C'mon, Don_1, you should know me well enough by now to know that I would rather not so much as even lift a finger!Oh, and when you visit, don't forget to wash yourself after desert in the finger bowl right behind you.And don't you even think of laying a finger on my wife. we'll both shake our fingers at you for attempting that!
The beautiful young lady receptionist at the hotel rang me to say that my room booking had been confirmed. Now that's what I term as a cutie call.

I suppose we should be thankful that you didn't mention Fingers Malone when you knuckled down to write that.I'm not going to take a hard copy of this post, I can do without a finger print. I'll just make do with a digital copy.
I wonder if they will celebrate English language day at Oxford University???If the Chancellor of Oxford University were to be removed from his position on the grounds of mental instability, could it be said that he would have lost control of his faculties ?
"All Chancellors are mentally unstable".
Oh look, this is getting close to satirical punning.

Because they 'can'.Now that's jarred my memory. It was beautiful late summer's morning and down at the manor house, the gardener was tending to the fruit nets to stop birds from pectin at the redcurrants.The Squire had invited friends & relatives for the weekend and his good lady wife was conducting a preservice check on the breakfast table. She called to the maid, "Did you lay the table?" The maid replied, "Yes Ma am, I laid it first thing this morning.""Very well done," the Lady of the house retorted, "Now if you would please announce 'Breakfast is served' and jam open the French windows to let in the smell of the rose garden."
Alan and I didn't want anyone to see what we had found in the old natural history museum vaults until we were good and ready to make the announcement.But the invited guests to the unveiling were turning up to early so I had too inform Al d' hide the specimen jar.

This line of punning has me in a bit of a pickle.We're going to have to know our onions if we're going to find a way to a new line.AHha! That's it, 'onions', of course, we can move on now rather than vegetate on the preserves.

That jarring thought made me steaming mad. I'll put a lid on it though.
And here's my seal of approval.
Is this what Cinco de Mayo is all about???

I see that Odyn has been very busy lately!
Ohhh, I say! Over 300k views of this thread. Can you believe there can be sew many people who are knitty enough follow this tangled web of words we weave? Of course it is our very own Demo who can lay claim to inaugurating this pearl in the crown of the TNS forum. It may make some people cross at times, even give them the needle, but obviously it amuses some and perhaps has some in stitches occasionally.As we near the third of a million views, I wonder if an award is looming on the horizon.Oh brother, we must invite a singer to the ceremony.

Quote from: demografx on 08/05/2014 22:03:50Nikola Tesla(worked briefly for Thomas Edison)He was used by Edison only during the preliminary days. Edison didn't want to be around when the switch was thrown, in case it all went disastrously wrong. He would shout his orders in pigeon Serbian from a safe distance, "Nikola, test la bulb now."

I wasn't going to mention that, but since you've brought it up.......... Let's just say I'm not so sure the good lady would have been exactly enthralled. Apparently it had a faint odour of moth balls. Are you sure it was 'new'?
