Merseyrail are offering Christmas shoppers the chance to travel on their trains for just 50p return every Thursday evening from now until Christmas.

Not particularly interesting for me as I have a monthly season ticket anyway. But it does give me the opportunity to recite my favourite public transport joke (and I have many to choose from, believe me):-

Psychiatrists say men choose a vehicle to compensate for a perceived inadequacy in their penis. Well, my transport of choice is Merseyrail: it’s the size of a county and comes every 15 minutes.

Of course, if I take that metaphor to its logical conclusion, it means my penis is less comfortable to sit on, takes slightly longer to get to the end with frequent stops and is less intensively-worked at night. Then on Sundays my penis might be replaced by a bus for part of its length.

And in the evenings there’s always two or three scally kids inside causing trouble, but we won’t go into that.

    You also get a 250 pound fine if you pull the cord when you shouldn’t 🙂
