I had to go to work for a few short hours in Hove this AM.
Took me boy with me and that.
Anyhoo, there's this road I have to go down in Hove that had those square speed bumps. They're all over the place in this Brighton bum boy Mecca but especially on the route I take.
This Land Rover in front of me went no quicker than 2 mph over said humps.
So my first question is....why have a 4 by 4 if you are gonna go over speed humps that slow?

My second question is.....cnuts!

Having to watch The National Lottery In It To Win It show.
We like to play along on the red button. Well I don't.
What I don't like to see are the numbers as they are drawn and I've just seen the Thunderball numbers.
I'm not happy.

When you go to a shop counter to get served and they're either talking amongst themselves or aren't interested.
They should be stabbed in the eye with a pen.

When you come home and it's been pissing down with rain on you and you're soaked through and you're greeted by the words....'is it raining out?'
My stock reply is ....'No. I just thought I'd pour a bucket of water over me head before I came indoors. Moron.' Is what I would say if it weren't for the fact she's wirey and has proper upper body strength.

Where has this trend come from of people saying 'welp' on the internet used as a sort of surprised reaction?

Any meek sounding motherf**ker that makes that kind of noise needs a damn good t**ting.

Mad or nah seems to be a new word trend too, annoyingly.

You know what really fecks with my f**ks? My cats. They have a roof over their heads. They're regularly fed. Regularly treated. Does that stop them from deciding to pounce on a poor baby chick that dropped from it's nest before it's carried off into the night for it only to be killed for their sick, sick pleasure and not out of desperation for food as it's poor little screams force feelings of sadness, frustration and helpless upon me? No it does not.

www.google.co.uk, If I have to have restricted access to content because of my locality can the search results not include American shops when I am searching for something to purchase?

It's a cat, it's what it does.

I'm also against the Americanisms, like totally amazeballs am heap against it. Also filler words such as literally, as if I normally mean figuratively unless I state otherwise, to be honest (because I'm normally a lying bastard.)
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

To be honest, I have been known to use 'to be honest' on occasion. I also sometimes find myself putting 'though' in forum posts too often. It's annoying, but not the end of the world though.

Whoever is asking Hodgson if he's going to resign in the middle of a tournament when we've been narrowly beaten by two teams who are ranked above us, and are arguably better than us.

'Addicitng' is a good one, I bloody hate that.

And I also use 'to be honest' and always have too many 'thoughs'. :lol: I often find myself editing a post to remove a 'though' or two. To be honest.

Andy Townsend and Clive Tydesley.

Shouldn't get so upset about it but I really wish someone would kick these t**ts off the planet.
