Yes, I’m getting very muddled when it comes to glove puppets. Emus, ducks and ostriches have all merged into one in my feeble mind. Don’t even mention Nina Conti’s monkey.
But today, greetings are due to @Otter87 and @peterparrotface as it is both World Otter day and World Parrot day. Colin Murray said on Countdown this afternoon that he didn’t want to mention the latter as Nickel his parrot had recently died and he currently has a Nickel-less cage.
It's wear a dress day tomorrow. I trust you will be celebrating this @LX1!
Wycombe rumoured to be interested in Aaron Nemane of Notts County.
EFL Transfer Rumours on Twitter: "Carlisle, Wycombe and Bolton are both exploring the possibility of Aaron Nemane. Notts County have offered him an improved contract... #CUFC #CarlisleUnited #WWFC #Chairboys #BWFC #Notts https://t.co/KH3WI6KuRP" / Twitter
@ReturnToSenda - is this account more reliable? They claim to be ITK, and publish a thread of previously correct rumours.
They’re not particularly reliable
I'd say not - chances are they're just tweeting legit stories from elsewhere without credit. It's a minefield these days.
Have we ever signed anyone that we were runoured to be 'interested in ' in May?
'Why no new players???!!!' usually kicks off in June. Followed in July by 'Who the **** is that?' and 'Impressive showreel on Youtube, but that proves nothing...'
Cheers - ah well, I suppose this is still the right thread for it. Hopefully the contrast with the Emu rumours will give it more gravitas.
Maybe Fred? But that may have been more of a lucky guess after a game of 'Which ex-player will return?'
Sometimes a nickname given to particularly hapless players.
Hence hoping we don't label any of ours chuckle brothers next year.
Anis, Josh Knight and Taffs will always be the Chuckle Brothers to me.
Have there been many famous hypnotists? I can only think of Tony Le Mesmer and the bloke who hypnotised Andy Kerr onstage at Wycombe’s great mystery nightspot, The London Bus Emporium.
The London Bus Emporium. There’s a name I haven’t heard in about 3 decades
Paul Mckenna got into a spot of bother with his act in Wycombe.
I knew the brother of the chap who took Mr Mckenna to court.
Really, signing Rod Hull and Emu?
That idea is never going to fly.
Quite a step down from Wing, too.
It'll get some in a flap, that's for sure.
At least signing them would kill two birds with one stone.
SKY really was the limit…
I wear a dress as standard, so given this information I may go naked for the day
Bearing in mind the concept of hypnotism (putting aside scepticism a lot of us have) is to mess with people's mental perceptions, its surprising there haven't been more cases like this.
Phil Schofield, Michael Barrymore and Danny Hylton are available on free transfers
Will this improve dressing room morale and togetherness
I'm not sure this is the board for you pal.
I'll do a brief story on this bullshit.
I was dragged kicking and screaming to his 'show' at Wycombe Swan, might have been the one mentioned above. Before the interval (thank god a break from this nonsense) he got 3 or 4 members of the audience up and 'hypnotised' them. One was told she had a dog. Important here. ONE WOMAN HAS BEEN TOLD SHE HAS A DOG PEOPLE, ONE PERSON. During the interval these audience members walked around in their various characters to much 'hilarity'. And then the woman 'with the dog' happened across one or two of the other victims. At which point her dog attacked them and they recoiled in fear and anger about this dog and remonstrated that she should control it etc. HILARIOUS. Apart from I was the only one it seemed that mentioned that SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT SHE HAD A DOG. FFS WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE???? THIS IS SNAKEOIL AT BEST.
I walked. Absolute charlatan.
When your laying on a hospital bed you need something to entertain you.
Couldn't think of any lower specimens to choose
Probably best to stick to glove puppets or world class comedy duos, pal.
But get well soon.
Assume you’re not a chicken 🐓
Or oversized pink spotty weirdos
I thought that's a pretty harsh description of the average gasroom poster!
