thats great Zooms, but, considering Alan has more braincells in his pants than his head, Im not sure he will be successful.


But, I shall go knock on his door later, serve him toast and jam, and encourage him to play a little bit of the game Tiddlywinks before I make him take your test.

no, no, do it, DO IT! I love dancing.

I esp love how you take my handbag and set it on middle of floor and make me dance over and round it while you dance by shaking your hips and stiffen-swing your arms with your back in an awfully tight position like you were being electrocuted up the ass!

Well, that's 'cause I usually do plug a power cord up my ass whilst out on the floor. That's how I do my "Weekend at Bernie's" dance.

This settles it, when I get to Belfast we're going dancing!

if they're going to take the time to do this, they're not going to bother to cheat. there's less point in cheating than there is in even taking this stupid quiz.
