This Emperor is from thew Mersey estuary. Over the water from the fabled Beatlesland.... Far enough away from strawberry fields to not be bothered by hordes of aimless tourists suckered into spending their life savings to visit a mundane urban street with an equally mundane roundabout and fire station..... :rolleyes:

Yoko is welcome to the John Lennon empire..... bless her little cotton socks... :D

I'm from Sunny Stafford in the heart of the Midlands, please God I hope I don't have Brummy accent.

I went to a school in Burton on Trent and the accent round there was more like a soft Mancunian than Brummie. Flat and strangled vowel sounds are nothing to be ashamed of. Just be thankful you don't have to live in the South where people actually pronounce plastic as plarstic! Now that is shameful....! :)

I saw Liverpool FC beat West Ham United 2-1 live on TV 2 days ago. Emperor JARGO, you living somewhere around Liverpool? You a soccer fan too?? They are here in Singapore recently and bt our National League selection 2-0. When Man Utd was here, we were thrashed 8-1 :(

Sorry if I'm out of the topic :p

I guess I'm the ONLY Singaporean here. I'm so lonely.....and cold :(

humsup, no I'm not a soccer fan but my sister is a massive Tranmere rovers fan. She just had me update her website while she was away on holiday. which was frightening. Trying to post a match report about something you know nothing about is - interesting to say the least! :p

GNT, yeah, we get stuff from Hasbro Germany and some clearance oufit who ship to the bigger stores who currently stock stuff cheap. I've not had any problems finding stuff since I learned to be a little cunning and patient. If I wait long enough I always find what i'm looking for at a nice price. Just picked up the entire Sabe wave which isn't due for release until next month. YUMMY! :D

Hey Jargo, what wrong with the south of england????

We don't all have problems pronouncing plastic and stuff.... some of us are just too busy chewing on straw and mis-directing tourists. :)

Jargo

I have nothing further to say on this matter. Please direct your attention elsewhere..... Or i shall be forced to stare rudely at you.

keep going Jargo........ you haven't offended me yet.

I'm sure there must me a Nigel out there somewhere just as you describe.......... no wait, I know a Nigel just like that (sadly I actually do).... just an acquaintance, though, not like he's a friend or anything.... :)

Of course you could try the welsh (always a good target)...

Did someone mention scousers.........??? (another good target) :) :) :) :) :) :p

I didn't know so many people here lived at the University of Kentucky. Did you realize this entire thread existed in a pre-9/11 world? Until right now. Just an observation.
