Good for that site. Now show me the damn article.

A chubby boy in the guise of a 19th century mountain guide sits on a sedan chair with his accordion; from time to time and for no reason, he pops on a false beard, then pops it off again, the elastic cutting into his cheeks. A sly, fastidious man is half-introduced. His name is Snork, he says, or Stark or Hark or Bark or Snark-it's impossible to hear him until the music stops; at which moment, I catch only the end of his sentence "... and so this is where they invented meringue.'"

Am I drunk? Or not drunk enough?

Reading that article is akin to trying to film Tristram Shandy.

The Brett episode I enjoy the most is The Master Blackmailer. There wasn't much original material to work with and it seemed to me the author of the script actually captured the spirit and expanded the story to a long episode.

Excellent show partly because there is time to explore all the characters

It just needs some Gillian Anderson, and it'll work out okay.

Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle? Or Billy-Bob Conan Doyle from down the way?

The site wanted my cookies but they can get their own damn cookies. I closed the tab, too bad for them.

I've got a black belt in baritsu, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies.

Unusual? Not for a Red Bull event.

How much money is Red Bull spending lately? It seems like they've been in the news a lot recently.

Holy shiat, they were actual proper mopeds!

I actually removed my glasses and cleaned them before a second attempt at reading that headline.

That was beautiful, man.

Reading that was like a constipated mind fart... in a good way.

DeepDownHounds: Why don't you set your phaser on shut up?


Mr. Show is more of wet mind fart... also in a good way.

ftfa: I've been riding the funicular with Colonel Moran-some kind of "lottery shipper" from nearby Lausanne (really, really). Amidst all the eccentricity, he stands out as one of the most devotedly out to lunch.

Well, he does need to get a brain.

That silly warning isn't their idea. It's due to E.U. and U.K. law, although many U.K. sites are not in compliance (1,2).
