Young, Dumb and…

For anti-lockdowners desirous/

Of trysts with like-minded admirers,/

The Toadmeister’s site/

Lets folks on the right/

In literal terms, fuck the virus.///

Lucky Lukashenko

A long-serving leader from Minsk
Says everyone voted him insk,
But carting off votes
Down ladders, one notes,
Is not a great way to convinsk.

Muffed Translation

Two firms have said sorry for boobs
That must be the work of right noobs,
Or some PR guru
Who said huruhuru
Meant feather in Maori (it’s pubes).

Naturist v Nature

A nudist relaxing outdoors
Fell victim to thieves on all fours
And chased, minus clobber,
The bag-snatching robber,
Exposing the cheek of the boars.

What’s Come Over Hampshire?

In Hampshire a firefighting force
Looked into a gas escape’s source
And so can confirm
It comes from the sperm,
That’s cryopreserved, of a horse.

Leavers of Power

New gongs reward those who’d campaign
For Britain to leave, not remain:
Claire Fox and Kate Hoey,
And Botham, althoey
Is happily living in Spain.

POTUS v Voters

Proposals from President Trump
It may be required to bump
November’s election
Could have a connection
With POTUS’s piss-poor poll slump.
