Bit of Christmas fun.

Anyone here sing the praises of that famous Indian restaurant in Ireland?

The Curry of Kildare

Or David Grey's ode to a cyclops.

The one eyed love

I'm sure you can all do better :-D

From Australia, that great feminist anthem, "The Ryebuck Sheila", and
ACDC's rock classic "It's a Long Way to the Shop if You Wanna Sausage Roll".
"The Song of the Vulgar Boatmen", not so much of a pun as perhaps a mondegreen, as that's what I thought I heard it announced as on the wireless when I was a youngster.

"Carmen, Toothy Gordon, moored", a classic from Frank Muir or Denis Norden (can't remember which), from the BBC radio show "My Word". Each week, IIRC, they were given a song title or phrase to explain it's derivation, and I think their take on "Come Into the Garden, Maud" was just so funny....I vaguely recall others, but that one sticks in my mind for some reason.

One of the Dennis Norden/Frak Muir ones was about a new way to do hair styles involving crushed ice instead of the use of a brush made from wool.
"Comb, comb, comb and shake ice at me, down with the old woolen brush!"

Muir and Norden - an impolite Norwegian teddy boy expressing his opinion of alcoholic beverages on a train - Rude Ulf the Ted loathes train beer.

A female journalist fails in her career and goes from a respectable publication to a porn mag and is discovered by a friend - Ah, sweet Miss Terry of Life at Lust I've found you. (Ah sweet mystery of life at last I've found you!)

I `ad that Santa Claus in my cab the other day. `e was dressed up in `is red and white clobber, `is cheeks well rosy and `is nose like a lantern.
I said, " Morning Mr.Cringle, where to then?"
`e said, "Morning Jim, `appy New Year and `eathrow please."
`e then snuggled down in the back and started `umming a familiar tune.
I said, "ere Chris. I know that tune. We used to sing it as kids in our school Christmas party and it`s well known today. "Away in a manger"
`e said, "Nearly Jim. It`s "a Day In La Manga". I`m down there now till next December!!"

Apologies to wild life lovers for the distasteful song title pun "Ninety Nine Dead Baboons".
This should have read "Ninety Nine Red Baboons".
For those who do not know, or do not watch QI, Red Baboons are in fact a species of spider found in Africa.
I wish no harm to any variety of baboon, though I don't think I'd like to find either of them in my bathtub.....
