A friend of the family (English) said when he first arrived in Australia and was invited to a party or get-together, he was asked to "bring a plate".

He didn't know that this was standard for saying, "Bring some food" - so he brought a plate.

 :rofl:

Well, you should speak clear English to us commonwealth  :yesmaster:

Hello Aussieville. Came all the way back here, to straighten out a few things. Things you should know abut your erm...'guest'.

You see good peeps, I knew this would happen. The minute my back was turned, he starts to besmirch my good name. Well I didn't get where I am to-day, by having my good name besmirched.

Right. Off we go. Are you all sitting comfortably ? Well I'll begin.

Logs started off in life as a Rag-and-Bone man. A 'Tatter'. He fell on hard times however, when his horse died. Then, would you believe it, the very next day, someone stole his cart. It was at this point that he fell on hard times. Down, down, down he sank, into the depths of despair, finally hitting the bottle.

It was round about this time, that I met him. A sorry, forlorn looking, emaciated, dishevelled wretch - actually he's not much different even now - rummaging through the rubbish bins, behind the Dorchester Hotel, in London.

Like a fool, I felt sorry for him, and took him in. I fed him, clothed him, gave him a little pocket money, and councelled him. Even while I was doing this, he'd fly into uncontrollable rages, and beat me up, if I accidentally gave him Earl Grey tea, instead of cheap Ty-phoo, or fresh butter, instead of Margarine...which was what he was used to, of course.

Then I taught him how to make clothes pegs, out of Hazel twigs, and fashion flowers out of crepe paper. He now has a thriving business, supplying the whole of Kent with these commodities, door-to-door.

So you see, he's not to be trusted, one little bit. Oh and a word to Miss Ducky. Just watch your step there, or you might find yourself a  Duck a l'orange...and Barny, you really do not want to take over his 'Fick' thread. It's like Alice in Wonderland, full of bizarre people, and weird happenings.

Right folks. I hope that's shed some light on this individual, who I see has infested this thread already, with flies and spiders. How uncouth, is that ?

Must be away now. Plane to catch. Don't know what the vernacular in Oz is for Good Day, so I'll just say G'day, cobbers.

Oh and by the way. If you've trying to ring New Scotland Yard, and wondered why you were getting a wrong number, slight typo. Should read Whitehall, and not Whithall. No such place in the entire UK, I'm afraid. Oh you'll have better luck getting a response, if you ask for Mr Holmes. Sherlock.

But I did get a response on that number, EMB. I thought it was peculiar that the detective who answered the phone tried to sell me a standing order of Whithall Chocolates, and told me that no, they didn't make chocolates in the shape of a bobby's helmet.

Poor Logs. The story wrings my heart like laundry being stretched, rolled and squeezed.

Well! I did warn you lot, didn't I?

Get EMB and his "official" troll LOGS together...there's no telling wot they'll do.

Most of Embsie's story is really true (crosses fingers behind back)...but this is where Logsie has actually ended up.

Please note the "char-woman" has been in there all week cleaning up Logsie's mess.

Here's something for you................................

The Brick Theory of Management


How to place new employees in the right jobs for them:

Put 400 bricks in a closed room.

Put your new hires in the room and close the door.


Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.


Then analyze the situation:

  • If they are counting the bricks, put them in the Accounting Department.

    If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.


    If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in Engineering.


    If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in Planning.


    If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.


    If they are sleeping, put them in Security.


    If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in Information Technology.


    If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.

    If they say they have tried different combinations, they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in Sales.


    If they have already left for the day, put them in Marketing.


    If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning.


    If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in Top Management.


    If they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them in Congress.
