Q. and Answer

Maxine says
"If you're not supposed to stick Q-tips in your ears what the hell are they for?"



Oh Maxine! How indelicate! You've really made me blush!
When it comes to topics such as these I think you ought to hush!
What goes on in the bathroom is always between four walls.
I don't want to be pictured standing in my 'smalls'!
Or even, heaven help us, in just my aged skin
Fiddling about with Q-tips, twiddling them in!
Let's pretend they're made for babies, to clean their little noses!
They're certainly designed for that, or that's what one supposes!
So just picture a gurgling baby attractively in the nude!
Any other possibility is just too awfully rude!


Most of the dust around your house is made of cast-off skin!
Pearls will melt in vinegar, so never drop them  in!
Donkeys kill more people than crashes on the road.
Chewing-gum was first to have the well-known trade bar-code.
Venus rotates clockwise, the only planet that does.
Apples in the morning are better than a caffeine buzz.
A duck's quack doesn't echo and no-one quite knows why.
Walt Disney was afraid of mice (what a nervous guy!)
You burn more calories asleep than watching your TV.
If you want to know important things always apply to me!

Very nice, but I don't think Maxine has boundaries. Expect to be invited into places the rest of us had rather not go.
