You know, I think I'll abruptly stop the wages of the guys who LIVE WITH ME and then go for a swim with one without anyone else around!!!

Help me if you can
I've got to get back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
You'd be surprised
There's so much to be done
Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh

There is no way that home is 1,000 tons, even made of brick. I'd say it's no more than 200,000 pounds!

Oh, bother.

Only in England can you have a house with a resume like "well it once belonged to a beloved children's book author, and then the most debauched member of a world famous rock band"

How the fark can you write an article about a home for sale without saying what the price is?

Two million pounds is NOT the weight of the house.

It is highlighted in the article.

It's a 6 sentence article. You couldn't see where they mention the price? (plus the caption to the picture?)

Yup. Somebody can't read.

About 3.2 million USD. Not cheap, but it looks like a pretty sweet place.

Not very good. The fava beans completely overpowered it.

Nonsense, long-pig foie gras is one of the finest delicacies known to man.

Best enjoyed with a glass of Amarone.

Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
Droops on the little hands little gold head.
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

God bless Mummy. I know that's right.
Wasn't it fun in the bath to-night?
The cold's so cold, and the hot's so hot.
Oh! God bless Daddy - I quite forgot.

If I open my fingers a little bit more,
I can see Nanny's dressing-gown on the door.
It's a beautiful blue, but it hasn't a hood.
Oh! God bless Nanny and make her good.

Mine has a hood, and I lie in bed,
And pull the hood right over my head,
And I shut my eyes, and I curl up small,
And nobody knows that I'm there at all.

Oh! Thank you, God, for a lovely day.
And what was the other I had to say?
I said "Bless Daddy," so what can it be?
Oh! Now I remember it. God bless Me.

Little Boy kneels at the foot of the bed,
Droops on the little hands little gold head.
Hush! Hush! Whisper who dares!
Christopher Robin is saying his prayers.

bulok: Wow 3 bites. Well done.


Honestly, after taking phone calls from the general public as part of a job in what we'll call one of our various elected branches of government, I've come to just presume stupid in pretty much all cases. Even prior, I had generally operated under this presumption:

But I've heard so much batshiat insane stuff that nobody with two brain cells to rub together should believe said in perfect earnestness that I just have a lot of poe's law problems.
