"Biggles Flies Undone".
And "The Wolves of Willoughby Chase", any Ian Fleming, "Fifth Form at St Dominics" and "Civil War, Interregnum & Restoration in Gloucestershire, 1640-1672".
Anyone got a favourite book that nobody else likes?

"Biggles Flies Undone".
Drinking Daddys beer is definitely not allowed Ramble.
'A TIGER, in Africa ???'
I re-read Sartre's 'Nausea' quite often. Mrs Munky said it made her feel sick.
I started reading the 'Joy of Sex' last week, but it gave me a headache.
Not entirely sure what I've done to deserve that comment from Ramblesid but I guess it takes all sorts. Swearing at someone you've never met on a public forum ? Nice one, a clear demonstration of literary excellence.
Don't worry PW. Most of us are quite pleasant, but some of us have bad days from time to time.
As for Ramblesid, probably the Wrong Time of the Month or something... ;o)
PW, if you really are a Pagan or a Witch, I love you on principle.
(And do you have any suggestions about dealing with negative energy? I've always burned White Sage, but any suggestions are welcome).
Take no notice of the swearing Ms Witch. It's allowed (after 9 pm) and can be quite bad on a Friday or Saturday night. I blame alcohol myself. It loosens the typing fingers. Instead, you could think of Ramblesid as your younger brother, then when he behaves like that, you can read it as a sign of affection and respect. He's probably jealous 'cos you picked a really cool handle. I would have gone for Lights Witch myself, but as you say, it takes all sorts.
You may not like Shakespeare, Ms Witch, but I still think calling him crap is fucking stupid. I also don't like the way you steal other people's stuff and call it your own.
I've got a favourite book and no-one likes me.
Know the feeling
Ram - any chance of you backing up your accusation of Pagan Witch's plagiarism with an example? I see from the Witch's website (click his gravatar) that he's very keen on copyright law, so this could be the hypocrisy exposee of the decade...
I love a challenge...
Here's one that was spotted and mentioned at the time:
I just assumed that P.Witch didn't realise it was a site for original humour.
Ah, it's turned into a Witch hunt. Fetch out the ducking stool.
Technically, we'd probably have to cite the original source, establish a link between the two to prove there was an intentional breach of copyright rather than it just being a case of coincidence, and get the originator of the piece to bring the case to court. I'm not sure whether a third party can bring a breach of copyright claim to court on behalf of 'anonymous'.
My own choice of PW quotes for the day are:
I look forward to people getting on with what they do best on here - being bizzare [sic*], witty, inventive and above all funny (1)
if you didn't press the shutter button you didn't take the photo (2)

I see CSINB have been hard at work. Well done Mr Gor and Sundry. I'm pretty sure it was Shitsu who identified that example you found but I can't remember which comic it belonged to. Shitsu's probably dodging bears and hill-billies in the Adirondacks as we speak.
A few weeks later I heard Fred MacAuley come out with, on the Saturday repeat of News Quiz, the exact same joke as the witch had posted Friday evening. This particularly pissed me off as on the first occasion I'd written something giving possible excuses for her/him.
I used the term Ms Witch on purpose BTW because I had a sneaky feeling she was really a transvestite warlock. Now she comes on like an eye fluttering distressed damsel who can't believe anyone could be so cruel to her. Nice one Stevee (ms)
So, the star witness is 'out of the country' is he? Hmmm. Pity. And the original documents were left in the basement of the old warehouse, which then burnt down in mysterious circumstances amid suggestions of a possible insurance scam, huh? The CPS aren't gonna like it boss.
