If you want headway when going down, try around the back.

Yes. Sheep on a slope are quite pleasant.

Please to keep head while losing headway

I wonder if the Chinese “working girls”, use the wall as a prop for their trade.

After all. At St Kilda one year, the girls were entertaining their clients in the lower stairwell of all the high-rise Motels. One had to go to the ground floor, out into the street, and round to the carpark, to get one’s car. Failing that you had to wait until they had finished. 😮

Excessive speed will cause your left leg to fall off, just above the knee.

Front the Slope, China’s answer to Attila the Hun.

Be careful not to trip over lost headway. People should be more careful where they lose it!

If your lady loses headway, it is probably due to your not doing enough to entertain her, in return.

Speaking of heads.

This bloke had his head cut off by the guillotine. Instead of falling into the basket, his head hits the edge and falls onto the platform.

It rolls across the platform and into the crowd. The crowd parts, and the head keeps rolling across the ground, and down the bank of a nearby creek.

It finally stops, right on the water’s edge, and says: “F—! Nearly got drowned too.”

“Front the slope, please lose headway.”

Does this mean: When in China walk down hills backwards?

The Barbarians were kept out of China because they could not read and understand the sign on the Great Wall.

You put your right foot in
You take your right foot out
You put your right foot in
And you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey
And you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about

Really! That’s what its all about. Finally, the meaning of life.

Frank Burns beat me to it!! I was going to say the SAME thing (“Keep on Truckin”)! Ahhh…the late 60’s…((sigh))…………..
(and I mean the 1960’s, not MY late-60s. Big difference.) ;-}

BTW, seen Hawkeye lately, or Hot Lips?
