Maybe this means that Sam Smith is secretly a penguin....or is that a Furry?

Today I resolve to learn about Furries.

Today I learned that furries are completely head fecked....the ones who take it seriously at least.

today I learnt that dentists are bigger crooks than the building trade.
1 tooth removed & 1 filling for my 22 yr old daughter.
1 hours work

bastids.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

I learnt that Hobbit is genuinely someone's name.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Today I learned that a petard (as in hoist by ones own) was a small bomb. Id always assumed it was a sort of flag.

A mediaeval instrument of war. It's actually a bomb on the end of a pike stick. The lucky man who got to use it lit the fuse ran across the draw bridge dodged the boiling oil, stones and arrows and planted the pike with bomb attached into the castle door hoping to blow it up so the troops could enter the castle.

If he was lucky and the pike was long enough he could retire and watch the explosion. The bomb frequently went off when he slammed it into the door or it went off early etc.

Bit of a suicide mission hence the expression hoisted by his own petard.

 


One more point
