Meh. When it comes to Stoke-On-Trent news, that's nothing!

Cheers! (And, "yikes!" :eek: )

Yes, but did he have to pay $50 and pick up the trash, followed by a thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat?

To be fair, Leek isn't part of Stoke, it's a small market town in the Peak District (with a notable beer/pub culture). It's a world away from Meir which is more your classic rust belt (or "crocks" belt I guess, since it used to be potteries) district.

I can sympathise with the angst against BMW drivers though...

Young people finally developing taste?

Never understood the hard seltzer. Figured it was one of those gender/age things I just didn't get. Neither of my 20 something kids liked it either so I wasn't sure what the demographic was.

As I get older I think that pretty much defines me. "I don't understand what the demographic is".

I need a T-shirt.

It took me a minute. The headline read BREWERS COMBINE FOR A NO-NO.

I thought, oh crap, what did those HBT clowns do now?

Then I realized it was a sports HL.
No-No thread is another place anyway. :)
Besides, if it makes news headlines, and goes in the Don't Do That thread, is that kinda like double posting?

What the actual heck?!
I mean, I knew I was always somewhat ambivalent about attending baby showers but now I have good reason.
And what combination of synaptic misfiring cra-cra has to happen to turn "I donwanna carry these gifts for MY unborn child" into "Immakeelyou"??!!

I want a Florida man equivalent to Wisconsin's Manitowoc Minute guy, but all his or her videos are just crazy headlines of things Floridians pulled off.

the best news:

the BigHair (wife, we're from the 80s) had appointment with the surgeon today, to find out if she's done, or has to go on to BRUTAL lung cancer treatment. she just had a lobe removed, waiting on results of testing the lymph nodes.

she was in with the doctor by herself, when her ANGEL of a PA (the one who ran interference for her in the hospital over her blood sugar) came out & told me EVERYTHING IS FINE! she's CANCER FREE!

(she also told me to "act surprised" when the wife gave me the same news)

pardon my sailor talk, but I am sofa king happy right now.
