“Dave, it’s here! The annual fruitcake from Aunt Mable. Who should we pass it to?”

“Hmm. We’ve been fishing the newspaper out of puddles for months.”

“So, not the mechanic.”

“Or my proctologist.”


Exactly 33 words for this week’s Trifecta challenge: Charles Dickens, in A Christmas Carol, wrote “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humour.” We are giving you exactly 33 words to make us laugh out loud and spread some festive cheer.

    This made me chuckle. I don’t know who they can pass it on to without it biting them in the end…
