Wildebeest look better in a tophat, or would the pith helmet be more appropriate, conthidering the regional climate?



Oh, sorry, some people don't like them... if you believe that "no gnus is good gnus", perhaps you should find another thread.  Cheesy


Cheers!

Cheesy   Cheesy   Cheesy

Oh dear goodness! At first I thought it was a typo, but this is infinitely more awesome.

I've always picked wildebeests in derby hats myself. Just a personal preference. Hyenas I think are more suited to tophats.

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

And cheetahs in tweed caps, La Contessa says.  Having been stalked, at night, by a real live hyena, I must say it was not fun.  Don't recall a derby hat, though.

Oh, and Miss Adler - wonderful find.  I always liked that poster.

There was a TV ad (for Typhoo Tea) from the '70s that had a Gnu signing the following:-

"I’m a Gnu, how do you do?
I’ve just moved into the house next door to you.
I’ve lost my Ty·Phoo, so let me ask you,
Can I borrow some of that most refreshing brew?
The flavour’s so fine — every time—
I just cannot wait to tell those friends of mine"

(& do you think that I can find it?)

Well, to be honest, in my life I have seen more gnus than guns so far.

I like Flanders & Swann, but it's a good thing I'm not in an office now: most places disapprove of any sort of gnu-ditty on the web.

This was the fault, of course, of my own dyslexia.  I kept reading the "... Guns, Pt. II" thread title this way; so I figured we should really have one for "all them gnus."

I had to put it in off-topic, though.  If I had actually made a wildebeest, I could have put it in tactile - or if I had put cannons in a gnu's horns, or some such.

Ah, well.

I had a dreadful urge to lock this topic, and leave a final post of:

"And that was the end of the gnus."

I am pleased that you restrained yourself, or I would not be able to mention the new interspecies crossbreed, the "Bad Gnus Bears".

Hyenas I think are more suited to tophats.

Funny; I always pictured them in track suits and Burberry ball caps.

Gnus and wildebeeste, of course, should wear fez.

No, no, I fear I must correct you- it is not Suzy you gnu, for Suzy (SUse) is Linux!  it is GNU, that you gnu
and everyone gnows that GNU stands for
Gnu's
Not
Unix
and thus by extrapolation, Gnu's Not Linux Gneither -
therfore We can conclude from the associative property that Gnu's Not Suzy
