It takes a genius to make people laugh

The full quote from Stephen King: "Any fool with steady hands and a working set of lungs can build up a house of cards and then blow it down, but it takes a genius to make people laugh."


Sue Perkins, therefore, is a genius.

I hardly expect, when taking the free newspaper from Waitrose supermarket (solely for the purpose of puppy wee-upon material) to be rendered helpless, N.B. before the puppy wee, by an article about quinoa.


"What do you serve it with?
Mild embarrassment. 
How do you pronounce it? 
Quietly, else people will find you unbearably bourgeois.
Technically, it's pronounced keen-wah, from the Peruvian meaning 'over-priced.'"

Oh, it's no good. It's not available online. I'll just have to scan and post...


Thank you, Sue Perkins - and Waitrose (other supermarkets are available when you're feeling skint)
