    Hi all we are currently in France at the moment and at first we found the locals quite strange compared to the usual friendly French faces. Then after managing to get one to come out of their house all became clear, he pointed to the fun sticker and while shaking in fear said

    el munchie est de retour

    So he advised us to remove the sticker and all is well again:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    OK I will try as I am "Munchie" he he

    Now I spend a bit of time in the chatroom. Around 10ish I excuse myself to get my supper.

    The rotten lot of ingrates then nicknamed me Munchie. Pffft

    I also love France so much so that I am moving there soon.

    So, to sum up, They are paking the tiss. :Angry:


    But never fear i will have my revenge...be afraid be VERY afraid!!! :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Ah ha, merci bien!:Laughing:

    We've now got the passport application forms, old passports were well out of date........along with the photos with the long hair and the moustache:Rofl1::Rofl1: That's Bill I mean:Laughing:, hair now gone:Blush::cry:

    Hope to make the trip across later on this year and have a good root around and see what's what:Cool:

    Just wondering.......should it not be Le Munchie instead of el munchie?
    El munchie sounds more Spanish:RollEyes:

    It's a long time since O' Level French:Rofl1: but I think it's got to be Le Munchie:Wink:

    You have to make allowance that it was translated from Weegie :Laughing:

    It is hard enough for people from "Gerry Land" to deal with English... never mind French...:Rofl1:

    (but put a golf club in his hand... well that is a different story...) :Wink:

    FORE!!!

    Gerry has spent a small "WEDGE" on a long "DRIVE" and has found an unusual local rule on the course he is on. He is only "PUTTING" other funster right on the conditions.

    Under rules of golf 24-2 - Immovable Objects (Munchie) he is allowed relief and should proceed without penalty


    Enjoy the rest of your round (holiday) Gerry:thumb:

    OK, it's got to be "Le Munchie" as far as I'm concerned:RollEyes:

    Maybe Gerry's French will have improved by the time he gets back from his hols:Wink::Rofl1::Rofl1:
