’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.
And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

Not something I've ever had to write before.
i dunno guys, maybe its time to give this the old heave-ho. That or go a bit "saint cronin".
There's a big thread at the moment where people essentially mock and moan about others for being stupid enough to mistake certain words for others (which is vitriolic and pretentious) and yet this was a fairly innocuous thread and you had to make a wee snidey comment like a persnickety little git.
Honestly if I was one of your daytime mob not only would you be completely fine with it but you'd be all over this, and you know that's true.
Oh I don't know, Theo. Maybe its because, lets face it, you're getting older and the world won't wait for you to catch up. Maybe its its because wrightylew doesn't post much any more and you're looking for another thrusting, intelligent young gun to condescend to. Maybe your itching to excersise your banning powers after a long sojourn from putting the 'moderate' in 'moderater'.
In any case, I can change theo, I can. I only want to see you happy.
When I start a thread about something no one cares about I don't go into a navel-gazing session where I assume times have changed and no one likes me any more, and maybe I should leave. Diddums.
That said you get massive props for the good humour of your response. :D
My point was that he might want to not do that if he's going to moan when someone pulls him up on it.
you'll be very busy posting replies to these threads if that's the case.
Someone acknowleged cowcow's good replies, someone else said it had turned a shit thread around and the OP objected. I simply suggested a solution.
I just think it's a bit pointless posting a reply like that but oh well, 'just the internet' and all that bollocks.
I'd say any reply that pulls someone up on some kind of grossly ignorant response or informs in some way is good.
But yeah, most replies are utterly pointless and banal. That's what messageboards are about, yeah?
so in conclusion: most replies (and threads) are dull/pointless/both but this is ok.
Missing out the apostrophe is pretty eurgh.
People who say that. It has an 'e' at the beginning for a reason.
can I hear it in a sentence ?
I've heard it many times.
were bounce do peeple say this?
I really hate that.
you're not cultured stop fucking avec me
like occasionally i'll take in french then go "Oh sorry sometimes i just don't realise" and i'll say "PUTAIN!" whenever anything goes wrong and i'll kiss everyone on both cheeks.
and look confused when anyone pointed em out
like an asshole pervert
Turned out it was just Micheal Mcintyre observing that, when having a shower, some people stand facing the shower head and some people stand facing away from it.
We've all got one, haven't we? Haven't you? Isn't it?
speaking anachronistic english?
He's better that Ryu innit.
