More Puerile Innuendo

Seen today on Freecycle: one crinkly fun tunnel, hardly used.

(I'm sorry about this. Normal service will be resumed very shortly.)

No. I really couldn't possibly comment.

Vicus Scurra said...

Why are you apologising? Is it yours?

Marsha Klein said...

Hardly used? That's so sad - no wonder it's crinkly.

Karen's Mouth said...

Sometimes on freecycle you can spot posters who really should get together. This one might require a whole other website.

Valerie said...

I'm with Marsha — this is terribly poignant.

My former boyfriend used to feel sorry for socks that came out of the wash without their mates, too...

patroclus said...

It's actually even more poignant than you might think, because the crinkly fun tunnel apparently belonged to a beloved cat called Bilbo, who is now sadly deceased.

It's terribly sad, really.

Dave said...

I trust the cat has been stuffed and mounted.

oyebilly said...

Oh its one of those cat things. I was worried.

John Cowan said...

More likely mounted and stuffed.

Tim Footman said...

Good grief, anyone would think this was a post about an old lady's vagina.

Christopher Campbell-Howes said...

Ah. No word of wrinkly fun tunnels anywhere?

Tim Footman said...

Christopher, when is a crinkle not a wrinkle?

patroclus said...

I know, it's terribly infantile, but I couldn't let a phrase like 'crinkly fun tunnel' go unremarked upon. The 'hardly used' was just the icing on the cake.

we have lots of crinkly (and partially ripped*) fun tunnels in our shed

word veris are truly back on the form of yesteryear

poldsoc = university society for appreciation of the poldark series

Tim: Wrinkly I may be, by Fate's dour hand and snell intent, but crinkly never.

Tim Footman said...

Mick Jagger: These aren't wrinkles, they're laughter lines.

George Melly: Nothing's *that* funny.

Marsha Klein said...

Noel Edmonds had a crinkly bottom...

Poldark...mmmm.

Piebird said...

I note that since Noel Edmonds's Crinkly Bottom was mentioned - more than two days ago - there have been no further comments....

Please tell me I am not the only one to survive that thought?

Ah - the tunnel. How many of us have a mouldy smelling tunnel thingy from IKEA stashed away in the back of the coat cupboard? Mouldy because despite having invested in two tunnels, one for outside, the other for indoors, both have been taken outside at some point and just left in the rain.....
