Sunday

10.00am I persuaded Jas to come to church with me to thank God for making Dad have his shoes blown off and also for giving me a Sex God as a plaything.

When I got to Jas's house she was sitting on her wall in the shortest skirt known to humanity. She leaped off the wall. Her skirt was about four centimeters long.

I said,"Is it a long time since you went to church, Jas?" and she said,"It's OK, I'm wearing really big knickers."
