French quip was funniest moment
Neil Galleymore's review of The Chuckle Brothers (Mercury, February 19) was accurate in stating "they are very funny" but the funniest moment was during an on-stage competition featuring four children from the audience.
A six-year-old girl was asked by Paul: "What's the capital of France?"
The girl replied: "F."
Paul repeated the question only to receive the same answer.

Prompted by somebody in the front row, Paul finally saw the logic.
As they say, never work with children.
Stewart Allardyce, Aylestone.
I know what Mrs Taylor, of Netherhall, was going through concerning the council ("MP to sell clothes in bid to help Peggy, 83", Mercury, February 4).
I went through the same saga concerning a stairlift. My husband was in hospital with a terminal illness in 2008. The doctors said he couldn't come home without a stairlift and told the council to ring me.
I spoke to the council in August 2008. They said he had to have another money assessment, but this did not happen until October 2008.
In the end, I paid £1,800 myself. Afterwards, I rang them and they said I couldn't have any help because I did it without permission.
Sadly, my husband passed away in April 2009. I was absolutely disgusted. I worked all my life, had never been on the dole or claimed anything and that's how they treated me.
Mrs V Adams, Newfoundpool.
I was delighted to read two articles in the Mercury (February 13) about Home-Start. It is an incredible charity which supports families in their homes.
Last year, the Leicester scheme was in danger of having its funding withdrawn, but Leicester City Council had a change of heart.
Margaret Harrison is the founder of the scheme, and this year is its 40th birthday. I have been a volunteer for 13 years (including 10 as a trustee).
But there are an awful lot of people who have never heard of it, let alone realise the good it does. It's a pity it doesn't get the publicity that a lot of other charities attract.
Edna Smith, Aylestone.
