Jizzy Scones!

We refer to Biscuits and Gravy as jizzy scones in my household....whilst tasty we don't have them often due to the arguments about pronunciation.

Happy NukeDay to you! 70 years in the shadow of the bomb post-Trinity

Maybe the Reg should send a reporter to the Atomic Testing museum in Las Vegas. Truly a terrible, terrifying and informative place. Maybe it's just me, but they seem almost cocky about dropping bombs on Japan. Even though it was quite clear that the wind had gone from Japans sails.

Reading anything about the blasts and testing upsets me. Its an avenue best left well alone.

Oh America

dear oh dear oh dear .......a flag, A FUCKING FLAG!

I cannot comprehend you and your dull witted ways.

Maybe, just maybe you should ....um....ban guns.

And for the American NRA idiots don't go giving me second amendment bullshit without first reading what the second amendment is. As owning a gun is not the same as forming a militia to oust the forces of the British monarch. Especially as we have already decided that you are entirely too much bother, heck even the Australians are more favorable. And they, unlike yourselves were the descendants of criminals. Granted you're the decedents of idiots, so like I say, too much bother. Of course we will still happily accept the tax you keep paying for the use of sovereign land. Like I said, idiots.

Re: The response to another mass shooting is to ban.....

to be fair, you could have someones eye out with one, if you waved it particularly roughly.

Or maybe shot it from a cannon.

Basically anything Mexican

If it can be rolled in a burrito or sandwiched in a quesadilla then its totally awesome.

I will also accept Nacho, soft taco or if I am feeling up for a balancing act then tostadita.

Of course if I trusted myself around serious hot oil then chimichanga every day of the week please and thank you.

The traditional recipe from the Land of the Prince Bishops demands that it is the magical garlic sauce that is used, and it must be bought from the dirty shop.

I always wanted a bug - heck I still do.

Although I did have a bright yellow robin estate - clocked at 97MPH on the M1 by the old bill. Simply one of the scariest things I had ever done.

The BBC wants to slap a TAX on EVERYONE in BLIGHTY

ukgnome
Silver badge

Personally I think the BBC is already an expensive pay-per-subscription service. It doesn't listen to its customers and is a bit old hat.

Having said that, I like the BBC - I just think it's an expensive dinosaur. It tries to be everything to everyone and sadly it fails. I don't care for homes under the bargain in my attic type of shows, but I do like Doctor Who.

Maybe go the way of netflix, but premium content online and kill a few digital channels.

aagghhh i just don't know what's best for the old girl.
