  1. Possibly the worst excuse ever:

  2. Even if true, it should be a criminal offence to have friends that f*ckwitted :shock: .
  3. reminds me of a joke i heard:

    A woman and a man are involved in a car accident but it's a bad one. Both of their cars are totally demolished but amazingly neither of them are hurt.
    After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says, "So you're a man, that's interesting. I'm a woman. Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days."

    The man replied," I agree with you completely This must be a sign from God!

    The woman continued, "And look at this, here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune." Then she hands the bottle to the man. The man shakes his head in agreement, opens it and takes a few very large swigs from the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man. The man asks, "Aren't you having any?" The woman replies, "No. I think I'll just wait for the police..."
  4. Sounds so stupid it has to be true! :shock:

    Well can't blame the defense lawyer. All they have to do is introduce resonable doubt.
  5. If I had a friend who's idea of first aid for injury was to pour alcohol down my throat, I'd invest in another friend!

    Love the thread title, jd, you obviously remember the old 'Yes What' series on radio?
  6. Err no, I'm not exactly the radio series generation ;).
  7. err, ok. Well one of the characters had a million excuses for not doing his homework (it was set in a school, with a barely sane Master and a class of idiots) and one of the excuses he used was that the dog had eaten it. Another was that he had left it on the piano (all houses had pianos in those days, even if no-one played) and the house had burned down......
  8. Ahh I see. I just used it because the old "dog ate my homework" line has become pretty much a cliche for excuses.
  9. and you're right; it probably already existed before the radio show, but 'Yes What' certainly popularised it.

  10. Dear god, I am old enough (just) to remember my grandfather listening to Yes What? It was actually pretty funny.
    Time for me to start growing ear hair.

    Regards, Andrew.
