Impress your guests with an ice ball cocktail.

Not too fussed about cocktails, but verily yon gentleman offendeth not mine eye.

R. Sherman

If we were to rank all the human technological achievements for, oh say, the last 5000 years, where would we place the Vajankle?

Hal

As endorsed by Doris Day.

. . . . Weeellll . . there was the time I and other associates were having a discussion by mailing list . . . and one afternoon one of us announced to everyone else that if she had to deal with just one more coworker coming up to her with the most surreally idiotic questions, again, she was going to rampage through the office with farming implements.

Always willing to be helpful, I posted recommendations.

. . . after a bit the reply came back that she wasn't entirely certain that the hallways would fit such farming implements . . .

if you’re unfamiliar with the word Vajankle, all is explained here.

I don't think "explained" is the right word.

And finally, educationally, if you’re unfamiliar with the word Vajankle, all is explained here.

I'm pressing UNSEE but nothing is happening.

David

I don’t think “explained” is the right word.

Hey, I’m bringing you the wonders of the world.


I’m pressing UNSEE but nothing is happening.

Can the Vajarmpit be far behind?

At last, a zero-gravity pop video.

That's actually brilliant.

David

That’s actually brilliant.

It is rather wonderful. I love the flight attendants.

David

There’s an official FAQ here.

Joan

At last, a zero-gravity pop video.

That's put me in such a good mood. :-)

"Tatyana Martynova and Anastasia Burdina, our S7 air hostesses, are trained aerialist acrobats."

Stop that at once. Don’t make me fetch the hose.

There was a zero-gravity porn movie made a few years ago.

David

There was a zero-gravity porn movie made a few years ago.

And as I type this someone will be Googling “zero-gravity porn.” God bless the 21st century.

Dr. Westerhaus

As you can imagine, it was quite an effort to make, as I understand the planes can only manage about 40 seconds dive and then have to level and fly all the way back up again, which takes minutes at least. So the editor will have a damn tricky job pasting that together for continuity, and the performers, presumably, must have sublime levels of self-control...

if you’re unfamiliar with the word Vajankle, all is explained here.

At first I thought they were for amputees. I was very confused.

David

I was very confused.

It’s easily done.

"Two Irishmen and a couch."
Drunken Irishmen? The Federal Bureau of Insensitive Stereotypes and Felonious Triggering will be paying you a visit. :-)

R. Sherman

Drunken Irishmen?

As the say in Dublin, "Tuesday."

Hedgehog

Drunken Irishmen...

Channeling Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men: "Is there any other kind?"

And finally, educationally, if you’re unfamiliar with the word Vajankle, all is explained here.

And even more things I didn't even realise existed, nevermind there being a market for it

"Two Irishmen and a couch"

to say nothing of the poteen.

svh

Two Irishmen and a couch...

...walked into a bar. And stayed there for a long time.

Dr. Westerhaus

I love how the balloon knot is marketed as a 'modesty cover'. It's a bit late for modesty by this stage.

Rafi

Bye bye Indie.

Vajankle.
Thanks.
It can't be mere coincidence that our host's initials are DT.

Rafi,

From "John Galt" in the comments:

The possibility that a similar fate awaits The Grauniad gives me a schadenboner.

Ha! =^D

Mr Sherman,

"If we were to rank all the human technological achievements for, oh say, the last 5000 years, where would we place the Vajankle?"

Mr Sherman, you fail to understand. All human technological achievements for the last 5000 years was FOR Vajankle.

jones

For "the" Vajankle.

Would you kindly fix David once you've finished with your Vajankle?

Ta.

dicentra ن

I have no intention of fixing David. He's fine just as he is.

David

Bye bye Indie.

What?

jones

According to the IMF supporting the guardian is just about the per capita income of your average peasant in Malawi (MEAN average).

Shouldn't the Guardian have a campaign to have that money donated there?

Fair trade of course.

Alan could just take a wage cut instead mind and sell the piano.

David

Alan could just take a wage cut instead mind and sell the piano.

But… but it’s Alan’s only extravagance.

David

It turns out that the Guardian’s Nell Frizzell is still terribly unhappy about Top Gear.

R. Sherman

All human technological achievements for the last 5000 years was FOR Vajankle.

The frightening thought is that you may be right.

mojo

Oh my. This is SURE to end well. Oh yes.

Barry simply has no clue.

Theophrastus

What?

Epistolary narcissism, that's what!

Or does it? ;)

Well, "Vajankle" has ruined this song for me forever:
