My computer crashed the other day (2 days ago). Was a desk top, so went out and bought laptop with all the bells and whistles - good for here and in UK voltages. Wise move. Wow - 40 gig, Comapac Presario 2100
Had to take it back once for a replacecment the next day due to shutting down every 15 minutes. Now, cool. Much lost data, but what the hell.

Gotterdammerung

This is not the end of days. Ppruners get to work on this thread. Or suffer terribly.

Manc Marauders AKA Comrade Capucho's Cavalry are reforming: we need such stout-hearted folks on our side in testing times.

Lady G. When I spoke of polishing me balls it was for the cannon: Draper mentioned Gotterdamarung. Twilight of the Gods, not while Ppruners exist!

rant mode on/

There's a very good reason one has PPRuNe in which to vent, on those days one reaches nearly critical mass. Specially with the crass, mal-educated, self-inflated parvenues who spit dummy and stomp their petite size 9 in a size 40 tantrum at the merest suggestion one isn't going to drop the important job to which one is attending to give attention to s/thing so blatantly UNimportant.
Exactly HOW long have some 20-s/things been outta the crib in contemporary society, for all their high dudgeon that ppl in the real world aren't responding with total subservience to their every whim like mummy dear did?


mutter.. mutter.. mumble .. mumble.. put 'em in basic training.. mutter..

Davaar

One more FUNNY epic with which to regale one's siblings around the Christmas turkey.


Reminds one of an interview Kenny Everett did with Parky -

"The boy stood on the heaving deck
eating red-hot scallops,
one fell down his trouser leg
and burned him on the ankles...
... missed his [email protected]@cks completely!"

Durn near wet meself. . .

Twas christmas night in Jet Blast, twas quiet as can be
The mods they all sat back and thunk, no post for us to see,.
Wholi poured himself a whiskey, Flaps she read a book.,
content indeed at this respite, their ease began to took.

But what is this? upon the screen some words began to flicker,
Flaps she cast aside her book, Whols spat out his liquor,
You can't post that, they both did cry, Danny'l have a fit
With trembling hand they both reached forth, to hit the delete tit.

Occasionly in cyberspace a glitch it doth appear,
the delete key refused to work, the post remained quite clear.
What to do, they both did think, cant leave that upon the screen,
The pictures were apalling, the worst that they had seen.

Twas on the eve of christmas, on a forum called Jet blast,
some evil prooner posted, norty pickies from the past.
Now prooners know of airyplanes, they been on flying courses
and now they know as well as that, what Katherine did with horses.

Oh to be as talented as you, Herr Draper

I could never be a poet
And I most certainly know it

Mr Draper looked with doubt
At the Jet Blast forum
Where the threads lay round about
‘Now,’ he said, ‘I’ll bore ‘em.’

Lengthy grew the pointless thread
Though the taunts were cruel
Wholigan he shook his head:
‘Flaps, this will not do, gel.’

‘Bring me Drapes and bring me Spork
Bring me Mr Davaar,
Topcat, Timmcat, do not talk –
Wait until we have our

Increased bandwidth here on PPRuNe
Then we’ll have a replay
Until then (which won’t be soon)
Buggah off to Ebay.’

It is a truth universally accepted, that no poet can read anothers work without being overcome by the poem writing lust themselves.

Whols spat out his liquor,
I don't believe a word of it,
Methinks you should have said,
That Wholi nearly choked on it ...
But swallowed it instead.

I mean, really, Mr. Draper ... Wholi spitting out a mouthful of perfectly good booze???

Unhappy

Without wishing to be seen administering severe corporal punishment to an equine subject already deceased, Onan the Clumsy has made 45 posts in 4 days. I am concerned for his mental health.

Quite right too, Binos, a poster of his experience and capability should be able to manage much more than that.

Maybe he just has a cold or something.

Would anyone like to purchase a Humbert?
Today there is a proliferation of them, with signs dotted about the countryside and clusters of them in urban areas advertising Humberts For Sale.
Also saw two trucks carrying them Caution Horses this morning.
I've not yet seen any Caution Humberts but it is only a matter of time...

I suspect, timmcat, that it's beyond even my power to stop you from posting here.

Besides, how would I know how many posts I need to make to catch up with Mr Draper?

SG.. do we have a problem? PM me and lets sort it out and let this thread retain it's total disdain for all matters unpleasant and irreverant (or should that be irrelevant).

One thinks tiz just a ploy we poets sometimes use TC, we use words wot rhyme, ergo Do not talk rhymes with Spork yer see.

Bring me Drapes and bring me Spork
Bring me Mr Davaar,
Topcat, Timmcat, go away and boil yer heads


See, it don't quite work.


Err the above thyme is intended for demonstration purposes only and it is not recomended you try boiling your heads at home.

Er, I don't think so, timmcat, but I've been wrong about these things before.

Timmcat, Topcat, do not toil,
To put your heads in boiling oil.
At worst your toes; but not your head.
Do it once, for sure you're dead.

You'd best not even try with water;
One hundred C is greatly hotter
Than you would like. Stay far from it;
The spectacle would make us vomit.

Topcat, Timmcat, do not fret,
Do not even be upset.
If it were any two but you
I'd be more coarse and just say spew.

I'm eating a teacup full of raw chocolate-chip cookie dough. I hope it doesn't have any adverse effects. Like death.
