The EU President
clutched his stomach:
“I need a Brexit.”

And the First Prize goes to

Pedigree dogs.
The day will come
when the breeding
of these deformed,
suffering creatures –
or the act of showing them
for vanity or profit –
will be illegal.
So get ahead
of the moral curve
and boast about that
to your friends.

What are the Chances?

Most cultures were ‘discovered’
by a handful of others
that explored the globe.
Who would deny
such a history of the world
was highly likely?
It’s in the nature of things.
So consider: most inhabited planets
are visited before they visit others.
Indeed, scaling things up,
the odds against our isolation
are astronomical.
