        I’m always confused, and that’s why I drink.

        You might get your comment deleted?
        Fupp that.

        Life’s too short to be looking backwards.
        I post stuff here and I think about 70% of it gets deleted, I don’t know.
        Some of it gets through, I think.

        I feel good, and you can too.

  1. Clampers Outside!

    Every Christmas Tescos hits the farmers! It’s a fuppin’ disgrace! …first it was the turkeys, last year it was the Brussels sprouts, and this year it’s the poor feckin’ bauble farmers FFS !

      ‘Tesocs’ – why do people put an ‘s’ on the retailers name? I have also heard people say ‘Lidls’ – for years I haven’t been able to figure it out

        Fair point… I took a look… and found this…

        “As you will know, but as those living outside the UK may not, the names the supermarkets themselves use are Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco, Asda, Co-op and SPAR. The first two are named after their founders, so the terminal ‘s’ indicates that it is, or once indicated that it was, Sainsbury’s shop and Morrison’s shop (and let’s leave aside for the moment why there’s an apostrophe in one and not in the other). Co-op is short for The Co-operative, so there’s no semantic reason why it should be known as Co-op’s. Similarly, SPAR, I believe, is an acronym, so equally SPAR’s would make no sense. That leaves Tesco and Asda. If the first is sometimes called Tesco’s, that may well be by analogy with Sainsbury’s and Morrisons. That is not the oddity. The oddity is that Asda is not known as Asda’s. At least, it’s not as far as I know. Maybe in some quarters it is. If it’s not, perhaps it’s because it was a relatively late arrival and the name Asda was thought somehow to be inviolable.

        You may know that the UK bookstore chain is changing its name from Waterstone’s to Waterstones. This has provoked outrage among the usual suspects. However, a company can choose to punctuate its trade name how it likes without regard to what is done elsewhere. Hence Sainsbury’s but Morrisons” (More on Waterstone(‘)s – http://languagelog.ldc.upenn.edu/nll/?p=3705 )

        TL:DR – It’s part of the vernacular

          I always thought it was a particularly Irish thing, coming from pubs. Irish pubs used to have the name of the licensee on the sign e.g. O’Brien. And the pub was always referred to as O’Brien’s cos it was the pub of O’Brien. So, Irish people see a name of an establishment and immediately possessive-ise it.

          I have nothing to back up this theory so if you know different, pipe up.

            probably when its a family name in the store title alright – but if saying “tescos” is an extension of this, then i wonder why people don’t say “Supervalus” or “Spars” – i guess we will never know.

            never

    But seriously, Trump…

    What are we going to do about Trump?

    -He’ll get us all killed y’know, if he gets elected.
    World War 3².

    -The new Hitler, with hotels and golf courses, and a squirrel on his head.
    Why does nobody care?

      Slow down boys…
      I think we got us one of dem ‘intellectual’ types drifted in from somewhere.

      I’m going to pretend I’m asleep.

      1. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

        I can’t sleep.
        Can anybody decipher what he/she was saying?

        I have ‘work’ to go to tomorrow(ish).
        I need to get sleep or whatever.
        I don’t want to miss my bus.

    Isn’t Christmas great?
    I love Christmas.

    I love that false camaraderie, that fake joy, the pretense that you understand why that person bought you that stupid present that you’ll put in the bin in February because you don’t know what it is or how to use it.
    I love all that.

    But please, think of the Baby Jesus.
    It’s not ALL serious. It’s a big joke. Jesus would agree if he ever existed.

    It’s an excuse to get drunk earlier in the day. Don’t miss out.
    You have my permission to do whatever you like. Fupp the law. The law is an ass.

        My ‘boss’ is too, granted…

        But he’s absolutely terrified and in awe of me.
        I do whatever the Hell I like.
        -Nothing, bar flute about here, an’ t’ing.*.

        *I can’t tell you any details because it’s a ‘Truth stranger than fiction’ kinda t’ing and you people are way too conservative in your definitions of ‘Job’. Also, there are NO VACANCIES..

    I meant to say, in case it wasn’t already obvious. I sleep twice per week, for two days.
    Then I do this.

    If it bothers anyone, tough.
    I have loads of drink, I have enough money, and I don’t really care.
    I may seem cantankerous, but I love ALL of you.

    Merry frlipiing hristmas, yous unts,

        I’m glad you’re still awake. Or, maybe I’m not.

        I’m glad I’m still awake. Or, maybe I’m not. Glad, that is.

        I’ll never sleep while Denis O’Brien walks this Earth.
        I’m sure I just broke a version of Godwin’s Law.

        Ah now. Steady on.

    Don’t be afraid.
    I’m very nice IRL.

    i just love tearing the hole off of certain opinions, not people.
    I have a ‘goldfish’ memory.

    Hello.
    I’ve never been here before.
    What’s it like?

    Curse you Mick Flavin, I blame you for this.
    You consolidated my pathetic existence too precisely with your terrible drawing yesterday.

    I’m struggling to to get my way out out out of of it.
    Nothing is working.

    Curse you Mick Flavin..
    How much doyou you want?to keep the Capucians from my door> and oot of my hed?
    Those monks terrify me.

    I used to be dragged to Church in Church Street as a kid.
    It wasn’t fun.

    A second choice would be very nice.

      I’m not knocking the good work they do, and I know they do a lot of good work.
      -But jeezus chroist man, they are scarey.
      They used to wear hoodies before the rest of us ever copped it.

      Mad yokes altogether.

      What I mean is, why not open (your heart and) the options for donations?
      I can’t contribute to them lads, lovely as they are and all that….

      I work around the corner from them.
      I would prefer more corners, and more options for my charity.
      They still scare the bejeezis out of me.

      Maybe I’m weird.
