Excellent reference.

You're a load of useless bloddy loonies!
 
2008-05-09 11:39:17 AM  
what's this a reference to?
 
2008-05-09 11:41:54 AM  
Hullo Swindon, hullo Swindon.

Yes, we've got you on instruments...

It's never a bad time for a HHGTTG reference.

Good jorb!

What about Dentists? Oh yeah, right.

I must not get the reference. I've never heard of Euorpe.

Nice one, subby.
 
2008-05-09 11:59:19 AM  
Subby, you made my day.
 
2008-05-09 11:59:39 AM  
Euorpe is a small, bastardized country within Europe. Right next to Eruope and Igrope.
 
2008-05-09 12:00:12 PM  
Awesome headline, Go Subby!

I'm glad at least one of the space agencies on that continent is doing it right. The British opposition to human spaceflight is just dumb, pure and simple.

/Oh, and +1 subby, nice work there. :-)
 
2008-05-09 12:00:59 PM  
Well done, subby. This day is better now.
 
2008-05-09 12:01:05 PM  
*Raises index fingers of both hands to the sky...*

Yep, that's a 6 for subby.

Some Bass Playing Guy: Hullo Swindon, hullo Swindon.

Have you got another big ladder, another bit of ladder? I don't think we're quite at the Moon yet, but I can see right over the top of the houses! Fantastic!

Tresser: what's this a reference to?

As mentioned, it's a Hitchiker's Guide reference to the people aboard the Ark Ship, the Golgafrinchans.

/Thank you wikipedia for their race, I've always called them the Ark People.
 
2008-05-09 12:03:22 PM  
And hopefully, if the spacecraft crashes, there will be enough lemon-soaked towelettes for all! God forbid if anyone aboard a crashed vessel has sticky hands.
 
2008-05-09 12:07:40 PM  
nice, subby!
 
2008-05-09 12:08:52 PM  
I want to be the 42nd post to this thread, so full of win.
Oh, wait.
/Belgium!
 
2008-05-09 12:09:38 PM  
Well done, subby. It's clear that you know where your towel is.

I think you ought to know I'm feeling very depressed.....
 
2008-05-09 12:10:48 PM  
just what color SHOULD fire be?

/can it be nasally inserted?
 
2008-05-09 12:10:57 PM  
Don't forget your towel.


/shakes fist @ Tillmaster...

Tillmaster: Well done, subby. It's clear that you know where your towel is.

yep, subby is a real hoopy frood.

Beautify Europe. Strap her to the luggage rack. And use His Majesty The Love Tampon for fuel.

+0 subby. +1 and -1 added together is +0. Reasons for all are obvious

They're going to need to send some waiters up there, bistromathics doesn't just spontaneously happen.
 
2008-05-09 12:17:13 PM  
But then we'll all die when a plague starts up on the phones and wipes us out...
 
2008-05-09 12:18:56 PM  
Wait a minute, what if a giant mutant star goat devours the planet before I get a spot on the shuttle?!
 
2008-05-09 12:26:33 PM  
We'll need to form a committee to find a soap mine.

Well, played, Subby. No Vogon poetry for you.
 
2008-05-09 12:36:32 PM  
Might be time for them to start stocking up on leaves then eh?
 
2008-05-09 12:39:05 PM  
So is the fire to be fitted nasally?
 
2008-05-09 12:41:22 PM  
And the name of the spaceship is "Indestructible II"
What happened to Indestructible I?
Oh, it fell apart

If they don't start soon, there won't be enough British-English speaking aliens by the time Dr. Who gets out there.
 
2008-05-09 12:44:48 PM  
Breaking news, can't apply until 19th May. I was beginning to wonder what I was going to do with my Biology degree...this sounds perfect!

Look, you're British, so scale it down a bit, alright?

I wanna work in a shoe shop, discover shoes that have never been discovered! Right in the back of the shop on the left....

Nobody warned me about the approach of the Giant Space Goat. Nevermind, ginandtonix all around
 
2008-05-09 01:12:10 PM  
Was there ever really such a thing as telephone sanitizers?
 
2008-05-09 01:13:29 PM  
I was getting into Detroit from Vegas, and as I was walking to the door, I saw one of the Metro Airport cleaning crew actually wiping down the payphones. I didn't think those people really existed.
Made me think of this headline!
Next time, I'll probably turn into a potted petunia and think "Not again"
