...............and then he went back to chewing the carpet.
I say, Red, could I commend this for the Front Page?
Marvellous, five stars
I have just discovered that there is a Preston Airport in Cuba. Whoops!
An extra five stars for geography, well done.
Any day now you may discover that Preston is in Lancashire
I suppose you dream of mass murder at Prestwick
So do the BAA
You're well named, Mr Slow
And yourself, Mr. Snake.
I give up. There's no comeback can match such a witty riposte, Oscar.
You aren't by any chance in the polis?
That.......'Oscar' put down must be from the Policeman's Book of witty repartee, surely.
I'm not an Oscar fan but …..
“Am I alone and unobserved?” ….....
If You're Anxious For To Shine.....
Am i alone and unobserved
Reginald Bunthorne was freely acknowledged to be based on him and he would delight in dressing the part and sitting prominently in the front stalls..
Actual song “If You're Anxious For To Shine.....”
starts about 1'30” into the clip
I think what Ostsee and ramblesnake were getting at was that "Preston" was intentionally substituted for "Prestwick" to poke fun at the perceived lack of geographical knowledge among Americans, and the implied intention to attack Prestwick was to poke fun at America's perceived readiness to go to war, and to demonise people/counties who don't fall in with US policy.
I also believe that the word "Scotch" was used knowingly, to imply that Americans aren't sensitive to the irritation that the word can cause when applied to Scottish people.
ramblesnake was then implying that your name "...slow" was apt because you appeared to have missed these two references and taken it as a literal call to bomb a Scottish airport.
Went straight over, missed it completely.
If that is so, I must renew my call for front page billing and award more stars, well meant.
Have grown accustomed to attacks on Scotland, his previous post concerned bombing us with vegetables.
I do owe ostee an apology....Sorry, ostee, I, you were far too subtle for me.
The attacks on Scotland are hilarious. Proud Scot that I am, I 'get' the fact that these are intentional, based on stereotyping and indeed, ridiculing that stereotyping.
Apart from anything else, these guys know better than to intentionally rile me....
Hey Mr Target, spot on. So you live up to your name as well. I know the B in the Jeni B stands for bonnie lassie but afraid I don't match the snake epithet. In real life I'm more of a large worm.
Thank you, Mr Target, your assumptions about my post are spot on. I was fairly sure that Preston does not have an airport as I do hail from Lancashire, however when I Googled it later I discovered that there is a Preston Airport in Cuba! CIA bombing Cuba!!
Thank you all who gave me stars.
Then we all cool here.
Ever wondered why the Preston by-pass was the first motorway to open in Britain? To confuse the CIA, that's why.
Preston, the second most optimistic town in Britain - after Aberdeen.
