2008 YES!!! The "I'm so happy" thread
« on: November 05, 2008, 03:52:03 PM »
As an antidote to the Moan, Moan, Moan thread, I thought we could also do with a thread for people to share and applaud good news and stuff that might generally cheer everyone up a bit. Let everyone know if something great has happened, congratulate someone on an achievement, etc. Maybe share a good joke you've heard. Yes I know this thread won't get used as much as the moaning thread, but it's here if you do need it.

I'll kick off with a big "Yay!" for the new President Elect of the United States of America. He's got a tough job on his hands clearing up after the incumbent. And as we prepare to say goodbye and good riddance to George W, one of my favourite Bushisms: "The trouble with the French is they don't have a word for 'entrepreneur' "

After a two year visit to the United States, Michelangelo's David is returning to Italy.

His visit to the USA was sponsored by MacDonald, BurgerKing and allied companies.

Paddy, that bloke (?) is jumping to conclusions somewhat. It could have been a McCain supporter wanting it for his garden? At least now the old codger can get back to running his 'oven chip' company in peace.

Cheyney mooched into a meeting in the oval office and remarked to Bush "Three Brazilians were killed in Iraq this morning." Bush collapsed onto his desk, quivering and shaking, turning white as a sheet.

After a time he seemed to pull himself together, raised his head and said to Cheyney "Remind me, just how many IS a brazillion?"

Nope, I don't think anyone misunderestimated him!

Obama backwards is "amabo" which is "I will love". That gives you amabo Obama.

Love that new word, Anthony ... 'misunderestimated' ... I think I married her!

...and did you notice that the words; 'amabo obama' could read; 'I'm a boob am I', if spoken with a Glasgow accent?   :)

Not my opinion, just an observation.

And as we prepare to say goodbye and good riddance to George W, one of my favourite Bushisms: "The trouble with the French is they don't have a word for 'entrepreneur' "

In a year's time we will be playing sad laments for Bush and his (un)intended homour as we endure the alien PC speak of O'Bama ("..disabled and non-disabled Americans..we are and always will be the United States of America"). As Virginia Woolf once said, "Humour is the first of the gifts to perish in a foreign tongue".
Yemen, what a country ... Haraz mountains, Socotra, Sana'a, Hadramaut, the empty quarter.... a country of stunning, mind altering beauty...and the friendliest of people.
