Thank you all for the giggles and especially to those who took this seriously. Those bods get a free ban hammer pass.
Now weapons free in the hole.
A and M
I've had a look for informed articles which might substantiate this, but couldn't see anything.
To be honest, I don't remember ever having heard of this when I was reading German at University and doing an option in Modern German History.
Having said that, there are some suggestions that this has been done to other major world figures, as you can see.
Its nice to be crude, offensive, and funny all in the same sentence, without censor and incoming vile criticism and wibble from the usual suspects.
How would he explain how Hitler lived off biscuits brown, corned beef and Bovril ?I mean come on. Really?
"I say Perkins, got a really dangerous mission for you. Probably suicidal, what?! Want you to jump in a kite, pop over to Sausageland, steal one of Adolph's turds and then bring it back over here for those boffin Johnnies to have a shufti at. Alright? Any questions? No? Jolly good. Carry on that man."
Now if Perkins has half an ounce of sense between his ears whilst he may well pop over to Sausageland, he'll then lie very low, eat some Hun grub for a couple of days, curl one out, bag it and come home for tea and medals. And it would have how much effect on the outcome of the war overall?
I think I now have the answer I need. Can't wait to let the lads and lasses at the pub know my findings. #reallyexcited.
As a result, I'm happy to hoof it, and indeed have done so, to the hole.
A good observstion, thanks. However I do have a psychological advantage in that holding a mod cloak, some members are a bit wary of laying into me.
Having said that, as a mod, I am allowed, and in fact expected, to be able to enjoy the site as a normal user and as such, those that have posted with me over the years know that they can rip into me with no fear of comeback if I'm being a bit moronic.
That's different than having a sly dig of course.
Point of order Mr Speaker.
If Arte_et_Marte is moronic, how would he recognise a sly dig?
He'd probably take it as a compliment.
