  1. What made you laugh today?

    This is very clever. Hats off who ever composed it. The wearing of masks is obviously a good idea. But only when they cover your mouth AND nose!! I'm fed up with seeing people on publlic transport who think their noses are not part of their respiritory system.
  2. What made you laugh today?   2 men in Africa being stalked by an enormous lion. 1 stops and get his new trainers out of his rucksack. The other asks "So, you think you can run faster than that lion?"   "No way my friend, but I can run faster than YOU!"
  3. Obscure car brands

    Just bought a Lancia Musa. Drives like a dream and has all the latest bells and whistles. Anyone have any experience with Lancias?
  4. What made you laugh today?   Say what you like, but this is REALLY funny.
  5. The English Teacher's Corner

    For the students who think they understand Present Pefect.   Customer in a restaurant. 'Waiter! What is this?" W. It's bean soup, sir". C. I don't care what it's been. I want to know what it is NOW!"   Good luck with the explanation!   (I've been a teacher for a long time).
  6. Jokes

    [marketing meeting] Me: shamcum Board: no Me: shampiss Board: no Me: shamblood *an hour later* Me: shampoo Board: ok yes fine
  7. A false debt ( buying online )

    Good advice at last. As we say, "Don't let the bastards get you down!" I also suffered from this Inkaso nonsense once and gave up and paid because the charges were mounting up and I was afraid it would get totally out of control. At the time, I couldn't really contest it as my German wasn't good enough.
  8. The English Teacher's Corner

    He probably didn't talk in Capital Letters.
  9. The English Teacher's Corner

    Must have been very inspiring:
  10. Eastenders and Eichel

  11. Eastenders and Eichel

    I used to warch this when I was a boy in London. Because I was feeling a little homesick, I started to watch it again last week and was more than a little surprised that most of the characters are now either Indian or black. I am not a racist, but does this really reflect the makeup of society today in London?
  12. Living in Dietzenbach

    Surprise, suurprise!!!!!!!
  13. Why isn't German bacon like British bacon?

    Found this company and it's really good quality IMHO. You should fry the sausages for about 25 minutes.   Pretty good prices too!
  14. Need Malt Vinegar today (Saturday)

    Wow. I thought is was a REAL emergency, like for fish and chips!
  15. Don't panic! Test of national catastrophe alarm

    In the event of a national threat that everybody knows about, action must be taken. When not, these things are like car theft alarms which everybody ignores.
