Every BCBer should pay me by looking good in comparison. I set the bar low as I could.

It was kind of a joke at the time when we were posting about the JU. I don't think Steve ever signed up or posted on BCB, but we gave him a nom de BCB to fuck with people when posting pics.

Copehead did turn up to one briefly..
You could also add to those Samoan, Geezee, Phil T, Clive Gash, Markus. Probably a good half of the American posters haven't been to a jolly.


Does me meeting with sense and evil Dave not count?

I keep meaning to attend a Northern Jolly Up but never quite manage it. Which is a shame as some of you seem very pleasant, even though you are from the North.


I'm not sure a sour-faced southern gobshite like yourself could cope with the friendliness, to be honest.
