Here's one that Alvis did years ago, couldn't let this build carry on without at least giving everyone a look at the master's work!

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Are you sure that's the correct wording, Chris? ;)

OK, OK a stunning barmaid in a gorgeous Sicilian hotel. I just assumed the term "barmaid" was prohibited under some part of the Equal Opportunities Act . Mind you we are talking about Sicily where they do seem to have a rather old fashioned attitude to women, especially good looking ones. Interesting to watch it all play out at times. I've seen a few young ladies give the gent a right thump  :thumbsup:

The only 'foreign' holiday I ever had, with my then girl friend Jill, was to Majorca, literally on the spur of the moment as we found out we both had the same week free and went to my tame travel agent and asked 'Where can we go NOW?' We flew out on a Spantax Convair Coronado  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: ;D ;D and back on a DC9.

But back to the story...... While exploring Las Palmas some ne're do well pinched Jill's rather ample bum, but she was the same height as me, was quite heftily built, and was a Nursing Sister as well. BAD move on his part as she turned round, faced him up and decked him with one blow.  ;D :o

While lying on the pavement, somewhat stunned, the bloke, obviously from the West Midlands by his accent, said 'Yow ought to lock 'er up mate, she's dangerous!', to which I replied 'Only when she's riled.........'.  ;D ;D ;) ;)

He He!  My wife who was back then my girlfriend, clocked this fellow down in our local pub (in Poole). He had called her some nasty name so she whipped around and landed a punch right in his face and he went down like a sack of potatoes. We found out later he collected a broken jaw for his troubles ---

:wub: And as an added bonus she's reminded me of a build idea that stalled.  :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Sense doesn't come into it. People are
more scared of how complicated crap
actually is than they ever are about
whatever's supposed to be behind the
conspiracy."
