Topless darts..
2003-05-15 02:52:11 PM  
And its about time they returned!!
2003-05-15 02:54:06 PM  
That's gotta be hell on implants.
2003-05-15 02:54:30 PM  
Where did the top of the dart go?
2003-05-15 02:57:14 PM  
I want to see Topless Jarts!

/let the carnage begin
2003-05-15 02:58:08 PM  
I am against any form of entertainment which maim boobies.

But I am also for any form of entertainent which involves girls being topless.

Arghhhhh can't decide whether I like this idea or not!
2003-05-15 02:59:36 PM  
Will TPT be one of the news bunnies?
2003-05-15 02:59:38 PM  
This station sounds like a riot. I tells ya, If I had a TV, and a subscription to cable, and lived in England, and was pretty drunk, I would watch that channel.

You have to give them credit for being the first weather network to actually confess that:

We used to shoot them in batches so they were three weeks only anyway and it was just luck if the forecast actually coincided with the weather.
2003-05-15 03:00:16 PM  
Bouncing weather dwarfs were a major milestone in British TV. Their weather forecasts will be five years old now. We used to shoot them in batches so they were three weeks only anyway and it was just luck if the forecast actually coincided with the weather

I think the 5 yr old dwarf predictions are about as accurate as the local weathermen's predictions.
2003-05-15 03:00:56 PM  
How about topless Lawn Darts? I wonder why they stopped selling those.
2003-05-15 03:01:36 PM  

Similar idea, you beat me by 8 secs doh!

"Hips, Lips, Nips, and Tips"
2003-05-15 03:03:25 PM  
Sorry. Next time we have a similar idea, you get to say it first.

"Bouncing weather dwarfs were a major milestone in British TV."
2003-05-15 03:04:23 PM  
One wild throw and there would be silicone all over the studio.

Of course, this would answer the are old question, "Are those real?"
2003-05-15 03:09:24 PM  
Hmm, I would always open with a double-top if that was here.

Sniff, I'm moving back to Limeyland

"Most famous of all was the news bunny, a giant rabbit that popped up on screen during news broadcasts to give a cheery thumbs-up or a po-faced thumbs down depending on the news."

And the Fark Link Approver gives this link a:

Eeeek, Janet Street Porter. If there was one bullet left in the world, I would want her to get it.
2003-05-15 03:10:36 PM  
Anyone read the original link?

All I have to say is "Badgers? We don need no stinkin badgers!"
2003-05-15 03:10:58 PM  
The thought of being topless with pointy objects being thrown around makes me nervous, on the other hand, it's not like a shirt and bra is going to offer that much protection. I can't decide.
2003-05-15 03:12:09 PM  
And for the Laydez, let's not forget the timeless "Lunchbox Volleyball"
2003-05-15 03:12:20 PM  
I think this was the same channel that had a newsreader called Vinda LuLu. She would start reading the news while eating a hot curry and, of course, would have to slowly strip off because of the heat. Quality television.

And right here we see a front of topless midgets moving in from the South.
2003-05-15 03:13:21 PM  
Gromsky: Jarts probably got banned because of some stupid kids ruining it for the rest of us.

Tarts with Darts
2003-05-15 03:14:36 PM  
GIS for topless darts



Possibly NSFW
2003-05-15 03:19:00 PM  
If darts are designed to be observed horizontally, and they are also designed to be symetrical around its horizontal axis, which part is the top?
2003-05-15 03:20:46 PM  
05-15-03 02:51:52 PM Heavyarms04

Heh, I'd watch that.
2003-05-15 03:21:22 PM  
Wow, I messed up. Never mind I'm to lazy to fix it anyways. :)
2003-05-15 03:23:34 PM  
You mean which part is the topless?
2003-05-15 03:24:13 PM  
The part with the icing, of course.

The flight is the top, then the shaft, then the barrel, then the tip, due to the fact that you always carry them points down.

BTW, I know you were just being facetious
2003-05-15 03:25:11 PM  
Any activity which begins with the word 'topless' is a winner in my book.

Like the topless nursing home talent show?

Topless tarts / topless darts
2003-05-15 03:32:09 PM  
I wonder if they are insured against acciental boobie deflation. Either that or have kevlar implants.

"BTW, I know you were just being facetious"

I heart DrunkenLimeyBastard for using the word facetious.
2003-05-15 03:38:13 PM  

pop the balloons!

i have no more topless dart inuendos.​elessrec ords&include=0&since=-1&sort=3&rows=25
2003-05-15 03:42:26 PM  
I would go for the bulls-eye
2003-05-15 03:44:39 PM  

( for those that are ignorant is the highest score possible 3 treble 20's)
2003-05-15 03:46:38 PM  
gives new meaning to 'double out'

Okay, between this thread and the Guiness thread I'm really longing to get to the pub, but I gotta work late.

2003-05-15 03:57:45 PM  
Three in a bed. mmmmmmmmmm
2003-05-15 04:10:11 PM  
I want to see topless air hockey. Those things would be flying all over the place.
2003-05-15 04:12:59 PM  
L!ve TV was at the same time the most pointless thing on TV, and at the same time, one of the best reasons to get cable. It was a sad day when it went off air and got replaced by some crap like Lifestyle-UK.

I mean there's plenty enough channels filled with history shows and infomercials that get about three viewers a day, there's surely comparitively huge revenue potential in topless darts and the other fun activities :D
So long as they can come up with some other suitably varied new stuff.
2003-05-15 04:13:16 PM  
2003-05-15 04:18:51 PM  
I second Mr. Jones' idea of the air hockey!


2003-05-15 04:32:49 PM  
I have no desire to see topless darts. Those guys spend all their time in pubs, have you seen the size of some of those hairy bellies? Keep those shirts on, say I...
2003-05-15 04:39:00 PM  
2003-05-15 04:39:53 PM  
Above link is SFW by the way.
2003-05-15 05:02:13 PM  
Finally! A link about my fav game and BOOBIES!!

Darn shame we don't get that channel in the States.

I'd 9 hit it.

(For the non-darters: A "9-hitter" is a perfect shot in the game of Cricket... 3 darts in the triple of a scoring number, thus 9 hits or counts)
2003-05-15 05:23:03 PM  
Who the hell are letting seagulls into strip joints??
And why are the tourists all strippers??

These descendants of the dinosaurs and stars of Alfred Hitchcock's shocker The Birds stand accused of building nests in gutters, stealing pasties from tourists, terrorising workmen, striking bystanders on the street and making a noise.
2003-05-15 05:28:07 PM  
Help the Dopeless Tarts! Send drug money today!
2003-05-15 05:41:50 PM  
Careful, you'll put somones eye out with those things.
2003-05-15 05:46:47 PM  
L!VE TV kicked ass,

Topless darts and Strip Masterbrain were classic. Not to mention lunch box volley ball. All pointless smut and all the better for it.
2003-05-15 10:26:42 PM  
"Stuttering newsreaders"?

Please revive this channel and beam it to North America. Please!
2003-05-16 01:58:00 AM  
A topless dart?
2003-05-16 02:33:57 AM  
yeah i was gonna say.. i don't see how topless darts and badgers trying to eat an old man's face were related.. but now i see.. someone farked up.
2003-05-16 07:24:46 AM  
I miss Tiffany's Big City Tips.

Best investment advice ever.
2003-05-16 11:40:41 AM  
I've seen those girls on LiveTV play darts and I can tell you they are totally useless. I've never played darts and I reckon I can beat any of them on a bad day.
