Actually, I'd probably get curious after a while and just eat the dog.

What is this thread about again?
Oh, the forum is about "health", but this thread seems to be about spam. And it is fine enough to make fun of spammers. I'll say, though, that I have never met a fried pizza - I mean, how would it work? - and I thought the whole "fried Mars Bar" thing was from a chip shop in Stonehaven (that later went out of business), because of some teenagers having a laugh, asking for what they thought was daft, and the chippie person thought "oh, all right, if you really think that's what you want, well, hell mend you ... "

So there, at last the headline, "Man bites dog". And a Pulitzer prize to you!

Well, compared to spam; fired, 'raw' or otherwise served, Haggis is a gourmet meal! Even the fried Mars bar sounds more appealing, to me anyway! Even the boiled pizza sounds better!

(I am a rebel, the V family tends to like the crap I mean stuff, and I just refuse to fit in!)

Yes, I meant to add with the 'exception of' haggis.

I love haggis and always toast the bard on the 25th Jan with haggis, his poetry and wine.

It's not bad but I don't want a steady diet of it! Once a year is just right! (Daily doses of The Bard though, go down well!)

Ae fond kiss, and then we sever;
Ae fareweel, alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.
Who shall say that Fortune grieves him,
While the star of hope she leaves him?
Me, nae cheerful twinkle lights me;
Dark despair around benights me.

I'll ne'er blame my partial fancy,
Naething could resist my Nancy:
But to see her was to love her;
Love but her, and love for ever.
Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
Had we never lov'd sae blindly,
Never met-or never parted,
We had ne'er been broken-hearted.

Fare-thee-weel, thou first and fairest!
Fare-thee-weel, thou best and dearest!
Thine be ilka joy and treasure,
Peace, Enjoyment, Love and Pleasure!
Ae fond kiss, and then we sever!
Ae fareweel alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee,
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.

Robert Burns


My personal favourite.

Nice!

I always throw To A Louse at my 6th graders, they have to try to figure out what it means! Plus they are kind of grossed out yet intrigued by the parasitical subject matter! They come up with some interesting 'translations' before I give them actual translations.
