Methinks the FAQ weekly reminder needs another short para adding.
"It is dangerous in the extreme to read postings by Steve Firth
or Peter Parry while drinking any form of liquid - particularly
carbonated - or in a public place. Failure to observe this
elementary safety precaution *will* result in damage to computer
screens and nasal passages."
The index of "trouser-wettingly funny mental images" in my head has
now been augmented, such that along with Basil Fawlty doing serious
damage to the bonnet of an innocent Austin Allegro with a small
uprooted tree and a couple of others, there's the vision of Steve
incanting "bastard! bastard!" at a soi-disant innocent Saniflo clutched
between the weakening knees. (The difference being that the former
needed celluloid to capture it, while the latter came from the sheer
magnificence of Steve's prose. If the pictures are better on the
radio than the box, then they're better yet in a text-only newsgroup ;-)
Thank you both for the best laugh in months... Stefek
