  1. I cannot abide lamb or mutton in any form, I've even been known to leave the house to escape the cooking smell. and liquorice - urgh!
  2. ^^ Probably the comment of someone who thinks "2 Pints of Lager" is a hilarious romp! Lighten up, we're not above parody any more than anyone else! He's making fun of people from Yorkshire too you know....
  3. Ok am prepared for the onslaught here, but I would have to say one of the most annoying songs ever is The Drugs Don't Work by The Verve. Dirge.... Or anything by The Beautiful South (special mention for Perfect 10 - urgh!)
  4. What are you talking about, that song was fab! Lithuania's most successful entry ever I believe! Yes I know, sad sad sad! Sorry

    Dodgy Song Lyrics

    I would be a bit surprised to say the least! Though I've never had such an experience, and I don't think I fall into the same category as Shakira

    Dodgy Song Lyrics

    Shakira's 'classic' - "Lucky that my breasts are small and humble, so you don't confuse them with mountains" Is that a common problem??
  7. At the risk of being redirected swiftly to the drunk zone, is it not a tad conceited to expect everyone to know where we are?!?! Does it really mak much odds??? (Though I have to point out to Medziotojas, not only can I point out Lithuania, I can hum the anthem decently on a good night too !!)
  8. Scoop is by far the cheapest place I've found Blue Dragon Sweet Chili Sauce, think it was about 60p cheaper than anywhere else I'd seen!
  9. Now come du Njugle, du kens perfectly weel it's 'phat'!
  10. I'm really not sure education about food/exercise is the only issue when it comes to obesity and overeating. I bet of all the people you know, it's the overweight ones who best know the nutritional stats of most foods in the house!!! You can have all the education in the world but without willpower or the right mindset it will make no difference. Anyone who has tried to lose weight will know how soul destroying it can be! I, for one, know perfectly well that if I have that fish supper/chicken korma it's going to be sticking around on the hips for a while. I know that sitting watching Corrie is a less healthy option than if I was to go for a walk, swim, cycle etc - yet here I am still with far too much junk in my trunk! Albeit I am actively trying to do something about it.......
  11. I was under the impression even obese people paid their stamp/taxes? A lot of A&E cases are self inflicted - does that lessen their right to treatment? If someone injures themselves playing sport I don't see people complaining about their taxes going towards their treatment.
  12. What scintillating company you must keep, that your lunch is spent counting fat people???
  13. Apart from the Ness of course...........
  14. Must have been the same one that called Njugle, that called me. The conversation consisted of "Hello I was wondering if you have any problems with your Sky TV" "Eh, we don't have Sky" "Sorry to have troubled you" ...click. Highly odd.
  15. Is du going for personal independance then? The republic of Sheepshagger?
  16. Out of what? It's misguided to thinks that Scots are going to rule us any better from Holyrood than they already do from Westminster!! The Nats seem to have some Utopian view of independence which seems unlikely to say the least.
  17. Derick du does seem ta hae a tendency ta (intentionally??) misquote Never said it didna did I? I just dunna happen ta tink (personally speaking) dat I'm gyaan ta be ony better aff being ruled fae Edinburgh as opposed ta London, because ta baith o dem wir not gyaan ta be high on da agenda. Not dat I tink Shetland independance is a guid idea idder, in fact I tink it wid be a total want-o-wit. I just strongly disagree wi ony form o nationalism as dir's aye someeen dat'll tak it dat bit too far, den you hay problems.
  18. How about Human? Earthling? Who cares!!!! If I'm introducing myself I tend to use my name, rather than ethnicity. And why is it so much worse to be British than Scottish? Both have their own points of shame and pride surely?
  19. I was rendered speechless the first time I saw Ewan MacGregor's Davidoff advert - I thought better of him!
  20. Will'o'the Wisp Pigeon Street Bagpuss The Family Ness (absolute classic!) Chucklevision
  21. I must confess, when presented with a box of Quality Street, I always think them a poor substitute for Roses, or better still Celebrations! They're nearly the chocolate equivalent of socks
  22. I can't say it offended me particularly, I thought it quite funny, so it must have just been one of those useless things that stick in the mind! I suffer badly with those.....
  23. He said the song 'My Beautiful Cousin' was the bridal march at Shetland weddings!
  24. Having looked at those two pictures he looks more ill in the 'after' shot! Just because we're so used to seeing him huge I suppose. But good for him, he's done well
