The missing inch

This began with a news item, via Chuckles:

the missing inch

… to which I replied: ‘As I am in certain places.’

To which there was a certain amount of gay banter and repartee, including haiku:

# Perhaps it shrinks when it’s cold. Send Hugh Grant to investigate.

# I have no doubts that Trump stole the inch in order to prove the greenies global warming data incorrect.

# I always thought it was the Russians who hacked it.

# Chinese chiselling.

# To clarify: the Russian hackers – hired by Trump – stole the inch.

# OTOH the hackers are keeping the snow so that they can cool their vodka: what with global warming the Russians are suffering from a shortage of cold vodka.

To attempt the idiom of Sergeant Schultz: ‘Zose guys, zay are jokers, nein? Za fun vee haf, ho ho.’ Or was that Python?
