Must have been in the early days of McDonalds - the Yank kids are beginning to look a little bit porky.

Brit kids were still on rationing then

And so do girls.

But only if they could fit their dolls into it somehow. If they
couldn't they weren't interested.

I vaguely remember that toy Electra (or Vanguard)......but at
$14.98 (whatever that was in old Aussie quids) was too damn
pricey for us poor people. So one had to make do with those
tiny plastic planes one got out of Corn Flakes boxes and stuck
together. They were fun till some bloody visitor one day came
and trod on me whole set. :*

I still remember the nasty little cow who broke my Pac Man. It was a great Pac Man that wound up and walked around snapping, and the stupid girl overwound it. :sad:

Yeh I did BP - and then Kelloggs discontinued the planes and
started bloody train sets. I used to set fire to 'em to simulate
train wrecks after watching Gomez Addams doing it on telly.

It was a great Pac Man...

Wha..? Pac Man??

Goodness gracious....!

And right up till now here was me thinking Worrals is mature
beyond my own years - and then I find out she's a youngster
under 50 (or even under 45!) :bored: .. I'm crushed!


Heh heh then again.... :E

the word on the forum slasher is that worrals also has a penchant for killer heels too.

Anyone else remember the brilliant Giles cartoon of a carton of 'Kloggo' sitting on the breakfast table with the legend "Free bicycle inside".

Oops. :}
I'm older than your wife but younger than you.
Put it this way; I'm old enough to remember when Farnham was cool but too young to understand why...:\

I collected cornflake box dinosaur models for a while but the parts distribution was really uneven. Even after you'd bullied the whole family into buying the 'right' cornflakes you'd end up with six identical tails and no heads...:{

So Worrals, since you can recall that raindrops kept falling on
yer head when you played 20 Explosive Hits on your 33 1/3rd
at home means yes you're younger than me, yes you must've
been a girl alright (Johnny F was never cool to us boys) and I
agree you must be older than me missus - since you've never
thanked me for posting PW Herman's rendition of Surfin' Bird.
I can therefore surmise your age bracket.....old enough to be
taken most seriously but still young enough to get away with
murder! ;)

Sisemen - I think you've been exposed to the Slasherisation
process too long. Good to see its rubbin' off on ya! :ok:


BTW Worrals, just in case you were too young to know how Gomez
blew his trains up...

Cool! :eek:Your mum must have been rapt... :hmm: actually I missed the reference, so thanks.

More like You're The Voice on a dodgy cassette (the bagpipe bit sounded even more wobbly after a few hundred plays) but you get the idea. In hindsight Farnsey was probably a bad example because his career spanned about four decades; he's probably heritage listed by now and would have to get a permit from the National Trust before changing his hairdo... :zzz:

Really? Not saying you're wrong, of course...:suspect: :}

Slasher, when I was a kid I LOVED that bit where he blew up the train !!

Seeing it again now, I wonder if it was the explosion, or the crazy look in his eyes ??

Nah its the explosion BP.

I used penny bungers to blow my trains up - then set fire to 'em.

I did the same to my model Spitfire, once the wheels and guns had broken off and the wings had been glued back on numerous times. Penny bunger up the guts. The mighty Airfix Lancaster, on the other hand, was for display only, and gradually migrated from its thread supports to the top of the wardrobe, to the bin when I moved out of home.

Wha..? You went and penny-bungered a model Spit?

A 109 or Heinkel I could understand RJM - but a nice
beautiful Spitfire even with its Hispanos and gear all
missing? What a bloody horrible thing to do.... :bored:

I'm dobbing you in to your mum!
