Some of these have been about, some new ones too :D :lmao:

> Hats off to the England cricketers for their achievements in the Ashes
> this summer, which rightly earned Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff BBC Sports

> never shutting up about it makes me proud to be British.
> Ben Hunt
> The government tells us that we are eating too many pies and dying of

> John
> 'Alton Towers - Where the magic never ends', or so the commercial says.
> Imagine my disappointment when it closed at 7.30.
> Colin Hill
> I am married to a Taiwanese lady, and people often ask me if she was a

> She was sent by DHL next day delivery.
> L Palmer, London
> With reference to Mr Palmer's previous letter. I am also married to a
> Taiwanese lady, but nobody ever asks me if she is a mail order bride.
> But perhaps that's because I am also Taiwanese. And we live in Taiwan.
> Lo Chi Chang, Taipei
> The record companies would have us believe that the money made by CD

> P Boddington, Ringway
> Peter Andre might look smug in all his wedding pictures, but I'd just

> P, Leeds
> Did anyone else feel that Mel Gibson's remake of the classic Life of

> Anon
> On the BBC website, I read with interest that some scientists in

> Alan J., London
> Hats off to the American police. They arrive at Michael Jackson's

> T Barnham, London
> How come rap artist Dr. Dre can use the 'N' word on his multi-million

> Reg Ashcroft, Bradford
> Never mind ventriloquists like Keith Harris and Roger DeCourcey. What

> Mike Woods, e-mail
> With reference to that series "Manhunt" where ex-Special Forces

> Shuggie, e-mail
> Hats off to the witty burglars who stole my entire CD collection with

> Chris Scaife, Jesmond
> I see on the news that Lord Hutton says he is "satisfied that David

> Dave Owen, Edinburgh
> I never worry about the destination when I'm going on holiday. My dad

> Stan
> What's all this nonsense about that 66-year-old Romanian woman being

> Christina Martin

> Aardvark Mansell
> When I nipped into a McDonald's to use their toilets the other day, I

> Tommo, Hull
