Nicknames for plumbers are nice craic


It looks like nothing can cease the flood of nicknames for plumbers (C8). Whereas Peter Miniutti of Ashbury (and a bunch of different bathroom humorists) factors out that “plumbers might not have a nickname however they do have a crack named after them”, Breda Kelly of Drummoyne and Gary Lane of Milperra supply drano. Sue Lewis of Rosedale and Andrew Taubman of Queens Park suppose drippie is a winner and Brett Burns of Curl Curl is a fan of stinkie.

“Mark Greenhill (C8) is certainly the mayor of the Metropolis of Blue Mountains, and thereby head of its Council,” says Adrian Connelly of Springwood. “If he ever needed to alter it to keep away from the majority of the jokes, he might maybe take the Italian kind and be Marco Monteverdi, which appears to me to have a pleasant classical high quality to it.” Pleasure Cooksey of Harrington says “he might hardly be referred to as Mark Blue-Hills. Provided that title he would seem like a fairly inexperienced, radio-listening, outdated girl”. And Katoomba is a good distance from Tanimbla.

Whereas Granny was pondering that Peter Johnson (C8) wanted to brush up on his humour, Maurice Collins of Wollongbar was fast to applaud: “Even the kookaburras burst into laughter with me after I learn Column eight on Tuesday. I’ve an actual battle now to include myself every time I brush my enamel.”

You aren’t alone Georgina Blyth (C8). Peter Wotton of Pyrmont writes: “I recall in North Queensland, a workmate arriving with a badly dented automobile bonnet and a laughable rationalization cow fell on it! It appeared that he was driving via a slicing when a stampeding cow did really run over the sting and land on his automobile.”

“A chap was so in love along with his spouse, that for her he climbed the best mountain, swam the widest river and sailed the seven seas (C8),” says Michael Payne of West Pymble. “She divorced him for by no means being at house.”
