Especially in Manchester...Road signs, Fences, BT wiring...you name it they nick it. Me and my wife were sitting in a pub in Cheadle (Manchester Suburb) when all of a sudden the barmaid ran over and exclaimed "Did you see who stole the Cigarette Machine?" I looked at the wall opposite us and saw a Cigarette Machine Shaped Light patch where said machine had only moments before abided!
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

So you've been to Cheadle, home of the famous limerick?

There was a young woman of Cheadle
Gave a dose of the clap to the beadle;
When she said, "does it itch?"
He said, "yes, you damned bitch,
And it burns like hell fire when I peedle."

drinkography

A list of a drunkard's accomplishments.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
