This approach works on Harry Hill's programmes so might work here! :wink:


I suggest wet arm-warmers 'round the back of the bike shed. First to cry real tears or shout for 'is mam when given a particularly stinging arm-warmer slap on the bare leg is the loser.

12 bore shotguns at 30 yards would be my choice. No 4 shot. :lol:


You'd only shoot yer own feet. :-)

I once knew a bloke who attached a "rocket launcher" to his handlebars. It was just an old tube open at both ends, into which he placed a-one o' them Nov 5th rockets. He seemed ignorant of how a rocket works and had to purchase a new jersey as a result of the firing. The rocket hit a kerb, about 10 feet ahead, then attacked the gutter-clarts to no real effect.

With that type of activity, are you not a Tory MP?


I went to grammar school, where we were encouraged to pretend we were at a public school, with various apes of their silly footles. We all belonged to "houses" that no one took any notice of at all. There were rools about the angles of caps on heads, not to mention a ban on brown shoes. Wet towel events were held with the encouragement of the skool authorities, on the grounds that they were less harmful than the savage modes taking place regularly in the yard of a breaktime.

No one knew where all the silly rools and queer arrangements came from until there was a programme on the tele about Harrow or somewhere. Those "masters" (aka teechas) who recommended these public school emulations were then mocked mercilessly by we "gutternipes".

*******
In Tyneside they used to tar & feather Tories, in the olden days. Many opined that it was "too good for 'em". :-)

You can't shoot your own feet with a 12 bore unless you deliberately aim it at them :roll:
