Todays quote comes from The Chaser.

Bradley Walsh - Who created The Rocky Horror Show?
The Chaser - Richard Wilson.
Bradley Walsh - No.
Team gets it right, it's Richard O'Brien, not Richard Wilson, who is most well known for playing Victor Meldrew.
The Chaser - I don't believe it.

Keren: "Mum, over there is a tree that looks like a man who is holding a cloud shaped like a baby sheep."

Cracked me up! :D I responded by saying "Is there? Look over there, there's one that looks like a girl holding a giraffe shaped like a rainbow!" She said 'Oh yeah, so there is!" :lol:

Kids are awesome. These days I am carrying some weight, some of the descriptions of me, their teacher have made the parents squirm. I laugh with the kids be cause they are right.

Overheard earlier.

German tourist, to a small boy: So, does it ever stop raining here?
Boy: I don't know, I'm only eight!

That's rich considering the worst rain i've ever seen was in Germany.
I used to be in Hamburg every 4 days and only ever saw two kinds of weather. The sun was cracking the paving slabs or the sky was as wet as The Elba. It felt like you could go outside with a knife and cut yourself a slice of rain.
The nice weather was good because our femaklle crew members liked to take to the deck while we were in port to take part in a bit oof topless sun bathing. Very liberal some of these Dutch girls :mrgreen:


The following exchange took place between me and Jo the other day while we were walking Scoobie.

Me - What's that there on that front door?
Jo - A doorbell.
Me - Why's there a sign on it?
Jo - They might be deaf and can't hear it.
Me - Oh, I remember now, it's one of those brail doorbells for the deaf.
Jo - Isn't brail for the blind?
Me - Yes, but it still let's you know someone is there.
Jo - oooooooh, OK. (couple of seconds silence) Wait a minute...............

Actually, the deaf use a flashing light and a fan (when you hit the button it activates them), so with their enhanced senses they can feel the wind from a distance or get a reflection of the flash light.

:twisted: A friends post on facebook.......

Obama wants to fix the economy, reduce unemployment and healthcare. Romney wants your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle. It's a clear choice.

Nah that's just a joke I like to use. I heard he stated "I've been shot" but that could just be another rumor, not much into Lennon to do research though

:twisted: Quite the opposite actually.
You know those old films of the Nurenburg Rallys?
They were dubbed over.
They weren't really shouting "heil" and saluting, they were putting their hands up and shouting me.

Original trascript....................

Hitler - Who wants ice cream?
Crowd (with hands in the air) - Me.
Hitler - Who wants a hotdog?
Crowd (once more waving) - Me.
Hitler - Onions?
Crowd - Yes please.
Hitler - Mustard?
Crowd - silence
Hitler (Aside to Goring) - Herman, hold the mustard. (to crowd) anyone want a Fanta?
Crowd - Me.

That's how it went all day.
All the stuff about world domination and aryan supermanism was put on later for propaganda purposes.

When you see Hitler writhing and yelling louder and louder and grabbing his mike, you can tell that he suffers from terrible stomach cramps. German cuisine didn't agree with him. If only Hitler had a better cook, a great tragedy could have been avoided. I think Hitler originated the line: "I can't tell your steaks from a braised tennis ball!" (that sounds even funnier in German) That was used much later for comedic purposes.

Margaret 'Maggie' O'Keefe: [about Cliff not going to Canada with her] But Cliff, it'll be so terrible. I'll, I'll be so cold and all alone. Who will keep me warm?

Cliff Clavin: You'll do fine Margaret. Women have that extra layer of fat.
