Attempting One-liners Again

My cousin from Britain wanted the American experience... (I gave her a Twinkie)
Some bloke on Facebook said I was dum and I mailed him a dictionary
I ran out of tissues watching Titanic... (I guess laughter does birth a river)
The Queen went to the loo after a game of poker... (safe to assume that she had a Royal Flush)
A girl whispered seductively "I'll be counting the minutes until you return". The fool pointed out she could use a clock instead.
There's no such thing as a self-centered midget... (how could he ever climb such a high horse?)
I posted a picture of scotch broom and my uncle said "Of gorse it is!"
My cat ran to the river and was never found again... (must have been the cattails)
I never thought I'd stoop to botany jokes, but it's always nice to have a daff

    Well Idaho is a pretty low-population place, I'm not gonna lie. Some of this is actually very true though... My uncle really did say "of gorse it is" after posting a picture of some flowers, I thought were scotch broom... and I really DO have a cousin from Britain.

    Yes and no. The only about my uncle is actually a true story, so I thought I'd add it to the list. And I really do have a cousin from Britain (though I never personally gave her a Twinkie). But yeah... these are from my own imagination...

    I think I'm getting the hang of it more... it's a bit of nonsense, but a fun challenge!
