The son of Winston Churchill’s dentist is auctioning off the hero’s dentures, revealing a cunning detail of how Churchill coped with difficult situations:
“Churchill used to flick out his dentures when he was angry and throw them across the room,” said Mr Cudlipp.
“My father used to say he could tell how the war was going by how far they flew.”

At the Waterstones bookstore in Charing Cross, a small elderly lady squeezes into the customer toilet. Before closing the door, she turns to my mom, who was waiting in line behind her, and whispers:
“I won’t lock the door. I suffer from claustrophobia.”
“Don’t worry,” replied my mom. “I’ll make sure no one comes in. I understand. I’m a psychologist.”
“Well, the funny thing is” the lady replied, “I’m a psychologist too but it’s always easier helping other people.”
