Ah've hid the best start tae a moarnin ah've hid fur ages!!

Wan ae the dislustrious (hehe.. ah know, but still, it fits so well) o'er in that cesspit quoted Conservapedia as a source tae back up thur illogical, uncritical and evidence free assertions fur thur homophobia; then thurs the daft antipodean (who's unable understand that the word 'global' in the terms 'global warming' ur 'global climate change' means thit folk ur talkin aboot the hale world n no just Australia)is tryin tae just get evrybody tae †stoap writin cos thur makin such arses ae thumsells his just started quotin Latin tae try and make hissel even less understood thin he has ever been; then, the numpty who aiways sed thit he sees nuthin wrang wi laffin at evrythin is upset coz he's stoapt laffin at sumthin n naebdy's takin him seriously and lastly - and most deliciously - the psychotic, overbearin, unmarried, fascisitic non-mother (who, if we wur livin in her imagined halcyon days of 1960s Scotland wid be viewed as nuthin mair thin a slatternly auld haddie by urrer fine, upstandin married folk) is daein hur best defendin the indefensible and makin hursel look like an inflated loony balloon.

Rerr stuff!! †Ye couldny make this up in a Harry Potter book!  In fact, ah think thit Douglas Adams wid hiv trouble comin up wi such a plot!

Hey you, stop ruining the plot! 'Westenders' is one of my favourite cyber-soaps. It has every tv trope known to televisual writing. To paraphrase;You could make it up! Sometimes I wonder what it must be like to actually share real-time with these people, do they sit and spout their drivel at work, for example? I wonder do their co-workers dream of sellotaping their vacuous, flapping gobs shut. Perhaps their colleagues fantasize that one day a hardened custard cream might cause jaw strain or an industrial strength toffee hobnonb glue their teeth together for a few hours.

Ah don't think he yiv tae worry too much, Alfa... Ah wid be surprised if thur workmates gied any ae thum any mair thin the absolute minimum of attention in the workplace, and outwith it, none attawattaw.  That's why thur deranged ravings ur unleashed in written form coz naebdy can shut them up afore they make utter unadulterated bletheration among thumsels and coincidently gie us such laff oot loud gems of bellum while thur at it.  

We should be grateful... we UR grateful!! blob1

That's impossible... they've just had a member return to the fold, - and what gems he's provided in his first 2 or 3 posts! †The sheer number of logic-free minds over there is impressive, dontcha think? †What can we do to advertise to other looonies that there is a place for them? †It reminds me of JK' s song about the different sorts who make up humanity, and who, after all, is really that 'normal'. Well, I know who is not 'normal' over there...

Maybe his pal Oxy could provide the lyrics for us.. †bom

Ah'm urnae shure thit ma Pal JK wuild want his wee song tae be assoshietit wi thon eejits, but he said Ah kin gie yese thi wurds...

The Gathering

Letís gather all the people
Who never quite fit in
The ones who really are too fat
Yes, and those who are too thin
All the ones who have bits missing
Those who cannot see or hear
The hard of understanding
And while weíre at it, letís not forget the queer

This gathering should, of course, take in
The ugly and uncouth
And it might as well embrace the old
And we ca balance that with youth
Whatís your view on colour?
Should dark tones go in as well?
Defining white canít be that hard
And while weíre at it, letís not forget the folk who smell

I know the list is growing
But we should include the poor
Theyíre always getting in the way
And povertyís a bore
I suppose obscenely rich folk
Should be added to the list
Then thereís junkies, speed freaks, pot heads
And while weíre at it, letís not forget the pissed

There have been some suggestions
For others who should go
Muslims, Hindus, Christians, Jews
Well, any kind of holy Joe
Thereís a plain criteria
To help us make our pick
Itís all those who would convert us
And while weíre at it, letís not forget the sick

Other nominations
Iím afraid were just bizarre
Removing cyclists wearing lycra
Might be taking things too far
To gather each minority
Would cause a massive fuss
If we need a big solution
While weíre at it, letís just gather all of us

Aye, thon's an excellent example of quantifying and qualifying humanity, right enuff.  And that lot are the very folk that the song addresses... by the time thit they've thrown evrybody they think is less thin human intae the pot, they'll discover thit, somewhere along the line, they're also due fur disposal intae sum bin thumsells. In sayin that, where they're concerned....  

Reminds me ae a play where the protagonists are standing in rubbish bins...Can't remember the playwright or even the name of the play though... anyone??

That's it!!  I knew it was a Modernist playwright but the name escaped me.  The symbolism of the play though...

I think Beckett might be a little too advanced for them, particularly when one considers that they are currently engaged in completely fucking up a poem that most youngsters tackle at 'O' level.
