‘I went to work on acid last week.’

‘You’re not even six foot and you want me to cry over you?’

‘I’ve never ordered a real cappuccino and I don’t know what one looks like.’

‘Why would you look down the toilet to see if it’s windy?’

‘All men can do is sit on the sofa and eat Crunchy Nut cereal straight from the packet.’

‘The reason there are so few tube lines south of the river is because of the plague.’

‘I’m staying at one of those Mexican B&Bs. What are they called – quesadillas?’

‘You know paracetamol is really MDMA?’

‘I’m going to research it: “bell pepper sex”.’

‘I think it would look really good in a box of lemons.’
