No mate, you've got me there. Trouble is TV and the big screen aren't exactly my strong point, I've never really "done" TV or gone to the cinema much. As a kid I was too busy playing war games and riding push bikes as an adult I was too busy playig war games and riding motorbikes! I couldn't name you one character from a soap, and stars names escape me. I do remamber seing Kennedy shot and my dad dragged me out of bed to watch "one giant step for mankind" etc etc. I was scared s**tless by the Darleks so they were a no no, and I didn't even own a TV for the first 3 years of marriage.

So I could be described as backward when it comes to stuff on the big screens.

I can however role my eyes indipendently of each other like the emoticon, make the screeching noise with a blade of grass and impersonate an owl!! All the kind of things that I found more fascinating than TV!!:goofygrin::goofygrin:

Pete

Iused to do that blade of grass thing too, but only when mum wasn't around - she didn't think it was a very ladylike thing for me to be doing :baffled::baffled:

She wouldn't have approved of me riding my mate's BSA Bantam around her dad's farm either - but then she didn't know :goofygrin::goofygrin::goofygrin:

Your a real hoot!:dance:

I recently attended a charity event with the cast of Emmerdale, it was really embarrassing....I've never seen an episode and didn't know who anyone was....:D

but your assetion that you have never seen TV since the Daleks and the first moon walk is a bit suss - who is John Cleese , Eric Idle , Graham Chapman , why do the voices in my heads keep telling me to type?...............WHY?

I do and it's a pity there's so little after. The parrot skit and Abbot and Costello's baseball routine are to me the funniest things I've ever seen on screen or TV.

Parrot sketch was and still is, one of the best ever! :goofygrin:One of the reasons the TV lays dormant in the corner so much these days, is because mostly the quality is C**P

Last decent comedy was " One foot in the grave", just about everything else leaves my chuckle muscles unimpressed.:whip::2finger:.

Kind of funny how a thread about deer whistles ends up talking about a dead parrot. a parrot that is no more, a parrot that has passed on.....so you can bring out your dead


Yes I am a big Python fan:clapper:

Hey "Silverfox" no wonder you've survived so long riding Bikes that "Eye " trick could be helpful in traffic, heck you don't need mirrors!!:goofygrin:

If i started doing the eyes in traffic, I wouldn't know which way I was going, but I can remember a pal at school doing it and I used to spend days practicing it, just like most of us practiced whistling with fingers in mouth. Boy, did I know how to impress the ladies!!

Another great party trick is wiggling your ears, yes, I can do that too.!! I had a misspent youth, but you can start to get the picture why TV didn't figure high on my priority list.

Somehow, I suspect I might have been better off watching TV, flapping ears and squiffy eyes, are rarely useful in adult life, shame really, maybe if Bush and Blair could do stuff like that on TV I might take them more seriously.:madeyes:.

Wannabe, I am highly impressed that you can do the grass screaching, gosh, would we make a musical pair at BBQs in,the summer.

All these things should be passed from generation to generation, so I hope you are all teaching your kids how to disjoint their thumbs, cram as many biscuits as they can in their mouths, make discusting noises by putting their hand under armpit and flapping their arm and any other school day prank, that you can perform!!

If any of you are reading this and thinking "stupid Boy!!" just go and look at the pictures submitted from the Irish Birthday bash, and you think I'm mad!!?:band::tongue::goofygrin:

I don't know what is crazier, the general silliness of this thread or the fact I actually sat and read all 5 pages of it. I do believe the inmates are now officially in charge of the asylum:jumper::jumper::jumper::jumper::jumper::jumper:

Au contraire, I'm jealous!:crying:I tried hard to learn to do neat things like that and never succeeded. I'd give a month's pension to do the eyeball trick. Oh, if I could only raise one eyebrow like John Belushi. I bow to your dedication and arcane abilities!

Hey Exavid, keep the months pention safely in the bank, just invite little old me over, get the BBBQ flashed up, chill the beer and I will teach you all those useless things. I can't believe you mentioned the independant eyebrow raising, my mother taught me that one and I can do both eyebrows. I can still remember standing infront of the mirror for weeks, wondering how to shift the eyebrow, but when it finally went up, wow was that ever exquisite!! That one is actually useful, I have used it many a time to question my boys and give them that " are you sure you are telling the truth, the whole truth, so help me......". My mother still gives me the eyebrow, especially when I put my hand under the armpit and give her my farty impression!!

See now, you just spent too much time learning the important stuff like French, and now you can impress me with your Au contraire etc.

Maybe you weremore musical and learned to play the comb through a sheet of loo paper, sounding like a demented, Kazoo player? Or maybe you were one of the rich kids that could afford whoopy cusions and sneaked them under unsuspecting friends bums as they sat down! I saved my money once and bought some exploding pellets, that you pushed in the end of a cigarette. Boy you should have seen my mums eybrows twitch as the cigarette disintergrated with a loud bang, between her lips!!:goofygrin::goofygrin:

Come on Goldwinger, you can't tell me your chuckle muscles aren'texcercised!!!
