    George Johnson: "Here lies George Johnson, hanged by mistake 1882. He was right, we was wrong, but we strung him up and now he's gone."

        Isn't he too busy practicing tantric sex or saving the rainforest or making records with (serial leg-humper) Shaggy to be contributing on our pub talk threads, Herlock??

            Told the Mrs to get me cremated and dump me in the ocean. With any luck I’ll get a free trip around the world along with all the plastic waste.

              I was thinking “ah, Ms D has mistaken String for Sting.” But it was me that made the error.

              Ms D that’s twice I’ve been wrong in the last 5 years! It’s worrying.

                Ha! That's like when I come out of work and see a really badly parked car in the car park and think "what idiot has done that", then realise that it's my car, and I left it like that in the morning!

                  I’m always mislaying stuff in the house then finding the offending object in some area where I’d never think of looking because of course I’d never put anything there! But it’s always an object that no one else has the slightest interest in touching or using. “Who put this here?” It never takes much working out who it could only have been.

                    Well, I'm glad it's not just me!

                      I've always fancied giving Gunther Von Hagens the go-ahead on condition that I'm displayed staring directly at any visitors to the exhibition with my middle fingers raised in a final act of defiance!

                      It'd make a magnificent centrepiece!
