You start a thread for this?

Why not the 'I just painted my nails' thread?

Don't try and pass yourself off as some refined lover of wordage when all you say most days is 'this is bullshit', 'fuck you, asshole' and 'nothing up the ass'.

Lucky for you that I'm busy with those things otherwise I'd be off somewhere plotting your murder.  :P

If the three of us plus RGG had a podcast, we could discuss the finer points of how you'd make SV's demise look like 'an accident' nudge nudge.

Or if it's wordage, how the southern softies can't pronounce bath without it sounding like barth. Then we can have a collective discussion on the niceties of how our two countries are separated by a common language.

You're a sweetheart. I chuckled to myself when I re-listened to the gabcast and heard your story about the trip to the doctor and the lady naming animals in the other part of the room!  :D

I know SV is cheap, and RGG even cheaper, however very few can afford me.

Neither host has quit, so there would be little for Bobo to do.  :P

Yorkie! SV and IB thought I was you a couple of weeks ago on the gabcast, I was flattered and floored! Too funny!

Floored I can understand. The flattered bit I can't. Its nothing to aspire to, to be mistaken for being me; SV can vouch for that with the 'difficult' episode he had in the back of a darkened taxi. He can of course laugh about it now, and the police were very understanding.

Thanks for the tip IB, I'll check this one out.  I admit to being a bit of a word-nerd.  I've occasionally browsed thesaurses, and fretted over that last blank square in the NYT crossword.

Well I was flattered because here's this Midwestern guy doing a Liverpudlian accent on the gabcast that fooled a London native.  IB I understand, but Sred?  It was very flattering to hear him say "I know who this is... it's Yorkshire Pud."

I had a lot of fun that night....

It might have had something to do with the fact that it was four in the morning, and I  find it very hard to listen clearly when I have my face pack on.

Yeah, but it makes all the difference hunny bun.

All the more remarkable because I have never lived near Liverpool. I've probably been there three times in my life.

As far as SV is concerned anyone from north of Finsbury is a 'Northerner'. He can't help his abject sheltered life.

Fair comment, but I'm not unreasonable about this. If you live within the M25 (or 'the pale of civilisation', as I like to call it) I recognise your right to exist. I might even consent to dine with you occasionally and brighten your lives. As for the rest of you, you're all a bunch of flat-cap wearing hobbits.
