Hi Folks,

We’re looking forward to the Six Nations this weekend, with three teams still in contention for the crown – Even if England beat Italy, it would still come down to the final match between France and Ireland. Will Ireland claim the crown and a dream career finale for O’Driscoll? Whatever shirt you’ll be wearing, it should be a cracking days rugby. We hope you enjoy our newsletter.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for items you’d like us to include, or any feedback on the newsletter — or our new website — good or otherwise, please email us at:…[email protected]–mil.co.uk.

Listen very Carefully…

Joe wakes up one morning to find a gorilla in his tree.

He looks in the phone book for a gorilla removal service until he finds one.

“Is it a boy or girl Gorilla?” the service guy asks.

“Boy,” is the man’s response. “Oh yeah, I can do it. I’ll be right there.”

An hour later the service guy shows up with a stick, a Chihuahua, a shotgun, and a pair of handcuffs.

He then gives the man some instructions.

“Now, I’m going to climb this tree and poke the gorilla with the stick until he falls. When he does, the trained Chihuahua will bite the gorilla’s testicles off. The gorilla will then cross his hands to protect himself and allow you to put the handcuffs on.”

The man asks, “What do I do with the shotgun?”

If I fall out of the tree before the gorilla, shoot the dog.
