Shit me through a keyhole, I forgot this was on today! Was it a nice ceremony?
I don’t know, I was turned away at the door because apparently my t-shirt was not suitably formal.
I heard a rumour that if you wore one of then super expensive Crab t-shirts you didn’t have to pay the entry fee.
I wasn’t wearing one of those. Mine was an NWA t-shirt with the N-word written across the back in Gothic letters.
I was also wearing my swimming shorts.
That is your favourite set of clothes. I remember when you turned up for Kev’s wedding in that. Oh, did it shock but what a statement!
I was gonna wear three pairs of socks and a girdle.
To be fair I paired it with a lurid South Park tie for Kev’s wedding, thus turning it into stylish formal evening wear.
How many people could pull that off? I’ve been known to pull off a duck-billed platypus but certainly not an NWA shirt / swimming shorts / South Park tie combo.
Four. Four people could pull that off. I am one of them. David Furnish is another, but he chooses not to. The other two people I am not at liberty to disclose.
… should it not have been called “The Chang-ening” rather than a christening?
Granted “The Chang-ening” sounds more like a horror film than the celebration of a child but it fits better in my view.
No. I don’t like that.
Hey, do you remember when people other than the two of us used to come here and write stuff?
Did they? Do you mean when our website was the number one zorse resource site?
Yeah. Those were the days. Maybe we should make more zorse posts to bring back the good old days.
I NEVER SEEN ‘IM.
‘ees got the look of the six wide about ‘im!
