MERRY HOGSWATCH!

Thank you for the great presents, Hogfather! And have a nice day, drink a nice cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the rain/sun/snow you see outside!

And thank you, Beth and Tony, for the idea and for the organizations. This was simply amazing, the fantastic ambiance (as the French would say) in the forum, the wait for the presents and finally, the day we were allowed to open it.

This is a great forum with fantastic people here! :wink: I'm happy I took part in this Hogswatch-present-exchange. And Tony, what do you think about Valentine's Day present exchange? And for Easter? :lol: We should do this more often!

So there`s this bird called Mary, yeah?

She`s a virgin ("Wossat then?") She`s not married or nuffink, but she`s got this boyfriend, Joe, innit? He does joinery an` that. Mary lives with him in a crib dahn Nazaref.

One day Mary meets this bloke Gabriel. She`s like `Oo ya lookin at?` Gabriel just goes `You got one up the duff, you have.` Mary`s totally gobsmacked. She gives it to him large `Stop dissin` me yeah? I ain`t no Kappa-slapper. I never bin wiv no one!`

So Mary goes and sees her cousin Liz, who`s six months gone herself. Liz is largin` it. She`s filled with spirits, Bacardi Breezers an` that. She`s like `Orright, Mary, I can feel me bay-bee in me tummy and I reckon I`m well blessed. Think of all the extra benefits an` that we are gonna get.` Mary goes `Yeah, s`pose you`re right`.

Mary an` Joe ain`t got no money so they have to ponse a donkey, an` go dahn Befflehem on that. They get to this pub an` Mary wants to stop, yeah? To have her bay-bee an` that. But there ain`t no room at the inn, innit?

So Mary an` Joe break an` enter into this garridge, only it`s filled wiv animals. Cahs an` sheep an` that.

Then these three geezers turn up, looking proper bling, wiv crowns on their `eds. They`re like `Respect, bay-bee Jesus`, an` say they`re wise men from the East End. Joe goes: `If you`re so wise, wotchoo doin` wiv this Frankenstein an` myrrh? Why dincha just bring gold, Adidas and Burberry?`

It`s all about to kick off when Gabriel turns up again an` sez he`s got another message from this Lord geezer. He`s like `The police is comin an` they`re killin all the bay-bees. You better nash off to Egypt.` Joe goes `You must be monged if you think I`m goin` dahn Egypt on a minging donkey` Gabriel sez `Suit yerself, pal. But it`s your look out if you stay.`

So they go dahn Egypt till they`ve stopped killin the first-born an` it`s safe an` that.

Then Joe and Mary and Jesus go back to Nazaref, an` Jesus turns water into Stella.
