    If a belt loader eats zippers, and a zipper eats penises, then then a belt loader can also eat...

    No, no. If you ask you can get those charges on a seperate bill so you have one to show the wife and one... er, that's what I heard, anyway.

    It looks a lot like that card had the faces pasted/taped on. Different paper "edge" around the heads, and they look flat compared to the card.

    That's not a Bundesjugendspiele consolation price (which would be a 'certificate of participation'), but the Schüler- or Jugendsportabzeichen in bronze. Similar thing, but sponsored by the DOSB (German Olympic Sports Confederation). The Bundesjugendspiele are sponsored by the Federal Presidency.

    With the bubble gum, I suppose you are trading being overly chewy and bad tasting for the ability to blow really big bubbles.

    I bought some salmiac after reading your about your first Finnish food parcel.

    I liked it. Rather too much in fact. After scoffing an entire bag I spent the night see-sawing between digestive agony and explosive flatulence.

    It's lovely but never - ever - again!

    Ah haha, I had Wow! (the internet service provider) as my first ISP. IIRC they were one of the first (if not THE first) companies to offer flat-rate cost internet connections. It was $20/mo dialup.

    One day they sent a customer-wide e-mail that was very similar to: "Hello everybody, we're going out of business, this last month is free, thanks"

    They attempted to be an AOL-style ISP, with their own special browser and intranet stuff. Their client was REALLY annoying and would full-screen, even covering the windows taskbar, trying to prevent you from using other clients. It was very easily circumvented by just having windows dial the same number, and using it like any generic dialup.

    Ah the memories. I discovered internet porn and cybersex via Wow!. One day I got a really sneaky idea and wondered if anybody had pictures of naked ladies on the internet hidden away anywhere. Holy crap was I surprised, hahaha.

    Unspecified Venue isn't very good for events like Exception. I don't know why they keep scheduling them there.

    Worked pretty well for #DIV/0! '99, though.

    I received a band just like that when I went to a show at the Palladium Ballroom (adjacent to the Loft) in Dallas back in July. A friend of mine received a band like that. His ID either didn't scan, or the system handled his outdated ID in that fashion. Mine printed my actual age and birth date on it. Pretty neat stuff!

    The system also prevents you from getting a band, giving it to an underage friend, and then getting another band for yourself as it stores your ID in its database.

    Erm.

    Bubblegum? I think that packet looks suspiciously more like one that would contain something used for an entirely different purpose, and which I would not put in my mouth ;) [I honestly hope that was the joke :D]

    I think the String Fellows band might have some copyright issues if they try to break into the UK.

    Zippers don't eat penises they eat pubic hair, as do belts - so it's a no brainer.

    Whenever I see a condom machine in a public bathroom, I always tell the clerk/bartender/whomever that the bubblegum in the bathroom is stale. In the old days I got laughs. Now I get dumb looks or horrified stares. The connection between the spent wads of gum that they have to clean out of the bottom of the urinals and this lame joke only occurred to me recently. Yes, I still say it whenever I can. Glad I could brighten your day. Enjoy lunch.

    Well obviously. The one face even extends past the edge of the card.

    If you dissolve the Tyrkisk Peber in a bottle of rum it makes for some really great party drinking.

    A bit like jalapeno-flavored Jagermeister. :-)

    Funny! So does WoW! We generally like it that way, though. And I'm *sure* somebody's written a mod to let you open a web browser inside it, too.

    P.S. I'll happily accept candy you'd like to get rid of, as well. I fail to see any reason to decline free candy (well, unless it's being distributed by a sketchy guy out of his van, I suppose.)

    StringFellows? Are you sure it's a band.. and not a ladyboy (as in girl with dick) bar in Pattaya, Thailand?
    The name of that bar you (suspiciously) happen to know about derives from Peter Stringfellow, an 80's London nightclub magnate (with a club called Stringfellows', of course). Think Rod Stewart with a ponytail, and rejoice the passing of the 80's. [Why was he famous? Beats me. The same will be asked of most of our present celebrities of course.]

    Stringfellows as a bandname is of course rather cunning...

  • Basement Dad (unregistered) in reply to Jon

    What are you talking about? Of course this concludes that belt loaders can eat penises XD. Every child should know that this relation is transitive. If A->B and B->C, then you can conclude that A->C also applies.

    That's why the package has some pink ribbons. So you make a knot and use it as a balloon.
