"Better an empty house...

than an unwelcome guest" would be the invariable comment made by an extremely dull former acquaintance of mine from Bristol after he had belched prodigiously, having just downed a pint of Smiles Best.

Some unwelcome guests arrived at Casa Combo last weekend. A group of motorbiking lawyers who booked to stop over on a 'run' for an extended aperitivo, that is a table full of food and drink.
They were coarse, foul-mouthed, offensive, bigoted, arrogant, ignorant, boorish, objectionable drunks. I liked them enormously of course.

The t-shirt speaks volumes. And I thought us English had a virtual monopoly on uncivilised behaviour.

Is the sequence correct?

Quite Affer, No chance after all that. Polite excuse and an 'I'll be okay in the morning'.

I bet you said "Look, if you don't moderate your behaviour I'll be forced to sue the arses off you. Oh. Actually, forget I just said that. Get stuck in, anything you like, but would you mind leaving my Labrador alone". Is that how it was Ron?

What a vile garment. Such a thing would be unknown in the glorious Thames Valley. Yesterday in Marlow I saw a charming slogan across some unremarkable T-shirted breasts. It said "I Can't; I'm Mormon". That's exactly the sort of sentiment I like to see in these recessionary times.

I like the way the 'artist' has put a tutu on the girl to make it ABSOLUTELY CLEAR that there was none of THAT sort of thing going on.

I presume the party left you with a staggering bill, inclusive of expenses, lunch, accomodation etc.

ChrisP - methinks the artist does overplay the ID (bow in hair and some dangly down bits in the front as well as the skirt) - quite obviously a bit of lawyer cross-dressing going on there.
