I have heard tales of debauchery and other shennanigans...

Gasp, Mimi, they'll catch their death. Cavorting in their dissibles. <heaves bussom> < notices lack of bussom, heaves someonelse's> I am having trouble with the word busom. blush spelling block.

Didn't we leave the space clones in the cellar after Madame Hully after worn them out?

I' m sure I hear them feebly knocking into things during the night.

Sybilvimes Wed 03-Jul-13 17:56:38

...after Madame Hully wore them out.

They all looked like Johnny Depp, except for the trial Buck Rogers one. He's probably still quite healthy...

MadameDefarge Wed 03-Jul-13 18:01:07

I have also been told the catacombs have been in use since Brian Blessed Roman times

Miss Sybil! Are you back from the convent at last? How long you sojourned there. You are quite pale and ethereal. Did the Spirit take root in your maidenly heart?

Sybilvimes Wed 03-Jul-13 18:41:02

Indeed Madame Hully. I spent many an hour on my knees praying with the young and handsome resident priest and I began to think of staying forever, but the truth is, I missed you all too much. mad buggers that you are.

Fiderer Wed 03-Jul-13 18:51:56

Sybs! "mod biuggers" did you say? The juniper and mushroom tisanes have affected my hearing somewhat.

What with the Royal Head, the urine fumes and the sewing circle's lace, why I do declare IPOAT is heading into a fine summer.

Sybilvimes Wed 03-Jul-13 18:59:58

Miss Fids! I discovered a new tisane whilst helping with the herbs sister in the convent. I wrote it down most carefully for you, although it mostly included cucumber and mint and gin, lots and lots of gin The Sister particularly recommended it for keeping up ones spirits on a summers eve in the convent gardens.

Let us repair to the distillery herb drying shed, and begin trying to perfect the recipe.

Should this thread not be in chat?
<head tilt>
I see no unreasonableness?

MadameDefarge Wed 03-Jul-13 19:13:00

No olivia, cos if it goes in chat we cannot access it for future reference. We need it archived...and its tradishun.

Sybilvimes Wed 03-Jul-13 19:14:11

Unreasonably, we never get to fill a threat before the 90 days and then we all get lost and lonely in cyber-space.

Plus, traditionally IPOAT has always been in aibu so we can look back and see just how fantastically funny we have been over the years. Come into the distillery herb drying shed and try one of Fid's tisane. You'll forget all about moving us, promise!

MadameDefarge Wed 03-Jul-13 19:17:15

we have lost some splendid narratives in chat...I mourn still the Banditos in the south of France, Vanquishing the Queen of the Huns...

And considering the amount of tosh allowed to stay in AIBU I think it would be unkind to move us....we is MN history. I fink.

MadameDefarge Wed 03-Jul-13 19:18:57

Anyway I think there is lots of unreasonableness here. Gin in a tisane is unreasonable. Keeping the Head of State (quite literally) in cryogenic status is unreasonable. Continuing the cult of the Depp is unreasonable...

Hullygully Wed 03-Jul-13 19:38:01

We live in AIBU so we isn't lost innit?

It would be unreasonable to move us and lose us


Hullygully Wed 03-Jul-13 19:39:15

Shall we perhaps introduce Olivia to King Charles' slightly melted head? It has a most captivating tilt and I am sure will convince her of its righteous abode.

Fiderer Wed 03-Jul-13 20:54:15

Olivia, if you cannot see the unreasonableness in "the Royal Head, the urine fumes and the sewing circle's lace" then I fear for MNHQ.

Hullygully Wed 03-Jul-13 21:00:16

AND it was a perfectly reasonable aibu, some would say I was (the callous batardes who simply don't care about the royal frosty head), some, those invested in his royal frozenness, that I was not.

so ner

<<quietly drags in naked bound and gagged cook from the haha and hides her under stairs behind Madame Hullys spare kirtles>>

<<curtsies to Olivia>>

Hullygully Wed 03-Jul-13 21:07:02

You have a thing about trussing up the cook Miss Honey that verges on the unwholesome

Fiderer Wed 03-Jul-13 21:09:09

Indeed Hully wanting us to be quick before HRH's head melted is reasonableness defined, surely.

Fiderer Wed 03-Jul-13 21:10:53

Miss Honey wanted to make me a Lady on the other thread though so wholesome she shall be to me.

<Lady Fid>

HoneyDragon Wed 03-Jul-13 21:28:18

<<Realises her cunning disguise is once again thwarted>>

Oh forsooth and bollcocks

<<releases cook>>

<<struggles back into corsets>>

Hully dear, I do think that head should be either in gin or the ice house. I think its oozing.

Minimammoth Wed 03-Jul-13 21:42:52

Perhaps we should boil it, in preparation for shrinking like oomeeeebgeebee tribe of Borneo. < passes head to cook in rugby move>
