neoprene et al by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Apr 10, 2006 at 07:50:38 AM EST
with all the beer you make and drink, you don't have a neoprene beer huggie/cozy ? They're $1.99 at the supermarket.. Might need more than one to cover an mp3 player.. And how you'd join them (what glue to use) I don't know..

Wimmin softball.. It's an odd mix -- some very purty girls, and some ogres.

as the beer warms up. Plus, sometimes the volatiles in neoprene affect my tastebuds, I swear I can taste it in my mouth when I touch it, usually newer neoprene.

No accounting for taste. The Games is an awesome show.

Has it aired anywhere recently? I remember CBC showing it in the late 90s but only caught a few episodes and I'd love to see more. I couldn't even find it on DVD when I was living in Australia.

And as much as I want to vote for KITH it's tough with Trailer Park Boys and Coupling in the same poll.

They showed it by ad hoc (2.00 / 0) #18 Mon Apr 10, 2006 at 03:52:45 PM EST
on Channel 2 a while ago and I was able to tape it. I'm afraid of losing it since it's on VHS.

I've been looking for the DVD for a long time. It seems to have been for sale in AU, but I haven't been able to find it recently (it's not on the ABC site any more that I can find). I didn't get it then because I couldn't find out if it was region encoded.

I'd love to have it.

Although Absolutely isn't really a proper UKian show, as it ran to more than 6 episodes.

Frequently approaches genius, particularly after the first (slightly spotty) series.

It's amazing how funny the word "Bob" can be, when delivered properly...

Peep Show is very funny.

Also, I don't know about GOATSE license plates, but in the UK, GOA 75E would be about as close as you could legally get. No doubt some sad linux using wanker has already taken it as an 'ironic' joke, not realising joke is on him...

This is why USia is better by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #12 Mon Apr 10, 2006 at 10:07:05 AM EST
each state has their own plates, so 50 wankers can be driving around with GOATSE plates.

They are unique by lm (4.00 / 1) #14 Mon Apr 10, 2006 at 10:40:33 AM EST
They just have a multipart key: state of issue and number.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

since we have more licensed vehicles than people in USia.
