    To all Gooners (esp Fab the boy)

    You will find that everyone on this board is as mad as a hatter and not worth your breath.

    Hey, Fab, is that statement like garlic to a vampire? Will it keep you all out?

    I just love simplicity.....

    • Great thought John....but then you ruined it by saying you love simplicity - there is nothing more simple than Flabby so he will take that as a compliment and you will probably become his new Buddy. Well - his only Buddy actually.

      Flabby (aka Gimp) please do not reply to this.

    • simplicity? they'll probably think that's the make of a washing machine! ;-)

    • i have already noted your love of simplicity, you really are very simple napolean.

    • hmmmm ....... it was due to napolean bonaparte most of europe drive on the right hand side of the road, england who remained out of his reach stay driving on the left, hope that clears up your confusion, john, can you qoute me that spurs history lesson again? it did make me titter.

      much love.

    • Didn't think they had cars in Napoleon's time!

    • no mike they had horses and carriages, gosh, think a little huh.

    • How silly of me... of course!

      And there was I thinking that in 19th Century France the transport infrastructure particularly the conditions of the road transportation network were no more then dirt tracks, where there were no rules or regulations governing the direction of travel - apart from perhaps in major towns and cities... well it just goes to show that all these years of studying Western Europe at UNI from 1750 up to the 1900 has just been a total waste of my time!

      Disappointed?... I'm feeling quite despondant at this moment in time!!

    • Fabby,Fabby,Fabby.....
      Such a blinkered view.
      If 'driving on the left or right' was 'owt to do with carts'n'orses then we would be the same as l'Europe. Those damned Frenchies did come here once before, as did another 'foreign' bunch...

      I ask myself why at this point am I trying to give someone a history lesson and I must admit the answer comes back in the voice of Sir John Gielgud (damned voices - I can't stop them you know) '...dear,dear Johnny, give up my boy, simply give up..the boy will learn....'

    • ah but will he learn? to quote another famous, erm, quote, 'there are none so blind as those that will not see', and our pet gimp definitely falls into that category............................................

      have often wondered what a cat finds so enjoyable when playing about with a mouse, twatting the poor little thing about and deriving a certain mashochistic pleasure from it, now i understand completely why the cat enjoys it so much! ;-)

    • Isn't this fantastic! Gimpy trying to give us a history lesson!!! An adaptation of an Oscar Wilde quote springs to mind - you can lead a gimp to culture but you cannot make it think.

      Mike you have really put the cat amongst the pigeons. Gimpy will at this very moment be off looking through his dirty mag collection for a dictionary that he remembers an aunt giving him in 1972 and then trying to work out what "Uni" stands for. You are so cruel.
