Re: What are you reading right now?

Terry Pratchett. Until a couple of years ago, I had never read a Terry Pratchett book. Now I am up to about book 20 in the Discworld series. Seriously? :confused: 20 is around the Hogfather / Jingo era? Small Gods and Night Watch are two of my favourite books (and if they are kicking Tom Sharpe off...

Re: CURRENT Television

Celebrity Masterchef. For some reason Vic Reeves (very funny but bonkers comedian) is on under his real name of Jim Moir. Every time someone refers to 'Jim' I find myself wondering why they keep talking about Jim when they're looking at Vic :idiot: Also, Rachel Stevens will be appearing in another e...

Re: Official Cocktail Needed

My suggestion would be the 'pint of beer'. It's quite straightforward: 1. Check the 'beer' in question is not Budweiser (other American canoe waters also apply). 2. If previous dishwaters, throw in bin. 3. If not, apply beer to pint glass, making sure not to cause too much frothing and leaving a hea...

8901: When marking the papers of thine students, one should be halfway pissed. It makes it less painful.

89-00: When marking maths papers of thine students, one should be totally pissed. It is the only way to understand their working out.

Don't use the search function. Seriously, don't bother, it's absolute dog toffee. Google is much better :welcome:

Re: Did you hear who died?

Michael Bond, 91, best known as the creator of Paddington Bear. By all accounts a genuinely nice person who wrote some very funny stuff - I remember reading the Paddington books my mum had as a child and laughing.

I hope he has a marmalade sandwich in his hat.

Re: Did you hear who died?

Peter Sallis is a great loss - a brilliant comedian. But cheer up, there's a rumour that they've signed William Hague to play Wallace. Are you mad? '14 pints a day' Hague compared to Sallis? I'll be launching footwear at the telly inside 5 minutes. Bodger was a decent bloke, I remember watching tha...

Re: What in the goddamnhell has been going on around here?

Just your normal ordinary everyday random idiotic lunacy. We've lost a few - Pieces, Bart, and Rain are all drinking at the beer volcano. :cry: Elvalia and Zank are out making meaningful contributions to society. Others have drifted out with the tide, the old rat cellar ain't what it used to be. So...

Re: The New Convert Thread - MAKE YOUR FIRST POST HERE


This is not funny. There are lots of funny things that people can do with cover teachers (FSM knows I've had a few done to me) but this is just dull. I've had more laughs in an all-staff meeting about budgets.

Re: Happy Birthday

You then, when Roy uses a dictionary definition to point out that protege is a FRENCH word think that because that definition is in an English dictionary it somehow invalidates where the word protege comes from. I simply claimed that using an English dictionary for a foreign definition is like aski...

Re: Happy Birthday

some twerp suggested that Google Translate was sufficient evidence to rebut his correction to a mis-translation. I rebutted the French translation, which I double checked with my French instructor, whose first language is French, yamuppet. As Roy has pointed out, you did nothing of the sort. To 're...

Re: Did you hear who died?

Chris Cornell, grunge singer with Soundgarden and later Audioslave.

I was never a big Soundgarden fan but the work he did with Audioslave was awesome, it was Rage mk 2 with snarling sung vocals rather than rap. This is probably one of the better examples of the new direction they took.

Re: Did you know?

Sorry, I don't speak slang, what is Yerp? Yerp is the next continent to the right. In between Murca and Aysha. Directly translated, it means slightly different things, not the same in each language. I am afraid that statement is too wrong and too silly to bother arguing about. I probably should hav...
