@BTF...you've invented a whole new genre, 'bad week, worse week'. perfect for Brexit jokes i reckon?

I think they actually do bad week/worse week as a variation sometimes. So they could still use the joke!

Nine gags of varying quality sent in. On formatting - mine often ends up all over the shop when I do it from home rather than at work.

I've now taken to cutting and pasting the one-liners into the email too just in case the RTF is completely unreadable by the time it gets to NJ!

Thanks Danno and Auditchris. Shame I did not put bad week..worse week as I might have looked like I knew what I was doing rather than otherwise! Still maybe they will feel sorry for me...

I've actually done two bad / worse weeks this week. Tried something a bit different with one of them as well by making both statements about the same person.

I missed episode 1 because I didn't know it was on
and have struggled with filling the one liner quota each week since
I'm going to blame the news for not being very good

Quite disappointed this week. One liners weren't my best but was really happy with the sketches.

Hopefully there's some more winners who just haven't checked email yet.

Good work Sausage!

I had high hopes this week but it looks as though I was way off the mark :(
