My son just wandered in as the newsreader said they are publishing pictures of 'the wanted' in connection with the riots.

He tutted and said 'I thought it was the yoof, glad you came wasn't that bad'

I'm a bit lost on the last sentence, is there a typo or something in it or am I not reading it properly?

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Agent, the band The Wanted sang a song called Glad You Came. I think. I am old grin

If OP isn't going to, do you want me to explain?

shakey1500 Wed 10-Aug-11 22:20:08

If I'm right I shall do a little jig grin

<<firm handshake for Edith for offering to explain>>

Bit old myself, yes The Wanted.
The best thing is my dh didn't get it and then pretended he did when I explained in case he looked out of touch.

I got a text that said 'I bet the Kaiser Chiefs are feeling a bit smug right now' and that took me a few seconds to work out...

I thought of this thread when DS2 told DD to stop singing the Horrible Histories Vikings song. Probably better to swerve Spartan High School Musical too!

Nice to see classic crisis/disaster/tragedy timeline holding true to form. Phase 1 The Event. Phase 2 Black Humour. Phase 3 Conspiracy Theories. Enjoying the jokes. Can't wait for the Conspiracy Theories to start doing the rounds. ;)

i have heard a few Conspiracy Theories.

the only one that really stuck in my mind is that the government set it up so they can have a grant to do improvement work in london ready for the olympics.
