When you make old man noises every time you get out of a chair, and listen to XFM with your offspring in a desperate attempt to get 'down with the kids'. Oh and while you're listening...

Re: 1966

Happy birthday Leslie buddy!! 1966 was indeed a (ahem!) vintage (in the best way) year. My brother whom I love dearly was born in 1966. 1967 was also a good year, the birth of Radio 1 (OK maybe not)....

Re: Worst /best chat up lines

Re: Who Likes Rotund Fellas?
