I think it's absolutely ridiculous that when you look for horse meat notmally, you can't find it for love nor money, and when you're not looking for it, it turns out you can't escape the stuff!

Horses are like buses it seems.

In my teenage drinking years a drinking partner used to always stop at the same burger van after a night's revelry. Once, during a food scare he asked for "a dead horse and whale". The cook didn't bat an eyelid, just gave him his usual burger. This carried on and over the months it mutated into "a dead Orson Wells" which only once got a reaction - the people behind us were so put off their food by the image that they left the queue. Forty years on and I still call a burger a dead Orson Wells. ;D

This is why I always hand slaughter all my Cats, Dogs, Squirrels, Rats, mice and the odd foetus.

You are what you eat and God forbid anything alien enter my foodchain.

There was a scandal of horse meat in supermarket food...... Damn the b@strds, Damn them all, that ai'nt healthy, hoofs, mechanically stripped (jet washed) chicken and beef, aaah, that's more comforting.

Burger or chicken nuggets anyone?

Speaking of burgers and nuggets, I realized some time ago that unless it's homemade, a burger probably contains meat from every single cow that went through the processor that day. Turns 'getting mad cow is a 1 in a millions chance' into a statistical probability if you ask me ::)

I don't believe any of that.... but I suppose it's still a good WTF (just not sure why).

That's just part of my incredible life. You probably also won't believe that the last time I heard of said drinking partner was in a small article in The Times, reporting on the fact that he had been sacked from Harrods for "being too stylish". ;D

To quote NCIS

"Whats in this burger?"
"Don't think its real meat!"
"Probably goat."
*Takes a bite and walks of with the burger* "Good Goat!"

Talking of drinking night, After a night of heavy drinking (I was sick that night) 2 mates walk into a pizza shop and the cook ask if he want the pizza cut into 4 or 8 slices,
automatically one of them turns round says "4, can't manage six!"
WTF!
I suffer from a random misfiring synapse and a bad case of wolfen the turns me into a seven-foot-tall werewolf or a seven-foot great wolf!

I think it's absolutely ridiculous that when you look for horse meat normally, you can't find it for love nor money, and when you're not looking for it, it turns out you can't escape the stuff!...

Could be worse; "Life is like your funny uncles tool shed. If you think about it, you know what's going to happen. Question is; will you finally pluck up the courage to make a grab for the hammer?"

What? I thought that was in keeping with WTF motif.

A co-worker came up with this after the movie came out(yes, that long ago), I use it when the days just seem to get worse and worse.
So, if your work days are beginning to spiral and you want to add a chuckle....

brace yourself:

Life is like a box of buttplugs...*long pause*.... no matter which one you pick, you always get it up the a$$.




Alrighty, now that that's out of the way (or is it?!)...

Always ask 'Why not!?'

Clear container made from heat fused sand.  The shape is a wide base tapering to a narrow neck.
If you want something more elaborate than that you could try putting it up on the fancy word games thread.

 Thank you but
Will they make some fancy dutch text for me?
The problem is that I need to describe every little detail to then conclude it is glass, with a cork and plastic stickers. Which is something i can see, because i know what glass looks like.
It's like explaning a colour.
Which I ACTUALLY HAVE TO DO because i can't say something is "a golden brown" because that's not specific enough because not all gold has the same colour.

Pantone 146, by any chance? http://www.pantone-colours.com/ It's how I describe colours without mentioning colour.
