"King Arthur: Look, you stupid bastard, you've got no arms left!
Black Knight: Yes I have.
King Arthur: Look!
Black Knight: Just a flesh wound.

Black Knight: Running away? You yellow bastard! Come back and get what's coming to you! I'll bite your legs off!

Black Knight: 'Tis but a scratch.
King Arthur: A scratch!? Your arm's off!
Black Knight: No, it isn't.
King Arthur: Well, what's that then?!
Black Knight: I've had worse."

"Are you all sitty comftybold two-square on your botty? Then I'll begin.

"Now, like all real life experience stories, this also begins once a polly tito, and Happiness Stan, whose life evolved the ephemeral colour dreamy most, and his deep joy in this being the multicolour of the moon. Oh yes. His home a victoriana charibold, the four-wheel folloped ft-ft-ft out the back. Now, as eve on his deep approach, his eye on the moon. Alltime sometime deept joy of a full moon scintyladen dangly in the heavenly bode. But now only half! So, gathering all behind him the hintermost, he ploddy-ploddy forward into the deep complicadent fundermold of the forry to sort this one out."


Narrator Stanley Unwin's first words on "Happiness Stan", which takes up side two of the Small Faces album Ogden's Nut Gone Flake

"Just about a mile from where the motorways all merge
You can view the national edifice, a monumental splurge
It's the lonesome traveller's rotgut or bacteria's revenge
The great plastic spectacular descendant of Stonehenge
And the people come to worship on their death-defying wheels
Fancy-dressed as shovels for their death-defying meals
It's the Watford Gap, Watford Gap
A plate of grease and a load of crap"


Roy Harper, "Watford Gap" (Bullinamingvase, 1977)

Re: The Quote Thread

This is the first in a series of quotes I managed to salvage (after the event) from our previous home. This is the one I was initially looking for:

"Boys, you may not be aware that there is an object attached to you that looks somewhat like a torch. Next time you're in the bath, look down and you'll see it. If you touch the globe part of that torch it will light up. But as you know, when you turn on a torch the batteries start to run down. And you boys only have very small batteries."

Roald Dahl in a TV documentary recalling a sex talk given by his headmaster at primary school

NB: This is Mr. K's rough estimate of his more accurate transcription from memory of that anecdote as included in a comprehensive and intelligent quotes thread on The Capitol Board before its moderator saw fit to delete the topic in its entirety, effectively transporting that board back to the Dark Ages.

With thanks.

Here are two classics from the fertile mind of Endless Roger aka Endless Anthropomorphism (they were originally posted on the similarly defunct Capitol Board). I hope he eventually manages to join us here!


"One of my favourite wines is a Portuguese red wine called Grão Vasco. The Endless Anthropomorphic review:
Vintage 2000. Clear ruby color; a row of tiny bubbles lines the rim. Volatile and rustic, red fruit aromas with hints of "barnyard" and, within acceptable limits, red-wine vinegar. Light and tart, simple red fruit and lemon-squirt acidity on the palate;
a sour-apple tang persists in the finish. On the rough and rustic side, palatable but
a bit harsh; but man did I get [expletive deleted] ripped on this stuff. I had a few bottles and woke up in my knickers in my neighbour's garden the next morning."



"'Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this sun of York,' said Mr. Fuzzy Whiskers, as he feasted on jelly beans. 'And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house in the deep bosom of the ocean buried,' he added, accidently spilling candy across the floor of the make believe forest.
Aaron The Aardvark giggled loudly and said, 'Oh, Mr. Fuzzy Whiskers, you are so silly. Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths, our bruised arms hung up for monuments and golly gee whiz, we've eaten all of the strawberry jam.'"


From Mr. Fuzzy Whiskers' Picnic Frolic by William Shakespeare

Wise words. I've met them two and they're very down to earth.

"Last summer, I heard 'Don't Talk (Put Your Head On My Shoulder)' played on the cello. It sounded beautiful and sad, just as it does on 'Pet Sounds.'  So now you know, if all the record players in the world get broken tomorrow, these songs could be heard a hundred years from now."
