Worse than that, it's not really that humerus.
I respect your opinion, sorry to correct you but i think you mean humorous unless your referring to the bone.
That's a bit near the knuckle, ain't it? I surmise you're waiting to pounce with the old 'They don't have a leg to stand on' pun-ch line?
I'm also presuming that the faux spellings (eg their/they're) are part of you're (sic) sick persona? Nighty-nite.
ive upset you haven't I, hey if it's sick I really honestly apologise thats why I said I wasnt sure, I feel your being too personal with the sick persona jibe, lets keep it friendly.
Hey, I'm all for fiend-ly. Let's shake each other warmly by the throat and make up, eh?
After all, that's waht where here four... :)
5* comment Al, says it al realy. Pinxit's not bad to.
Why can't everybody just get along ? I'm stumped.
Some people on here really should get out more, whilst I am slowly growing attached to many, some of you are simply talking bollocks!
Now all those on here getting on their high horse about bad taste, get a grip.. I know (cos of the work I do) that comments like these and much worse are rife amongst soldiers especially. A black / dark sense of humour is critical (no pun intended) to doing the job on a daily basis..
I just called my buddy and told him about this 'joke' and he thought it was well funny, and he is still waiting for final payment from a blast injury in Northern Ireland over 10yrs ago..
So don't give the British Forces a bad name by implying for one minute that they would take offence at this.. they are not some marginalised, minority bunch of freaks who get off on crying in public and making everyones life a fucking nightmare..
If you want to know what really pisses off forces guys with flash burns, disfigurements, amputations and so on.. it's wankers who tip toe around them, avoid eye contact with them, offer that self consoling beer but don't speak to them and the old 'don't know what to say to them in case I upset them or offend them..' He's probably called Dave, he still wants to shag ya missus, ya daughter or maybe even ya mother and he probably still gets pissed, takes the mickey out of his irish or pakistani best mate and likes a curry on a friday night. More importantly, he's already considered the potential advantages about his condition and is already working on his next sympathy pint, blow job or similar.. underestimate him at your own risk!
What is newsbiscuit becoming.. the PC Doctor for godsake!
True, Mr. Saltire, and I do regret entering the fray here.
As a relative newbie, I was surprised by the factionalism that exists on this site. But I now put that down as naivety on my part. Everyone has their own agenda and reason to be here.
On this particular sub, I was slightly taken aback and didn't given the cyber-gent the benefit of the doubt.
Sometimes it is difficult to discern 'twixt a site troll and someone who is just genuinely stupid. Er, which of course, he's not.
I stand. Corrected.
I thought you said fractionalism ,I was just going to say it
s 1/6 of one and 6/12 of another ,but I am no good at math.So I wont bother.
better than being a spitter
Calm down Sharpy. I can't see any offence in the sub as I can't see any joke in it either, only pretty daft spelling mistakes. That's why I thought Al's comment was so apt.
BTW I've got peace and lovey tattooed on my fingers.
If I may?
Formerly Al was playfully chiding BlackAndroid on his spelling ("their" and "to"), by intentionally spelling "humorous" incorrectly.
BlackAndroid then pointed out Formerly Al's error, seemingly unaware of his own spelling mistakes and missing the point of Al's comment.
Pinxit noticed this disconnect and tried to help BlackAndroid see Al's gag, by laying it on thicker, even explicitly refering to the spelling errors in BlackAndroid's sub. He also included a gag that played on sic/sick.
Ramblesnake joined in by adding his own poorly spelt comment.
BlackAndroid then thought that the allegation of sick humour was sincere, and was being supported by Ramblesnake.
Sharpehunter (congratulations on the NiB, btw) then jumped in to point out that this was evidence of some deeper "NewsBiscuit" divisions...
As for me, I still don't get the original joke about amputee compensation / dodgy ground, but I've nothing against black humour.
Bang on Target! *****s to you sir. ( Ummm... if I could give stars to a comment )
