‘My polyamorous friend has a mullet.’

‘It’s like we’re up the paddle, without a creek!’ 

‘I took one look at his triceps and walked out on the date.’

‘That’s what you need to get yourself on telly, a big hat.’

‘The only fish I eat is scampi – I thought it was chicken until I was 18.’

‘This place never has any chocolate pudding, man. So depressing.’

‘For years, mum wanted me to have an anorak.’

‘I can feel my eggs leaving my body.’

‘I’ve got a lot to do today, but I can’t do any of it until I’ve done it.’
