Every new thread on JB let’s see who can be first to get a Python reference in there. Must be very subtle so that only the cognoscenti will spot it ;)

8th May 2003, 00:12
Sounds like a good idea, are we allowed to say Ni! when we find a reference?

Only if you lack a shrubbery.

no sponsor
8th May 2003, 00:26
Conjugate the verb "to lack"

8th May 2003, 02:36
I lack
Thou lackest
He, she or it lacks
We lack
You lack
They lack

It's only wafer thin

8th May 2003, 05:10
I have no quarrel with you, good Sir Knight, but I must cross this bridge

8th May 2003, 05:24
It's only a scratch.

Uh, today we have, uh, for appetizers: Excuse me. Mhmm. Uh, moules marinières, pâté de foie gras, beluga caviar, eggs
Benedictine, tart de poireaux-- that's leek tart,-- frogs' legs amandine, or oeufs de caille Richard Shepherd-- c'est à dire,
little quails' eggs on a bed of puréed mushroom. It's very delicate. Very subtle.

Fell off outside Ottery St. Mary.
My bicycle pump got caught in my trouser leg.
Resolved to wear shorts from now on.

Well, I was first to infiltrate the 'undertakers' thread - but Rollingthunder is doing some sterling work! Just off to check the rest of the JB threads for hidden snakes ;)

8th May 2003, 17:17
Was that from

Lack lackamus; To Lack.

8th May 2003, 17:39
And BFU hijacks the Harry Potter thread in quick time.

8th May 2003, 17:58
BFU, at your earliest convenience, please present yourself at Schiphol Airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle or darkest Somerset for a neckshot.

angels scores a cracking hit on the 'naked thread!

P.S. Flaps - haven't you noticed how much more cheerful the threads have become? Anyway - nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition ;)

8th May 2003, 19:08

If I choose Schiphol, do I get an ID90? :cool:

.... and I think my title looks so much better in red. I guess a little shriving time could be good before I reach PPRuNe Heaven :p

8th May 2003, 19:28
Oooerrr, BFU, are you in trouble with the Purple One????

8th May 2003, 19:57
"Spanking first, then the oral s3x" :p

Chaffers....well done on the "Things To be Aware Of With Children" thread!

8th May 2003, 20:55
"My hovercraft is full of eels."

"Drop your panties, Sir William, I can wait no longer!"

8th May 2003, 21:18
Slipped a good one into the "BBC drama..." thread :O


8th May 2003, 21:25

Errrr no, Grainger - I'm being set free - it was all a mistake!

Only kidding! :p

P.S some great posts out there - Ozzy that was very subtle for a heavy metal man :ok:

8th May 2003, 22:03
Crikey, Flapper has turned BFU's title to her favourite colour! This could mean that you're in there dude. :E

Was going to add something Welsh Tartish on the feminism thread but I reckon flower would have throttled me. *ducks*

8th May 2003, 22:18
Thanks BFU :)

Your ancesters thread, the BLACKMAIL sketch...

I'm awaiting (hoping for) a knock on my door from the Purple Princess. Hopefully it won't hurt too much :E

I typed it, but even I wasn't tateless enough to post it on the "Pets" thread.

Wasn't it dead?
Nah, but it wasn't at all a well cat.....

9th May 2003, 00:10

Just blagged the council tax thread :E

Nice try, Ozzy - but not quite fast enough.

9th May 2003, 01:37
nice one Grainger, but I a got a verse into the "meaning of life..." thread ;)


9th May 2003, 15:16
Purrverse it war , Ozzy. As they say: "lack mir am Airship".

9th May 2003, 19:11

At last, an opportunity to insert Johann Gambolputty de von....of Ulm, on the "can't speak german" thread.

Waiting for a SARS thread for "Bring out your dead!" *clong*

9th May 2003, 21:09
Hats off to CFI he got it into the Toronto thread...There's nothing Nietzche couldn't teach ya 'Bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates, himself, was permanently pissed.

9th May 2003, 21:17
And Rene Descartes was a drunken [email protected], I drink therefore I am.

Aristotle, Aristotle was a ****** for the bottle....

9th May 2003, 21:21
Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed,
A lovely little thinker,
But a bug*er when he's pissed.

I claim the "what aeroplane would you buy" with le mouton anglais-francais, bon, les wheels ici, c'est formidable n'est-ce pas?

This is getting out of control Ozzy, looks like a case for bicycle repair man.

Hey! There's a bulletin board broken! Up the road!

Why, he's mending it with his own hands!

See how he uses a spanner to tighten that nut!

9th May 2003, 21:44
Caught me napping there, Ozzy :*

Well I'm sorry, but you're going to have to shoot me....

9th May 2003, 22:34
BFU Well, it doesn't matter. Go and tell your master that Arthur from the Court of Camelot is here.


9th May 2003, 22:58
The mobile phones one was a bit contrived, wasn't it Ozzy? At least mine was subtle.

Subtlety you see is my one weapon. Subtlety and surprise - oh, dammit !

9th May 2003, 23:11
Contrived? Well, err, I suppose that, err, no it weren't. Thought it flowed just nicely thank you :)

Now, you claim to be master subtle, you might like the one in the Reality Soap Opera... thread. But I challenge you to get one into the Universal Quiz 43 thread. So there :p


10th May 2003, 00:11
Well I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it !!!!

Great effort, Grainger - pure class :ok:

10th May 2003, 00:51
Bit difficult getting a python reference into a reply to a flame but I think I managed it on the feminism thread.... :)

10th May 2003, 02:00
Bravo Grainger, you rose to the occasion.
