Q: How many ears has Mr Spock?
A: Three. A left ear, a right ear and a Final Front Ear...
Q: How many ears has Davy Crockett?
A: Three. A left ear, a right ear and a Wild Front Ear...
These cheesy cracks (I won't dignify them with the title jokes) were inspired by a song that I can't get out of my head. It goes "Sa-rah - Sarah Palin. Queen of the Wild Frontier" to the tune of "Davy Crockett".
We're told we haven't seen the last of Palin, and that she'll be back. In days when the world is less and less stable, and we're all faced with annihilation in a variety of ways, this is not a comforting thought.
Surely the US electorate must be starting to realise that being religious, photogenic and a supporter of "the right to bear arms" are unbelievably feeble qualifications for people looking to run their country.
