I knew it was all about length. She kept telling me "no", but I knew she was lying.

so that's where everyone was! i thought it was kinda quiet this weekend.

It's like angel hair pasta, but with excrutiating burning and no sauce.

Arrrrg Chris you beat me to it!

"When I was at university we had a nude stinging nettle rolling competition and it was the best thing ever"

whatever happened to keggers?...

Beer! And everything comes out green for a few days. What more could you ask of any competition?

KEY QUOTE: "And so they had a competition. They're both dead now."

Second key quote:

"They taste totally foul, and everything comes out bright green for a few days afterwards."

The winner was quoted as saying, "ARRRGH! Grrbln tkfusn mrawblin ngomishln fngrskn!"

Smart competitors squash the leaves into tight little balls...
