THIS IS NOT A CAPTION

Nutloose (your #29743),

Many a true word spoken in jest ! I suppose the Mk.I was the PR version, the Mk.II the MPA job !

(Seriously, did this thing ever exist ? Could it exist ?)

This is a "spoof" K-7 which appears on a military photo site. The original K-7 looked like this (the prototype crashed on its seventh flight because a boom failed and it was not continued). Now back to the contest.....

After missing the turn for the men's room at the Dassault Christmas Party, the designer of the 2CV ended up being locked in the design room over the holidays with nothing but 40 Gauloises and a case of Absinthe. The rest is history.

Well, we found that there were so many people trying to stow away in the undercarriage that we thought we'd cash in on it & charge them. So, it's a class below Economy...we call it Steerage.

Judging as promised.


A fine win by Coffman Starter with..


"Hands up ... We need a volunteer to undertake Spinning Trials "


For myself, I thought that Boris Johnson's attempt to solve the twin problems of London's fourth airport and a shortage of affordable housing for asylum seekers was quite imaginative.


Well done, Coff.

There's that word again Steve, assimilate. I think there may be a glitch in Roberts Bionic-Organic-Robot-Genome (BORG) programming.

While Robert and Steve play with their "Tour de France" simulator, Matt and Venus wordlessly agree that it's time for another type of game in the sick bay.
