What will you aim for instead? Substantial botching? Serious bungling?
:Hey! redcard You just leave poor Bungle out of this, Bobbers!
And not a word against George either nono , or I'll send him round to beat you up!

That Zippy, however is fair game as far as I'm concerned. He was responsible for some frankly awful things every time he undid his zip. irked

I've posted about that Bungle fella in the past, filthy bugger he was grumpy

I did manage a good bit of botching the other night though. A £450K autoclave, about £20K of stuff curing inside and the bugger decided it had had enough.

Couple of yards of nylon tube, a length of electrical cable, some duct tape and a couple of cable ties - yay, it's working again. Marvellous.

The chicken meals are 'progressing', glenrobbo. Tried a 'butter chicken with bombay potato' the other evening, it was ok but had a suspicious aftertaste of acetone. We'll need to work on that one.

Top bodging there Bomma! thumbup
Marvellous what you can achieve with a bit of duct tape and a few cable ties.
Probably works well with obstreperous children as well. wink

As for the acetone aftertaste, I presume you hadn't just been removing your nail varnish whilst waiting for the butter chicken to complete the cycle? Just sayin'. smile

So what's the best cycle for a full 8-place setting bone china dinner service and cutlery* set, Bobbers?
And do you recommend the 800 or the 1000 rpm spin speed?

And is it okay to load the crystal goblets at the same time, or do they require a separate programme?

* Nope, nothing to do with Delta Charlie. nono

Is it Rinse Aid Day today? scratchchin

DC needs to be careful: CC has a formidable array of emoticons.

Just sayin'.

That's very unfair to say it was Dicky calling CC, that sounds more like Battert if I'm honest!!

Why are you concerned about the nose beacon situation glenrobbo???

He'd like that. He'd sauté it and serve it with cauliflower steaks and a black pudding coulis.

I.ve just seen on Mastermind ,they don't reveal the contestants scores to each other ,just the tv viewers.

All cloak n dagger.

So what's your scopegoat in life? Hmmm?

As for my red nose, it had been coming along so well, but suddenly everybody seems to have outdone me and made mine look like a pale pathetic hooter.

Perhaps I should have gone to Hooters instead of trying to grow my own... paperbagweeping

Let me just ask you all:

If you had a choice of noses, which ones would you pick?
