    You're on a slippery slope there
    It's only a bit of sport, Mun. Relax and enjoy the racing.

    Fantastic, had a proper laugh at this

    On the other hand if he goes against the curve and wins big in the first week he could be in Yellow come July...

    Trying to think of a pun about him being in green but can't quite get there
  • ddraverddraver Posts: 21,053
    Can he turn green into yellow with age?

    Explains some of his more fruity celebrations.

    Needs to be carful with his hands in future...
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 52,567 Lives Here
    Needs to step it up soon or he'll be skinned alive.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 52,567 Lives Here
    Though I'm sure he finds the prospect of being the big name apeeling.

    He wouldn't want to peel in the sun either.

    Presumably he'll be comfortable on Sundaes....

    Certainly no room to monkey about.

    I'll stop now.

    Don't have a pop at Rick, he might be thin-skinned

    With humour like this, we should be in the Banana cake stop part of the forum.

    Not sure. A bit split on that one.

    Look I get it. No one wants to see a naked banana. I mean, it just lacks appeal....

    Cavendish would have done better if he had gone to Sundae school.

    Don't go round plantain ideas like that in people's heads.

    It's all been downhill since he started checking out Peta's knickerbocker glories.

    Believe that a farther shore
    Is reachable from here.

    Well I'd still fancy his chances in a bunch sprint. I'd even have a fyffer on it.

    Ironic that he doesn't even like bananas.

    The Vikings are coming!

    If Cavendish is really finished, he will only be able to afford holidays in a banana republic.

    Peeling myself laughing. Exceptional effort all round. How appropriate for a banana republic native.
