Name change
« on: December 18, 2013, 08:19:36 PM »
Greetings,

In the run up to the Christmas festivities I would like it know that I have changed my name from Sir John, Earl of Bridgeport and Sudspumpwater to just plain Mohammad Bridgeport.

This change of faith is only for the festive season so I don't have to send any cards or presents out.

Normal service will resume in the new year.

Will this include screeching and wailing from the minorets at Bridgeport towers.


If it does, use coolant and take deeper cuts.....

And if you are thinking of laying down on the floor to face Mecca I would make sure you remember to sweep up the swarf first, otherwise that might cause a bit of  :bugeye: .

My old Mum used to work for a coach company and many a time asked the direction to Mecca, so much prayer directed at the local Bingo hall.

Well……………….. since you have a new realized faith, it’s safe to assume you will be wallowing in 69 vizy-girlies while lobbing down oodles of goat libertine in ya tent pitched on the common,

Well must admit i was a wee bit excited about the 69 virgins bit until some spoilsport told me that Susan Boyle was one of them, what rather got thing crashing to the ground.

Oh well another flat battery in the car park of life................

 :bugeye: I can only guess they were 69 Model engineers who spent too long in their workshop and forgot never discovered that there are other things that you can be passionionate about in life and still spend the majority of your time in the workshop, maybe there is still hope :coffee:

Virgins ??? Who wants freakin' Virgins ????
OK ...
Virgins I have 'had' that were more damn trouble than they were worth:  :bang:
1971 Sunbeam Rapier
1971 Cheryl S.
1972 Ford Cortina 1600E
1975 Hillman Avenger
1976 Suzanne L.
1972 Triumph 750 Bonneville
1979 BMW 528i


And  some others I no longer remember much about ... on the grounds that wandering through life awash with Worthington 'E' was not conducive to knowing just what the hell you were doing. Or who you were doing it with for that matter ...  :scratch:

Oh well! Days long gone ...  :(

A wise man once told me: "Son, if it's got tits or tyres, it's bound to cause you trouble".  Wish I has listened to him.
