  1. El Kid Says:

    Definitely not cracking up?

  2. Lisa Says:

    I’ve got crack but I’m not a Cracker?

    This could go on all day.

  3. Eoin Says:

    I’ve got milk but I’m not a milkman? No… on second thoughts its got to be a total non-sequitor.

    (Inspired obviously by that Killers song, which I just heard in a shop…)

  4. han shan Says:

    I’m butch but i’m not a butcher

  5. Eoin Says:

    Holy shit, that’s pretty damn quick off the mark Han Shan

  6. El Kid Says:

    I’ve got prawns but I’m not a pawnbroker..(no that’s shit isn’t it?)

  7. Eoin Says:

    I’ve got pasta but I’m not a pastor

  8. Colin Says:

    I’ve got Wood, but I’m not Woods, Tiger.

    (Topical stretch)

  9. Fat Tony Says:

    I’ve got libraries but I’m not a librarian??

  10. Eoin Says:

    @ Colin – I’ll give you topical. And stretch. But beyond that I’m not so sure…

    @ Fat Tony – Good but they gotta be completely unrelated if possible. Libraries, librarians? Hmmm…

  11. Lisa Says:

    I’ve got books but I’m not a bookie.

  12. Eoin Says:

    @ Lisa – I’m not discounting the possibility that you might have done other things in the time in between, but still… That took two hours.

    What’s the bets I can come up with one in less than a minute? I’m soooo sad. Still check the time stamp and….

  13. Colin Says:

    @Eoin – Okay, Round 2, ya bastich!

    I’ve got sense but I’m not a censor.

  14. Eoin Says:

    I’ve got a home but I’m not a homeopath

  15. Eoin Says:

    I’ve got columns but I’m not a columnist

  16. Colin Says:

    I’ve got a butt but I’m no Butler.


  17. Eoin Says:

    I’ll give you that one CK…

  18. Lisa Says:

    I’m going to veto the columns-but-not-a-columnist thing on the grounds that the two are related.

    I’ve got arms but I’m not an army – HA! Also fits in with the original song.

  19. Eoin Says:

    No, I meant I’ve got columns on the front of my house but I don’t have any newspaper columns.

    Also Lisa, with your adrenalin junkie lifestyle, you do technically constitute an army of one so. So again sorry.

    @ Steo – this also is good

    @ Lisa – you’re going to need about a year in Winter Sports Anonymous before you’re able to readjust to Irish society…!

    Okay, favourites are

    1. Golden Graham’s “I’ve Got a Crypt But I’m Not a Cryptographer” (wtf!)
