Picture a giant mustachio'd ex-copper, and put these words in his mouth. [20080211|11:42]

Quote of the weekend, which I don't think requires any context:

"As a Yorkshireman, I don't mind the occasional ferret down me trousers, but I was having none of that squirrel."

Quite. Squirrels are much too fond of nuts.

Note to self: Not immune from spit-takes at stupid o' clock. At least I take creamer in my coffee? Makes it burn a little less.

Yep- I had to run for paper towels and follow up with windex, myself. ...just managed to miss the mac and hit the second monitor.

Ha! I noticed your userpic as I was about to hit post! If I hadn't already been smiling, that would've been two in a row!!!

Maybe I should make a new tag. "BEWARE: FUNNEH" or some such.

Might could help. Though when I do my morning browse, I think I'm too stupid to read tags so I'd be getting what I deserved anyway.

You don't think that requires any context?

I'm just hoping this is all some kind of euphemism and not an actual discussion of the pantal pros and cons of furry creatures.

It was indeed a literal discussion. However, I believe the squirrel was merely in pursuit of revenge, not nuts.

I think any context would just make that BETTER.

I reckon the trousers he was wearing were too tight for a squirrel to fit in there anyway.

But at least the squirrel would have motivation. I mean, ferrets don't even like nuts, do they?

...yeah, going to hell.

Yorkshiremen

I'm one of them.. A Yorkshireman I mean, and I've never 'ad a ferret down me pants neither. That's still the best laugh I've had all week though...
