ohmigod it's in the water

The latest gem from the weird website conservative home ('please god nowhere near my home' as I fervently pray each night.)


"TV historian Andrew Roberts told yesterday of the day the Tory leader heroically plunged into the sea off the south coast of France to save him from a school of huge, stinging jellyfish." - London Evening Standard

Imagine the shock of bumping into a poisonous, slimy creature in the sea - or a jellyfish, for that matter. You won't get me swimming off Bournemouth this week.

    heh. Sounds like a job for The Codfather.

    Just been reading about how the Tories now love gay people and the NHS. Is your lot going to fall for this do you think? Take it from an American: conservatives will say anything to get elected. And unless it's "we hate fags and women and blacks and we want absolute bloody power so fuck off," then they're lying.

    or even a large man to hold the tosser underwater for a while. can't imagine why nobody did it as his school - didn't they read Tom Brown's Schooldays?

    well VS, as we fell (myself included) for the present incumbent, I would say the door is open to all kinds of the little wibbling creatures form places we'd rather not think about - like Eton.
    Still, I met Cat Stevens last night... or Yusuf, I should say - I was really excited until I realised it wasn't Mohammed Yusuf (perhaps the hottest batsman in world cricket as of course you know). Though to give him his due, he was very nice and smiled a lot.
    But he didn't sing any songs.
    Or hit Steve Harmison out of the ground.

    I got stung (bit?) by a jellyfish when I was a kid - and still have the scar on my leg more than 30 years later.

    I wonder what constitutes 'giant' as far as jellyfish. My attacker was about a foot long in the body, plus dangly bits (although I barely remember the details now).

    And another attack by a blue jellyfish, much smaller, blue round bubble, a small frill, with a big long tail that looked like platted rope, that one whipped me across the ankles in the shallows.

    Ah, but this was all back in aussieland, where every damn critter seems to be poisonous.

    Stormy - In his article (appearing fortuitously on the eve of the Conservative Party Conference!) Andrew Roberts says they were too big to get in a bucket (perhaps that was what Dave tried before bringing a pair of goggles from the pleasure yacht and hurling them the 'Olympian' distance of 20 feet. Now I won't quibble with Mr Roberts in his definition of the olympic standard for goggle lobbing, but by this measure my 3 yr old will be in the UK team when it becomes a demonstration event in 2012).
    Australia - that's where the slippery toryboy should go - plenty of things that wouldn't scruple to eat him there. He's sufficiently square (even if his PR people tell him about the arctic monkeys) to make a perfect pie.

    Isn't 2012 just going to be about the Brits embarrassed on homeground? *wink* Why they want to host it is well beyond me.

    And whilst we are on polly bashing, good ol' Ton' aint no friend to 'the ladies' either.
    Fuck 'em all.

    ps: my attacker, I guess would have filled a standard bucket, if you could encourage it in there...

    How do you get 37 jellyfish into a bucket?
    Tell them there's a pissed Old Etonian in there.
