Did any of you read my Alan Pardew story in Appro. about bringing Coles to Newcastle. If so - did you get the joke
which is probably only understood in the North East?

'Taking coals to Newcastle' - it's an old saying, still used today.

Just wondering if ANYONE 'got it'. It's not being published so I am asking here.

Thanks for indulging me?? Some writers have read it according to my Writer's Desk.

I didn't see it, and certainly didn't reject it.

I think we're all aware of taking coals to Newcastle and the connotations involved therein.

Perhaps someone rejected it because they thought it was shit, and unfunny.

Whatever, it wasn't me.

Regards

Skoob.

Thanks Skoob. I am not angry in any way shape or form. I merely wondered if anyone got the joke. Ok..it probably WASN'T as funny to others as I think it is LOL LOL

I'm saving it though coz I like it myself.

I'm gonna email it to my brothers and nephews in Middlesbrough. They'll have a laugh and one of my nephews used to support The Magpies.

I think the rest of the family must have put the thumb-screws on him as he grew because now he supports The Boro - or he DID when they were in the EPL.

UP UNITED!

Regards,
Anne-Marie

*holds up hand*

Yeah, that was me, sorry. I've never heard the saying before.

Thought the story would be better off done as a joke or a snippet. Didn't seem to have enough substance to make it as a news story.

Seriously, I didn't block your story in any way. The only reason I'd reject anything is if it doesn't have tags, or it's posted in the wrong category, or it's so badly written that it makes no sense.

Right.

Having said that - can we talk in public?

You okay with that?

Okay, it's no big deal, but could you please refrain from writing LOL every time you post on the forum? It's just irritating, and the sort of thing I'd expect from my grandkids.

Basically, when you write LOL - I'm not laughing out loud. I'm cringeing.

I really don't mean to be antagonistic, but when I log on to this site I expect to occasionally get some decent feedback. LOL just doesn't cut the mustard.

You seem to get some kind of vicarious buzz out of winding people up, which is fair enough, it's a spoof website after all, but all I'm asking is that you leave the LOLs and the bold caps in the kiddies' playground you retired from.

That's where they belong.

Thanks

Skoob.

That's fucking brave of you, Squire Lowton.

We'll probably get fucking LOL'd to death now.

I did.

Forget it.

OK Skoob....to me, at least, LOL means Laughing out loud (ME not YOU)

It's not a suggestion that YOU should start laughing. Heaven forbid!


How's about ROFLMAO

Which you must know means 'Rolling on the floor laughing my arse off'.

And hey...it's no more there to irritate anyone than YOUR

Bastards!

ROFLMA

This is a case of 'The Pot Calling The Kettle Black'.

You are OK Skoob - if not taken 'seriously' LOL

Herr Lowton

Are you deliberately trying to piss me off? Like that mad LOL woman from Canada?

If this was my site I'd fucking ban you for a start.

Anyway - fell off me bike by Titchfield Abbey in Hampshire, and got accosted by three blonde bimbos when I went over the handlebars (as documented in a Spoof article) on Highlands Road (Also in Hampshire.)

Google earth it - it's shit, but marginally preferable to Burnley and Salford.

Thankyou and bollocks

Skoob.

Birbee, you are in Egypt.? Why the hell are you there?

Checking to see if the Pyramids REALLY exist?

A Connondale eh Skoob?

My newest is a Specialized.....lots o' the riders in the Tour de France are riding Specialized bike.

Mine's a stupid bloody mountain bike hybrid. I prefer my old racing bike, but Mr. G. took it to the bloody tip.

It'd been all over the werld wi' me tha' bike 'ad 'inni'?

Rode time-trials with Beryl Burton on that bike - if anyone remembers her. Never beat her of course. None of us female riders did, but she was lovely and yelled encouragement to me in the Nationals when passing me after starting TEN MINUTES behind me in a time trial LOL (Oops! Sorry Skoob. - Just bloody kidding Skoob. I'm not sorry at all LOL you Bastard - that's a term of endearment I believe where you come from.)

I'm teaching them how to build hotels, Lady G.

They are big in in-situ concrete but haven't mastered the precast stuff yet, so they asked me to come over and show them.

But that sound's shit, so I'm telling people I'm here rearing camels..............

They don't seem to mind so much if you give them a bit of a warning.
It's a guttural noise, a bit like saying "Shish" when you are pissed and have a throat full of phlegm.

shhhhhhh, no one knows for sure who was behind THAT.............

Birbee, Mr. G. worked in Saudi Arabia and the Oman for years. Saw his fair share of camels etc. They spit a lot apparently and are VERY slobbery.

Enjoy whilst you can! It's an experience not many people get!

If you feel you have anything worthwhile to add, learn to spell.

It helps.

I'm in a really bad mood right now, so don't piss me off. If you fancy trying, feel free - I'll rip your soul apart.
