I am so sorry for my lack of tact mylord. Having fought a very successful battle against anorexia for a number of years now I should have thought more before mentioning MB's.

Although much of this thread (by definition) is useless gibberish I am glad that no-one has lowered the tone by mentioning you know who in connection with the chocolate confectionery previously alluded to.

If one is discussing Les Chanteuses, that France Gall ain't so bad either. Have you ever heard that track she did called "Ella, Elle L'a"? Came across it whilst on holiday in France a couple of years ago, didn't understand a word of it but rather haunting.

In 1893, Chicago hired its first police woman. Her name was Marie Owens. While the city was progressive in its hiring practices, Chicago's female police officers were not allowed to wear uniforms until 1956, fecking great getting lifted from a nekkid police lass, heh heh

Watched a clip of Arnie electioneering last night, surrounded by huge fat policemen, is having a vast belly prerequisite for being a Peeler in America?
Tiz only those gunbelts that seem to prevent a disasterous shift in COG and said poliemen toppling forward onto their collective noses.

Unless it's the Beverly Hills plod, then you'll find that the level of scruffiness (unkempt hair, beer guts, sweaty arm pits etc) in Yankee cops astounding viz UK peelers.

Some people might think it was suspicious, UL730.

I have returned from a week's withdrawal from this thread. I had to read 10 pages to catch up.

Then get busy ,Seacue

Did you have official permission to neglect your post. There are lists and if yours is one of the names that T.D. reads.......
Did you know there are lots of big engineering firms up where he abides. Draper Towers has lots of manacles in its dungeons, and where does the small hound get those big long bones?

By the way should you ever be caught in the coils of a big serpent. A blast from a gas filled fire extinguisher makes them loosen, apparently they dont like the cold.

I was standing on the end of Tynemouth pier a couple of months ago - and I'm sure I saw a Canadian goose floating by. But it could have been a fishing boat from Yarmouth - North Shields don't seem to have many these days.

Boats, I mean. I think.

Took the tribe to 'The Deep' at Hull at the weekend.

Thoroughly recommend it.

Perhaps I should add it to my 'Days Out' thread from a few months back.

Could have been the Bonga you saw at Tynemouth - it's easily mistaken for for a Canadian goose - it's red and 120,000 tons.

The photo purported to be of Tony Draper and Small Hound could well be a fake. I've suspected that "Mr. Tony Draper" is actually Monsieur Antoine Drapeur, a Frenchman who has cunningly infiltrated JB and inserts a few xenophobic items to keep his cover. The real AD/TD doubtless has a Gallois stuck to his lip and Small Hound is a caniche nain [miniature poodle] - beatifully clipped.

Criminy! My bottom’s sore! Presumably due to the sudden vast crustal shift, and them aliens not noticing (or caring) that I’d gone, and then me leaving a very strange re-entry contrail over Gateshead. The aliens claimed to be Denbolians whatever they are. They were green, about three foot high and had tentacles. I woke up in a field near a little village called High Callerton right next to a gantry of what looked like landing lights. All I was wearing was a strange coverall made of some paper material. In the side pocket was a copy of the London Underground map – those aliens think of everything don’t they? Well – nearly, because in making copies in black and white its value is significantly reduced. All the locals spoke with a strange accent, but I managed to leave the area without too much ado.

So, up there, wherever it was, I tried to make PPRuNe contact, but more than 33 pages have appeared on TRRBATPSOIT with nary a mention of where I may have gone… Thanks guys (and gals) – I always knew you cared…

So with a quick scan of TRRBATPSOIT, we’ve covered Johnny Ringo, a number 37 bus, the great Pyramid of Giza, muffins and cider, the Elder Sign, a strimmer, Henry V, Braveheart, Felicity Kendal, football, Dolly Parton, the ISS, lawyers, Hitler, Susan Stranks, Daleks, brown ale, the cost of linseed oil in Calcutta, vacuum cleaner probes (ouch!), tits, HM Prisons, Turtle Wax, Mars Bars, Gerry & The Pacemakers, scalf and gloves (???), owls, toads, jellyfish, huge fat policemen, and Canada Geese. At least nothing interesting has gone on while I’ve been off planet.

# He led them down the streets of town, right to the traffic cop, and he only paused a moment when he heard him holler stop!! #

Oh no!!! - FOUR tinfoil caps tonight one thinks…

may I humbly correct you, the french ciggies (dare we still use the term f*gs) are Gauloises (pic)

To get back to the topic of this nice thread :

Galois (first name Evariste) was a French mathematician who wrote down the foundations of the group theory during the night before the duel which he fought for some love affair and which turned out fatal. He died at 20.

[edited because of incorrect spelling of Galois' name. Shame on me]
