Is Drew still short a garden gnome? Maybe they can send a couple his way.

National clean up Australia day?

Reminds me of a goody two shoes sister that cleans her room, then that means you have to clean yours too.

Quit sucking up to mom, Australia

I, for one, welcome my upside-down overlords...

leopard-print lounge suite

I want it!
2004-03-08 04:16:45 AM  
ok so i tried to find one... i backed down because it was like i found the secret cache of aarkieboy and it wasn't pleasent.
2004-03-08 04:20:16 AM  
Apparently, people are always losing glass eyes. Just about every article about a Lost-and-Found mentions one.
2004-03-08 04:20:27 AM  
Lounge suit? Like a shell suit? But for lounging? Or more of a Elvis in Vegas type of thing?

Still...rather weird thing to lose.

I turned this into them and
they said they'd get it back to
the owner!

This would look so good in my lounge. All I need now is a shower curtain to match my tiger print toilet seat and I'm all set.

2004-03-08 04:31:43 AM  

Oh god eyes, they burn.

In other news, HAHAHA... Yes, life is apparently worth living after all. Woo Hoo. (head still hurts)

Must've been quite a celebration on Saturday. Looks like the luck of the Irish worked out afterall. Either that or the Irish coach threatened to move leopard-print suites into the players homes if they lost!

The only good thing to come out of Australia.

Luck had nothing to do with it, this time. They were just plain better (or wanted it more, for once!) on the day.
That, and the threat of imposing leopard print outfits, is enough to drive any one to victory.....
2004-03-08 04:59:04 AM  
Sorry. Locky's out of his mind. Powderfinger is not a rock band. And they suck.
2004-03-08 05:04:32 AM  
No offense Locky.
2004-03-08 05:05:47 AM  
What about Jet?

2004-03-08 05:08:18 AM  
Binnster. Yes.
2004-03-08 05:21:27 AM  
I defy you to find a man who looks good in leopard print (to a straight woman, that is) Its end up with a Peter Stringfellow in thong style swim trunks image.

With that image seering the eyeballs, twould but you right off.

Emergency eye surgery anyone?
2004-03-08 05:40:51 AM  

Well, thats enough to change ones orientation, thats for sure.

If my eyes weren't still red-ish, they'd deffo be red from seeing that.

You miserable git, made my eyes bleed..... Ok, then, go buy one of these, its a 'leopard print cape'. Perfect for impressing the 'chicks'.

Maybe the socttish rugby team could adapt this? It can't do them any harm..... : )

In terms of putting off the opposition, I think we have a winner! The scrum would look appauling though...

No change there, then.....

Yikes!! By reading this thread I have discovered Enlgand lost to Irish at Twickenham. Damn you, LaughingGremlin
*shakes fist*
2004-03-08 06:28:57 AM  
Touche. To be fair though, Italy have improved remarkably over the last couple of weeks!
2004-03-08 06:42:06 AM  
No Catchy Nickname

Yes, I personally won the match...if I hadn't drank all that beer, worn a too big, ancient, rugby shirt and shouted myself hoarse in a pub, they'd never have done it.
2004-03-08 06:48:27 AM  
Well, Italy have the fanciest shirts (ok..maybe France too) and definately the prettiest players.

But its not suppose to be pretty, is it? Thats what soccer is for.
(no deference to American Girls-Rugby, just that footy to me is GAA)

Oh yeah, if its a consolation, Irish ladies lost 51-19 to England, no leopard skin prints involved, that were visible outside the dressing room anyway.

photoshop theme: leopard-print lounge suite, a glass eye, dentures, a ukulele, garden gnomes, a pay phone, and a safe containing an Australian passport and naturalisation papers.
2004-03-08 08:43:15 AM  
Yes they are and no they don't.

...and Jet are nothing special.
2004-03-08 08:52:37 AM  
Yeaaaahhhh!!! We beat the Irish ladies!!!
What with?

Will they sue?
2004-03-08 08:53:59 AM  
I know someone already said it, but it's worth repeating. Everyone seems to be losing glass eyes.
2004-03-08 09:02:11 AM  
No Catchy Nickname

Hmm, maybe if you are nice and just buy em a beer....they won't rip your bits off with a spoon.

It was 51 - 10 actually, I am a bit obsesed with "19" at the moment...oops. I imagine the english ladies who play rugby are rather more impressive in a scrum, with such a large score line! if that is good news or bad news for the english gent, I can't say.
2004-03-08 09:05:19 AM  
They found an entire suite? Like with a wet bar and stuff? Or just a suit?
2004-03-08 10:05:22 AM  

That sounds like bad news for the English gent who doesn't want to get crushed when his lady rides "horseback" so to speak.
Luckily I have fled the country....
Still, I guess it means we have skilfull hookers...

Who is that guy?

Felicity Shagwell
Peter Stringfellow (if you mean the mousey looking guy with the long straggly hair. He is the owner of a nightclub in London ("Stringfellows") where all the wannabe Paris Hiltons of Britain go. He is also officially the Horse's arse.

When they did this event in Germany, they killed 6 million Jews.

So that's where the hell my ukulele went to.
