ROTFL


Sorry, not being a frequent forumer either here or anywhere else, I can't figure this one out.

Oops- just found it on a marvelous site for dummies like me.

Thanks for the answers

Late word: We'll have a PVQ. No idea yet which printing. And two other OCE's, for what it's worth. No sign of Tamo, Inver, or Tsoj, but you never can tell. Two rounds of original Needle tourneys tho (prepubs); they're pretty rare. (Betcha Stratochamp gets 'em...)

Woodburning kit, Model Kits, CrossStitch, and Record Albums, eh? You wacky guys... ;> (Got any open-mouth Dragon Toilet Seats, or 3e toilet paper?)

In addition to the Big Beautiful Burnt Brothers Banner we'll also have 3 Dealer Room banners from GenCon's last year in Milwaukee, the ones with Aisle numbers (100, 200, 300, etc). Not sure which numbers, tho. Last year's going rate (we had 3 then too) was $100-125 each. You DO need a two-story venue to display them, and they weigh at least 20 pounds, industrial-quality vinyl. (Maybe you UK folks should place proxies; we Yanks are all sure that you live in castles.)

Around here, the words "3e toilet paper" are interchangable with "Pages torn from a 3e rulebook of choice"

Gee, MikeTheBod, I thought you'd politely point out that "3e toilet paper" is redundant...

Hmm, that line IS funnier. Must be slipping....I'll be glad when GenCon is over, the thought of you guys having so much fun this weekend is distracting me....

 :lol: For the moment - we are biding our time...

On a similar note.  You US types might not know that the name of the London station into which the Eurostar cross-channel train arrives from Paris is Waterloo.  I think that is just a little passive-aggressive on our part - perhaps by way of rapprochment we could have renamed it (perhaps after a battle where we did not beat Napoleon  :wink: )

6 degrees to Judges Guild..

First you have the English and their castles
Then a quote but with screwed up source 'Monty Haul'
Which is corrected to be 'Monty Python'
Which once did an episode in German for the 'Lumber Jack Song'
Tegel Manor in found in the town of Tegel in North West Berlin, Germany
Tegel Manor was released by Judges Guild

:D  :D  :D

To the netherworld with the Frogs! You could also have called it any other horrendous French defeat (Geez, there were so many) and they would still be too stuck on themselves to take offense, and too dumb to know it had been given. Any country that has Gov't officials working to keep the language "pure" has their resources allocated all wrong. Better they should spend them on a military that won't fold like a house of cards at first challenge. We "Yanks" have bailed the French out of their own ineptitude twice in the last century, and they still think of us as something that smells bad or something. This from a country that has a hard time with the concept of personal hygiene. Their mothers WERE all hamsters.
