    In order

    1. My ex had a similar method for doing the washing. Of course it only applied to her clothes, for mine the solution appeared to be biff them into the traffic and see how they turn out.

    2. It’s against most city by laws to feed parking meters in NZ too. Which has never stopped me (a) wiping the chalk of tyres of total strangers or (b) chucking a 10 cents into the meter in the good ole days. Can’t do it now. Sorry but i’m not getting done for breaking into a car just cos I tried to upgrade the dashboard ticket after you went over on your latte.

    3. Go the white hands!…errr…but isn’t that a tad racist? What about the not so white disable….errrr…naw…never mind!

    4. If identical twins could marry identical twins would we be in Utah? Cos we sure as shit ain’t in Kansas Toto!

    5. I’m taking the razor. No way am I going toe to toe with a fucking beam of light that is fired from a 37 tonne apparatus.

    or religion.”
