Run, John, Run
By Kevin Joslin
Do you like shopping? John does. When Janet and John go to the big department store, Janet says, 'I'm going to have a look around the kitchen department. I'll see you back here in half an hour.' Janet has bought some new kitchen scissors. Janet says, 'Have you been a good boy?' 'Yes,' says John. 'I saw Mrs. Llewellyn. She was complaining that her husband wasn't very well served in the trouser department and said that I looked like a man who knew how to treat a lady properly. After that I saw Mrs. Steward. She said she was always on the lookout for a partner with good ballroom and asked if I'd like to come to her special club and learn how to Mazurka'. Do you know how to get scissors out of plastic packaging in under a second? Janet does. See Janet chase John. Run John, run.During its transmission, 8 million listeners to BBC Radio 2's Wake Up To Wogan were beguiled and bewitched by the naughty but nice adventures of John and his wife Janet. As a favourite segment, the stories moved with Terry Wogan to his Sunday morning show, Weekend Wogan. In the style of children's stories of yesteryear, John gets up to all sorts. Then he tells Janet all about his day, by which time every perfectly innocent big end, back passage and stiff one acquires a whole new meaning. This second instalment promises even more devilish double entendres, with over seventy new stories to tickle your funny bones.
