2. "My therapist told me, 'A problem shared, is a hundred quid'." - Ivor Dembina

3. "Me and my ex were into role play. I'd pretend to be James Bond and she's pretend she still loved me." - Tom Mayhew

4. "The roman emperor's wife hates playing hide and seek because wherever she goes Julius Caesar." - Adele Cliff

5. "Marvin Gaye used to keep a sheep in my vineyard. He'd herd it through the grapevine." - Leo Kearse

6. "Getting a caesarian is dangerous in Russia. If they open you up and find a little girl, they open her up to see if there's another." - Ben Clover

7. "My grandparents were married for forty years, but everything took longer back then." - Will Mars

8. "I think Chewbacca is French because he understands English but refuses to speak it." - Sameer Katz

10. "People say zoos are inhumane. But that's because they're for animals." - Sameer Katz

The winner was decided on Saturday (21st August) by a man called Dave, who Mars found on the Royal Mile...
