That's a bit tame for you Marcus? :laugh:

I think I most admire the retort of a senior US Marine officer during the Korean War and presumably during the Chosin Action when asked if he was "retreating" famously said "hell no, I'm just attacking in a different direction"

Now, for the purists amongst you, I realise that what I have written above may not be a pefect rendition of the actual situation, but it is from my dim and distant memory of Military History, not Googled, Pedia'd or any other similar cop out & charlatan search engine.

As long as the sentiment is pretty accurate please accept it as intended and do not waste either my time or this site's bandwidth replying with a tedious and pedantic correction.

The above statement only applies to probably two or three people who have a habit of doing just that.
 
I think what Groucho said was "I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member"..

He also said "outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read"

He's got a couple of Roo's loose in the top paddock.

It's drier than a dead Dingoes donger.

I hope ya chooks turn into Emus and kick ya dunny door in.

He's like a drover's dog, all ribs and dick.

It's your shout mate.

He couldn't drive a hot nail into warm butter with a sledge hammer.

"Halloween is a liberal holiday because we're teaching our children to beg for something for free. … We're teaching kids to knock on other people's doors and ask for a handout." —Fox News host Sean Hannity (October 31, 2007)
