Sad Tale

Allan Report 11 Sep 2021 23:29

Saddest day of my friend's life today.:-(

He was due to get married next Saturday. His beautiful Dutch girlfriend, a fashion designer with very unusual style, was going to wear inflatable shoes.

They'd been engaged for 3 years and now they've had to cancel the wedding.

Yesterday she popped her clogs

Don't mix them up with the slug pellets Allan :-0 :-D :-D

Island that would have the opposite effect to the blue pills and would make him rather sluggish ;-) ;-) :-D :-D :-D


Allan Report 12 Sep 2021 12:35

Actually the little blue pills I was referring to are male contraceptives, you put them in your shoes and they make you limp

I used to have a racing snail.
I removed it's shell to see it it would go faster.
It just made it sluggish.

The best that can be said is that this thread could have been worse.
