That's not in the version I was taught.
Some have the last line of the chorus as 'knees, bend, arms stretch, ra ra ra'.
What is the version you know then?

The intruder has been sectioned, rather than hung, drawn and quartered.

Did chuckle at the Guardian's report: "Following a search of the man, a crossbow was recovered".
So they didn't spot the crossbow straight away?...

Could have been in a bag, or a case. If you're carrying an offensive weapon with the intention of causing harm, or fear of harm, to a specific target then you're likely to want it concealed until the appropriate moment - bumbling onto the bus with it tucked under you're arm is likely to give the game away.

The Queen’s doctor told the Queen to stop drinking her bedtime martini for health reasons.

Without the "knees, bend, arms, stretch" bit - but it does go "We all clap hands together"...

That's what @escargot's doctor said, too...

As you recover from Christmas, people are already working feverishly on the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

People in the UK will get a four day bank holiday ( Thursday through Sunday), street parties, Trooping of the Colors, and the one that everyone who lives in Britain will love is that Pubs will be allowed longer night hours.

You can drink the night away.

That's 'colour'. We're English, don't you know?!
Also it's not 'a four day bank holiday' - it's 2 bank holidays before the weekend.
And the pub hours - well technically pubs and clubs (and restaurants with an alcohol licence) can apply for extended hours beyond the usual 11pm with their local councils anyway, and could even get a 24 hour licence in some instances (and of course a lot of 'nightclubs' already have a licence until 2am usually)
The usual 11pm is set to be extended to 1am for those 4 days only, so it's not quite 'drink the night away'.
But pedantry aside.....there will be a few sore heads on the morning of Monday June the 6th. :bthumbup:

He was understood to be the man of 19 held by armed police at Windsor Castle on Christmas Day.

Given this omadhaun's apparent obsession with Star Wars I cannot believe that no-one has followed the - 'well, the fucking force is with you now, isn't it mate' - path.

Come on guys - keep up.
