  1. I'm a bit concerned now, reading through this thread I find I am agreeing with the majority of people nominated. Am I really becoming a grumpy old man ..... or have the talent standards on the tv got so low that they irritate more than entertain?
  2. Was told by an Aussie that 'mungoballers' is a derogatory term for rugby league players/supporters used by union supporters in Australia.
  3. Quite a few years ago now there used to be a store over in Aus (Two Tribes Rugby?) that sold t and polo shirts that were exactly the same design as NRL clubs shirts, but made out of lighter material and with no sponsor details on. I bought a Penrith and South Sydney polo shirt. Good quality and quick postage. Then, one day, they were no more.
  4. The toilets in St Albans have been twinned with toilets in Myanmar, Pakistan, Sierra Leone and Zambia . Sub dean of St Albans Cathedral Abi Thompson was presented with four framed certificates, which include a photograph of the overseas toilet. https://www.hertsad.co.uk/news/st-albans-cathedral-toilet-twinning-project-1-6227251
  5. You can't be watching the same games as the BBC newsreaders, I swear, they are almost orgasmic as they describe the adonis like athletes that try to push the other adonis like athletes over a line. This morning on the Breakfast show, the presenter was so upbeat and positive as she talked about union games yet to be played that I knocked it off. Bah humbug.
  6. Got to agree with that, I learned about rugby as a lad by sitting on the wall at Derwent Park and my dad telling me what numbers the positions were and where they played and what they did.
  7. Halfway through series 1 of 'Godless' on Netflix. A gritty, violent western with a difference, ( and not because three of the leading actors are British (with American accents) - Lady Mary from Downton Abbey, Jojen Reed from Game of Thrones and Jack O'Connell who has been in a few things on British TV.) Jeff Daniels is the baddie - and what a baddie - and what an actor. Think of Clint Eastwoods Unforgiven, then add more grit and violence.
  8. I actually turn over from whatever program I am watching if Jo Brand, Julian Clary or Dianne Abbott are on but I don't know why, I just instinctively dislike them with a passion. There's a lot of people I don't enjoy watching on tv, but will stick with it if the program is good viewing ... yes, Naga Munchetty, you're one of them.
  9. Driving into town, main road, lots of traffic and approaching a zebra crossing. Young lad, late 20's, (well that's young to me) looking at his phone walks right out onto the crossing. Luckily the drivers are paying attention and all stopped. Half way over the crossing the lad stops, starts laughing and, standing still, begins to text - about seven car horns all sounded at once. He started walking again when he landed.
  10. And of course, from the Carry Ons - Thats a strange name. Why is the cat called Cooking Fat? Well that's what it sounds like. Mrs. Fussey: Joan may think you're a gentleman but personally I've got sore misgivings. Sid Boggle: You ought to put some talcum powder on them. "Dr please, I want to be wooed" "You can be a wude as you like matron." "You've stood on my Indian dress" "Sari" "Don't mention it" BABS: You're only after one thing SID: Why? What's the matter with the other one?
  11. I think you will see the 'true north' from this highly scientific map.
  12. Yay, let's celebrate storming an almost empty prison and freeing four forgers, an Irish "lunatic" who on alternate days thought he was either God or Julius Caesar, a failed assassin held from 30 years before and one aristocrat, imprisoned for "perverted sexual practices". How very French.
