Well, it had to be done, didn't it? And since this is both the first and last post, I have won. Thank you all.
I've never had an animal that did that. It's disgusting. Kray, for a man whose name sounds like "cracker", you're treading on thin ice.
Well, I'm back [sounds of cheers in the background] and I'm happy to restore some sanity to this thread - not a moment too soon, judging by some of the previous messages. And I'll retrieve the trophy. Thanks Munky for looking after it for me, most kind. Back now where it belongs. [Smiles and graciously resumes sitting on the winner's throne].
You'll have to move. The dog wants a drink.
Dinky sneaks a sip when you aren't watching.
You're not referring to my blind cat, are you??!!
Jimbo, I love your sense of humour. I really do. If only you wasn't my swornest emeny in this game, I could appreciate you, rather than disembowel you. As for Cris, his entrails are not safe, either.
I saw a picture of him in your gallery. Since then I've seen him take a nip from your potty.
I think you're a bit potty, old chap. And get out of my lavatory.
...is that lavatory or laboratory ?
Well. I never thought you'd be the one, Kray. You just hurt me bad Cut me to the heart! Hurt my tender sensibilities, you did. An' you made me cry!
Dez, I'm not your swornest enemy. Honest. (he said, crossing fingers behind back).
I NEVER use bad language. Even when offered your soup. Although the temptation is very strong. ;)
Gee, it sounds like the fumes, er I mean aroma, from preparation of this soup affects the cook as significantly as imbibing it affects the recipient. Can anyone tell me in which direction the prevailing wind from Australia goes? It could be helpful to know this.
We don't suffer wind in this country. All the hot air comes from the northern hemisphere.
Wind or no wind, we are catching wind that you are concocting prevailing soup in your laboratory (sic).
Gesine has doled out your secrets. :)
I'm sorry Dez, Due Apologies. I did cross the line, the temptation was strong.
Chris, what do you think you have heard from me?? I don't know nothing about the specifics of Dez's soup. But here is a little german poem of a witch's soup, suitable for Halloween:
Krötenschleim und Spinnenbein
kommen gleich zu Anfang rein.
Fledermaus und Lebertran
werden dann hinzugetan.
Eine Stunde linksrum rühren,
dabei das Feuer kräftig schüren.
Tollkirschsaft und Drachenblut -
Du wirst sehn, das schmeckt Dir gut !
Translation (its no as good as in german, because of the missing rhyme...)
Paddocks slime and spider leg
are getting in the pot at first
Bat and cod sliver oil
are coming next to boil
One hour stirring chiefly
while raking the fire well
Belladonna juice and dragon blood
you will see it will taste good
Maybe this is the recipe to win
Wow! sounds like a much superior version of mine! I'm off to the kitchen!
Kray - stop changing your post. People need to see what made a delicate flower like me cry. And if you knew what was really in my soup, you'd not be apologising. ;p
Since you're all distracted by the cooking class, I guess I must be the winner.
Gesine, I knew you were a soupster at heart. You even shared your recipe with us in a poem you wrote. I am deeply touched! :)
Dez, you'll have no trouble coming up with the spider's legs. You may have to go back out in the bush to get them.
Float the eye of newt with the croutons. They're best that way.
Oh, looks like everyone is at work or asleep. I don't mind being the winner.
Hmm... Gesine's poem reminds me of an old refrain:
Eye of newt
And lizard's claw -
Half an hour
At regulo four.
I've added a new verse:
While you're all
Eating your dinner
Is now the winner!
It's a good job you are all photographers and not poets!
perhaps we could do limericks instead!
I've added yet another stanza:
While you lot were in the boozer,
Dezzy won. Makes you the losers.
Yes - what do you have as poems or limericks for Halloween? Here, in Hamburg all the kids enjoy the day and make a lot of nonsens in the streets.
I'm training kids in judo and we have a competition called Halloween Cup. It's very popular in Hamburg cause we make not only the competition but rather a little Halloween celebration with poems and eatings and kind of perform magic and make the same nonsens the kids do because it's nasty!
@jonfletch : may be our poems are little bit trashy - but so what??! Do you have one??
I'm in halloween mood and I like it, because therefore the magic is mine and..... so I win the game
Gesine, anyone who teaches judo is very likely to win. However, does judo beat a pointy stick?
No, but we can bare it . We know where our starches are ;-)
