    Any quoting from the Life of Brian is out then. Chapmans closing line would cause a meltdown.
  2. For those of you that can and want to sit through it, there's a B&W (careful not to use the words in case some 'bot' bans me from living) film on YouTube starring Cyril and John Pertwee (its clear in this one where he got the Worzel Gummidge voice from). I'd never seen Cyril acting before and to be honest I hadn't missed much but it was interesting to see him in another role.

    Zuckerberg and Thinkpol not really thinking it out. Some of the media on there is vile . FB disgusts me and I won't subscribe to their crass hypocrisy. Bring back the quill and pounce pot, that'll teach them.
  4. “Altered” would seem the one category, out of those listed, where further explanation is required, the others being self explanatory.
  5. Why would a flan flaw fall in to the rejected category?
  6. Does one have to pay if the coin is rejected then? I really dont follow slabbing companies so please excuse my ingorance here.
  7. Doesn't seem anything altered at all to me and if I were looking to play devils advocate and just question something for the sake of it, perhaps they see tooling here?. I can't really spot anything to question. Rather remiss of these companies not to give details and leave the owner in limbo.
  8. did you have some “sossiges” with it?
  9. more football related…. it’s cummin gnome

    We were out for a few drinks with the project team and the company COO was there, paying of course. We’d had a few jars and he started complaining about the glis glis in his rafters. After an interesting and lengthy explanation about them and the high cost of getting rid, I concluded that they are basically just posh rats, but cute ones.

    Three squirrels were sitting on animal hides... The first squirrel was sitting on a rabbit hide and weighed one pound. The second squirrel was sitting on a wolf hide and weighed two pounds. And the third squirrel was sitting on a hippopotamus hide and weighed three pounds. This proves that the squirrel on the hippopotamus is equal to the sum of the squirrels on the other two hides.
