    Vaseline and solvents?

    All it takes is a bit of acetone.

    You just couldn't resist the currency jibe.

    While you marvel at the magnificence of your beloved Sterling, most likely with a sense of eosteric pride, ponder the fact the your pint you are almost certainly going to be drinking later is going to be that much pricier than over here. By the time I'm done this evening, I'll be well on my way for the price of a Stella.

    And its sunny!

    So you will be "well on your way" for the price we pay for a pint of Stella? Just think, if I chose not to go out in Central London tonight, I could save myself a few brain cells, and probably enough money to buy your house...

    And I thought I had it rough?

    Guess I won't bitch about the time I got a telephone glued to the side of my head... Yeah, it sucked at the time, but in retrospect, it's pretty funny...

    Just can't imagine the feeling of the ripping flesh as ones feets & buttocks are forcibly torn from the associated appendages of the bike...

    "On the flipside, at almost 14 Rand to the Pound, superglue is pretty cheap"

    You ARE crass walliams.

    sorry but i had to say it .....

    ...the other penny should drop about now

    ...I don't think the Vaseline was used to *free* the poor naked man, while he was sitting there, exposed to the world.
