And then kick him hard in the shins before booting him into outer space?

Am I, am I ? confused

Please give him an extra kick from me.

HollyBerryBush Fri 08-Feb-13 19:05:59

Whats he done today?

ClippedPhoenix Fri 08-Feb-13 19:06:21

I'd also throw in a bit of water torture for good measure grin

YANBU.

Electrocute his nuts.

I would love to set up a meeting with him, walk solemnly into the room, sit down in a v serious manner, and as soon as he opened his mouth to talk, lean over and flick him right in the middle of his forehead. And continue to do so every time he spoke.

According to dd (2.5) his policies are "not terrible daddy, they're nice". She interrupted our conversation slagging off the Tories in the car today with that gem. Who knew we were harbouring a Tory?

YABU

Give him a kick in the bullocks instead.

Oh no wait - he doesn't have any does he. Could try am punch on the chin but he doesn't have one of those either.

Ok then YANBU.

I'd like to say to him "But you're Scottish, FFS. You were born in the same city as me, a year after me. What in the name of fuck are you thinking, being a Tory?"

GeneHuntsMistress Fri 08-Feb-13 19:21:45

Bullocks?? Bollocks! In every sense.

crazynanna Fri 08-Feb-13 19:22:32

I want to play the 'Sharp Pencil/splayed hand' game with him, and go faster and faster and faster....

No doubt, LifeofPo, but a Scottish person being a Tory is just completely unacceptable. grin

What was that? How many Conservative MPs in Scotland? One. Poor wee David Mundell, and he doesn't even get to be Secretary of State for Scotland! grin

He would like Chinese burns.
Reminiscent of his own childhood.
In fact you'd give him ideas. His next move would be to issue a recommended list of bullying strategies for primary children.

Off tangent here, I do apologise - but where does the phrase Chinese Burn come from, anyone know? My DH is half Chinese and he's told me before in the past he's slighlty suspicious in thinking there was something negative implied when the phrase first came about. And 'Chinese Whispers'.

Seeing the thread title made me remember about it. Sorry to de rail the thread.

If ever waterboarding was justified it is now

Why not google it Frank?

YANBU. I am waiting for him to take his mask off and his real reptilian alien face to be revealed.
