I sincerely hope these two are NOT breeding.

They have already, because they have a daughter (presumably biological). The question is, will they breed again? :|

Gawd, I hope not.

What mesmerised me was that if you shaved the husband, he'd be the wife!!

You noticed that too?

Maybe they're related. It'd explain a lot. Especially if their parents were too. :mrgreen:

Sitting along the beautiful, scenic, Highway 3o in Southern Idaho, is the community of Buhl. Otherwise known as the "Trout Capital of the World" due to the high production of Trout at the many fish hatcheries in the area.

I assumed that was how it was pronounced, too!!

The fact itself doesn't really leave me speechless, but that GL seems to be 4 · 10⁹$ richer now. Crazy.

I don't think it's all in cash.

Reports I've heard are cash and shares.

Having said that, it's silly money.

Wonder if George could lend me a tenner until payday? ;)

My reaction to the above was to make a snarky remark in the related thread in the TV and Film forum:

"I feel a disturbance in the Force. As if millions of Star Wars fans suddenly cried out OH F**K!"

It's tiny, Joolz. Looks like a casserole dish from here!

It looks like a single stick. :roll:

Love the joke, Joolz, but you ever see the family tree of the Saxe-Coburgs? It's not so much a single stick or a crane's foot as much as a tangled bramble of incest that spirals down into pants-on-head oblivion. :?

Anyway, more sordid details emerging during the Jimmy Savile saga...

I would ask "Will the horrors never cease?", but I think it'll be a long time before they do. Ugh.

Oh is that what it is? :roll:
