  1. 2008 Summer Olympics

    I think given the girls' proximity to armed soldiers, their mutual patting might result in the premature discharge of various firearms...
  2. 2008 Summer Olympics

    I don't think the British Olympic Committee are bothering with building. We're making do and mending. They're going to put the beach volley-ball here, at Horse Guards Parade, so soldiers on horses can leer at girls in bikinis, patting the sand from each other's booties. The girls patting, I mean, not the soldiers. Soldiers only pat each other's buttocks when they're in barracks: iFrame (Click to view this page in a new window)
  3. 2008 Summer Olympics

    Hey! Yeah, I lurk now and snigger at newbies, and am only drawn from my hermit-itude by undeniable urges to clarify minority sporting events at the Olympics. My favourite was the dressage horse dancing to the BeeGees. Camper than a row of rainbow tents.

    It's based on the skills a 19th century gentleman would need in the army: riding, swimming, shooting, running and sword fighting.
  5. Crocodile hunter is dead!!!

    What a way to go. Let's face it, anything else wouldn't have been fitting.
  6. France Vs Italia

    When your blood's up and you're a bit frustrated, maybe the balls haven't been going your way, anything can happen. Who knows, maybe Maserwhateverzzi insulted his mother. It's just a shame he won't have the chance to make up for this mistake. He must have been the loneliest man in the world in that dressing room. And the result may well have been different. If Zizou had stayed on until the end, he would have taken a penalty, scored and alleviated the pressure somewhat and Trezegeut may not have missed. Then again, if the coach hadn't taken Henry off, he may have scored as well. Instead, the cup goes to an Italian side, many amongst whom may well be playing in the third division next year.
  7. France Vs Italia

    Oh Zidane. What a way to end it. I'd love to know what was said to him to provoke such a brain fart. Such a shame. Still, he'll be remembered as the greatest player of his generation by far. Was rooting for France, but am glad the Italians have something to celebrate, especially given the state Italian football is in at the moment. All hail Italy and their pint-sized captain.

    England! (or at least not France- you guys already won six nations) Brazil! (or at least, not Argentina- don't think we've forgiven you Argentina!)
  9. Some 2006 World Cup Predictions

    I hope the Czechs do well. It was heartbreaking to see Nedved being carted off in the European Championships- he's been one of the top players in the world and deserves to win something. That said: Go England! Even if Rooney does look like Shrek. Ah, the beautiful game.
  10. Happy Birthday Sue

    Many happy returns!

    Here's a bit of linguistic difference for you. Standard British English.

You bring back your groceries in a... bag The act of covering a house or area in front of a house with toilet paper is called... toilet-papering or loo-rolling You call sweetened, carbonated beverages: fizzy drinks You drink from: a drinking fountain, or would if such things existed outside Hyde Park. You tend to call the sweet spread on top of cake: icing Do you use the word cruller? no. what on earth is that? What do you call a traffic situation in which several roads meet in a circle and you have to get off at a certain point? a roundabout. What do you call an easy class? a doss lesson If it's raining while the sun is shining, you call it: nothing. What do you call something that is diagonal from you? diagonal What is the four wheeled contraption you push around your groceries in? a shopping trolley You work out in... trainers. Sneakers and tennis shoes are two distinctly different things "Y'all"... is only said when trying to pretend to be from the deep south.

"Route" rhymes with... boot Mary / marry / merry... all said differently. How do you say them the same? Mary- a as in M-air-y, marry short a, merry short e.
  12. Oilers-Ducks Game 5

    I haven't posted for a while, but I have to say that I'm disappointed by many of the posts on the board regarding Niedermayer. I know the fact that I'm a fan makes me biased towards him, but the utter abuse spewed towards a player who, at the end of the day, was a major reason for the Devil's success over the past decade is, for me, a poor reflection on character. By all means we should feel put-out. Sport is something that rouses the passions and heats the blood, but we shouldn't forget to be respectful and to be civilised. Nieds didn't even leave for money- if that were the case then perhaps the vitriol would be more justifiable, instead he left for family. His mother may be a bit of a sh!t, but we can't choose our relations. He did great service to the Devils and to hate him and abuse him for chosing to spend the final years of his career with his brother is wholly injust. I'm not saying we have to like him anymore, or that we have to cheer him on, just that the decision for change doesn't negate all the good previously done. Remember the good and look upon his decision with regret, not hatred. He may be playing for a ridiculous organisation, and I for one don't wish to see 'Mighty Ducks' on the Cup either, but for God's sake, give the man a break. Look on his works and be proud that we had him once, that he is what he is because he was a Devil. There can be no greater reflection on the team than that.
  13. Which country would you be?

    I'm Brazil You're athletic, charming, and probably a good dancer. Unfortunately, you don't really mind chopping down the rain forest, and you probably consider homeless people expendable in certain circumstances. Of course, your personality is so diverse that it's hard to track down exactly what you're like. You definitely like Pele, the World Cup, and shouting.
  14. Ok, I know this is like a 'major diplomatic incident', but it's also bloody funny. I didn't think we had the technological prowess, nor indeed the organisational efficiency within the ranks of our secret agents to pull off such a coup! The Times Article
