This question is now closed.

I sent a text to a friend of mine a few weeks ago, telling her she was a sad sad woman.
Harsh maybe, but she had texted me about how great American Gladiators is, so I think it was deserved.

She texted back to tell me I must be sadder for loving a sad person.

My reply: Ahhhhhhh.... but love is butter melon cauliflower, and there's nothing sad about fruit 'n veg. Or dairy products for that matter.

So there you go. My answer to this QOTW. May I point out I did it the right way.

May we have a new question now?

Tufnell Park tube station
7:30 am this morning. No fucker there.

Got on the tube. Had a whole carriage to myself.

Got off at Euston. There could've been tumbleweeds blowing across the platform, it was that deserted.

I enquired politely of the guard: "Quiet today - what the fucks going on?"

He replies: "Shhhhh! It's underground..."

(Fuck me, this is terrible... I haven't felt this dirty since the night I picked up Tina 'Manchild' Jones... Oh, and the tube was fucking packed as always this morning. Some cunt was jiggling with my testicles with his briefcase, as fucking always)...

One final one
Bob Hill and his new wife Betty were vacationing in Europe, as it happens, near Transylvania. They were driving in a rental car along a rather deserted highway. It was late, and raining very hard. Bob could barely see 20 feet in front of the car.

Suddenly the car skids out of control! Bob attempts to control the car, but to no avail! The car swerves and smashes into a tree.

Moments later, Bob shakes his head to clear the fog. Dazed, he looks over at the passenger seat and sees his wife unconscious, with her head bleeding! Despite the rain and unfamiliar countryside, Bob knows he has to carry her to the nearest phone.

Bob carefully picks his wife up and begins trudging down the road. After a short while, he sees a light. He heads towards the light, which is coming from an old, large house. He approaches the door and knocks.

A minute passes. A small, hunched man opens the door. Bob immediately blurts, "Hello, my name is Bob Hill, and this is my wife Betty. We've been in a terrible accident, and my wife has been seriously hurt. Can I please use your phone??"

"I'm sorry," replied the hunchback, "but we don't have a phone. My master is a Doctor; come in and I will get him!"

Bob brings his wife in. An elegant man comes down the stairs. "I'm afraid my assistant may have misled you. I am not a medical doctor; I am a scientist. However, it is many miles to the nearest clinic, and I have had a basic medical training. I will see what I can do. Igor, bring them down to the laboratory."

With that, Igor picks up Betty and carries her downstairs, with Bob following closely. Igor places Betty on a table in the lab. Bob collapses from exhaustion and his own injuries, so Igor places Bob on an adjoining table.

After a brief examination, Igor's master looks worried. "Things are serious, Igor. Prepare a transfusion." Igor and his master work feverishly, but to no avail. Bob and Betty Hill are no more.

The Hills' deaths upset Igor's master greatly. Wearily, he climbs the steps to his conservatory, which houses his grand piano. For it is here that he has always found solace. He begins to play, and a stirring, almost haunting, melody fills the house.

Meanwhile, Igor is still in the lab tidying up. His eyes catch movement, and he notices the fingers on Betty's hand twitch. Stunned, he watches as Bob's arm begins to rise! He is further amazed as Betty sits straight up!

Unable to contain himself, he dashes up the stairs to the conservatory. He bursts in and shouts to his master:

"Master, Master! ... The Hills are alive with the sound of music!

A German guy
approaches a prostitute and says " I vish to buy sex vit

"OK" says the girl, "I'll charge 100 quid an hour"

"Is goot" says the German, but I must varn you, I am a little kinky"

"No problem" she replies cautiously, "I can do a little kinky"

So off they go to the girl's flat, where the German produces four
large bedsprings and a duck caller.

"I vant you to tie ze springs to each of your limbs."

The girl finds this very strange, but complies, fastening the springs
to her hands and knees.

"Now you vill get on your hans and knees."

She duly does this, balancing on the springs.

"You vill please blow zis vistle as I make love to you."

She finds all this very odd, but figures it's harmless, and after all
the guy is paying.

The sex is fantastic. She is bounced all over the room by the
energetic German, all the time honking on the duck caller. The climax is the
most sensational she has ever experienced, and it is several minutes before
she has recovered her breath.

Finally she gasps "That was totally amazing....... what do you call

"Ah", says the German, "Four-sprung duck technique"

Count Dracula
is on the pull round town one night. He spends the night drinking Bloody Marys in various clubs and biting on unsuspecting women's necks. He is heading for home, wandering down the street sometime before sunrise.

Suddenly he is hit on the back of the head. He turns round and sees nothing, but at his feet there is a small sausage roll. "Mmm" he thinks "Vhat is going on here?"

A few yards further on and.... BANG. Smacked on the back of the head again! He whirls round as quickly as he can, nothing but a small triangular sandwich lying on the ground. How odd!

A few yards further along the street and... CRASH! Smacked on the back of the head again! He whirls round again. Nothing! He's getting really angry now and only half surprised to notice a cocktail sausage lying on the ground.

He stands and peers into the darkness of the night. Nothing. He walks a few yards further on when he gets a tap on the shoulder. With a swirl of his cape and a cloud of mist, he turns round quickly. He feels a sharp pain in his heart. He falls to the ground clutching his chest, which is punctured by a small cocktail stick laden with a chunk of cheese and a pickle.

On the ground dying, he looks up and sees a female. With his dying breath he gasps, "who the fack are you?"

She replies:

Buffet, Buffet the Vampire Slayer

With apologies to the chairman of the board
And now, the end is near;
It’s time to get, a brand new question.
My friend, Ill say it clear,
Ill state my case, of which Im certain.

I’ve read this question through.
I’ve read everything you’ve had to say;
And noticed this, and only this,
You did it the wrong way.

Good puns, I’ve found a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I noticed each and every slip;
Each dreadful joke on this in-formation highway,
And noticed this, and only this,
You did it the wrong way

Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
When I laughed, but they were few.
But through it all, there was no doubt,
You fucked it up, you blew it out.
I faced it all and still you all;
Did it the wrong way.

Ive groaned, Ive cursed and cried.
And I feel you’ve been abusing.
And the few, good puns aside,
I found nothing too amusing.

To think I did all that;
And it was gay – (not in a good way),
Oh B3ta, with a three,
You did it the wrong way.

For what is a question, what has it got?
Well this one, really has naught.
To say the things it truly asked;
Very few managed the task.
The record shows this question blows -
You did it the wrong way.

I am tempted
to go through this thread and put every single person who doesn't know what a pun is (with one notable exception, because even the best of us are allowed to make mistakes) on ignore.

That should also help filter out the shit from future QOTWs too.

What we need is a forum where we can
exchange views and opinions about what's best as QOTW topics. Somewhere we can get heated in a safe environment without actually comming to blows, where the dangers of any physical contact are negated completely. How about introducing a cash prize for the B3tan who wins QOTW? And how about a forefit if someone comes up with the shittest post of the week, something nice and tame like a good shooting... Only we'd all have to agree on who wins and who gets the bullet.


We need to mass-debate until we reach a mutually satisfactory money-shot situation.

Fuck me... I'm so sorry...

Does anyone remember a good few years back when Gianni Versace got shot?

The Daily Sport ran a headline of "Shoots You Sir!" whereas all the other papers ran headlines like "Leading Fashion Designer Gunned Down at Home" because they were actually places where journalists work to try and report news stories rather than a thinly veiled attempt to disguise a soft porn magazine as a respectable daily newspaper for retarded builders who are too chickenshit to simply stump up the money for a copy of razzle and don't understand that you can get all the free grot you want off the internet.

Back when I was doing my GCSEs I really struggled to figure out how and when to get my studying done. Luckily two friends of mine really helped me out so I ended up doing OK.

Shop Haunting
Have a pearoast

When he was a bit younger, my brother got a part time job at a fishmonger's. Really unpleasant work - gutting fish, throwing away the guts and making them look presentable for the customers. The owner of the shop used to pay well though, purely because the job sucked and that was the only way he'd get someone to stay there long enough. Fish gutting and scaling is an art, and you need practice in order to stay good at it.

Now, having spent a bit too much on beer one week, brother dear was needing some overtime pay. And stayed late for three nights in a row, catching up on fish gutting. Nothing happened on the first two nights. On the third night, so I'm told, it was creepy. It was summer, but the inside of the shop was cold. Not just the fish storage or the counter but the whole shop. This wasn't solved even by turning the heating on.

He kept hearing whispers. Fragments of words in the background, always coming from the shop front. Every time he went out there, no-one was there. Obviously, after a while you'd get a bit creeped out.

After finishing up, he heard the whisper one last time, saying something like "hello?". He went out to check... and saw something there. A thing, in a black robe, transparent. Like the stereotypical image you have of Death. But stinking of fish.

It stuck a finger out at him and said in a loud clear voice.

My Engineering Mathematics lecturer (all good stories start like this) was explaining how to convert from cartesian to polar co-ordinates during multiple integral calculus doing mathsy things.

In his west country accent, he went on to explain
"... so you get arrrr de arrr de theeterrrr"

and kept repeating "arrr de arrr de theeterrrr"
amongst many a titter from the group of students in the lecture room.

It was the closest approximation to pirate maths I am ever likely to encounter.

Also, seeing as that was a fairly dreadfull story, have a joke:
A mathematician and an engineer were each tied to chairs. A naked woman stood an equal distance from both of them. The two men were told that the distance between them and the woman would be halved every five minutes. The mathematician cries out "Oh no! I'll never get there! I'll just keep getting closer until I'm an infinitesimal distance away."
The engineer calmly states "I'll get close enough for all practical purposes"
