Grow a beard for Belgium.

Since only one half of the electorate can participate in a beardy protest perhaps the ladies could stop pruning their lady garden. It's nearly bikini season.

Whilst on the subject of my favourite Belgian and cloclo impersonator, we can watch him teach another language using song lyrics, and if you see the film, a few dance moves too. Magnolias Furv.

Find out whether my Hitler beats your Mussolini.

I play that game regularly on bus journeys with my colleagues. There are two different editions with various dictators. I also have Plague Trumps which is concerned with the lethality etc, of various Bacteria, parasites and Viruses. There is also one called Rauschgiftquartett which has to do with the price, deadliness, popularity and origin of various drugs. Particularly interesting because I wasn't previously aware that there was a kind of sage you could hallucinate from. Price per hit: 0,00 Euro.

The bit in that article about splitting them up according to which part of the world they come from and that whoever has no more tyrants in their hand is the winner is utter bollocks.

Interestinlgy enough, the tyrants are split up into the following groups: Puppets of the USA, faschists, monarchs, communists, kleptocrats and mass-murderers.

After Hitler, the best card to have is Kaiser Wilhelm II.

Are there no British tyrants? William I, possibly, except he was a Norman so doesn't count. I don't suppose Henry VIII wasn't very nice to his wives but does that make him a tyrant? I'm not taking the Mel Gibson world view here.

Hmmm. Well, there's John Lackland and there's Margaret Thatcher who sort of resembles John Lackland in drag:

If you won't accept the Norman, then I doubt you'll want a Pict/Scot in the pack.
Shame, because Kenneth MacAlpin was mad, bad, and dangerous to know especially if you were a Pict. Rather good looking though.Posted Image

Whose Doorways are alternate Night and Day,
How Sultan after Sultan with his Pomp
Abode his Hour or two and went his way.

Help save "doctor slang".

Some is well-known, like NFN for "normal for Norfolk", but the DBI was a new one for me:

DBI refers to "Dirt Bag Index", and multiplies the number of tattoos with the number of missing teeth to give an estimate of the number of days since the patient last bathed.

Tackle stereotypes head on like this muslim who beheaded his wife. Bear in mind, the pair of them started a television channel to challenge negative images of Islam. To think, some people claim Americans don't do irony.



Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.maryport2if5.jpg

Sometimes I ponder whether or not I'm younger or more "in tune" to the shifting sands of the internet than this forum. If I am, [via this already having over 2 million hits]....
