Title: A new TV star
Post by: Mike Morgan on November 15, 2014, 02:08:43 PM
Just watching BBC1 and a trailer came on for the party conferences. About 5 seconds in, immediately after a shot of the autocue, a devilishly handsome chap with a beard and nodding his head comes into shot.  Congratulations on your tv appearance, Mr Allan Heron!

If it wasn't you Allan, you should avoid identity parades at all costs.

Not seen the tv ad, but if it's the same beard as per Jags v Celtic, April 2014, could be that bloke who wrote Das Kapital? Now that would cause confusion at an identity parade. I think the beard as per SoM, Swansea, a few weeks back was a pale imitation.  Which beard will be on show come 13 December?

Allan Heron. Our very own fashion icon. :)

Rob, it was a fairly chunky beard but I can't recall how it compared to his summer weight display look in August. Now was that the 28th or 29th? Got my ticket yesterday so I will be there on 13 Dec to check it out. Pre gig pint or two in the Uplands Tav or elsewhere?

On the telly again?   Yawn  ;)

Which t-shirt was I wearing?  There were some good shots of me wearing a Rezillos t-shirt in amongst the suits.

The April hair was considerably longer/thicker than the August variant.   It was dealt with before we went on holiday at the beginning of July but had gone untouched since the previous September when I retired.

When I was about 9, I was on TV.

I was  at the real Old Trafford, watching England play West Indies.  John Edrich scored a century, and I was one of a few who ran on the pitch to congratulate him, to get ticked off by the police.

Of course,  this was caught on TV, and when I got home, I received a right royal b*ll*ck*ng off my Dad !

Rob, a century! How many did George Best score?

6 against Northampton Town as we keep getting reminded up here.

Which pales into insignificance when compared to Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic Football Club's Ted MacDougall's 9 against Margate in the Cup, and is only marginally better than Chris Duffy's 4 for Shakers against Halifax Town in Div 4 in the 70's or 80's, at which some Bury fans went in the away end, nabbed a Halifax banner, and set fire to it behind the goal in full view of everybody including the Rozzer's.  Ahhhh, those were the days.

Here is a little teaser for all you footie fans. Who were the only two Man Utd players to play for the first team whose names were the same as flowers?

Baz, you've still not got the hang of this how to quote mullarkey have you? :)

Answering the question, I can only think of Dennis Violet, presuming he was a striker.

Bury have a Danny Rose who is a striker. Remember, Mikey Mike's reorganisation of the counties of NW England, has M/cr lying within the county of Greater Bury. Is that counted?

Ok then. You have always struck me as a sensible guy

How kind. You know it makes sense :)

True story, worked with a lovely lady by the name of Christine Ireland who's  husband's name was Barry. He was from Yorkshire and never understood the irony.

What's so ironic about being married to a 'Christine' ?    ;D

And were they related to Innes?

Talking of Innes, reminds me. We often talk about sporting folk. Luckily caught a documentary last night on THE greates sporting fella ever, ever, ever. The late, and great, Jim Clark.  One year, on the way to G20, I am going to stop off at Duns and visit the museum dedicated to him.

The Yorkshire bit makes sense. Did he put jam on his cheese?

I put jam on peanut butter. Does that count?

Haven't had the jam / peanut butter combo in years. Marvellous 8)
Title: Re: A new TV star
Post by: Barry Island on November 27, 2014, 07:26:57 PM
But it has to be said that is a combo straight from the USA not from the County that bugger Boycott built.

Horseradish and mackerel - yes
Horseradish mixed into a baked pototo - yes
Horseradish and marmite - c'mon Rocky, you're taking the p*ss

Bananas and peanut butter

Post by: Colin Salter on November 28, 2014, 05:26:16 PM
NOW you're talkng - bananas and peanut butter, not that jam nonsense. At school we used to put marmalade on our sausages, but I think it was just a way of making both sausages and marmalade remotely palatable.

I know someone who boasted putting Marmite on his penis won him a lot of fans.
