Don't do it, Cherrytree you'll only end up with your shoulders in the broccoli.

(That is if you are bending backwards)

TrendyNannie6 Sun 05-Jan-20 21:07:26

I’m confused it doesn’t take much though

You’ve been reading that “sex toy” thread haven’t you Cherrytree . I haven’t laughed so much for a long time . grin

Picturing Mr and Mrs Pnoenix in their bri-nylon nightwear with the sparks flying (quite literally I would imagine) grin

Bugger! My (hopefully) witty reply has now been lost!

“Let’s do it, lets do it tonight” grin

I know’s gone ! You are very witty Mrs P a brilliant response though . grin

gillybob Sun 05-Jan-20 21:13:34

Did anyone happen to get that link address ? wink

phoenix Sun 05-Jan-20 21:13:40

Yay! gillybob You saw it before it was consigned to the pit of hell that is deleted posts!

phoenix Sun 05-Jan-20 21:16:15

Thank you gillybob (bows emoticon, with a hat flourish)

Cherrytree59 Sun 05-Jan-20 21:18:03

Spiralized broccoli of course Phoenix

gillybob Sun 05-Jan-20 21:21:54

Oh yes I saw it Phoenix you gave me my first good laugh for ages !

I think I had a baby doll nightie back in the 70’s that sounded very similar to Mr P’s . hmm

Urmstongran Sun 05-Jan-20 21:25:50

Bugger I missed it!

kittylester Sun 05-Jan-20 21:26:09

Was the 'Womans Weekly' involved?

gillybob Sun 05-Jan-20 21:33:18

I remember reading the problem column in my grandmas Woman’s weekly In the 1970’s (what was the woman called again?) They could be quite racy sometimes and I was only about 10-12 . My grandma used to say I’ve put the WW on your bed cos I know you like to read The Robins . If only she knew . grin

Urmstongran Sun 05-Jan-20 21:33:59

Where is this thread you’re all giggling about? With the deleted post.

I’m missing out here!

gillybob Sun 05-Jan-20 21:37:05

It was deleted Urmstongran . It’s heading was something like “where do you buy your sex toys” (with a very obvious link) and the replies were VERY funny . Sorry you missed it .

I hadn't realised someone had mentioned The Ballad of Barry and Freda before. I'd quoted a verse and link to Victoria Wood first rendition of it.

I laugh as much about Barry's replies to Freda.🤣

phoenix Sun 05-Jan-20 21:39:53

Mr P has asked me to make it very clear that he does not now, or has never in the past, possessed or worn any garment made from bri nylon, and especially not one that might fall into the category of " baby doll".

Also any allegations that he might own, possess or wear any garments even remotely connected to Star Trek (be they pyjamas or "leisure wear") must be regarded as unfounded.

(They are unfounded, I keep threatening to buy him some!grin)

GrannyGravy13 Sun 05-Jan-20 21:40:31

Both of these threads have made me giggle 🤭
