What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread

Something needs to change in this country 

 

 

Nicking someone's bike (especially in London) is effectively regarded as a victimless crime; all you'll get from the police is given a crime number and told to crack on with your insurance claim. If this human refuse thought there was a danger of getting turned into pizza by a 2 ton cop car, instead of the current "pursuit too dangerous because scum not wearing helmet" the bike theft statistics would tumble within weeks.

Asda? Really? A bit like the smartwatch I received from Amazon this week in one of their sturdy, cardboard carriers with a well stuck down flap. Pity the ends were both wide open though, I don't know how it didn't just slide out.

Are you serious , I really couldn't care less if scum like that even in this country end up in a wheelchair made out of pallets and old pram wheels 

Something needs to change in this country 

But Labour has raised concerns about the approach, which shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said was "potentially very dangerous".

potentialy very dangerous for theiving scumbags , who gives a shit , what about the innocent pedestrians when they take to the pavement trying to escape 

The bit of river where I walk my dogs was plagued with neds on stolen  bikes screaming about the place. They were responsible for at least one dogs death, Also one of them decided to sit in front of my immaculate A209 and wheelspin stones over the whole thing causing considerable damage to the paint. In fairness to our local plod, they did what they could. I remember having a conversation with a crowd of them one evening a couple  of summers ago, right after I witnessed one of the scrotes on bikes trying to run an  officer down. They were as frustrated as I was. They simply weren't allowed to follow said scrotes off road as, if they did AND one of the scrotes hurt himself, then the police would be culpable. This country is fecked up in so many ways these days.

Fashionably ripped!

Ha! I bought these 2nd hand on ebay about 10yrs ago. Plus the fact I'm wearing them makes them immeasurably unfashionable. ;)

Anyway even if the rips were fashionable back in 'nam they have since multiplied into non fashion, just poor person rips on the knee :(

Actually we should murder criminals rather than improve society somewhat.

Diane Abbott doesn't have enough grey matter to half fill a teaspoon.

Anyway, enough about that gormless cow.

Just sent in my entry form for the Club Triumph  2020 Round Britain Reliability Run.

What happened there? I can't make out if the front fell off or if it's in a gurt big hole.

I think it's one very deep hole that had the roadworks barriers around it. They now appear to be on the side of the hole. Maybe wind blew them onto the side and Mr Postie drove through the wet patch, thinking it's just a puddle.

Plus he’s just poured a whole bottle of Gevrey-Chambertin ( £40-£100 ish now ) into the coq au vin!

 

Well, you know what he always said... "And remember, if it's not good enough to drink, it's not good enough to cook with!"

 

Can't beat a bit of Floyd.

That’s my motto in life! I’ve said before that this does need plenty of quality checking, before and while cooking.

Wot no eggs? And where's the fried bread?  You ain't even trying.

And to that I always say, if it's alcoholic, it has NO place in my food, at any stage, in even trace quantities.

 

Two grins now.

I was at Carer's Group yesterday and the three ladies and I were talking about common sense.  One said something to the effect of, men just don't have any (tbf she did preface it with an apology to me).  I said "I can smash your argument there with two words, and neither of them is Off.  Diane Abbott."  She couldn't fight that!

Today, I walked round to my local chippy for my usual Saturday treat of fish & chips for tea.  Except... they were shut.  I came home for the car (no other chippy within walking distance) and headed for one I've used maybe once or twice before.  I was the only customer in the shop, with two female staff (young one on the counter, more mature doing the actual frying).  We were having a bit of craic based on the principle that life's too short to be serious.  I told Youngster about my late friend Harry.  Whenever I went to see him, he would lead me in the direction of the kettle with his usual greeting, which wasn't "hello, how are you?" or anything like that; he always greeted me with "What happened then?"  I would then respond with something like "Well it all went to pot after you left" and we would have a conversation that lasted until the brews were made, and might have made sense if anyone knew what we were talking about; but nobody did, including both of us.  No actual event was ever specified.  The whole thing was nonsense, but it didn't half amuse us!  Youngster liked that and I have a feeling she might even use it herself.
