Blackadder's Aunt, a Puritan, on being offered a chair:
"A chair?! You have chairs in your house?" *Slaps Blackadder* "Wicked child! Chairs are an invention of Satan. In our house Nathaniel sits on a spike. I sit on Nathaniel - two spikes would be an extravagance."

Black Adder! I remember being quite young sitting with my dad and watching Black adder II.

He'd been captures by a german spy. Black Adder asks him a bunch of questions about how he. The spy. could possible know so much. the spy's response was always "I'd do anything for my country"

then they start to discuss what disquise the spy had used. The milk maid. Black Adder "but didn't we......(implying sex) german spy "I'd do anything for my country"

On and On it goes. the spy having been everywhere Black adder had been and in mulitple disquises. then it comes to a sheep. Black Adder "but didn't we...." spy "I'd do anything for my country"\

OH it was soooooo funny.

I also remember another episode where The Queen plays a joke on Black Adder and pretends they've all been horribly massacred. Blood everywhere. court lying around dead. What a demented sense of humour. Sadly. I laughed.

Yes! They made four series, but Blackadder II is my favourite. Miranda Richardson was great as Queenie, and some of Blackadder's insults were top notch.

eg. Melchett:"Some pleasant word game perhaps, to pass the time?"

Edmund:"OK. Make a sentence from these words, face sodding your shut."

Or when the foppish lord Percy was showing off a tiny trinket that he'd paid a small fortune for, saying "But tiny is the latest fashion," to which Blackadder replies, "Then you, Percy, have the most fashionable brain in London."

hehhehhehe..thats a good quote, think I will keep it.

"I can still recall old Mister Barnslow getting out every morning and nailing a fresh load of tadpoles to the old board of his. Then he'd spin it round and round, like a wheel of fortune, and no matter where it stopped he'd yell out, "Tadpoles! Tadpoles is a winner!" We all thought he was crazy. But then we had some growing up to do."

I'm not afraid of insects taking over the world, and you know why? It would take about a billion ants just to aim a gun at me, let alone fire it. And you know what I'm doing while they're aiming at me? I just sort of slip off to the side, and then suddenly run up and kick the gun out of their hands.

I love that guys quotes

"Next thanksgiving, here is a fun trick to play: When the mashed potatoes and turkey are being served, take some of both. But hide your turkey under the mashed potatoes. When your family asks "don't you want some turkey?" pull the turkey out from under the mashed potatoes and yell "I tricked you"!.

I've been reading about William Lyon Mackenzie, and his opposition to the Family Compact:

"Tories! Pensioners! Profligates! Orangemen! Churchmen! Brokers! Gamblers! Parasites! Allow me to congratulate you. Your feet are at last on the people's necks."

A like to hear a spade called a spade.

good one henry.

"folks still remember the day bob ridley came bouncing down the dirt road in his pickup. Pretty soon it was bouncing higher and higher. The tire popped, and the shocks broke, but that truck kept on bouncing. Some say it bounced clear over the moon, but whoever says that is a goddam liar"

Tommy Cooper was a very visual comedian, so it's difficult to post his best stuff, but this is one of my favourites:


Picture this; he's pointing to various parts of his torso, and saying "I went to see the doctor today, and I said 'it hurts here ,oww! here, ooo! here, ouch! and here, arghh!' The doctor said ... 'You've broken your finger'"

The memories of my family outings are still a source of strength to me. I remember we'd all pile into the car-I forget what kind it was-and drive and drive. I'm not sure where we'd go, but I think there were some trees there. The smell of something was strong in the air as we played whatever sport we played. I remember a bigger, older guy we called "Dad." We'd eat some stuff, or not, and then I think we went home. I guess some things never leave you."

As the light changed from red to green to yellow and back to red again, I sat there thinking about life. Was it nothing more than a bunch of honking and yelling? Sometimes it seemed that way.

If you saw two guys named Hambone and Flippy, which one would you think liked dolphins the most? I'd say Flippy, wouldn't you? You'd be wrong, though. It's Hambone.

If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker. It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
