 HOW MANY KILOWATTS TO KILL A WART?

At a recent "​hooley party" held there the Dalai Lama entertained his guests by luring them into this structure, then, relying on the thickness of the concrete walls to drown their screams, he applied high frequency currents to such warts as they possessed, the idea being that fast-growing cells just can't stand high frequency currents, and curl up and die.

 The "Panel of Experts"​ thought up some of the corniest answers bushwalkers have ever heard for the "Any Questions"​ escapade at the Fun and Games night last month. Alan Wilson thought he would craftily stump the Experts when he ventured his trick question, "And what is the Panel'​s opinion of the double sleeping bags now being sold in New Zealand?"​. The Dalai Lama didn't bat an eyelid, didn't even show a trace of embarassment. "This is a bad thing" was the unfaltering reply, "Fancy encouraging all those bludging types who are only too ready and willing to leave their weight at home, knowing there'​ll probably be a spare berth for them when they get out on a trip." The Admiral was much more direct and tried to hoist the engineer with his own petard when he glared at the questioner and scathingly roared "This is just the sort of question that Wilson would ask:" All in all, the Panel squirmed quite nicely out of the trap, thank you, The "Panel of Experts"​ thought up some of the corniest answers bushwalkers have ever heard for the "Any Questions"​ escapade at the Fun and Games night last month.

For what seemed a bargain price they have picked up a tent or rucksack or sleeping bag only to find that under the searching test of hard conditions the article did not measure up to requirements. It is quite a common thing for Walkers to come into Paddy'​s shop bewailing the fact that they have been tempted into buying "​cheap"​ walking gear.
