Eh? Guess it's a british thing.

A plague on both your houses!
2005-04-09 10:27:41 AM  
That'll show 'em.

Do you bite your thumb at me, sir?
2005-04-09 12:40:20 PM  
Aye, I bite my thumb at thee. What of it, cur?

I used the wrong Shakespeare quote. I should have said:

Double double toil and trouble...

I can supply the goats and pentagrams if someone can throw in a couple of virgins.

Just stay away from guys named "Phil" at parties in Islington. That's all I have to say.

But officer, I was only breaking the law for five minutes.

I think it's an excellent sociological study: are trendy, post-modernist snobby jaded Englishmen still just as superstitious as the grubby little natives?

This could be as much fun for the tabloids as "Tutankamen's Curse" was in an earlier generation. Every bad or even mildly unpleasant thing that happens to their meter maids should get page 1 exposure.

After a year or so, the town council will be begging the witches to take the curse off. Or threatening, which could be even funnier.

Farkeologist wins, thread over :)

Oh no, pasty-white goths have cursed the parking department.

What ever should we do?

I was hoping for some blushing, massively cleavaged maidens, not the spotty, socially inept male variety.

Well, once you start cutting into them, massave cleavage shouldn't be a problem.

sorry for taking up space, couldn't resBoobiesing this, seen it millions of times and it still cracks me up.

BEDEVERE: Tell me, what do you do with witches?
VILLAGER #2: Burn!
CROWD: Burn, burn them up!
BEDEVERE: And what do you burn apart from witches?
VILLAGER #1: More witches!
VILLAGER #2: Wood!
BEDEVERE: So, why do witches burn?
VILLAGER #3: B--... 'cause they're made of wood...?
CROWD: Oh yeah, yeah...
BEDEVERE: So, how do we tell whether she, is made, of wood?
VILLAGER #1: Build a bridge out of her.
BEDEVERE: Aah, but can you not also build bridges out of stone?
VILLAGER #2: Oh, yeah.
BEDEVERE: Does wood sink in water?
VILLAGER #1: No, no.
VILLAGER #2: It floats! It floats!
VILLAGER #1: Throw her into the pond!
CROWD: The pond!
BEDEVERE: What also floats in water?
VILLAGER #1: Bread!
VILLAGER #2: Apples!
VILLAGER #3: Very small rocks!
VILLAGER #1: Cider!
VILLAGER #2: Great gravy!
VILLAGER #1: Cherries!
VILLAGER #3: Churches -- churches!
VILLAGER #2: Lead -- lead!
ARTHUR: A duck.
CROWD: Oooh.
BEDEVERE: Exactly! So, logically...,
VILLAGER #1: If... she.. weighs the same as a duck, she's made of
BEDEVERE: And therefore--?
VILLAGER #1: A witch!

95% of those traffic wardens are from Nigeria and probably 100% superstitious.
