Lynne and 'Mantha are out jogging. Lynne tells 'Mantha that she and George went on a midnight ghost hunt. 'Mantha asks where it was and Lynne tells her it was in the old haunted bed spring factory. She adds that they say it's full of things that go boing in the night.

'Mantha feels uncomfortable on this run because her only running outfit is a pale lilac and she has no earrings in that colour. She has a purple pair but she thought they were a little dark so she has opted for a white pair. She's hoping that if she moves fast, the general public won't recognise her obvious fashion faux pas.

George and Lynne went for a midnight ghost hunt at the old haunted bed spring factory. Although 'Mantha has asked where it was, she must have assumed it was going to be in the old haunted bed spring factory. Does this mean there is more than one commonly known haunted place in the Wimbledon area? The haunted dog track? The old haunted bus stop? Castle Aaaarrgghhh? If there are that many haunted places perhaps 'Mantha has been on one herself and wishes to swap notes with Lynne. Just who was most scared? Lynne uses the phrase 'they say' which suggests that her and George didn't encounter any ghosts. Perhaps Castle Aaaarrgghhh would have been a better option.

There is something far more scary than ghosts here though. Lynne and 'Mantha are so engrossed in their conversation that they have completely lost track of their jogging route. They have ended up jogging down the middle lane of a motorway! The only thing that can save their lives is that if they are running in the same direction as the traffic. If that is the case then all that has happened is that they have caused a tailback. Can they not even hear the honking of horns? If they are running into the traffic, there is likely to be rather a nasty accident. Let's just hope they realise where they are before it's too late.

  1. Just what you want when you're nearing the end of an eight mile run - Lynne providing her own feedlines to piss poor jokes yet again.

    Come on 'Mantha, you could do so much better for close friends than Lynne who seems solely interested in a quite frankly unlikely career as a stand up comic.
