Do you have some amusing examples of two things that are inappropriately next to each other?

For example, in Hinterzarten, there is a large ski-jump. At the bottom, is a cemetery.
In Slough (many years ago) there was a good chinese takeaway. Next door was a vet......

What's in your locale?

In Macclesfield there used to be a fish shop next to a ladies underwear shop.

Near where I live there is a gym next to a Pizza shop that sells the best greasy pizzas you could ever want. I eat pizza.

Going back a few years I was in Hamley's - a world famous toy store in London. Someone with a sick sense of humour had put toy cuddly seals next to plastic baseball bats.

When I lived in Japan I went to a gym over a cake shop. It was always funny to go in the cake shop after a work out to see all the women saying, "well I have burnt off enough to have one of these."

So is phlegm lemon-coloured phegm?

I feel poorly enough without having to listen to (make that "read") your incessant wrangling as to the color of my phle(g)m. It progressed from lemon-yellow the first of the week to green to now being  a nasty greyish color that shows the chest is clearing up - but it is being topped of by the now-infected sinus-produced lemon-yellow stuff that gets into my chest as I sleep. It is the first out of my chest when I wake. Now, my physician needs to address my nasal cavities and associated sinuses (holes) 

Is this enough detail - or do you want me to measure the force of the cough that has my lungs everted half of the time? I feel as if a Viking has come along and given me a bloody eagle, my chest is so raw!

(bloody vultures, don't have their own life? All they can think of to do is discuses the color of an ill person's phlegm so they can have something to do besides play "Count'em" where the rules are simple - count the number of lice one can pick out of the hair of one's head in a 20 minute period. Those lice from the rest of your body or the furniture don't count.)

OH, and the plum color does occur. In the clinical pathology of the suffering I am enduring while you guys offer no support, the capillary rupture in the mucous membranes in the nose, in concert with the occasional irritated chest alvoeoli contributing a little blood to the mix, offers an occasional lugee veined with plum-colored nastiness. Thus, the Germany-residing, British-hating dentstudent does have a point. FOG - is that your all you two can thing of when faced with critical thinking?????

(Besides, it is a compliment, isn't it? (F**kable Older Guy)

Going back a few years I was in Hamley's - a world famous toy store in London. Someone with a sick sense of humour had put toy cuddly seals next to plastic baseball bats.

I do wish you would quit doing these things, Beaver.

It makes Beavers look silly - not that they already aren't rather amusing waddling along with their flat, hairless tail dragging their excrement behind them as the seek birch trees to gnaw on, especially when those places are as foreign to their normal habitat as a London Toy store.

This is an interesting statement. It shows little understanding whilst at the same time being abusive. I would like to see evidence of the latter part of your comment, please.

I may live in Germany, but at least I can speak and type English when needed.

I guess an ex-pat wouldn't understand. As for being abusive, why my dear sir, that is what all of us in chat do for fun.  Don't take it personal, it means you are loved by one and all and have penetrated the inner circle of NS Illuminati. I must congratulate you. ...   as for evidence: Evidence - Schmevidence! "We don't need no stinking evidence!" - (spoken in a Mexican accented version of English)

BESIDES:

Just 1d. would buy 2 or 3 cakes.

Showing your pre-decimalisation age there, foggy!

"BACH" TO THE SUBJECT

Ahhhhhh, shucks

The Ruptured Duck

"The Origin of "The Ruptured Duck" Insignia"

"The original Ruptured Duck was a cloth insignia depicting an eagle inside a wreath. It was worn on uniforms above the right breast pocket by WWII servicemen and women."
It was issued to service personnel who were about to leave the military with an Honorable Discharge. It also allowed them to continue to wear their uniform for up to thirty days after they were discharged since there was a clothing shortage at that time. This showed the MP's that they were in transit and not AWOL. Well, the boys thought the eagle looked more like a duck; and, because it meant they were going home, the popular saying was, "They took off like a Ruptured Duck"...hence the nickname."

They actually go together well because everyone gets drunk at office parties and either they photocopy their bums and fax them to people revealing a secret tattoo or they go off and have a tattoo because they are drunk.
