Small giggle . . .

A sticker, spotted on the rear window of a fairly expensive ute:

But you can't race a house

That tickled me :-D I like jokes where the context isn't obvious and has to be constructed by the reader/viewer. I think that's why I like Terry Pratchett's books so much - a lot of the jokes are very subtle plays on words or cultural references, and you have to be switched on all of the time so that you don't miss them.

I've been reading and re-reading Discworld books for the last 10 years, and there's still the odd joke I discover for the first time.

I just got an email from someone who has a room I might be interested in - it's about halfway between work and uni, and in a fairly nice area, but that's all I know so far (the girl was hesitant about whether I'd be interested as I'd specified Northern Suburbs and 
this place is in the Inner South). Fingers crossed!
