"Throwing the hotdog down the hall" lives in the same general area as "it was like a wizard's sleeve"..

I'm sorry I asked . . . although I rather feared that it might be something of the kind.

"Wizard's sleeve" is also a mystery . . . . but I am not asking!

To do with the ratio of sleeve width to arm thickness among wizards, being high so that their arms are free to accurately cast spells.

Talking

Thank you for awarding the coveted Coffman Starter Trophy to me, Penny Washers! I shall carry it carefully down the hall and place it on the center of our mantlepiece. The posters below yours are "anatomically correct" in their interpretation of the American idiom "Throw the hotdog down the hall"! (Kind of like a co-worker of mine years ago who, after a hard day's night selling microcomputers, shrugged, sighed, and said "I guess I'll go home and stab the wife." I was horrified until I thought it through...)

Here's one that may or may not have anything to do with Cinco de Mayo, but, at least tomorrow, I shall say to PPRuNers one and all: "May the Fourth be With You!"

- Ed

Having re checked the terms and Conditions the American Airlines gate agent did agree there was no limit to the assistance animal allowed in the cabin. and so allowed the big fat git to board

Appaloosa Airlines bridled at this self loading hand luggage being snaffled aboard, but were nagged by the punter who said it would make the aircraft a bit more stable, and now they were saddled with it they should not shoe it off.

Man "...and this is the pig that I have to sleep with every night"

Woman "That's not a pig - its a horse"

Man "I was talking to the horse!"

(Thank you - this post was in aid of 'Give An Old Joke A Home' week)

How to get your horse on an aircraft.

Stewardess: "You can't bring that on here".

Man: "I'm bringing my guide dog on board - I was told that it was all right".

Stewardess: "That's not a guide dog".

Man: "Really? It feels like a guide dog to me".
