Speak roughly to your little boy.

I would like to make it abundantly clear that I am contrite and very sorry.
My father-in-law, a devout Hindu, offers the imprecation "Sita Ram" when he sneezes.
I admit there is nothing clever or even mildly amusing about my saying "Sonny Cher" when I sneeze.
I am not sure at this stage which of world's religions I have most offended, and am therefore not totally clear as to which hell I will be consigned to. I don't really mind, as long as they like a good laugh.

I can help you vicus :)

Dave said...

I don't believe in hell. Seriously.

Rog said...

Bless you child

Tim Footman said...

I just apologise for covering my interlocutor with green snot, and carry on.

Dave said...

Many happy returns, by the way.

I, Like The View said...

I read an interesting article about sneezing, in New Scientist recently (I put the comma in, so as you know the article wasn't about sneezing into a weekly scientific magazine)

apparently as babies we sneeze thru our noses - which is the purpose of sneezing, to clean out our nasal passages

and yet as adults we sneeze mainly thru our mouths, which defeats the point of sneezing altogether (but obviously not in Mr Footman's case)

I hope this helps


(if it's your birthday, where's my slice of cake?)

Richard said...

Wherever it is we're not going, I won't see you there.

Many Happy Returns.

MJ said...

Did someone mention cake?

*resists urge to post NSFW link*

KAZ said...

I sneeze so often I don't have time to speak in between.
MJ - You didn't resist the urge at my place.

MJ said...

Kaz: Vicus has threatened to use his punishment rod on me should I post naughty links.

zIggI said...

do you have a cold and a birthday then?

Vicus Scurra said...

Pamela. Thank you, I will be over there shortly.
Dave. Do you believe in it frivolously then? I know that you have retired, but it is not, I would have thought, a very sound position for someone associated with the church.
Rog. And you too.
Tim. Carry on what? Sneezing? This really won't do.
Dave. Thank you. What are returns? To where am I returning?
ILTV. Of course it helps. And help yourself to the cake. I'm not having any, due to being still on my wheat-free regime, so there is plenty for you. Aisle 6 at the Whole Food Market in Kensington.
Richard. I hope that others appreciate your wisdom as much as I do.
MJ. Yes, as you would know if you had read the comments. Dull ratbag.
Kaz. Please wipe your computer screen forthwith.
MJ. Liar.
Ziggi. No.
