Daytime Charity Ad's.

One of the most depressing things about being 'between jobs' isn't the lack of money, it isn't even the long hours we have to put in doing nowt.
To bring a little relief from the boredem we can always turn on the telly and watch a B&W WWII film on one of the many channels freeview has to offer, but then if we do that we are constantly bombarded about the plight of the snow leapoard, the cruelty people all over the world commit to donkeys, the poor little mite that is starving to death somewhere in Africa because the crops have failed because Daddy is of fighting a Civil War somewhere. We also have on our conscience the Cancer research that needs to be done to save the Nation, Oh and lets not forget those wonderful Macmillan Nurses.

All of the above and so many more are worthy causes all hoping we will go into overdraft mode to support them.

Well, for those of you with busy lives that are fortunate enough to be busy during the day here's your chance to join in:-

This is an appeal for Less, Less is on the dole, it isn't his choice. Less and many others like him have been neglected throughout their lives by a variety of Governments. The reason for this is it's easier to make scapegoats out of the unemployed than it is to invest in real jobs.
We all know we can't find Less a job there aren't any out there, but if we all just paid 3.00 a month to him, (or indeed just a one off payment of any amount you can afford) we can raise his financial position so that he no longer appears in the Unemployment statistics, Less is too proud to ask you himself but with your generosity you can all make an old man with no future prospects in the job market extremely happy.
One day you too could be forced into a position where afternoon T.V. may seem to be all that there is, we hope this doesn't happen before senility hits thus making such living more bearable.


Remember, give a man a pint and he will still have to go home early, give him enough to buy a brewery and he can stay out watching Sky Sports.

Thank you.

(Less is at the moment sponsored by the Government but with your help could once again enjoy FREEDOM).

Nearly.

I was almost moved to get out my peggy purse.

Have you no photographs, looking doe-eyed, or even rubbing your belly, as if in hunger?

Black and white ones, and I feel the money's as good as your's, if you just up your appeal's appeal slightly.

If you can't successfully compete with Barnardo's, I'll probably just send off for another of Parky's guaranteed savings plan, so I can get another free pen.

I once sent 3.00 to Barnado's, a week later a knock came on my door and there was this sweet little orphan child with a label attached through his holey T-shirt, It read, "If you think you can feed him on 3.00 a month he's yours!".

Luckily li'l Royski was worth nearly every penny of that three quid.

Some of Thora Hird's greatest work used to be shown in the afternoons.

No once since has rode a Stannah Stairlift quite like Dame Thora.

Or indeed sat in a dolly bath, with a little door in the side, for ease of access.

Thank goodness maths isn't your strong point, I think you would be quite shocked if you knew the real total.

By the way, if you have a good accountant he'll be writing it off against your tax.

I wasn't sure, but fortunately I wasn't searched, because the package slipped out and ended up in my underpants!

The bulge you saw wasn't the package, that damned thing acted like a suppository packed with senna pods!

Re: Daytime Charity Ad's.

I only work 3 nights per week so in theory have almost as much time as somebody who is unemployed to turn on the idiot box and be exposed to this heart-wrenching stuff.
Fortunately, I don't. I hardly ever put the TV on unless somebody else is around,even if I'm on the net (such as now!) I sometimes even forget it's there.
Of these ads, these charities may benefit a lot from our donations but I always want to know exactly where my money is going?
The animal ones get me more than anything. The starving children ones send me on a rant about third world debt, whilst waving a packet of durex at the TV...I watch stuff online a lot, can PM you some sites if youlike

Don't bother, sending any sites, I hardly ever watch daytime T.V., this thread is in anything goes, it should only be read if you have the slightest inkling of a sense of humour, which you obviously haven't. (serious stuff goes almost anywhere else).
