James Blick assistant editor Philip McIvor designer Patrick Howarth writer Jemima Brown writer Christine Saunders writer Nick Hargreaves writer Contributors The bear A woman is walking down the street when she notices a funeral procession. There’s a gigantic bear on a lead walking behind a hearse. And behind the bear, there’s the widow and a long line of mourners. “What happened?” the woman asks the widow. “The bear bit my husband and he died of fright,” the widow explains. “Oh, I’m so sorry,” the woman says. “Oh, it’s all right. There was a clause in my husband’s life insurance policy that gave me an extra £100,000 because he was killed by a wild animal.” “Oh, right, erm, could I borrow the bear?” the woman asks, thinking quickly. And the widow points behind her and says, “You’ll have to join the queue!” The art gallery A very posh man is walking around an art gallery when he stops by an exhibit. “I suppose this picture of a hideous monster is what you call modern art,” he says very pompously to a museum employee. “No, sir,” replies the employee, “That’s what’s commonly known as a mirror.” GLOSSARY to feel funny exp to feel a bit ill.
