PMSL! Visions of John Wayne Bobbit spring to mind!

I've always been curious as to why 'it' is referred to as an 'old fella' Is it a wrinkle thing? Not that I have any of those... just sayin' ;)

This reminds me of a really bad, old joke.

A woman buys a magic, flying willy which responds to verbal commands.

She takes it out of the box and says "Flying willy my mimsy." It goes hell for leather for her mimsy.

She says "Flying willy my mouth." and it goes for her mouth.

After a while she gets a bit tired of this and shouts "Flying willy stop!" but it doesn't. She runs from her house pursued by the flying willy and makes for the local police station.

At the desk she wails "Officer! I'm being attacked by a flying willy which won't stop!"

He says "Flying willy my arse!"







I'll get my coat. :oops:

Sorry mate. I thought as this was the introduction forum that we could let go a little and have a bit of a laugh.

I'm not doing very well here, am I? :oops:

I didn't mean to offend anyone.

I must say that if pushed for an opinion, I'd probably say I also found her acceptable in that.

Perhaps I should watch it a few more times just to make sure.
Since you're so obsessed with your thread length I had to pop in here and make it longer (but I will for CHRLZ too so not sure it will help the contest) LOL

Have you been able to confirm the hypotheses about Milla being acceptable in the Fifth element?

I noticed the "thermal bandages" apparel never really caught on after that movie but I'd have no objection to women with figures like hers dressing that way, except at work (too distracting)!

Cheers!

Welcome to RU WhyNot?

Oh, wait, you invited me here... Well, welcome anyway :lol:

And because of that fact, I decided to contribute to your "Hello" thread. Sorry Rich, Chrlz and m0r, next time :)

p.s. When you win the competition, I get 5% of the pie, sounds reasonable, no?

Mmmmmmm....


Pie.....


BTW, anyone here know what a Ned Kelly Pie is (Why Not? should), and the black art of creating a real one? I should start a thread, but it's already been done at BAUT....

I'll have a guess at the Ned Kelly pie thing

Is it a pie enwrapped in metal with only eyeholes?

So it would sorta look like you if I pulled your 'at darn o'er yon 'ead? :D

Good guess. But no. In fact i'm not really sure if there is any link to dear Ned the metal-suited outlaw - in fact I would be most surprised if there is. I think it's just a supposed Orstralyan invention, hence the choice of a suitable moniker. It's possibly not even an Oz invention, either. I'll bet somebody else did it first. But if you ever get to consume a *good* one, your life will be different thenceforth, assuming you have any gastronomical acumen and an appreciation of simple savoury pastry products...

But I digress! So, may I say welcome again, Why Not?! And if anyone asks why I have distracted this thread, I say - Why Not?..

Oh, and the answer is not 3.14159265359...

That's because it's 'Rosebud'

So a Ned Kelly pie is a kinda druggie thing? Or are you just being Epicurean about the grub?

I learned of good ol' Ned from Comic books - good idea wrapping yourself in metal, apart from the heat that is.

Harumph! 'kinda druggie thing' indeed! Yes, it's *highly* epicurean, and antipodean also..

A Ned Kelly pie is a meat pie, but with an egg inside the pastry. They may also include a little bacon, [i]but the real trick is that the egg must be *just* cooked but still with a runny yolk[/b]. It's VERY difficult to do that - sadly most Ned Kelly's contain what is effectively a hard-boiled egg - yuck - a terrible tragedy. I believe I know how to do it, but haven't yet refined the technique - indeed I am thinking about running a research project on the process and then presented a report in an appropriate peer-reviewed journal...


Anyway, that offtopic wandering has now ensured that Why Not?'s welcome thread is now longer than mine, and hopefully he'll be satisfied.. :P
