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.
Cris's hidden shame, now revealed by his Lepidopterous friend.
How could one wallow in shame after receiving the glorious prize!
Well, one wouldn't want to see you inconvenienced, so it's fortunate that I've already claimed the glorious prize!
And yet neither of you have won. Tragic life, striving at windmills, moths about a flame, which flame is all mine. Flamin' liberties! I am the winner and you have to learn to accept it.
Erm, sorry, but you've just been burned!
Burned by your own flame nonetheless. I suppose I could spare a little prize money to get you a friendlier candle. One with no wick!!
But, Cris - last prize is only a certificate. How will you afford the candle?
There you go again, macromouth - wishful thinkin' pours outa you like Niagara Falls.
A certificate worth a million!! (and one candle)
The stificat is only worth the paper it's printed on, and I recycled that. There's a shopping list on the back. That might be why you think you're gettin' a candandle.
And are you going to vote on the comp? Last day.
Dear me, I'm so sorry to hear that Oz shopping lists still include candles. Don't they sell lightbulbs over there? And there's no point in waxing lyrical about a certificate. The prize is mine!
We have this odd little tradition. On birthdays...oh, you wouldn't understand.
The judges have ruled that you are to be disqualified for being silly. I couldn't argue with that, now, could I?
Kids get a kick out of this candle trick if a moth gets too close and blows it out:
The trick will also work with your headlight candles of your bullock dray.
This moth messed up my candle...http://screencast.com/t/njDTQoCMSm
Hey, that's no moth, that's a fly! And we moths are not on speaking terms with such creatures. They can buzz off.
You're right. I posted the wrong picture. This time I got it right. http://screencast.com/t/pc7Jw5Inef
@1769 Racist? No, healthist! Some of those fly guys feed on - yuk - dung. And other substances too unspeakable to mention.
@1770 Got it right??? You're kidding! That fellow is a weevil, not a moth. I recognise him, he's one of three brothers: Seeno Weevil, Speakno Weevil and Hearno Weevil. At least, I think that's their names.
Those were the three stooges of the insect world.
This weevil is kinda cute like a hedgehog.
Macromouth has been sittin' on that joke, just waitin' for the right time! Well done, feller-me-lad. Quite funny for a loser. Well, okay - you did win the Funny Business comp, but that's all. It stops right here!
I think he looks like a crazed penguin. Not unlike your good self, Cris. All you woozers look the same. I can't tell you apart.
Erm, if they all look the same, how do you know it's Cris?
'Cause he looks just like you, so it must be him.
I think at this point I'd better call a little sanity to the proceedings by pointing out in case of any misunderstanding that I'm the winner.
Ha-ha-ha...I must have mis-read. I thought you said, "sanity"! These old eyes aren't what they used to be. Still, with my millyun dollers I can buy some glasses. To toast my win.
