Meat on The Ledge


Do you ever find that things aren't quite what they seem?


A chap I know once went to a dating agency and asked for a "feisty" female. Due to an unfortunate transcription error they sent him one who drank a lot.(*)


And the other day I received what I assumed was my first spam friendship request on (popular social networking site) Facebook. It turned out to be an invitation to a "luncheon meet".


Thankyou. I'm here all week.

I wonder how many dates have bombed because one party's idea of a gsoh is Eddie Izzard and the other's is Jim Davidson?

It's going to be a long week!

The word 'feisty' always makes me think of a yeast infection. I don't know why.

Oh, I get it. It's a play on words isn't it?
Very good.
You should try that sort of thing more often.

Geoff: How did you know the exact details of this completely made up encounter?!!!

Hotter: I think you mean long weak...

Scarlet-Blue: I can explain. Yeast is used to brew beer which "feisty" people drink a lot of to quennch their feist.

Vicus: I love it when you do that sarcastic thing ... you should do it more often!

Whenever I see the word 'spam' I have to start singing the Monty Python song. Not out loud, of course.

My sister was quite feisty at lunch time. She's sleeping it off now.

Dave said...

But your sister is really posh, Z, so it didn't show (what with her fancy knife and fork ways).

why is that dog wearing wellies, and red ones at that?

Rog said...

Dave: Spam spam spam spam spam...

Z: Feist! It's a big mistake to be too feisty at luncheon meats.

Ziggi: We're expecting torrential rain here. And Oz is a bit short.

Sarah said...

Did Oz pinch the wellies from Paddington?

Rog said...

Sarah: I think it was more likely King's Cross
