Standing in the Pub
Having some banter with some chums, when a fella was spotted in the corner with foreshortened arms...

"That looks grim" says one mate. "Aye" says another, "His Mum probably took Thalidomide when she was pregnant...poor bastard, it must be terrible to be like that"

It was probably not a good idea to say "Don't knock Thalidomide, its a wonder drug if you're shit at knitting sleeves!"

Things were quiet for a while after that...

My mum took thalidomide
but stopped because it didn't agree with her.

I should have posted that in the "Lucky Escapes" QOTW!

I'll avoid a length joke, as nothing is shorter than it should be.

In fact, it IS a wonder drug
Looks like it's effective in all sorts of things - leprosy, cancer, heart disease HIV probably... as long as you're not pregnant, it's great!

You had to go and spoil my run of long place names Scarpe.

*Edit apologies Scarpe I meant SLVA, I have a terrible blindspot for S words and names.

Did you hear the one about the Thalidomde porn star? He's got an arm like a baby's cock.
