Pet hate:- newsreaders saying 'guns were recovered'
incorrect, they were not lost, they were found and
thereby 'seized'.

I heard two gals speaking on the DORT yesterday...you know that Mid Atlantic pseudo American accent. After each sentence one would keep saying period.....grammer's comment about full stop and comma made me remember this daft girl period.......as they don't use commas nowadays , she didn't have to say comma at each pause period
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

WTF! It's getting worse. Is there life on Mars?

From whence did intelligentsia disappear?
Where is my spellcheck gone.
Where is my grammer gone -not you with the pink gitar
Bloody French beer.
Naked women - begone! Foul saucereresses!
Am I having a siechotic experience. Help me Rocker, I see a bird up in a tree - I want to be free!
All I need is love! Am I going mad?
Help!!!!!

Hey Bugs wuu yes you are going mad but you have me with you :cry: I saw a bird in a tree once, also spotted a Lesser Spotted Naked Lady as well :roll: sometimes after being on here I dream of Fiesta Red Fenders changing to Pink as Evolution speeds on and climate change gathers apace and we'll all have to move inland to Swords and enlist for Weird English Language courses run by an alien from some strange Planet :shock:
Do you know the way we can get tongue tied ? Well I occasionally suffer from "spell tied " it must happen to you all sometimes ! What I mean is, you spell a word, it looks wrong, even though you know you've spelled it correctly and the more you look at it the more weird the work looks, take " Language " for example, sounds like langwidge when most people say it, well how is it pronounced , Frenchlike ? Lan-gooo-àag don't stare at it too long :lol: it's a weird word alright, and there's more !!!
See Bugs, we are not alone :roll: by the way, you'll get a free trip to Mars if you keep mentioning that " Festive time " around here :P you'll be getting a Strumdinger :lol: :lol:

Overheard this morning, when it was chucking it down....

" Isn't the weather terrible?"
Ah, ye wouldn't put a milk bottle out in it! (If you had one).
