Snoozy The Snoozing Snooker Player

Snoozy the Snoozing Snooker Player found television really quite boring, so he spent all day in bed, snoring. Although Snoozy got up at around about eight, whenever he was due to go anywhere, he always arrived late. Snoozy spent all morning, yawning. His eyes were droopy and tired, in fact, when Snoozy the Snooker Player went to get a job, he was so sleepy that he got fired ! When his boss came for a look around, Snoozy was nowhere to be found. He’d gone for a rest, to take a nap, no wonder he was known as a dozy chap !
