Mr T says "Don't drink oil, drink milk!"

Actually not related to Mr T at all..sorry.
Boy drinks oil
This confuses me, I want to see the funny side but ultimately it's just really sad. He couldn't have been all that bright if he was drinking petrol.

Bring back punishment for this, kids today don't have any idea what it was like to be "sent to your room", now they have computers, tv's radios and psp's to play on there. Also better education might bring back higher IQ's, rather than the lowering/dumbing down we have now. Teach kids the 3 R's not how to type with the aid of a spell checker. When I was at school we weren't even allowed to use a pocket calculator until our Higher Maths exam, even then we had to show all working not just the answer. (and that was only 30 years ago)

Yep - My bedroom was boring!
Nowadays, being sent to your room wouldn't be a punishment in the slightest unless you make the added effort of removing everything - unplugging the fuse would be less effort!

can only afford threepence piece - "THROOP-ence" "THREPP-ence" or "THRUPP-ence" reflecting different pronunciations in the various regions of Great Britain. Likewise, the coin was usually referred to in conversation as a "THROOP-nee" "THREPP-nee" or "THRUPP-nee" bit.
