They Should Have Asked My Husband

Posted this several months ago but I looked it up again this eve as (esp reading about the MW change) in need of a chuckle! So thought I would share again.

Please share anything similarly clever and funny thanks

I adore Pam Ayres. Her autobiography on Audible is an absolute joy.

midclegs Sat 05-Sep-20 23:17:48

Ooh. I must listen to that! Does she narrate?

Yes. It's really very good. I listen to it when I've had a hard day at work on the train home!

LockdownLump Sun 06-Sep-20 01:47:11

Haha. Love it. Hope she named it 'Mansplaining 101'

See this is what I love about FWR! Where else would you get Pam Ayres alongside top feminist analysis and debate smile

I love Pam Ayres ❤️
But I am slightly worried that the person she is describing in this house is,well,me.....
Ably assisted by DS who I have created in my own image...grin

Humour gets us through life. I wish there were some modern day Ayres out there who'd write comedy on GC issues. How fantastic would that be!

Oh she's a joy! Wonderful. If your heart can take it, listen to the Akaroa Cannon.

Problem being of course that any gender critical poet that wants to keep their publisher would either be "an ally" or quickly learn to keep their own council. Even if they kept their publisher there's nowt to stop shop staff starting a campaign and refusing to sell their work.
I heard a new one yesterday on Talkradio when a presenter pointed out Twitter banning people for their opinions was taking away the freedom of speech. The woke ones answer was .....

"Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom to reach."

I had to laugh, I thought it was Peter Kay.😁
