Irrelevant badinage and like nonsense

Post by DRT » 22:26 Sat 28 Nov 2015

Some threads, initially about interesting and serious matters, somehow acquire irrelevant badinage. This is an all-purpose garbage thread into which such nonsense can be moved. And into which more can be added directly. — jdaw1



The remainder of this post, and the following few, came from Gould Campbell, RIP...?. — jdaw1

He has a beard, patches on the elbows of his jacket and teaches art - what more evidence is required? :shock:

I refer you to my earlier response. There are two or three times as many Port brands today than at any time in history. Darwin had a point.

I apologise for being so busy this week, and away from my computer for so much of the time, that I missed this extremely witty display of badinage. You are both wrong, about something or other.

My wife married Mr Right. I married Mrs Always Right - although I might have to confirm that.

Is it wise to have this conversation where your wives and vindictive ex-mistresses can see it together?

Admins, might this thread be cleaned up slightly / some posts moved to revert the focus back to, er, Gould Campbell...?
