I thought it was rather sweet.
Tell the bloke in question you might consider it if he goes with another bloke first.
most common is along the lines of "so, do you ever invite someone in to watch?"
at least these days it is "social" chat rather than the boss as work as it used to be.
this is brilliant! :rofl:
All those mustaches! And the sand must get everywhere.
Sorry...I thought you said Libyan.
Perhaps she meant thespian show. Once more unto the breach my friends!
No, no! Lebanese!
What Lesbians ? .. where ?
Lebanese or Libyan tespian lesbians?
The German town of Limburg has stopped playing a children's folk song from its town hall bell tower after a complaint from a vegan.
Usually, Fox, You Stole the Goose sounds out frequently on the carillon, a mechanical chiming instrument.
Although the words are not used, a woman was upset by the song line "the hunter will get you with his gun", town spokesman Johannes Laubach said.
But the mayor is facing a wave of anger over the decision, Der Spiegel reports.
Marius Hahn agreed to remove the song from the bell tower's playlist temporarily as a gesture of kindness, the German newspaper reports.
However, his administration's phone has been ringing constantly, it quotes Mr Laubach as saying, with people phoning to express anger over the decision - or over the time being devoted to the issue.
The tower usually chimes out tunes from a list of 33 songs, including German children's songs, tunes from towns that Limburg is partnered with, and seasonal songs such as Silent Night, German media say.
The vegan woman, who is said to work within earshot of the town hall, has not been named.
For a complete marmalisation of the rationale behind political correctness, try this:
Excerpted from Joe Rogan Experience #877. He's a pretty good speaker and it's generally hard to fault his well-informed reasoning. I enjoyed the slight mauling he gave 'social psychology' as well. If you have the time the full length version it's worth playing through.
I'll watch it later. Ta!
It's great, oh it really is.
The bastards - heartlessly mocking the deaf like that. I'm writing a stiff protest.
I bellieve you.
I'm Spartacus ! .. not a quiz, just a class sit com news report situation on a plane
Funny story. I can imagine it being part of the movie Airplane! And don't call me Shirley.
... and if a stewardess came up to me on a plane and said "Are you Smith ?", I'd reply no, "I'm Mr. Smith" .. the last time I was addressed by my surname only was in the early 80's at school .. it's basic good manners after all ..
If a stewardess came up to me on a plane and said "Are you Smith?", I'd reply "They're a great rock band - I particularly like Walk this Way".
Recently got back from a wedding with a good number of old school mates in attendance. We're all pushing the big 4-O, but pretty much anyone not posessing a superior nickname was referred to by surname.
I've been invited to school reunions and either haven't been able to get to them and wanted to or have but haven't wanted to .. this one's for Mytho
My mum heard that song on the radio once and asked me "Is it The Goodies?"
Your Mum has the same sense of humour as my Mum ..
She was being serious! She thought it was Bill Oddie singing, and now I can't unhear the strong similarities!
While I can believe there are those in the West who do not wish to tar every Muslim with the extremist brush and bend over backwards to do so, I doubt they'd endorse "hanging gays" and denying all women's rights.
52% is quite a high figure.
Great, but what does that have to do with non-Muslims endorsing anti-gay and anti-female attitudes? Nowhere does it say they'd hold the rope.
Separate names with a comma.
