More strength needed

Mad magazine has published many books based on the themes covered in its magazine.

One was “Snappy answers to stupid questions.” Here is a brief sample.

What gets me is the slightly mocking tones used when some people ask me about things they may perceive as unusual:

Q. Why is there a towel in your bed?

A. Because I take frequent bed baths.

Do you know about Linus?

Because I’m German.

Q. Why is there a walking stick on the floor of the shower?

A. Doesn’t everyone burst into a song and dance routine whilst bathing?

I dream about being a wet sniper.

So I can swat flies.

Q. Why are there 3 shoes under your bed?

A. My lodger is Long John Silver.

I’ve grown another foot.

I’m minding them for Jake the Peg while he’s serving his jail sentence.


Best wishes, Steve

Questions I’m asked What happend to you then? Do they know what it is yet ? One kind lady at the bus stop after giving me 20 questions …maybe she was a benefits spy…she told me that if I go abroad there’s an injection for people like me…“why don’t I go?” ,she would…" cos you must cost the government a lot in disability benefits"… I smiled sweetly and said I’d give it some thought! People eye Frazer up all the time and say in a patronising voice …“your not blind then? …so what does he do for you?” Frazer gives me the knowing sigh…not this again mum…I I feel like saying he eats and sleeps and poos on his walks … Frazers a massive help but we feel like a zoo exhibit some days. Michelle and Frazer xx

Yes, the forever "what’s happened to you then? ". After a brief reply and explanation as to why I’m in a wheelchair I have then been asked why don’t I get “new knees”! Honestly.
