To get back on topic & just to make it clear...Edmundo Ros was a band leader, how did it end up with banned leaders? :roll:

But what about the size of that wheel on the Jensen? :shock:

It looks like it came off the Queen Mary!

Cheers - Richard

Back in the day cars tended to have serious steering wheels. In the 70's it was how small can we make them (after market ones anyway).....even I had big biceps for a while :lol:

Just to clarify .... I was referring to the cobblers I tend to spout :wink: :lol:



Cor, you 'aint 'arf 'ard work John!

I was alluding to the fact that I am a person who also talks loads of cobblers & not in a position to comment, hence the "people in glass houses" reference.

This sketch has gone on far to long; right then new sketch starting now!

Aw shucks :)

I never really got Python.

It was mildly amusing at times but I like my comedy to be simple. John Cleese was sublime as Basil Fawlty, unfortunately he's not been funny since. Those AA ad's he does are cringe worthy :shock:

I said that I was a fan!

Here are some other "celebs" trampling on the masses on their march to glory (as you no doubt recall). :wink:
