Bloody hell Mad! :shock: How many ex-girlfriends have you got? A Dutch one, the Christian one, the one you married (US I think), the one you took to that pub with the naughty name, to name just 4 off the top of my head. :lol:

Eddie Izzard did a TV programme called Mongrel Nation a few years back. He learned olde English and went to Friesland and bought a cow (which is what he intended to do) as the guy understood what he was saying near enough. Oh, Eddie is dyslexic.

I bet he has a few of those too Meer :wink:

Don't you take any flak off this lot Mad! You are single hun..... "collect" to your hearts content! :wink:

I can tell you.... its not a one way street.... it gets expensive having a boyfriend too! There's.... things to buy... stuff....

What do they call it?... A "fluid collection?" One that flows... one in, one out, ever refining or upgrading.... :wink:
