South Bavaria you get the Wank-bahn and the Wank-autobahn, just below the Wank mountain.
Aaaand as Wanker is a good sturdy Bavarian family name you can have a wanker as your neighbor, as we did in Druisheim.
Indeed, I have oft remarked to my wife, on driving through South Bavaria, that there appear to be a number of members of the Wanker family frequenting the autobahn in that area. They are easily identifiable by their over-familiar use of the flasher switch for their headlights and their proclivity for driving in excess of 200km/h regardless of the weather conditions or traffic density.

They should take the train - the Swiss, I hear, have come up with a special train for people such as these.

Actually on that precise stretch (I assume we're talking Lindau - München here) at least 50% of them are Swiss.

Great to see the kiddies on EF amusing themselves with word play whilst Kindergarten is out for Easter vacation break.

Kind of allows me to take this opportunity to quote from Blackadder:
"How lucky you English are to find the toilet so amusing. For us, it is a mundane and functional item. For you, it is the basis of an entire culture."
So you don't give a Töss, then?

You've summed it up perfectly. Good enough for you then; agreed. You better get back to the TV screen, looks like someone is about to unveil a white dress costing the equivalent of a small African nation's GDP.....
Do you always have to be such a miserable ****er, Assassin?

This (admiteddly childish) title of a 2005 article on Soccernet still makes me chuckle...

And this stunning piece of character analysis is founded upon what? My forum presence? Obviously valid grounds to go for the virtual jugular then... you're not just bored then?

Sorry, need to get on with the real world, so many worthy causes to get on with away from the screen

The fact that you joined this lighthearted thread with nothing but snarky comments and sarcasm.

Just because you have the sense of humour of a lump of lead doesn't mean that the rest of us have to walk around in soft slippers for your benefit. This isn't the first time you've been a wet blanket, waving your superior morality, intelligence and culture for the benefit of us thickoes.

It's not big and it's not clever.

Anyway, aren't you about due for a username change? You've been Assassin for at least a fortnight now...
And there was me thinking that the majority of the forum had got over giggling at words like WANK, BUM, TIT, WILLY etc.

Or are we to assume you head down to your local supermarket of a weekend to play in the herbs and spices aisle

Do lighthearted threads not deserve some further lightheartedness too? Imagine how lonely they would become just spawning in their own juices?

I never knew that you had majored in psychology DB. Chapeau! As self appointed EF guru and informant to the masses, read your stunning character analysis again and tell all the readers that you aren't actually describing your own daring deeds on this literary menagerie.

Atleast, for the first time, DB is not picking on Newbies. Finally he developed some courage atleast, less hes been drinking this afternoon.
