face was a picture.

I was walking to the train station in Manchester with SWMBO, when I realised she had stopped for some reason. I looked behind and she was taking a photo of Dale Street. I asked what she was doing and she told me she wanted a picture of the shop sign...



"Which one?" I asked.

"That one there... They sell party supplies... (hesitates as she pronounces it) Is it...'Olum Kawa'?"

Don't get this one. How is it your fault if the guy turns up as arranged?
Because it just is.
Its his fault for not arranging for it to happen by magic.

Go with pointing and laughing. It's an oldie but a goodie.

It took me several minutes to stop laughing. I still don't know if she was being serious.

Just sat with a bag of wine gums and ask the wife if she wants a champagne….

Wife: we haven’t got any
Me: it’s wine gums, this one is champagne
Wife: fk off
Me: is says it on the top
Wife: fk off it doesn’t
Me: it does look
Wife: what? No? You’re having me on
Me: they all have names of wines on them, that’s why they’re called wine gums
Wife: your taking the piss
Me: this one says claret
Me: this one says burgundy
Wife: I don’t believe you

34 years old and didn’t realise wine gums had wine names on them!

Why did you all think they were called “Wine Gums” then?

Just a name of a chewy kids sweet made with god knows what.
However to clarify I didn’t know the supposed flavour was on each one. Maybe because i haven’t had any since I became an adult many years ago

Has anyone got a wine gum to hand to check we’re not having our leg pulled? They’re pretty small and squishy, I wouldn’t have thought you could have spelt ‘champagne’ out on one. I’m going to SainsburysWaitrose this afternoon, may have to check…

They used to say 'madeira', 'sherry' and 'brandy' and the like. But then I became a grown-up and stopped eating them, so I don't know anymore.

Life's too short to give up eating wine gums.

I'm 60 and love them, but only proper yorkshire Lion brand ones, though they're not as good as they used to be before all the good flavourings and additives were banned.
