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.
Because he's bin away. Be careful. Dan was very nearly forced to eat that cat when he lost a bet. He is a man without fear...or tastebuds.
Yes, it was nearly a catastrophe.
@2040 thank you.
@2042 tastebuds is what I'm missing, not fear.
Soup! Soup! I must have soup!
No, please take it away....!!
Ah, there he is! You scoundrel! You take a rare gap in time just to come here and insult my soop??! Go and...and...GET A TISSUE! All that sniffin' is very annoying!
A cheap shot inspired by desperation you know
I make only high quality shots, I'll have you know! Cheap - indeed! I paid a lot of money for that shot. Got it from a cattledog an' all. (At this point, I feel it is necessary to explain to the American that I am using a colloquialism for a catalogue.)
I understand about the catalogue, but what's all this about using collies for a quialism?
Ground up with a little salsa, a collie makes one of the finest quialisms available. I am surprised an Englishman knows what that is. But then, you are...special.
My understanding is that the Antipodeal language is based entirely on colloquialisms. The prize is not privy to that form of speech. He likes straight talk and a firm handshake.
Of course he's not a privy. I'm shocked that you would speak of such things in his hearing! And I hope you washed your hands before shaking his.
@2051,2052 Well of course, the outback is full of privet Bushes, and they use them to...never mind. What I don't understand though is why they never have didgeridon'ts.
History tells us that the first didge was discovered while fashioning a pointy stick from a euclypt and it turned out to be hollow from termites. He blew through it to clear out the debris and created a haunting sound.
From that time forward, pointy sticks which weren't properly hollow were called didgeridon'ts and given to the soup ladies who hung their cauldrons from them.
Corn, and their resulting cob, hadn't migrated from the original cultivars in Central America which allowed the privy bushes to proliferate. Privies are still commonly used in ornamental horticulture as a landscape testament to their past history.
That's almost as accurate as current history books.
I'm so glad I have given two losers something to occupy their time after they realised they had no chance of winning. It warms my cockles.
Good to hear you are baking cookies!
When I'm finished, I'll get a bigger tray for the kookies. You will all have to climb on by yourselves. A woman of my advanced years shouldn't have to lift you.
Cookies are part of the prize for winning LOTP.
Nice of you to make them. :)
Absolutely! I's like a tray of chocolate chip, please.
Hmm, well they're no trouble to find round here!
You lot is a confederacy. That is against the rools. You are hereby unsqalified.
Unsqalified? There's lots of squalls round here. But fortunately I can weather them.
Apparently she hasn't read the sea-squall of the story.
this tit-for-tat conversation is making me seasick
then again; if you are all busy making and being cookies
I can run of with the Prize
