One day I was gossiping with some of the girls at work, while our little trainee sat gazing blankly into space.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, she said seriously "did you know that if you leave a steak in a bowl of coke for two days, it will dissolve?"

We just creased up laughing, but - no! You shouldn't have drunk the coke, kerrie - quickly have some ice cream to neutralise the effects! :bounce:

Someone told me not to look up blue waffle yesterday.

Well, now obviously when I read that I had to as well, Rufio! :sick: :evil: (Along with all the other members who're reading this thread, I'm sure, not to mention all the non-members who read these forums!).

This thread better get a bit nicer, or I'm going to abuse my powers and lock it [-X I want someone to say "Don't look up 'Cute fluffy baby kittens'" or something like that.
