Oysters, in the market in Sommieres, are sooo cheap (four euros a dozen for the big ones). I've tried them in the past but I can't see the attraction.

'I stopped eating snot when I was two,' is my standard reply to anyone who offers me one.

Anyway, Jan was sitting next to a female friend, G, at the market on Saturday and G was eating oysters. They were whispering in an animated way when they both burst out laughing and couldn't stop.

I asked what was funny and Jan said, 'oh, just girly stuff.'

Being a nosey sod I asked her again later. It transpired that Jan, who has never eaten an oyster, because she just doesn't fancy them, had asked G if the rumour that oysters are an aphrodisiac is true.

Quick as flash, G glanced up at her husband, who was also eating oysters and said, 'God I hope not.'

Why do women find this sort of stuff so funny?
