On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me...........
Twelve laps of Jerez,
Eleven pairs of underpants,
Ten Michelin Pilots,
Nine ladies dancing*
Eight hundred cc M1,
Seven gears a-changing,
Six piston calipers,
Five litres of Motul,
Four cylinders roaring,
Three wrench monkeys,
Two hundred horsepower,
And a Valentino Rossi AGV!

*so why change that one!

Seasons greetings to one and all!

Hark, the Herald (ancient) sings,
Mud and gunge beneath its wings:
Peace on earth and mercy mild -
Mods and Adam reconciled?
Joyful all Backroomers rise,
'Let's all get TDCis':
Often doth DD proclaim
'Back to motoring again':
Hark, the Herald (ancient) sings,
Hail to Hugo's Disco dings.

PoloGirl, by all adored,
With your Golf - how sad - you're bored:
Late in time behold him come,
Reincarnated Polo's hum.
Veiled in flesh Pugugly see,
Fast, in his 535D.
'Slush-pumps out' boy-racers yell -
'Jesus drove E-manual'.
Hark, the Herald (ancient) sings.....
Wish I still had my four rings.

Someone have a go at a third verse....

Happy Christmas everyone - if you don't get five gold rings, four chrome ones will do nicely.

Many thanks all for the free advice dished out this year, and to the mods for their hard work in keeping the BR a harmonious place. Mince pies all round.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas. My first back in the UK for 7 years.... quite looking forward to it.

Something to hone your reactions for, be it to do a Ghostrider round the Peripherique, beat your nephew on the Play Station, dodge the kamikaze grannies in the January sales, or simply avoid the washing up.

The objective of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit by the blue blocks or touching the black walls. I am told that to last longer than 18 seconds is highly unusual, and that the US Air Force expects potential pilots to last for at least 2 minutes.

Enjoy!

Happy Christmas one and all.

22.3 seconds on my second attempt... it's just a case of knowing which way the blocks are going to go right at the start.

Hi,

A quick check through my records for 2006 showed that I dealt with the usual throng of alleged wrong-doers, Death, mayhem and the ridiculous hallmarked my professional year. Depressingly repetitive - anyway as I sit here counting the days to when I can break away (best guess is November 2009 aged 50 and a little bit), please go about your business as carefully as you can, I have learnt one thing from nearly 25 years in the Business, that accidents are ultimately random in nature -don't let you or yours be the victims if you can avoid it in anyway.

I really mean what I'm about to say next (a much used cliché though) have a peaceful Christmas and may the next year bring you prosperity and happiness.

And whether you drive a Morris or a Mercedes an Austin or an Audi enjoy your motoring.

Sometimes when I have been complaining about something seen on this site various friends, and my wife often, ask me why I 'hang out with those people'. The answer is: because for the most part they share one of my major interests. The variety of attitudes and spread of knowledge and experience are what render the site consistently if not invariably interesting. And quite a few BR posters have wit, humour or both (they aren't quite the same thing).

I don't mind being censored because I am well aware that among my pearls of wisdom and brilliant apercus there are quite a few silly jokes and barmy, over-the-top explosions of rage and irritation. Seems to me that moderators and webfuhrers need to err on the side of caution. The Back Room is not po-faced.

So Happy Christmas to my fellow obsessives and fellow blatherers and our kindly nannies. And a prosperous New Year.

May the oil never run out.

You can all join in, if you can't sing then clapp your hands and stamp your feet.

Ready now? After three, two three...

are you hanging up your stocking on your wall
it's the time that every santa has a ball
does he ride a red nosed reindeer
does he turn up on his sleigh
do the farries keep him sober for a day

so here it is merry christmas
everybodies having fun
look to the future now
it's only just begun

are you waiting for your family to arrive
are you sure you've got the room to spare inside
does your granny always tell you
that the old songs are the best
and shes up and rock 'n' rolling with rest

so here it is merry christmas
everybodies having fun
look to the future now
it's only just begun

what will your daddy do when he sees your moma kissing santa, ahaa

are you hanging up your stocking on your wall
are you hoping that the snow will start to fall
do you ride on down the hillside
in a boggy you have made
when you land upon your head
then you will say

so here it is merry christmas
everybodies having fun
look to the future now
it's only just begun
(repeat chorus X4)

A Christmas Tale;


When four of Santa's elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones, Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mom was coming to visit.

This stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were
About to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where.

More stress.

Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the boards cracked, and the Toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys.

So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of apple cider and a
shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard he discovered that the elves had hidden the liquor, and there was nothing to drink.

In his frustration he accidentally dropped the cider pot, and it broke into
hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor.

He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and irritable Santa trudged to the door. He
opened the door and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't it a lovely
day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?"

And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas
tree.


The old ones are the best......Happy Christmas to all

>>Sorry Roger, but this was the exact same posting that I was asked to remove earlier in this thread.

Doesn't mean you had to say yes.

We're all too worried about offending others, even those with small-0minded and ridiculous beliefs and/or opiions. Sometimes people need to get over it and start to understand that they do not have to comment on, and approve, everything.

Anyway Happy New Year and a Blwyddyn Newydd Da to the Welsh guys here. I'm assured by SWMBO that that is is decent and proper.
