I took a bit of a break from Hibs net and have returned recently to view it and I have to say that I am dissapointed by the increased standard of postings on this site.

I prefer to make grand (sometimes inflamatory) sweeping statements and produce arguments with little or no rational thought behind them.

Can we have a return to the old ways and permit personal abuse and swearing again? Mods?

:agree: I've been struggling with style, prose ,context and witticisms for some time now and was thinking of completely reinventing my whole approach, your timely posting could be just the spur I need.

Could you perhaps favour us with some sample postings along the lines you suggest...................:wink:

Mods are what they have in another place; here we have pricks. Your elementary mistake means you are a yam and can therefore *** right of.

Absolutely. Not a day goes past when I don't think of the injustice when it was plucked from these pages.

Has anyone else looked back in anger?

I once was mistaken for a man who removes feathers from poultry.

Does anyone else think of me as a pheasant plucker?

That reminds me of a time when I got chatting to a guy who was offering free samples of chicken bites in a supermarket.

I had only intended to have one taste but, having struck up a conversation, ended up back at his place, gorged on selectively-chosen and well-coated breast.

Of course, there is no such thing as a free lunch and it turns out this chicken-man had amorous motives towards me. Being weighed down due to excessive poultry consumption, I was unable to move quick enough to resist his advances.

Has anyone else just gone for a mouthful but ended up totally stuffed?

You obviously never read some of the posts on the Papal visit threads and on any thread that was hijacked to have a go at the visit. Far too highbrow.

It is very much missed. And so are all its landmark posts. I believe I lost an imaginary dog on that thread at one stage.

Does anyone else feel that perhaps we should write an open letter?

I like opening letters!

I fondly remember opening a thank-you letter from Barrack Obama after I had convinced him to run for presidency.

We had been for a few pints and some karaoke on a Tuesday night at The White House in Niddrie mains Road.

It had originally started out as a team building exercise for the Illinois senate comission - where I worked as State mascot ( I was a glittery high-heeled shoe with arms, if anyone is wondering ).

Anyhow after a few bevs, he realized he'd missed the last bus up the toon and offered him my setee.

It was during a cocktail of cinzano dry with ginger ale with fresh mint, half an eccy and the fine tunes of Air's - Moon Safari, that I convinced him to run for the head job, if it wasn't me, I'm sure someone else would have.

Has anybody else stumbled out of The White House in a silver high heel only to discover that you may have changed the future for a powerful black man?

And that be, the end of it. :grr:

This actually reminds me of some time I spent in *****lia lately.

I'm know I'm not alone in considering the loss of the calendir thread to be the most depresing thing that has happened to the Hibernian community in recent times. I'm aware that there have been some recent trifling upsets affecting some members - something to do with managers and results? Whatever, it needn't concern true Hibbies and I'm sure it didn't affect anyone on here.

When the calendr thread was lost I was cast into a wasteland of despair and depression. I left my family and job and accompanied only by a few faithful companions - Ghandi insisted on coming along as apparently Hawkings owes him money - I wandered the world attempting to find meaning and hope in life. We travelled far and wide and slowly even these few friends abandoned me. Hawkings was lost in a tunnel under the Franco-Swiss border where he was arrested whilst stealing 50p from the meter at some physics convention; Ghandi declared he was going to Chile to become a miner; Ray Bradbury disappeared when he ran off dressed as Abraham Lincoln on our time travelling fancy dress trip to the theatre in 1865 Washington.

So it was that I finally found myself friendless and alone in *****lia, in a Little Chef just off the big roundabout on the main road into Ulan Bator.

I was sitting eating my Early Starter Breakfast with extra bacon when I became aware of a commotion going on in the kitchen. Before anyone could react a gigantic chicken suddenly burst into the dining area and began viciously attacking the patrons of the table next to me!
Quick as a flash I lept to my feet and flung myself upon the fiendish fowl which had already eviscerated two of the party it had attacked. Using the lassoo skills taught to me by Chief Sitting Bull during a dull away evening game at Fir Park I threw the loops of scattered intestine around the brobdingnagian beaked birds neck and was able to slowly choke it to death before it could complete its task of slaughtering the unfortunate diners.

Well it turns out that I had unwittingly foiled a plot to assassinate the mayor of Ulan Bator using a genetically engineered chicken that had been trained to attack politicians on sight. As I lay there amid the chaos of feathers the mayor of that proud city arose from under the table and thanked me profusely for saving his life.

Never, he said in English with a broad Peterhead accent (I've since been informed this was actually *****lian, the two dialects are almost identical), would the faithfull Batorians of his fair city forget my actions that day! Whatever reward he could give me was mine to ask.
Of course I declined his offer, but ever the proud leader he insisted on some sort of token. He seized upon the briefcase of one of his dead aides and in triumph produced from its depths a photocopied picture of Jim Bowen, a 1986 hearts calendar (missing May), and best of all, a commemorative badge declaring that its bearer could now lay claim to the ancient title of Master of the city of Ulan Bator. A privilege indeed, and one I was honoured to accept.

Has anyone else ever become a Master Bator?

Extensive research has led me to believe that this is the most appropriate internet-based response to your concerns:

Yeah? Well I'm disappointed by your face. And your ma :greengrin
