how nice Horlicks is?
It's like sugary shreddies in a mug!
I'm old, aren't I?
I'm trying to catch 40 winks.
41 is one too many
Charles Earle Funk, in "Heavens to Betsy!" (Harper & Row, New York, 1955) hazards a guess as to why 40: "to take forty winks - Though I'm not saying that the reading of the Thirty-nine Articles has an actual bearing on the 'forty winks' or short nap that is likely to succeed that reading - or interrupt it - such a sequel could be inferred. The Thirty-nine Articles, for the benefit of the unenlightened, are the articles of faith of the Church of England which the clergy are required to accept. Adoption became legal by parliamentary action in 1571 in the reign of Elizabeth I. Needless to say, the perusal of these articles is likely to be considered most dreary. At least they led a writer in 'Punch' (November 16, 1872) to say: 'If a .man, after reading through the Thirty-nine Articles, were to take forty winks' and that is the first literary record of this precise number of winks."
I don't think he'd know much about sleeping. Too funky for shuteye.
the earl of funk.
MY NAME IS THE EARL OF FUNK
Charle Earle Funk realises he's just too goddamn funky, and drives round america apologising to honkys.
If it's one thing bobbygeorge knows, its hot beverages. Especially Bovril.
did you just call me?
Yeah, you heard.
Anyone want a cup of boiled cow face? You have 30 seconds to comply.
And by comply, I mean drink it.
Is anyone gonna organise another GLOLF day OR WHAT?
I'll start a thread about it if you're not careful.
Yes, I want more GLOLF. But not until I'm well again, which at this rate could be several decades. I SUPPOSE you could have one without me though.
Not until you're well and the judge has trained massive cat-face to stay at home without crying, or whatever dads are meant to do.
Think outside the box, man!
You've never ONCE recommended me this, unless you keep subsituting the world 'horlicks' for 'the field' or 'gui boratto'.
i thought you knew!
I thought it was some kind of sick joke!
when i was little! i was old before my time, i think.
maybe i'm regressing...
Then I can spend even more of my life feeling sleepy and going to bed. My ambition of never getting up again will happen one day.
in hindsight, I should've re-phrased that sentence.
there's a recipe for malteser cake, and you use horlicks in the icing. basically butter cream icing + horlicks. TRY IT!
