Oh my Giddy Aunt... or Uncle.

Only in America, or in this case Canada

Re: Oh my Giddy Aunt... or Uncle.

and I thought you needed help for an elderly relative with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)!TongueGrin

Come to think of it, what name could you give to person with hisher or herhis condition? All a letter randomiser came up with was etnulcuan.Funny

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Disappointed to note that we can no longer write Arsenal now, next up Fulham?

Re: Oh my Giddy Aunt... or Uncle.

Indeed but why now, or is it all about context?

Re: Oh my Giddy Aunt... or Uncle.

What a sad, complicated world we live in - The Kinks ( Ray Davis ) must have known all this was coming way back when they wrote their hit song Lola ( L A L O Lola )  -

"Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world"

 And as per usual the minorities shout the loudest and push and push their case, riding roughshod over decent peoples sensibilities....

Nothing wrong with shouting loud (and proud) but this is just taking the pish.

So people from minorities aren't 'decent people" in your eyes obviously. But presumably you think you are?

 

That's a [-Censored-]ing laugh...

How about 'peoples sensibilities', or would you take issue with that?

Whoops - I've just thanked your post by accident when I was clicking to see who on earth had thought it was worth thanking! Embarrassed  I can't find the unthank button.

I think you miss the point.

@wotsup sometimes has a good idea but spoils his argument by being rude about people who may disagree with him.  "Shouting loudest", "pushing their case",  "riding roughshod" and "decent people" is simply inflammatory and puts a lot of backs up.  If he argued in a civilised manner rather than like a drunk thug in a pub people might pay more attention to his opinions. Your support really doesn't help.

Have you ever thought that it's the children we brought up who are making the world the way it is today? It's probably all our fault anyway.

Re: Oh my Giddy Aunt... or Uncle.

Many years ago I used to go for lunch with a workmate.I had an incling he may be gay but it was never spoken about  but we enjoyed our conversations. I went on holiday and when I came back he told me he told me that he had to come out while I was away as one of the other blokes had been harrassing him about it. My reply was to ask him if he wanted to ask me  out on a date, he answered no and I said ok lets get on with our friendship then. There was also another bloke at work who every second sentance told you he was gay... He realy got my back up!!!!Roll_eyes

@ffox 

There's no need to click anything to see who thanked a post - just hover your cursor over the number of thanks and all should be revealed.
