What's so special about this lamp post??

Why the hell aren't we hearing about the thousands of lamp posts knocked over in Sri Lanka, or Thailand?? Don't they matter just as much??

Don't you care??

/(you figure it out)

i didn't realize the brits also called them tornados. i thought they had stupid names for normal things over there. maybe they don't call them twisters. they're probably spinners.
 
2004-12-29 01:51:06 PM
Nooooooo!!!

I heard the US has sent $100 million in relief funds so far...
 
2004-12-29 01:52:28 PM
I'm really gonna miss that lamp post.

/wipes tear from eye
 
2004-12-29 01:52:43 PM
Nice job guys, took it straight to asshat level inside of 3 posts.
 
2004-12-29 01:53:11 PM
quick, take it to the begining of time in the land of narnia and plant a new one!

I not do it... ask rabbit.

"A Met Office spokesman said tornadoes could be so localised they only affect one or two streets."

now thats some precision tornadoing.

Lomis: I heard the US has sent $100 million in relief funds so far...


I heard this Norwegian guy from the United Nations was complaining that Western nations were stingy and not responding to this lamp post crisis appropriately.

He also said that our taxes should be raised, so that our governments could contribute more.

/Fark the u.n.

When somebody talks to you in Welsh, it counts as a downpour.
 
2004-12-29 01:54:20 PM
hallo lamp post, watcha knowin?
 
2004-12-29 01:55:41 PM
Where will the Welsh prostitutes hang out now ?

I not do it either!

The headline is Welsh read:

this headline is funny. i am a bad person.

there was a mini tornado in so cal last night, and my dad was craping himself scared about it...i guess it comes with a lifetime in south dakota...

We had an awesome line of storms hit in the Sierra foothills northeast of Fresno yesterday. For about 20 minutes or so the rain was horizontal, debris was flying, and the wind made a really cool sound. Then it was gone.

weather radar just showed a yellow band of activity that moved over us real fast. Freaky.

Sought for questioning:
 
2004-12-29 02:07:11 PM
Somebody should post a link to that website with the chair knocked over.
 
2004-12-29 02:09:06 PM
Would that be a sun roof and windshield in english?

Mini whale knockes over lampost in Tornado.

2004-12-29 02:10:13 PM
darn - no trailer parks.

and no one said "....and it sounded lak a frate-trane comin down tha street."

American tornadoes as a rule seem to target rednecks. Welsh tornadoes target light poles.

Where are all the Welsh rednecks?

Oz?
 
2004-12-29 02:11:13 PM
I figured it would be spelled 'lamp poste' being that we are talking about Wales.

(geek, read em all.)


That was my first thought as well.

In other news, a bunch of hooligans knocked over a dustbin in Shaftsbree. Or however the fark that's spelled.

The hooligans are loose!

/Hicks.
 
2004-12-29 02:13:35 PM
Hahahaha, stuff like this makes me laugh. If you have never had your house destroyed because a majority of your neighbors home was blown into it by a tornado, then you have no right to complain about some stupid ass flying shingles that went through your sun roof of your car.
 
2004-12-29 02:14:02 PM
Is a mini-tornado like a dust-devil? Here in Joke-lahoma we aint even gonna make a trip to the root cellar over yonder lessin' it's at least an F3. full of dogs with bees in their mouths.
 
2004-12-29 02:18:11 PM
We call them microbusts. They are sideways tornados.
 
2004-12-29 02:18:16 PM
OMGOMGOMG
 
2004-12-29 02:18:22 PM


Perhaps he was drunk.
 
2004-12-29 02:21:45 PM
Thank goodness no celebrities were injured, although the lamp post used to hit this:
 
2004-12-29 02:26:47 PM
Yeah, a micro burst. We get them a few times in Mass. during the spring and summer. It becomes a tornado in Wales because the most interesting thing to do there is watch your car bumpers rust.
 
2004-12-29 02:27:07 PM
No one knows what it's liiiiike, to be a lamp post, in Waaaales, with hooo-li-gaaaaans
 
2004-12-29 02:30:37 PM
graveleye:
darn - no trailer parks.

and no one said "....and it sounded lak a frate-trane comin down tha street."

American tornadoes as a rule seem to target rednecks. Welsh tornadoes target light poles.

Where are all the Welsh rednecks?


That's the whole problem. The angry Tornado God must have aluminum to be appeased. Here in Orlando, you might just as well put wings on a trailer and wait to get airborne, cuz its a comin', just you wait.

Oz?

Naw that's where all the aluminum goes. Remember the movie?
 
2004-12-29 02:32:34 PM
Where ther a tribe of Pikeys in Caravans staying in Wales that night?

/Do you know the meaning of the word Nemesis?
 
2004-12-29 02:44:13 PM

Would be sought for questioning...if he weren't dead.

/Don't need no stinkin' ticket...my table's reserved.
 
2004-12-29 02:52:02 PM
At least it wasn't the hooligans this time.

/no one knows what it's like...to be a lamp post...in Wales...with hooligans
//Bill Hicks is rolling in his grave after this post
 
2004-12-29 02:53:40 PM
Kyouzo,
I was waiting for a Bill Hicks reference. Nice job!

What's so special about this lamp post??




/ It wasn't this one.
 
2004-12-29 03:01:54 PM
Hold on folks.

"We also had a tree and a lamp post blown down."

Let's not forget about the tree, people.

 
2004-12-29 03:02:16 PM
This is proof that even God hates Wales.
 
2004-12-29 03:03:44 PM
Well that must've blown.
 
2004-12-29 03:04:00 PM
Almost as good as the Hooligans knocking over a Dustbin in Shaftsbry...

/miss Bill Hicks...
 
2004-12-29 03:05:36 PM
i bet it was the town drunk.
 
2004-12-29 03:08:35 PM
