Lets see who can jump off of the highest building without a parachute and live to brag about it.


An unlikely advertisement for a babysitter...

Strict disciplinarian with attitude required to control - and if necessary subdue - three boisterous male triplets with  ADHD  and the table manners of lions around a fresh kill.

Mary Poppins need not apply.

An unlikely reply to the above advert.

In replly to your advertisement I have an interest in the position. I am an excellent nanny with a backgound in zookeeping.  As you can see I have a history of dealing with more than one creature at a time so three little brats shouldn't be much of a challenge.  You said something about them having ADHD, aren't they from Australia?  Feel free to contact me athe following..... 8)



An unlikely reply to the reply above.

Another, smaller, apron.

An unlikely thing to find in the pocket of the apron you found in you pocket...

A tiny gypsy named John writing the copy for a Gillette ad campaign.

An unlikely thing for John to be sitting on.

Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses, translated into Serbian.

An unlikely response from God upon realising the book wasn't  - as he'd requested - translated into broad Yorkshire dialect.

Perkins, give Satan an ring and ask him if he'd like to join me for cocktails and poetry tomorrow evening at half past six. Oh, and tell him to floss before he comes up.

An unlikely outfit that Satan wears to God's soiree.

A Saints (Southampton) football strip and two mini haloes made from LEDs, one orbiting each horn.

Unlikely reaction from Saint Peter when Satan arrives at the Pearly gates dressed this

"Saints?! I thought you were a Celtic fan."

An unlikely transition from this scene to a Chinese restaurant.

Satan steps through the pearly gates and all goes black for a brief second, he finds himself face to face with God as he finished his order, ",...oh, and a pu pu platter for my friend here (leans over and whispers to the waitress) he has this thing about fire." 8)



Unlikely contest between th two in the restaurant.

The big fella downed his rice wine in one and licked his lips. "Right then Nick, how about another game of Christians v Muslims? You can be white this time."

Satan agrees, but insists on an unlikely condition.
