  1. yes. Tautology is my big bugbear, like an added bonus, completely devoid of....., in my opinion I think that..... Grrrrrrr
  2. I will be eating a tin of Ghanaian food called "Nkulenu's Cow Meat with Shitto" Hmm. Well I'll think about it
  3. I was due to go to Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania on a bit of work and then go on a safari to the Serengeti. But now Southwold will have to do. Sigh.....
  4. Think you're overthinking it. More likely to be the same as a holiday romance. It feels different when you're back home. Oddly enough Nigerian beers all have sorghum added which supposedly alters the taste but I've never noticed. And not really worried about who owns Marston's - I think the Old Empire IPA at 5.7 is great!
  5. Lager beers are the really big sellers. In Ghana for instance there are Club, Gulder and Star. Nigeria has loads of breweries. Guinness Foreign Extra is a big seller in all the old colonial countries around the world sometimes brewed under licence or as in Ghana brewed by Guinness Ghana. It's 7.5% (except in Malaysia where it's 8%) but very expensive. Lovely drink with none of the bitterness of the stout. Available in UK as well.
  6. It's strange how beer can taste different depending where you are. I've made about 25 trips to Anglophone west Africa and drank bottles and bottles of Star beer which is the best selling beer in Sierra Leone, Ghana and Nigeria. Over there it tastes great- cold and tasty and 5%. I've found somewhere near me that sells it so bought a couple and settled down to savour it. In the cool and cloudy UK it tasted like otter piss. Even in the recent hot weather it was no better. Ah well back to Marston's Old Empire.
  7. The rectum is 6-8 inches long and 2.5 inches at its widest point. Use a tape measure but I won't be borrowing it any time soon
  8. Nurse! He's out of bed again!
  9. It's no longer PC to direct a joke at any racial or ethnic minority, so:- an Englishman, a Scotsman, an Irishman, a Welshman, a Gurkha, a Latvian, a Turk, an Aussie, a Kiwi, an American, a S African, a Cypriot, an Egyptian, a Japanese, a Mexican, a Spaniard, a Russian, a Pole, a Lithuanian, a Swede, a Finn, an Israeli, a Dane, a Romanian, a Bulgarian, a Serb, a Swiss, a Greek, a Singaporean, an Italian, A Norwegian, a Libyan, a Muslim, a Hindu, a Buddhist and an Ethiopian went to a night club. The bouncer said " sorry I can't let you in without a Thai"
  10. the habit of making statements sound like questions is called the upward inflection, high-rising terminal or simply "uptalk", The habit of ending statements with a stress that makes them sound a bit like questions is one that winds many people up, including me. California claim it started there around 1990 but over here many people take it as a given that the speech pattern arrived from Australia, going so far as to dub it the Australian Question Intonation. Some laymen go even further and trace the shift in British speech patterns to the arrival of soap opera Neighbours on British tele
