    I though only my daughter was that daft, and it's always a long story with her too.

    But you are not the worst ( I think that's the generally accepted feeling ), we had one FUNster pair with a dog and 4 rats, running freely round the MH. The quote that says it all "oh, if they pee on you it's a sign they like you".

    And we have a FUNster who has a pet Macaw ( well, it's big, with a dangerous beak but a nice temperament even if it does chew glasses ).

    Those Hymers are much loved, you may need some effort to find a good one but worth it.

    Then you'll be glued to Europsport right now I guess. Shedloads of bikers on here, though not all racing fans. It's amazing just how many motorhomes carry a motorcycle of some sort.

    But football, what kind of a sport is that, all it involves is moving a small amount of slightly compressed air around a field. FFS I can do that in my sleep though I have to say a good fart is best enjoyed when awake.

    If ever there was a way to drag a thread into total disrepute, this is it and once again, its the same person that's done it before that manages to do it again.

    I'm sure that some people throw a neck full of booze down themselves before they get on to the web. Why else would somebody act in such an objectionable manner.

    So tell us all, what do you find objectionable, taking the piss out of football or the word "fart" ?

    Don't let the non believers get to us Jim...:thumb:

    Some people like my mate Brian "this Solex doesn't have brakes" Hilldweller like watching machines go around and around as quickly as they can and ending up in the same place as they started... :Rofl1:

    Seems very odd to me but they seem to enjoy it... and the odd fa*t would go unnoticed given to awful racket the machines make... :Wink:
