While listening to Sky news coverage of the Italian liner disaster, I heard the following captivating commentary: “lying on her side with a gash the size of a tennis court clearly on view.” I said "what a woman!” which caused Mrs. FR to hurl something blunt at me. Still hurts.

I was sensible enough to chuckle to myself and say nowt to Mrs Scroat on this one.
Laughed out loud about the captain "falling into a lifeboat" though. Must be a sub there somewhere.
A sub? I’ll bet it’s those bloody Germans.
As for tripped and fell into a lifeboat, that’s on a par with ‘the patient tripped while getting out of the bath and fell onto a carrot which somehow managed to get lodged in his arse’.
Actually it was a parsnip, and I'll have you know I'm still smarting from the issue.
Duke, if there’s issue it can’t have been a parsnip.
i think it is elitist to refer to things 'the size of a tennis court'-how long is it since most of us have been on a tennis court?
i know paper sizes are relative to eachother, eg a4 x 2 = a3 etc, so i guess 2 double decker buses=one tennis court; 2 tennis courts=1 football pitch; 2 football pitches=area the size of wales; 2 wales=area size of brazil.
makes sense now
Didn't he land on top of his 1st mate? Probably his only mate now.
