Skimping on the Puns

Both the Daily Mail newspaper and Sky News carry stories about the showing of a recently rediscovered portrait of a young Sean Connery, before his role as James Bond made him famous. Both refer to him as wearing "skimpy trunks" in the picture.
Given Connery's renowned Scottish nationalism, I'm surprised that both organs resisted the temptation to joke about him wearing a jockstrap. Whatever happened to the famous British sense of humour?

Not sure what happened to the British sense of humour, but your reference to the Daily Mail as an 'organ' seems very apt. I suspect I even know which one you meant!

Hi,

Thanks for your comments.

Are you the same "Manila" who contributes to the "Time Has Told Me" blog? That one really covers a lot of the kind of music I like.

Manila said...

Yes, but don't tell anyone! :-)

That was rather flippant of me, sorry. Yes, I sometimes post there. And when people leave interesting comments I like to look at their profile to see what else they're up to. It often leads to interesting blogs, such as yours, which has made me laugh out loud more than once (and God knows, we all need that). Geox also has a good one, here: http://inchoatia.blogspot.com/
I keep saying I'm going to start one myself, but I don't know...I can be a little quick-tempered, and too opinionated for my own good sometimes. It's almost as much fun leaving comments on other people's, especially when you start up a dialogue. Anyway...hello! And thanks for keeping me amused during those long gaps when I can't be bothered to do any work.

I also post quite a few comments on other blogs. Although I rarely write about muic here, most of the blogs I follow regularly are music blogs, plus a few on current affairs. I need to update my list of links here...
