As someone who doesn't get Unknown Pleasures I think we can safely ignore your "input" on difficult and distressing music, especially seeing as you don't even appear to have heard the album in question.


Actually, that's not an unfair comment. I'll accept that one.

Having said that, this idea that you've been pushing for several days now that 'difficult and distressing music' is in some way superior to fun, fairly mainstream music is misguided to say the least. But that's something you'll never see - and I don't envy you that one bit.

Isn't there room for both in this big, crazy mixed up world?

What King Feeb failed to notice was that my reply was an humorous aside to a post about whether Tesco's Tomoato or Brown sauce was better.

Sometimes ones attempts at humour go right over the heads of others, but I thought in this particular case I didn't need a row of lols and winkies because it was so bloody obvious it was an exaggeration .

Apparently not, I will lard my next attempt at humour with as many emoticons as possible so Feeb can enjoy it as well.

I cut that from Treasury of mirth before it gets deleted.

I don't mind having my words taken out of context to poke fun at me on this thread when people can go back at look at them in context and see I was joking.

But to then have that transposed to the Treasury, where it will never be in context, as an exemplar of shining wit grates a bit.

I'm pissed off that something that is obviously a joke has been taken out of context to make me look like an even bigger twat than my normal posting does.

It is not as if I need that sort of help.

But I think WOUNDED may be over egging the pudding a bit. I would have left it in the treasury but it is obviously going to be removed and i wish to register a complaint.

I am going to listen to I Wish I Knew What Dress to Wear by Ginny Arnell to cheer myself up.

With interest in Copehead's pitch rapidly waning, and no less than three BCBers declaring themselves out, Copehead faces an uphill struggle to convince everyone that his theories and thoughts are correct.

By playing the "offended" card over the Treasury Of Mirth posts, can he rally support from the remaining BCBers?

Just because I get fuck all camera time on this show and am rather patronised as the only woman and therefore have to prove that I am more of a hard-nosed bitch than any of the other panellists, I'll say this loud and clear:

I'M OUT

Ah'll tell ye where ah am with this. Frankly, ah think it's a ridiculous idea fae start tae finish. Naebody in th' day's market wants over-literate sloganeerin' Welsh rock when they can huv big mutton-chop glam rock stompin'. Ah'm appalled that yir wastin' mah time wi' such an idea.

Fir that reason, ah'm oot.

Things are looking bleak for Copehead. With Theo Paphitis, Deboarah Meaden and Duncan Bannatyne also declaring themselves out, Copehead's only chance lies with stripey-sock wearing twat Peter Jones, James Caan't and guest BCBer, Robbie Fowler.

Can any of them save Copehead's floundering bid?

Hello Copehead, I'm Peter. I like it. I'd like to invest in your crazy notion but I'm going to need your knackers in a sling. Do we have a deal?

At last, some light at the end of the tunnel for Copehead. But hello, what's this? Here comes Django to pour a full tub of Saxa on Peter, putting Copehead back to square one. Will any of the still living BCBers step in?

This hypothethesisis interests me, but I wonder whether it can really work in a high street retail environment. Sod it, I'm Welsh too (bet you didn't know that, er, boyo), so here's a million quid.

In a surprise twist, James Caan't has broken the BCB Den rules and offer well over the alloted money assigned for investing. Will any of the other BCBers be forced into a change of mind given James' generous offer?

You have the affront to stand here in my presence Copehead, and you cannot tell me the projections for crazy ideas in years 3 and 4?

I am very sorry, but I have just been informed that this so-called Welshman Coppicehead is not a creationist and has some bizarre theories on the formation and population of the earth, denying the only sane explanation that it was in fact Mark Lester using the conduit of Michael Jackson who is responsible for all human life. Plus, a quick call to my industry expert shows that I had previously confused the Manic Street Preachers and Janet Street Porter, the former indeed being shit except the Holy Bible which I am informed is also shit but in a dark and foreboding manner. Therefore, my offer is retracted. I'm out.

Two bitchslaps in a row for Copehead and he's sent reeling. With all possibility of any serious investments beginning to slip away, Copehead needs a miracle to turn this around.
