A kind of corrugated surface against which people used to rub their clothes while washing them. These were used as a kind of home made percussion during the skiffle boom, played with thimbles on fingers.

I was completing Fonz's sentence for him. :)

Senseless, meaningless, futile.

Fruitless, unproductive, stupid.

Silly, useless, absurd.

Irrelevant, worthless, ineffectual.

The sad thing is,to be fair, it could equally apply to the Tories.

Dwight Eisenhower never voted until he voted in an election until he voted for himself for president.

That Clive Gash doesn't actually understand the difference between :

a) I can see that you've posted, and
b) I've read what you've posted.

Incredible that one with such an extraordinary elevated opinion of his own intelligence hasn't worked out the difference yet.

Thick cunt :lol:

Oh and now I'm going back to just not even responding in any manner whatsoever to his trolling so, sadly, he will no doubt be doing his utmost to troll/ruin every thread he thinks he has justification to do so with.

Sorry - but he's your friend, not mine :D

I boiled some new potatoes whole to make potato salad and after I cooled them off in a bowl of cold water I squeezed them with my hand and the meat just popped out of the skins and I easily chucked the skins into the garbage.
