    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    I guess the English flag would've taken a large share.

    Good to see your not a flam-baiter.

    I guess this proves your no better, despite what you might think.

    And in international news, Britain faces heavy international pressure after the sudden dissapearance of many flags from Embassy buildings....

    Good stuff Neil!

    Good try, but it doesn't bother me. I'd chuck a couple on the fire if it was cold.

    I went to visit my sister at the weekend for a rather splendid alfresco tiffin

    (translation: Popped over to see Sheila for a Barbie, Fosters and Chunder)

    and was dismayed to see that she had indeed decorated the exterior of the house with a dozen Crosses of St George.

    I could understand it if they referred to Charlie George, but no - George as in 'George and the Dragon' ( not even the version starring Sid James and Peggy Mount)

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
