    I was born in a crossfire hurricane.

    Voters are a forgiving, forgetful bunch. But Powerpoint? There's your political downfall right there. Bring back the OHP.

    Steven S (Welcome long-time linker, first-time poster)

    This is one of the clips people see when they come to my workshops


    Paul, (all kidding aside) one of my bigger regrets is to have come out in my last book as a recent recruit to Sunday School teaching, only to realise by the time I was writing the next one that I needed to return to apostasy. This tale involves whole chapters and future blog posts, which I hope are not too far away.

    Steven C. Not if Bob Clarkson keeps jabbing me with his ruler.

  • Stephen Judd,

    Augeas had the horrible stables, that's why they were Augean. I imagine there are stables all around the Aegean that are quite pleasant.

  • David Slack,

    Corrected. Thank you Stephen. I even hastily checked beforehand. Bloody Google.

    I feel even more mortified than I did on Carly Flynn's behalf when the auto-cue asked her to say 'Socrates'. Her interpretation rhymed with Dough crates.

    A word of advice - don't wear Crocs in a dirty stable.

    That's easy - he's David Letterman. The top ten lists give it away.

  • Nat Torkington,

    1. I once wrote a favourable review of a John Key speech in exchange for sexual favours from a Young Nat.

    You said you'd never tell! This is worse than the time I had to bribe Nicky Hagar to leave out the bit about me, Don Brash, and a blue dress ....

    My friend, Damien Christie, has three.

    And a box full of skyrockets...

  • Paul Campbell,

    sigh - I miss skyrockets - every GF I used to put away a few hundred to use later in the year (other people have wine cellars) - came in very handy one year when the army came to our small town and held a terrorist training exercise closing the other end of the street, one of my neighbours brought their canon to the party .....

    From "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure".

    Bill and Ted have travelled back in time to Ancient Greece.

    Bill: Socrates. Hey, we know that name!
    Ted: Hey... [hands Bill a history book] Look him up. Oh, it's under So-crates.

    Party on, Carly!

    How do we know that's not how HE pronounced it anyway?

  • Eric Olthwaite,

    If I don’t bag ten, I have to detail his Hummer.

    I can't keep up with how you young people evolve the language, is "bagging ten" the same as a teabagging? Is "detailing a Hummer" the new reacharound?

    Now I want to be a politician also.

    Again, from watching Bill and Ted. Of course, they way he said it there didn't sound much like the standard Aglicisation either.

    Eric,

    Bagging ten is the Socratic method of dive-bombing. It was first used by the Luftwaffe over the Augean sea. Bill and Ted showed them how.

    Detailing a Hummer is indeed the new reacharound, but not the way Richwhite makes you do it.

    Paul, my brain and I have to apologise for having read that as 'every girlfriend'...

    I thought it was quite cool that his girlfriend was really into rockets, too.

    Me too, I thought it was a really good idea. Celebrate a relationship breakup with real pyrotechnics. It could be very cathartic. Burning an effigy might also help, in areas where burning is still allowed.

  • BenWilson,

    Surely detailing a Hummer is the king of reacharounds. Unless the reached-around has incredible stamina, or, like me, hates reacharounds for reasons explained perfectly by Elaine in Seinfeld (poor access to the equipment), a simple elbow grease comparison would put the Hummer as the equivalent of 20 reacharounds.

    One Hundred Ex GirlFriends in the cellar?

    For later use?

    I dont think a stash of of old skyrockets will be much help in getting you out of that one paul.

    and you cant just use em willynilly, you might end up on some register....
