Incompetently drawn hand-made Fathers Day card depicting some sort of blue square holding hands with larger green shape (possibly car?). Message inside reads 'Please Love Me Daddy from Josie' but spelt wrong. £offers. Unwanted Gift. Call Mr Hollyhock on 01999 482762 ..... The saga continues in the classifieds of Britains favourite local paper, The Framley Examiner

If you've seen it before, apologies, otherwise that's Friday taken care of.

No! Here's a cute little gopher game to be going on with. I think I have seen the Framley Examiner on MetaFilter before, but, if I did, I'd say it was about due for a revival anyway.[I loved the Matsui digital nappies, with instant replay, for £300]

I can't bear more than five minutes or so of the Examiner at one sitting. After that, my face begins to hurt from giggling so hard.

I like this one:

"MY EX-WIFE'S NEW MAN'S MOBILE NUMBER IS 0999 766 533. Call it anytime between 1:00 AM and 4:20 AM and ask for Mr. C*nt. That's 0999 766 533 and "Mr. C*nt."

As humorous as these are, I'm more amazed that any paper is being photo'd and presented as an online version.

Then again, my employer has actually paid for an online phonebook which is simply images of every page in our dead tree phone book has including the yellow pages, not even properly searchable.

The vaginal swing ball was interesting. It "stimulates and bruises". That made my day.

This page requires more study than my patience normally allows. But it is hilarious.
