gotta go - mind my stool

you need to spend a penny at the pub and don't want to lose your bar stool so you prop up some sort of lookalike inflatable doll to keep your place.

my advice, make it BIG and UGLY with a 2 pint glass of frothing beer and hands like a gorilla and a winning smile.

       From an old joke: "I've spat on this chair".

       i've always like the idea of signing your name on any chair you sit on, so you have the ultimate response to 'I don't see your name on it'.

       Referencing the summary...//gotta go - mind my stool//   

       Haven't you already gone?

       One incidental thing the bakery is great for: learning slang from other countries. I had never heard the slang "spend a penny" (meaning "use the restroom") until this idea.

       [DrC]: I belive the original was a note left by a glass of beer: "I've spat in this" to which was added "So have I".
A friend of my mother's would drop his glass eye in his beer when he had to leave it temporarily.

       not the clockwork glass eye that made the tumbler rotate slowly clockwise on the coaster - how that worked, no-one knew except the goldfish.

       angel - here's looking at you, kid...

       [lostdog] funny how the people you most want to talk to, have no email addresses on their profile.   

       what does that say about me ?- no buggar emails me.
po, Mar 10 2003

       I'll e-mail you...
