Herren,
Vielleicht haben Sie Gerüchte gehört, dass es sich um einen Kobold handelt
Wurde kürzlich in den Umkleidekabinen/Duschbereichen gesichtet?
Sei nicht beunruhigt !
Wenn Sie auf einen kleinen, gebückten, hässlichen Kerl stoßen, der Pfeife raucht und
als Matrose gekleidet
Es ist wahrscheinlich nur einer der leitenden Buchhalter in seiner Pause.
Gehen Sie sicherheitshalber ruhig rückwärts zur Rezeption,
Halten Sie beide Ohren bedeckt und das linke Auge geschlossen.
Wenn möglich, werfen Sie eine Pastinake auf die Erscheinung.
Wenn Sie an der Rezeption ankommen, können Sie Ihr Anliegen an die große Mathilde übergeben.
Sie ist eine erfahrene Zauberin, die sicher mit dem Eindringling umgehen wird.

The Pun-inch wars were a set of wars that were fought between the Romans and the Carthaginians. Despite covering much ground, the Carthaginans found that the Romans were leagues ahead. Rome would later adopt a system of government using one measuring device, a ruler, although other tools were nominally used in solving problems such as "If we conquer this territory, how long will the road to Rome need to be?"

When surveyed how much space there should be between traveller stops along the road to Britannia, the most common responses were IM LIVID. When asked what was the furthest they'd travelled themselves, the most common responses were MILD.

A dhaoine uaisle,
b'fhéidir gur chaill do chuarán ?
D’aimsigh Aoife Mhór an cailín gabhar péire
go luath ar maidin taobh thiar den chlampán prátaí.
Bhíodar in aice le bean bhean.
Más mian leat na míreanna seo a fháil
buail isteach chuig an bhfáiltiú agus bíodh
comhrá discréideach le Laurienne mór.
ag tabhairt aire dóibh ina cófra speisialta,
chomh maith le go leor earraí coisbheart traidisiúnta eile,
uirlisí ceoil agus an bradán amhránaíochta.
B'fhéidir gurbh fhearr leat na stains a bhaint
ó do chuarán sula bpléascfaidh arís iad?
Iarr ar L mór a spraeála Cillit Bang™ a thabhairt ar iasacht
agus an scuab scrobarnach dhaingean.

Mban,
le do thoil téamh do Drisheen ar na radaitheoirí sa seomra feistis.
an maróg dhubh bhlasta seo dhochoiscthe ag cuileoga agus sin.
Go gairid eitilt na héin taobh istigh chun féasta ar na feithidí.
Sula fada go bhfuil iomlán pandemonium mar na héin
tussle lena chéile agus ionsaí na cuirtíní lena gcos pointy.
raibh ach an tseachtain seo caite dúirt Fionnuir mhór liom
gur ith roinnt traonach a cuid calóga arbhair agus í ag sileadh ar an mbealvedere.
Cén fáth nach bhfágann do Drisheen ag fáiltiú nuair a thagann tú?
cófra speisialta ag Eibhlín Mhór chun gach cineál maróg feola a théamh.

Cubit at Hanging Rock

It is 1903 and in a rocky, sandy sort of place near Adelaide, some Appleyard School girls dressed in hard to focus swishy white dresses are posing for a snapshot near Agutter Cliff. This is part of their 'Prehistoric Peoples' class led by Mr Flint, who is talking to the girls about the unit of length commonly favoured in the ancient Near East when one of the girls abruptly disappears. Shaky camerawork and undue sweating make some scenes hard to look at. Weird music throughout. 1975. Dir: P Weir. ("Stunning" - Sofia Coppola.)

Mban,
B'fhéidir go bhfuil ag caitheamh an iomarca
ar do réimeas laethúil sláinte & áilleacht?
Cosmaidí agus cóireálacha agus go
a bheith ina draein ollmhór ar do sparán.
réiteach praiticiúil ag teastáil ó bhean an lae inniu!
Buail isteach chuig an bhfáiltiú agus ag comhrá le Róisín mór.
a teaghlach ag déanamh táirgí áilleachta
ó chomhábhair nádúrtha do na glúnta.
Ceann de na nithe is a bhfuil tóir uirthi an coilíneach Poitín.
chosnaíonn ach punta 77 ar feadh dhá cheann.
Cén fáth nach dtabharfaidh leat do chara?
Mura bhfuil áthas ort ráthaíochtaí R mór a aisíoc
an praghas iomlán níor cuireadh aon cheist.
