  1. Was anyone else born on the 29th February, or was I the only one that couldn't celebrate a birthday this year?

  2. Not me!

    Sorry I missed it in the Birthday Greetings, mate.

    You are familiar with Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance"???
  3. Never heard of it, but I googled it and found that it's a comic opera.
    Is it worth watching?
  4. Great music, but the core of the story is that a young man finishes his apprenticeship as a pirate when he turns 21, but discovers that he must go back to them when it is revealed that he was born on the 29th of February, and therefore, although he has been alive for 21 years, he has only served 5 and a bit years of his apprenticeship :LOL:.
  5. ^^ Ahem, I know it well :oops:
    Pirates and "HMS Pinnafore" are my two fav G&S musicals :p

    "What's the matter with the man, is he not well?"
    "Yes, he looks rather triangular ..."

    ... or something like that :p

    Aaron, give it a go, it'll be one of two things: you'll hate or love it! :grin:

    Hornet, glad to know of another G&S fan! :grin:

    Oh, BTW, belated happy birthday Aaron :p :grin:
