Embedded text or transcriptMoustache Disarmament : A meeting was called to discuss last week's order to a Coldstream Guardsman to shave his moustache. Col. Blimp was for battleships, and Lord Peel insisted on a 2-power standard. Lord Dawson and Neville Chamberlain favoured destoyers, but Harry Tate and Charles Laughton refused to cut down their airplane carriers. Pub Pedal : Ye Pig and Whistle - "Is the Home Secretary aware that a man with a bicycle could take part in closing-time ceremonies in 3 different licensing divisions on the same evening?" asks A.P. Herbert. At this point the proceedings became confused. "Hunt the Football" - It is officially stated that if the measures already taken do not fool the Football pools, the League has decided next week to hide the ball. Spanish Prisoners Released : Confidence men confer - Their best lay having gone phut, a return to the gold-brick standard seems imminent. Boar-Hunt Diplomacy : Goering's favourite practice of meeting General European statesmen in forests to talk politics and hunt boars is discontinued for a time. Last week a short-sighted statesman mistook Goering for the boar. Twostep by Blimp : Gad, sir, Lord Beaverbrook is right. The Chinese should send a force at once to restore order in Japan.
