(And this is actually true fact - thanks to The Guardian!!)

The latest iteration of "The Laws of Association Football" runs to a massive 26,868 words.

Even the rule-book for that strange, impenetrable game played by the chasers of eggs can be summed up 22,480.

Hockey can be codified with just 11,408, Darts 4,275, Weightlifting 1,325 (and "Rock Paper Scissors" a mere 62)

But the prize for impenetrable still looks to be held for the foreseeable future by Cricket whose intricacies extend to a massive 34,602 - and that's not including the prefaces and indices that add another 3,000 to that already bloated tome.

So next time we berate the referree/umpire/adjudicator with that fine old chant "You Don't Know What You're Doing"...perhaps this goes a small way to explaining why? 😁

Looking for the video for 'Never Gonna Give You Up' can be something of a rigmarole.

My friend went to America and brought me back some Native American laminate flooring.

It was a lovely Sioux veneer.

I had a dish of calamari in a restaurant the other day.
The waiter did warn me that they were a bit concerned about the quality of the main raw ingredient and offered me a discount.
Nevertheless I ordered and ate it.
It wasn't vey nice I'll admit but I couldn't really complain.
After all, it was only sick squid.

Back in the 60s, on a Tamla Motown tour of the UK Martha Reeves recruited a backing group from the traveller community.

The were billed as Martha Reeves and the Van-dwellers.

I tried to open a haunted theme park in Columbia...

I would have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those Medellín kids.
