Famous Quotes *noise*

Ok, yes this post is noise but I hope my friends the mods will bear with me… if not.. whatevahhhhhhh.

“Whatever” …. That brings me to my subject… famous quotes…. Or in this case famous movie quotes and here are some of my fav…

“Frankly Scarlet I don’t give a damn.” Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind

“Houston, We have a problem.” … Jim Lovell in Apollo 13

“I’ll be back.” … now here it gets interesting ( in my own little warped mind )… Many think this belongs to “The Terminator” but I think the more interesting quote is from Gregory Lynch, better known to some as grynch, in the long running comedy EF.

*FLOUNCE*

My mate LiB posted a thread “You know you’ve spent too much time on the EF too long when…” and I replied “when you start taking it seriously.” Despite my signature ( a line from an Elvis Costello song, btw ) I am no longer finding EF amusing, and that of course is my problem.

****Please feel free to score this flounce on marks out of 10 and add fluffeh kittens and wabbits.

*resumeFlounce*

Re: Famous Quotes *noise*

I love the fact people feel the need to announce a flounce. You do realise none of us care right? The EF will carry on regardless and you just look like a pillock.

Just sayin'.

The less a man knows the bigger the noise he makes and the higher the salary (>120K chf) he commands.

Pssst... Grynch... you might want to change your settings to invisible so we can't all see that you're still reading this thread an hour and a half after you told us you were leaving...

Re: Famous Quotes *noise*

Another flounce? I really really believe it is the time of the month! A bit of vitamin B6 and some painkiller should do it boys!

Re: Famous Quotes *noise*

Do what I do, just slink off for a few months without saying a word, then comeback in a blaze of hilarity. Or not.

As several other quality posters do.

I wonder what kind of bee got in Grynchie's bonnet? He used to be such a nice boy... Maybe there's something in the Geneva water? Bertrand, any info?

Re: Famous Quotes *noise*




So, I thought you guys were alright.

I guess I was wrong if you don't know that the message sent to cool it simply meant that - cool it.

It didn't mean "get your panties in a wad", it didn't mean "gtfo"...


Seriously, WTF? A running conversation that carried over between Social Events AND Commercial Events into multiple threads in Off Topic as well as various other places on the forum... so, you were told to cool it.

Creating more "signal" to go with the "noise" perhaps would have helped.

Pull your panties free again and stop acting like spoiled children.

Re: Famous Quotes *noise*

I love a BB flounce - hey, why bother just taking you bat and ball somewhere else, when you can announce to the world you are throwing a hissy fit ... and everyone is really, really going to miss you, and you are misunderstood, and they will be screaming for you to come back cos the party doesn't start til you walk through the room, and advertisers will withrdaw the revenue stream, and Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are pleading cos there will be a downturn in PCs and Macs ....

Beware the door doesn't catch yer arse on the way out !
