    I thought the post I made last week took the biscuit about the guy I work with who goes abroad and plays soldiers in battle re-enactments....... but I've got another corker!



    I was just asking another guy a quite innocent question on how he manages to keep the cableing nice and tidy at the back of his TV set. He said it wasn't a problem - only had aerial and video. (Yes he means a VHS recorder). After I had a joke about that, he asked how old do I think his TV set was........ So I says 20 years..... " no try again" - OK 25 years...... "no try again".......

    He now tells me his set was made in 1966....... Someone would have seen England lift the World Cup on this set!!!!


    LOL...... I have warned him I'm posting this.... so dont be too horrible! ;-)

    Want me to call you an ambulance?

    Some people don't even have a telly!!:w00t:

    I think your work-mate is doing well to satisfy his viewing needs with that equipment. Is the video-machine a beta-max?

    When I worked in an office a few years ago, there was a guy with dark hair in a side parting going from left to right.

    One Monday, he came in with the side parting on the other side. Going from RIGHT TO LEFT.

    It was crazy, especially on a Monday morning.

    I'll have to see if I've got any photos of it. Anyone else got any crazy work-related stories?

    Thats very true. My sister doesn't have a job - and if she had her way, wouldn't have a TV set in her 6 bed house in Newmarket - despite being a mulit-millionaire.

    I've shown the guy this thread.... He LOL'd.

    I suggested he took a pic as requested... but said he only had a film camera. (He lied about that bit though!)

    So with luck, the pic will be posted.......

    You know, it's times like this that I think it's sad that Michael Parkinson retired.

    You have your Ustinovs and your Stephen Frys, but I mean this stuff is real gold.

    Maybe he could take it on the road, do the Fringe and maybe even conquer America like a modern day Wilde.

    I have nothing to declare, but my anecdotes about 1960s tvs.

    Ironically, very little effort is needed. So little in fact, there was no effort at all.

    BRB posting hottest deal and thread of the day.

    Yes, that's a good point - you can't hardly move big old telly's without injuring ( pause a moment for poor robjd) yourself.
    We still have a VCR as well ( although not from the 60's). Hubby was transferring some old and treasured videos to DVD last night. It seem we have to get a new HD-DVD machine that can do digital inputs from everywhere when we 'go digital', communicate better and goodness knows what else.

    Your work-mate's telly isn't going to be any use soon, guv - you'll have to break the news.:w00t:
