It just kind of popped out....
One of my ex's had a mum. she was a teacher, and specialised in the teaching of english. One day she was reading a book, and i had just walked in the house, fresh from smoking a joint.

Me: "what are you reading?"
Her: "I'm doing some reasearch for one of my english groups - pronunciation and things"
Me: "How can you teach pronunciation? you're from Birmingham!"

I really don't have anything against people from Birmingham, I just thought it would be a witty thing to say at the time - being stoned and everything....

Lesson to be learned here, kids - don't smoke weed before social situations where you really ought to try and come accross as a nice, sensible choice of boyfriend. In fact don't smoke weed at all - it's very naughty.

Oh yeah, why is it that people insist on having that "all creatures great and small" hymn at funerals? I can be upset as anything, but the second line of the second verse will always make me laugh - "the purple-headed mountain, the river running by..."
