Rien ,j'vois pas !!Est-ce que ça t'gène pour boire ? Et en vélo ça freine ? Monsieur Spock lui avait de drôles d'oreilles !!

Ah, Crabtree, tu ne serais pas un Trekkie? Moi j'aimais bien la premiere serie, avant qu'ils essayaient d'etre croyable, avec le medecin "Bones" et le chief engineer ecossais. Comment dit-on en francais "Beam me up, Scottie" ?

"Oh, grand-mère! Tu en as de grandes oreilles!" s'écria le Petit Chaperon Rouge.
"C'est pour mieux t'entendre, mon enfant!" dit le loup en gloussant.

Come on, Che, will you please get your comments to open in another window so that your readers may look at your post while thinking of a comment. Miss Rainbow could do with the same feature. (Blogger settings.)

On ne peut que remarquer les feuilles de chou mais mon regard est plutôt capté par le sien, qui est si expressif. On dirait un Huron scalpé, et toutes ces stries me font penser à une planche d'anatomie des muscles du visage.

Je ne connaissais pas le mot biro, j'avoue que c'est bien plus chic qu'un bic.

"Rayonnez-moi vers le haut, Scottie" according to Babelfish.

Your wish is my command, Cream, however it doesn't seem to be working for some reason.

László Bíró, September 29, 1899 – November 24, 1985, inventor of the ballpoint pen.

Is that Pierluigi Collina? :-)

Daphne Wayne-Bough, said...

Yes it is working. I've changed mine too, so that everyone can continue to admire my wall wot I built myself, with no help from ANYONE. (Pointed look in Che's direction).

Baron Bic also had a throwaway ballpoint named after him. I don't know which one came first. You can keep your Mont Blancs, nothing beats a Bic Cristal. Blue, pref.

Che said...

It's not Pierluigi Collina, but having GIS'ed him, he's a surefire candidate for my next trick with a bic.

"In 1950 Marcel Bich bought from Bíro the patent for the pen, which soon became the main product of his Bic company."

So now you know how Bich could afford that mansion of his,
half-way down the Champs-Elysees.

And anyway - everyone knows that the Cristal is shite compared to the Classic Black Bic retractable - one of the classic designs of the 20th century, and still the best pen ever made.

(Cristals dry up, and have less shelf-life, than Retractables. Also Retractables have unctious super-black ink. Cristals have pissy blue-ish "black" ink.)

I'm an expert, don't argue with me.
