So what have you spotted on this topic?
To get us started:

That "Military Wives" song which contains the line "light up my life, my Prince of Peace" that'll be the guy who usually reverts to a General Purpose Machine gun and handgrenades to "light things up" and bring about some peace then...

    Classic example of how the written word can be expressionless at times esp on the internet... I come from a family with a background of military service. Go figure!

    Err, no, it's up to you to say what you mean, not us to guess it.

    Is there anything you don't get offended by? Are you one of them health and safety officers?

    He could have chosen not to join the Army....... If you become a soldier, sailor or pilot it's irresponsible and naive to not think that at some time you may be required to kill or be killed. That's what the military does. Anyway back to ( almost) the topic.

    I find it ironic that every thread on every forum (including this one, it would appear) about Christmas - a time supposedly about goodwill to all, peace on earth etc - descends into a good old shouting match and general purple-faced rage. Can't we have a funny thread about the time Nana farted like a fat dog after too many sprouts?*

    Humbug, you set of ba*tards!!! :lol:

    *True story - she died not long afterwards and the stench on that day made me believe she wanted one of us to go first.

    I knew exactly what you were getting at Red, I just thought I'd stay out of this as, being an emotive subject, and as with other threads, there's always some who don't agree and make their feelings known rather aggressivley.

    And I forgot to add the smiley at the end of my first post :D

    I asked the wife what she would like for Christmas this year?
    She said -"Oh,something to make me look nice when I`m out with the girls"
    So,I`ve bought her an iron.
    Now that`s irony.
    Whats the solution? Just pedal faster you baby.

    I was doing Christmas shopping with a friend and he said "you don't understand irony do you?". Which I thought was ironic as we were stood in a bus shelter at the time

    I have to admit, I spent about 15 seconds thinking "what on earth?"
    After the penny dropped, I had had tears of laughter rolling down my face. :D

    Just reminded by that photo - a mate when I was at university was ironing his trousers just before putting them on, which (obviously) meant he wasn't wearing trousers. He managed to run the iron across both his legs (not just one), earning himself the nickname "Ninja" for his astonishingly slow reflexes. Which was a bit ironic.

    Glad you said that as there will be people who won't get past the "what on earth" stage : :D

    Oh yes! Traffic jam when you're already late on your way to a conference on traffic congestion would be better (but doesn't scan too well) :)
