If you look up something on Bugzilla and it can't find it, it says "ZAROO BOOGS FOUND," which makes me want to kick some cunt's chin off.

To drag this back to that workplace pensions monster thing, he specifically does approach people in the park who own small businesses and employ people.

So...that's one thing.

I think this fictitious beast approaches self-employed people to remind them that they should get a pension.

It took me three times reading that from two different news stories to realise what the fuck she meant by that.

"Oh, she means talking."

Jaw-jaw in my head implies chewing or eating. If you're going to use part of the human anatomy to mean talking, use the most significant parts that make us speak: lip-lip, tongue-tongue, vocal cord-vocal cord.

Gawd.

It's a moderately famous[nb]Certainly amongst the target demographic.[/nb] quotation from Churchill.

In this use - patronising and hideous, but not exactly infantilising.

So it's not even original bollocks.  It's some bollocks she's nicked off someone else.

This might have been mentioned -  I find this thread almost too depressing to read...but when you create a Tumblr account (or at least when I did for work purposes) and you enter your age as being anything over 30, the suffix changes from 'Years Old' to 'Years Young'.

'Years Young'.

Oh that shit can fuck off! Right off!!

"How tall are you?"
"6 foot 1 short"

"How much do you weigh?"
"100Kg light"

Yeah, nobody does that, so cunts can fuck it with the patronising 'years young' bullshit.

The only people with a valid reason for using "years young" are those going through a Benjamin Button kind of situation as this more accurately reflects their direction of travel through time. Anyone using it who isn't Benjamin Button can go and forcibly insert their head into their mother's vagina and their feet down their father's urethra.

But it does at least signal that she's not talking about 'war war.'  Or not yet, anyway.

edit to add: I've got an installation date for "Mr Venty," mentioned a little way back in this thread; 20th April!  Oh, the twee excitement of knowing there's an anthropomorphic electric fan in the ceiling.

That's Hitler's birthday. I wonder if Eva Braun sarcastically calling Adolf "Mr Venty" had anything to do with him flying off the handle in the way he famously did.

On a lighter note it seems Innocent smoothie has toned down it's toddler speak. Well I haven't noticed anything that made me wish for a sniper rifle for a while

I always thought the branding was at least appropriate for their intended audience, because who likes smushed up fruit and veggies more than a toothless little babba?

A new baby's arrival impacts a family, told from the point of view of a delightfully unreliable narrator -- a wildly imaginative 7-year-old named Tim. The most unusual Boss Baby (Alec Baldwin) arrives at Tim's home in a taxi, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. The instant sibling rivalry must soon be put aside when Tim discovers that Boss Baby is actually a spy on a secret mission, and only he can help thwart a dastardly plot that involves an epic battle between puppies and babies.

The Boss Baby comes to Tim and has him to suck on a pacifier that transports them to Baby Corp, a place where infants with adult-like minds work to preserve infant love everywhere.
