LETTERS: Reader sees few friends and even fewer laughs

FRIENDSHIP and humour are in very short supply these days.

What is real friendship?

By friendship I don't mean fair-weather friends - you know the ones that suddenly disappear when you hit a rough patch.

It has been said that true friends walk in when everybody walks out.

A friend is there for the good, the bad and the ugly, and accepts you the way you are.

As the old sages would say: "Better a friend who is close than a brother who is far".

Humour - not smut or bawdy jokes - is something like QT editor Peter Chapman occasionally puts forward in his editor's note.

Friendship and humour are definitely in very short supply at the moment.
