Well I have <your club> against <my club> just starting...

STONE ROSES 10/10 best of the best THIS IS THE ONE

That's how I found out we are at <Olde Trafforde>...

<Return of the Special Bun>!!!

I'm going to enjoy this.

Unless you win, in which case I will cry myself to sleep for a week.

UP, SPURS!

Argg well the first mistake was cheering for my club instead of yours. If I'd cheered for the Reds then Spurs probably would have won 10-0.

<Rashers of Baconford> will deserve man of the match, but all game long <McTom in the Hay> stopped any kind of build up for Spurs, who had to rely on breaks and there were precious few of those. <McTom in the Box> even managed to make <Fred Flintstone> look good.

Four games under <Feliciano> and Spurs have conceded multiple goals, especially late goals just like before.

"Defence" was atrocious at the start, could easily have been 4-0 after 20 minutes.

The only bright spot apart from <Delicate Linen's> goal of the month was <Out of Gazzinga> proving he's a decent keeper.

<Slow Loris> back soon, a World Cup winning keeper but he keeps selling the farm at key moments in the club's history.

Anyways congratulations to <ManlyU> that was a fine game your lads played. Finer than it needed to be, in fact.

<The Good Anecdote>

I had to GOOGLE Hee Haw, but I'm glad I did. Looks like it was a great show amirite.>

Yes!

<Reminded me of an idea "I" had for a show based on a line from South Park:

CAN WE PUT A MONKEY IN IT

So far "I" have only "developed" the title. >

This reminded me of David Letterman. In one of his older shows, maybe when he was still at NBC, he had a "monkeycam".

The concept is that someone strapped a small portable camera on the monkey's head. Then the poor thing was released into the studio, which was filled with bright lights and lots of people in the audience.

The monkey freaked out and started running, climbing and jumping everywhere, and we got to see the world from the monkey's POV via the camera.

At the time I thought it was hilarious, but now I realize that the monkey was under considerable stress, which probably shortened its life by some amount.

  Paint My Dragon: <Queen of the Broken Harted>

Well, I’d have to say that was <Trashford>’s best game ever. And better still, the MOTD pundits (and maybe <Ole Gonna SoulSearchYa> himself) are finally acknowledging that he and <Anthony Marsupial> are too similar in their style and positioning to share the same pitch. How long have I been saying that?

So a week of crying for you eh? Well you won’t find me crowing too much over one good result. Not until I can say that it wasn’t a fluke with some degree of certainty (might never happen). For every one of those performances there usually follows two games of utter dross, and I’ll be amazed if we don’t get hammered by ManC at the weekend.

I can’t stand <Sean Hannity> and his disgraced mate <Bill Reilly>. Russell Brand used to take the mickey out of them mercilessly back in his ‘let’s pillory FOX’ days.

And I’ve only now realized that Hannity is (almost) the man who took the ‘human’ out of ‘humanity’. Or have I stolen that observation from Wilde?

<Your majesty is like a stream of bat’s p*ss> is one of the funniest Python sketches. We used to recite this ad nauseam on our way to school. For some reason, I always wanted to call it the Philosopher’s sketch, but that of course was ‘something completely different’, as Terry Gilliam would say …

Totally unrelated, but it popped up as a suggestion in the margin and I couldn’t resist watching …

I still find <Victor Borge> funny after all these years. I can remember my parents howling at his dry comedy quips when I was knee high to a grasshopper, and his material remains unique long after his passing.

<Pygmalion>

Well United handled Spurs and that's exactly the right word for it.

Absent one (1) flash of brilliancy from <Cantor's Traditional Jewish Delicatessan> (10/10), Spurs were helpless.

<Manchester Excited> are exciting when they actually get excited, which happened yesterday no doubt about it.

But long term, nothing is going to help Excited or Spurs until they solve long-term structural problems.

<Spurs> need a new talent scout pronto.

79 million pounds for <N'Bobbles the Ball Away Constantly>?

We can't afford another 5 years to see if he will turn out to be a <Genna Sosonko>.

He's one of the best on the squad now, but it took him 5 years to stop being a pampered, lazy, lead-footed French international who spent all of his English money on champagne baths instead of on instructional videos on how to play in the Premier League where the lads don't swan aboot in Berets and smoke Gauloises on the pitch.

I'm not waiting 5 more years for <N'Bobbles the Ball Away> to turn from Frog to Prince.

<Excited> need Robbo or a facsimile and they should throw the money into anyone's face who will supply him. 500 million pounds if necessary.

<McTomlinson> had a great game I watched the whole match and he bossed the midfield. It is a miracle of both science and theosophical clap trap to make <Fred Flintstone> look good because he is a crappy midfielder end of story. If they tie a rubber band around him and put the rubber band around <McTommy can you Hear me> he MIGHT be serviceable until they can get a real midfielder.

Also <Spurs> need to start <Hans Christian Anderson> every game or bench him. I hope <Jose Feliciano> can figure this out on his own. I don't want to have to start emailing him every day like before eh.

lol <Russel Brand> shoot me but I like him. He was great with <Jordan Peterson>: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kL6...

A debate with two winners!

That never happens in the <Premier Plague>.

Oh forgot to mention earlier congratulations! Enigmatic Finnish striker <Pikkachu> finally broke his drought and added a point to your <Erotic Fantasy Footy Team>, if I have my maths correct...

  Paint My Dragon: It’s truly amazing that <Sosonko> is getting such positive reviews … and consistently so. At Newcastle he always looked incredibly fast and busy, but with absolutely no end-product. A backwards or sideways pass was all you could expect, but maybe that says more about Newcastle’s poor movement up front, than Sosonko being out of ideas.

I agree. <McTom in the Hay> was a large, controlling presence. We really missed him in the last few games when he was injured.

Yeah, <Ndongle> seems to have tailed off after his exciting start. It’s perhaps not going to happen for him at the moment. If I was Mourinho though, I would be focussing on that midfield, primarily to get <Eriksson Mobile> recharged and make sure that <Delicate Alibi>’s new unshackled, wander about the park role can work with the others filling gaps, sharing responsibilities etc. <Flintstone> is deffo the ManU weakie right now, but they gave him a free ride and that doesn’t bode well. I doubt that Mourinho can influence the defence too much – <Vertical Tong Man> and <Altered Wheel Weld> have played together for a lifetime, so coaching is not going to help. They will lift their game as and when the confidence floods back. But the midfield might be key here too. Is there enough cover for the centre backs? Those guys are both over 30 now and tall, lumbering giants, so they may need a more mobile defensive midfielder or sweeper to add extra support. Alternatively, the wing backs may need to push in more to close the gaps. No easy solutions, but <Trashford> was getting a lot of space to get shots away.

I think Paris uses a cropped version of Rene Descartes.

The <Germany-Greece> footy match is another gem from the Python team. Where did they get the inspiration for such clever, yet wacky and surreal humour? Nothing like that had ever been done before.

Another, less revered comedy classic is the Two Ronnies <F.U.N.E.X.> sketch. Everyone quotes the ‘Four Candles’ sketch, but this one has some fiendishly clever word play as well …

  Paint My Dragon: <Under The Skin> - Brand sometimes gets too obsessed with the spirituality and consciousness topics, but minor grumbles aside, I think all of these conversations have been excellent, even if some of them were audio only. Stand out shows for me were Peterson and Prof Brian Cox.

JINX! I literally just woke up thinking aboot <Russ Brand> eh?

I always liked him, but after re-watching the <Brand "vs" Peterson> "debate" I happened to see that <Russ Brand X from Outer Space> also interviewed <The Jordan River is Very Wide> a scant two months later.

What a difference! I was wondering why <Russ> had abandoned his free wheeling, New Agey stream of consciousness style with his hands doing much of the talking.

At first I thought it was because the venue was a studio in <London> with gigantic microphones stuck in the faces of <Russ n' Jordan>. Imagine my surprise to find a surely more likely reason for <Russ's> more button downed approach this go-round.

<Jordan's> wife was sat off camera just a few feet away from him. Heh...

It's still a great interview, though less spiritually compelling due to <Russ> buttoning down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLF...

A must see if you haven't yet.

Jordan: "It's good to see you too, it's nice to meet in London"

===================

I always liked <Professor Brian Cox Crow> as well. I think we agreed on that some time ago, if I remember correctly. Probably more than once.

I haven't seen him under <The Brand> yet though, so I can't thank you enough for the heads up.

What a couple of mensches eh?

Also last night I realized I was confusing <Sean Hannity> with <Tucker "Magnus" Carlsen>

I'd not seen <Hannity> before. I don't like him either, though I only "watched" for a few seconds. I didn't like his face. If there's no sense of humor I don't stay. At least <Friar Tucker> can deliver a humorous lecture.

Well I just finished watching <Frank v Hammers> November 30 match and I enjoyed that start to finish.

Trouble with watching back issues and being terrified of spoilers is that all my "news" is old. It looks as though gaffer <Manuel Pollo Peligroso> will keep his job?

Hammers man of the match goes to <Aaron Cress Well, you could hardly deny him> for that nifty winning goal. I place <Declan Rice Krispys> second. Isn't he English? Shouldn't he be on the squad? Maybe he is already and I forgot.

<Generalissimo Francisco Lampardo> took it like a man. It's not that <Chelsea> played so poorly. The <Hammers> would not be denied.

In the dying moments <Onward Christian Soldiers Pulisic> and <When the Moon Hitta you Eye like a big Pizza Pie, that's Fikayo Tomorrrrrra> had big chances, but were denied by <David Martin> who went on to begin flopping on the floor like a seal in order to waste time.

When the final whistle blew, <Martin> took that as a cue to return to flopping on the floor, in a comical bid to assure everyone he wasn't faking. I hope he's not actually hurt. My copy of the game ended before I could find out. Naturally I can't look at the Footy news- ever- so I will never know unless the "news" crops up during another match a month from now or something.

I do half-remember that West Ham game. It was a great moment for the flying <David House Martin>, being the son of Hammers legend <Alvin Lee Martin>, and the grandson of Hollywood legend <Dean Rat-Pack Martin>. Okay, one of those may be a ‘fake’ fact.

No, he wasn’t badly injured – he may even have played again in a time period I’m loosely calling ‘my past’ and ‘your future’. Super story though, to make his Hammers debut at 33 and contribute to a fine win. His Dad will be proud.

By the way, in my version of events, his Dad, <Alvin Lee Martin> is one third West Ham centre back, one third ManU wing-back and one third legendary rock guitarist. However, documentary evidence of this proved impossible to find on YouTube.

Yes, <Declan Rice Crispies> is already an England team player, and probably the very man that <Tooting Ham> needs to play in front of their back four. Start a <crowd funding> appeal now, and you will be able to secure him for <Jose> well before <Voyager> reaches the <heliopause>. LOL. Hopefully, you don’t know when that will be. I only know because <Carl Sagan> told me.

I will definitely watch both of those <Tony Peterson> ‘Under The Skin’ appearances again. They’re quite time consuming and you have to have your ‘right head on’, but that’s no reason to be discouraged. My brain needs to be challenged on a daily basis, or it will one-day-soon shrink to the size of a walnut.

Isn't <Sot McTominay> English as well? Or is he a SCOTT OF THE ANTARCTIC? If so, I have a cunning plan to get him on our team, inspired by Canadian humorist Stephen Leacock.

Here is his idea, an idea that could work for the future glory of "This Emerald Isle":

<"If the Scots stopped drinking so much Scotch whiskey they could save up enough money to leave Scotland.">

The best thing about the "Quote of the Day" is that upwards of 110% of them were never actually said by anyone.

Of the remaining 120%, none were actually said by the attributed person.

Finally, the slim remaining cohort of 150% are incomprehensible.

Here is a scienterrific evidence:

I have two new epigrams for cg.com:

#1 - "Never get into an elevator full of drunken Scotsmen."

- Mikhail Moiseyevich Botvinnik, last Tuesday.

------------

#2 - "Never take your mother shopping for Christmas booze."

- Me, today.

Her: I want some Martini.
Me: Is it a wine, a fortified wine or a spirit?
Her: I don’t know.
Me, after combing through hundreds of shelves: … Ah, they’ve got Strawberry, Extra Dry, Rosso or Blanco. Which do you want? Her: Sweet. Sweet Martini.
Me: [Screams inwardly]

Her: Now I want some Rosé for the gardner and his wife. Me: What type?
Her: Same as I got him last year.
Me: What type was that?
Her: I don’t know.
Me: [Screams inwardly]

--------------

Blimey, you’re quick off the mark this week …

<Tooting Spam> What a performance! I very much like that <arse cam view> and want to watch all my football that way from now on. You could almost feel the anguish that those stewards were enduring by having to face the wrong direction while <Sonny Jim> scored the best goal of his career. And what a goal! His normal 100% effort becomes 150% when he senses his teammates are trying too.

And how the blazes did <Manchurians United> manage to duff up City on their own turf. Did City go Christmas booze shopping half way through the match? We actually looked like we did against Spurs midweek … like football was an easy game. That sort of thing doesn’t happen to us two games in a row.

And what a treat to see <Christmas Noël Gallagher>’s long face in the stand. Ha, ha, warms the heart. He needs to put his hand in his pocket and buy them a proper midfielder like ... Fred.

During Christmas time, there are precisely THREE kinds of <Martini & Rossi> brand Vermouth:

1. Sweet Vermouth, for making the famous "Manhattan" cocktail, named after a Woody Allen movie.

2. Dry Vermouth (for making the classic "Martini" cocktail).

3. and "Mr. Martini", featuring prominently in the plot of the famous <Jimmy Stew> movie <It's a Wonderful Life>, in which the main character consumes too many "Mr. Martinis" at the bar and hallucinates seeing an avuncular angel.

Many thanks for sharing your encyclopedic knowledge. I am a complete ignoramus when dealing with fortified wines, spirits, liquors and cocktails.

Having said that, I did once spend an entire Spanish holiday drinking nothing but "Harlem Stingers", the name being an oblique reference to a Monty Python sketch.

It started when we decided to have some fun with the resort bar staff, insisting (fictitiously) that the <Harlem Stinger> was huge in England, and then giving them a made-up-on-the-spot, recipe in order to bluff it out. Oddly, it ended up tasting pretty good, and visually, it glowed a fluorescent milky-green colour under ultra-violet light. It was so eye-catching, that the passing nightclub crowd began asking us about it and then ordering it. By the time our holiday ended, it was one of their best selling cocktails. True story.
