I'm pretty sure I invented the paper boat.
who thought that he invented not liking girls.
the use of the word "moot" as an adjective.
People were probably playing corridor football long before me...
There've been plenty of things I may have dreamt about, and can't decide if they're memories or just didn't happen...
you're left with the problem of what to do with the lid?
Well, I place them top down on the table and then plant the yoghurt pot base down on top of it.
Obviously, there's always a little yoghurt left on the lid and this sticks to the yoghurt pot meaning you don't need to worry about getting up to put the lid in the bin until after you've eaten AND you don't get messy splodges of yoghurt on the table.
I have NEVER seen anyone else do this and people often comment on the sheer genius of my solution to the age old yoghurt lid dilemma.

I do that. After I've licked the majority of the yoghurt off the lid, obviously.
to my utterly astounding 'invention' fucktherave!
I read that as "fuckface".
if it works for you of course.
and who you calling fuckface?
at the time, i named it the "mary ellen" after my then-friend and future-but-now-ex-flatmate.
Vodka & Cherryade is still the best
I mixed Absolut Pear with a carton of syrupy mango juice drink. It's delicious, and you can kid yourself into thinking you're getting two of your five-a-day.
even makes gin bearable
but yeah, I love mango juice.
i told my girlfriend her perfume smelt like gin, she wasnt too impressed.
absolut in canada!
use the term 'bonk' as he reckoned he had made it up and wanted to spread it and make it a commonly used word.
(i am unsure as to whether or not this is true, but he was certainly before Steve Wright, who I think made a similar claim, because I remember being outraged at stever wrights barefaced cheek)
drinking holstein pils from the bottle and smoking old holborn roll ups and always wearing black........at least I did in my town.......the proof......i often had to wipe cobwebs off the bottles I was given.
At Poly I used to wear black german paratroop moleskin clothes.....plenty of pockets...I could fit in 8 bottles of pils comfortably....I invented that look and no one managed to keep up with it
invented the nickname "Zoko Pops" for Didier Zokora. When someone pointed out to me that a t-shirt company was selling t-shirts with the nickname printed on it, I sent them an email, along with proof of identity, requesting royalties. We managed to compromise on them sending me a free t-shirt, only I never received it :'(
calling tortellini 'Pirate Hats'.
Obviously, because they look like the tri- pointed hats that pirates and general old fashioned seafarers wear/wore.
Been calling them that since I was 8 and it seems to have caught on with everyone I know. Even people I've never mentioned it to. Its like AIDS.
or possibly 2005, we were very drunk, pissing about on the walkway by the toilets in deepest, darkest orange camp singing old dance hits really loudly.
Some guy whizzed past in a trolley just as we were singing "i'm horny, horny horny horny" so we changed it to "trolley, trolley, trolley trolley trolley".
By the last night people were singing it EVERYWHERE whether there was a trolley involved or not.
Also I think I invented lemon snakebite.
Oh my GOD. If this thread had a winner, you would without doubt be it.
to be honest I think it was one of them rather than me, but without his peers backing him up on changing "horny" to "trolley" the chant may have faded into oblivion. Instead, it spread throughout the whole campsite, for the whole weekend, and, I hope at subsequent weekends, not that I have been!
you deserve a knighthood of some sort
We should copyright it and get the Cheeky Girls to record it.
They are probably trolley collectors at Lidl now anyway!
something in "something something" shocker!
YEAH, THAT WAS ME
me that his dad introduced the baseball cap to England.
my friend agrees with me.
In primary school we did this programme where in pairs you had to made up a comapny and pretend to run it and everything. Me and my friend had the 'Laugh Out Loud Theatre' So really we invented LOLT. But close enough, considering neither of us were aware of 'lol' at the time..
Also... My friend said that there should be an MP3 player and a vibrater combined and guess what iPod released not long after!
Gretchen Wieners' dad?
Which I think you'll agree injected new life into the genre.
I swear this is true. Patents exist that prove it and everything.
My friend claims to have invented "in your face" (or at least introduced it to our neck of the woods). He is talking balderdash, though.
Serrated cardboard cups so you don't burn your fingers
making little diplodocuses with your hands and fingers
Having googled it since though, it appears that it already existed.
As I thought of it independently, however, I can claim it. Sort of.
I'm having that one.
I'd forgotten about that.
Calling people 'dude' in Cockney.
a girl once invited me and a chum to be her "friends at both ends", which i described as a manwich
WAY before i met you
using a snooker table to play bowls on
its an AMAZING sport
were on a focus group, and im pretty sure we invented:
1) dolmio in two pots where you microwave it and one pot has pasta and the other has sauce and you stir it in
2)hula hoops shots, where its little flavoured potatoe bits in a plastic pot so you dont get your fingers greasy.
and this thread came up instead of any pictures of "hula hoops shots". anyone know if i made this up or not? cos i dont think i did
i invented these
!!!!!!!!!!!1 I used to know someone who thought that he'd invented the phrase "schoolboy error" and someone else who thought he'd invented "allow", as in "allow this shit". It might have actually been the same person.
I might have pioneered the use of "bouncing" to describe the failure of MSN messages to send.
the word "gaylord"
