"BBC Staggering Stories.Quiet,isn't it?"

Post by Andy Simpkins » Fri Mar 26, 2004 6:06 pm

In the time honoured words used in a British Airways TV advertising campaign several years ago:


"Where is everybody???"

This forum has been put here for a reason so that the strange denizens who inhabit this site can converse amongst thmselves and post up increasingly strange topics and replies but it seems everyone is in hibernation at the moment.Even the regular stalwarts seem to have gone into a torpid slumber at this time.
We have lots of goodies posted up on this site and increasingly strange caption contests thanks to Adam so it would be nice if we could see a few of the familiar faces we normally see on here return to the fold.
Remember folks,this is your website and we,the editorial team,would like to see what you think of it..... :D

Sorry, Andy. We promise to be more chatty in the future. :oops:

Does everyone realise that Adam will be 30 soon? Time for grey hair and senility to set in. Time to look at a display of Hush Puppies in a shoe shop window and think 'Hmmm, they look comfy.'

Everyone should send him jolly birthday messages in acknowledgement of his great age.

Soon be time to grow up and act his age - as my dear old mum keeps telling me. (Hello mum!) :wink:

Altogether now: "We love you Adam, we do. We love you Adam, we do..."
:evil:

So how's the weather where you are?

Grey hair? I think you mean 'no hair'! Senile - I'll never go senile, Gerald. Hey, do you realise it's 1984 already! Time to get on down to these great 80's beats!

I've already got a few pairs of Hush Puppies! Been wearing them for about a decade...:oops:

Thank you - I will soon join you all as great aged ones. Still, I intend to reduce my aging by eating babies and sleeping in an oxygen tent.

You are legally allowed to stop counting when you reach 31.

It's worrying because when I am asked how old I am these days I have to stop and think. (I was never taught how to count this high)

But at least none of us have to count as high as Lord Summerisle who has officially run out of fingers and toes on which to keep track. :twisted:

Happy birthday short, hairy footed, one!

I've heard that at a certain age it is easier to just saw your leg off and count the rings - or at least that is what these strange fanatics are trying to persuade me...

You need someone younger around who you can have memorise your age offset and add it to their own age on request (they will have to be young enough to remember both their own age and the difference between your ages...) On that basis I think you are now 53..?

That's even worse when you consider his extra digitry deformities...

What do you mean quiet?

Post by tallorder » Fri Apr 02, 2004 11:04 pm

There's a new name that donkey and everything! :D

On a totally other note... I see as soon as a new Who is announced the old enemy stirs and returns to a place of power. Michael 'toilet' Grade :evil: is announced as the new BBC chariman!

Adam nearing 30? :shock: Surely not.... but that means... oh bugger, better get some fast livin' in before June!

It's still very quiet. I blame that Shonkey Donkey - he's scared everyone off!

So Michael Grade's been turned into chair-man? What special powers does that give him? Can people now sit on him? Can he swivel? Is he now collapsable? Does he have a leathery hide? If we break his back off will he become stool-man? I think it will take more than JMS or Joss Wedon to make that comic book a success...

As for nearing 30 - I prefer to think in binary terms. That means my next big birthday is 32 and the one after that is 64 (and then 128!) Still got some time for fast zimmer framin'
