    10th annual Dave's Joke of the Edinburgh Fringe competition

    The full list of shortlisted jokes: I’m not a fan of the new pound coin, but then again, I hate all change. Ken Cheng (Winner) Trump’s nothing like Hitler. There’s no way he could write a book. Frankie Boyle I’ve given up asking rhetorical questions. What’s the...

    Original songs and the best cover versions

    Quite simple really, you probably all have some favourite music from your past which others have then recorded as a cover version. Some covers have become more 'famous' and that is the main driver of this thread. I'll kick it off with Handbags and Gladrags. Originally recorded by Chris Farlow...
  3. Personal Nicknames

    Interview disasters.

    After a final interview last week I thanked the interviewers for their time and left certain that an offer would be forthcoming. Unfortunately I trod on a discarded ice lolly outside the building and slipped over in clear sight of hundreds of people. I'll let you know if I get an offer. Any...

    Question Blair Sturrock and the rat tail

    My first game of the season yesterday so first chance to see the great pretender. Question? What on earth is going on with that Rat Tail? He looks like he should be working on a pikey fairground than wandring around a football pitch. Perhaps the club can use this as a marketing tool and...

    Are things THAT bad?

    We celebrated our manager's sixth year anniversary (with a win) last night. I know that it's been said many times but to not only have stability but to have a passionate, talented, local manager for so long is an incredible achievement for this football club. One that must never be...

    The Fishing Thread.

    This is it. There must be loads of fisherpeople out there. Me, i've only just began getting my rod wet. But i gotta say, fishing is so goddam addictive. I used to think it was so simple, how wrong i was. It can be as easy or as technical as you want it to be. If you believe all the hype then...

    Question Help or advice needed please??

    About 4 months ago we had to call out Dyno Rod due to our outside drains becoming blocked. They came out, unblocked the drain after about 2 hours of jetting it through and charged us £150. All straight forward and acceptable. This morning a chap knocks on my door asking if he can get access to...
  18. Musicians that "lost their way"....

    Listening to a bit of Rod circa early 1970's and it's superb. Since about 1976 or so he's just sheee-ite. So I give you the following who lost it big stylee. Rod Stewart. Stevie Wonder. Any more?
