Tell us a secret

This isn’t really a secret but………… I used to work in forensic science and once had to book in a human head and a pair of feet (not attached to the rest of the body) brought in from a crime scene (sorry if that’s too gruesome for the Chapter audience!).

Tell us a joke

Two teddy bears in the airing cupboard, which one is in the army?  The one on the tank.
