‘As you get older, you can’t trust farts.’

‘It’s a bit early for crack, isn’t it?’

‘That wasn’t a dad joke. It was a very serious question.’

‘To be honest, mate, what did you expect from a fetish night?’

‘I’m just going to quickly get a picture of the theatre or we’ll forget what we saw.’

‘If I stop eating avocados, my breasts will get smaller.’

‘I was in Gloucestershire… I was fine.’

‘It is a well known fact that vegans taste better.’

‘But if you put salt on a mollusc, surely it feels discomfort?’

‘I’d definitely be fine to eat a pigeon after Brexit. I’d roast it over a fire in the street.’
