A work colleague struggling to remember the name of something comes up with the following:

"What do they call those boats that float?"

The answer he wanted to hear was 'Hovercraft' but the answer he got was "That would be a boat"

I'm sorry, the spirit of Al Swearinjun compelled me.


Saw a stat once about Deadwood - 36 episodes of the show, cocksucker is used over 300 times. And fuck was used almost 3000 times.

Remember kids - swearing isn't big or clever....but from the mouth of Al Swearengen, it's bloody poetry. (And he wasn't called Swear Engine for nothing)

Finally got around to actually paying attention to the video for the absolutely stonkin' "In walks Barbarella" by Clutch, to find that it's not:

"Heard you got detention three times this week
Playing with the bad kids, damned by the clique"

But is actually:

"Heard you got detention three times this week
Playing with the bad kids down by the creek"

Have a video too:

* The Pink Elephant**, maybe?

That was the name of the club night in the Zoo Bar, wasn't it? I seem to recall that was the name, but then.....I was very, very drunk (Zoo Bar....Saturday afternoons....2 for the price of one cocktails before Bruxelles)

You know, Joe Elliott has lived in Dublin for decades and he's about the only Dublin-based celebrity I've never seen (Dublin's small, see, not like That London).  I can only surmise that the fecker's hiding from me.

Himself and Ricky Warwick (The Almighty, Black Star Riders) used to be occasional visitors to Bruxelles back in the mid-90s....use to pop themselves beside the jukebox, just to the right of our band of brothers that used to take up the old corner beside the bar  :lol:

Am I missing something or are you?

Not missing anything at all....just enjoying the possibilities.

Really well done - favourite bit we found was:

going down the Netflix route he ends up in a big "kung-fu fight" with his therapist, and eventually his dad (who you can then kick squaw in the nuts!!)

We're going to have another crack at it later - this time we're going for Sugar Puffs!!!!!

Now, how about a round of Twoothy media club? Books, songs, ditties, magazines, films, tv series and games that might appeal to 2000AD readers.

Adopt, don’t buy whenever possible.

Excellent advice - loads of animals out there, with various rescues, in need of a good home. One of the reasons our house has 11 guinea pigs at the moment...was 12 up until recently (nearly 20 overall in the last almost 4 years)

Unfortunately we lost the legend that was Frisbee, an older piggie we took in back in April following the death of his brother. His previous owner didn't want to take on a new younger pig and knew that Frisbee needed company and we jumped at the chance. As he was well over 5, we decided he was too old for the snip so we couldn't pair him up with any of our existing sows but we kept him alongside Scarlet (who lost her own male companion around the same time) and the two of them were perfect together.

When we became aware that he may be on the way out, we took down the divide between them and let them have some time together knowing that he didn't have the energy to get busy with her....and within minutes this was them (Frizz on the left)

Gonna miss the little bugger.

As Susan Ivanova might say, "no bah today, bah tomorrow. There's always a bah tomorrow."

BAH!!! 8 weeks of hot weather...go to a festival, and down comes the rain. And being up a mountain, in Wales, it was really bloody wet. Unfortunately, the kids didn't want to stay beyond the 2nd band as they were absolutely soaked through, so we had to head off and give it a miss. Had a nice weekend in Wales regardless though.
