"I'm a Dominator?" Does she mean she dresses like this guy does? :roll:

I know I shouldn't, but this made me LOL.

That, my dear Bouncy, is a Dominator. Flanked by a pair of Quarks. :lol:

Okay, okay. I'll put you out of your misery. That's a screenshot from the Doctor Who story The Dominators. The trailer is here...



The trailer makes it look good, but it's actually quite a crappy story. There's one or two good special effects here and there, and Patrick Troughton hams it up, but it's definitely the worst surviving Patrick Troughton story. :roll:

I actually saw a comic once in Doctor Who Magazine where a pair of Whovians go into a video store to rent The Dominators, only to be directed to the adult section. They clarify what they mean to the video store clerk, who understands...and then sends them to another part of the adult section. :lol:

Bouncy Castle wrote:Fifty Shades of Grey (a husband’s point of view) By Pam Ayres

The missus bought a Paperback,
Down Shepton Mallet way,
I had a look inside her bag:
… T’was “Fifty Shades of Grey”.

Well I just left her to it,
and at ten I went to bed.
An hour later she appeared;
The sight filled me with dread…

In her left she held a rope;
and in her right a whip!
She threw them down upon the floor,
And then began to strip.

Well fifty years or so ago;
I might have had a peek;
But Mabel hasn’t weathered well;
She’s eighty four next week!!

Watching Mabel bump and grind;
Could not have been much grimmer.
And things then went from bad to worse;
She toppled off her Zimmer!

She struggled back upon her feet;
A couple of minutes later;
She put her teeth back in and said
“I am a dominator !!”

Now if you knew our Mabel,
You’d see just why I spluttered,
I’d spent two months in traction
For the last complaint I had uttered.

She stood there nude and naked
Bent forward just a bit
I went to hold her, sensual like
and stood on her left tit!

Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out;
My god what had I done!?
She moaned and groaned then shouted out:
“Step on the other one”!!

Well readers, I can’t tell no more;
About what occurred that day.
Suffice to say my jet black hair,
Turned fifty shades of grey.

:teasing-whipyellow: :laughing-rofl:
Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.

Rhythm and rhyme are a bit off (in what universe is "appeared" a valid rhyme to "dread"?) but funny. :D

What made me smile today was getting my teas right.
:?
:arrow:
This semester I have to identify teas (since tea to you might mean, well, tea, I guess you'd use the word "infusion".) So we get 6 to 8 herbs, seeds, etc. mixed up and then have to identify what's in it (Pre-brew, would be quite hard without a laboratory otherwise), of course. That's the exam.
We also get teas to practice with and I did two today and was surprised and relieved I found all the stuff in there. :D

That's because Pam Ayres reads these poems in a very distinctive accent. :D

Congrats of your infusions, Christian!

I see. I'm not familiar with Pam Ayres neither with his accent. Might have to check it out. :D

On tea/ infusion:
I read that fennel tea is sold as such in the UK. So, is there some sort of rule what is tea and what is not? I thought, until I found the fennel tea, that only fermented leaves of Camellia Sinensis were tea.

The Fifty Shades of Grey poem is in Pam Ayres' style but not by her as she has made clear on Twitter (28th March, no idea how to post the link here). It's funny though :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
