The funniest film I’ve ever seen

​I remember the first film that made me laugh out loud (before LOL had even been invented) was AIRPLANE. So we’ll go with that.​

The funniest joke I’ve ever heard

It’s tricky, it’s one of several, and they are all mine.​

The funniest word

​Knackered.​ Ironically I’m never tired of hearing it.

The funniest book I’ve ever read

​Well, others say it The Girl From The Discotheque https://www.amazon.co.uk/GIRL-DISCOTHEQUE-Bennett-Arron-ebook/dp/B00SRALZCM But for me, probably The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy​

The funniest item of clothing I’ve ever owned

​A thing for when I did ballet. Let’s leave it there…..​

The funniest TV show I’ve ever seen

​Fawlty Towers​

The funniest hairstyle I’ve ever had

​The 80’s ponytail – which I kept just after it stopped being fashionable​

The funniest number

​68, because you know what’s coming next.​

The funniest person I’ve ever met

​My dad​

The funniest country

​Wales – because the people are funny, in a good way.​

The funniest politician

​George Galloway. Here’s a man who led a party called Respect yet dressed in lycra, pretended he was a cat and licked ‘Milk’ from a woman’s hand on live TV. RESPECT.​

The funniest city in the world

​Haifa, because it starts with Ha​

The funniest language

​Hawaiin – same reason​

The funniest  song

​”Ça Plane Pour Moi” by Plastic Bertrand. And I know all the words
