My Bottom Did A Burp In ClassMy Bottom Did A Burp In Class

Everyone experiences an unexpected bottom burp at some point or another. Grown ups will tell you that they don’t, but we totally know that they do. All of them. Even the Prime Minister. Even the Queen (except that one of her servants usually does hers for her). The inescapable truth is that they sneak out, sometimes without us even knowing – and that’s something we’ve all got in common. Poet Paul Jenkins knows this, so insists on talking about it in public. And in rhyme too. We saw this last year and laughed a lot – read the Little Vikings review here. 21st July 2019, 10am and 12 noon.
