English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

It all takes me back to when I was a lad...the Monkeys, The Banana Splits, Batman...no wonder I turned out weird!

Nobody's going to make the obvious joke... :bummer:

Bart, you liked the Banana Splits? Try this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAriBpcE6FY

It's a cover of "I Enjoy Being A Boy (In Love With You)" by They Might Be Giants. I suggest you ignore the dork lip syncing in the video and just listen to the song. :moon:

Thanks for that ADOS. I don't remember that song but the 'They Might Be Giants' version is great.

I noticed a comment down the bottom of the page:
Children today need to take more LSD
referring to the crazy nature of the Banana Splits show.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Philip Madoc has died (great Welsh character actor)...probably best remembered for the memorable:

"Vat ist your name?"

"Don't tell him Pike!"

French Comic Artist Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) - Died at the age of 83 after a long illness. Does this mean no more Mo(e)bius strips?

Duck Duck Go has Dax dressed up today in memory of him. I don't know what that outfit is supposed to be though. Did Giraud dress like that?

Roy Hunter wrote:Two time World darts champion Jocky Wilson, 62, COPD.

Jocky was famous not only for his indecipherable Fife accent, but for the fact that when Dexy's Midnight Runners appeared on Top Of The Pops performing their cover version of Van Morrison's "Jackie Wilson Said" (that's Jackie Wilson, as in "Your Love is Lifting Me Higher"), the rather misguided director put a picture of Jocky Wilson the darts player in the background (about 17 seconds into this video).


:lol: I had to watch it with no sound...cannot stand Dexy's Midnight Runners after the torture of having a flat mate who was a fan.
