Birds Nest Boys

Smut said: "the Comments aren't working".
I said "Good, I am sick of penis jokes."
Smut said, "You had better go and fix it"
"What" I vouchsafed "is tigris doing aside from lying around eating grapes and sending merc down to the paint shop for a can of tartan paint?"
"I told her to make it polka-dot" said Smut "anyway, you should take the ladder and go and fix the comments"
"Righto" I said seeing the opportunity for an afternoon pretending to look for the comments box.
Smut said "It's on the lamppost outside Mrs Miggins shop near the traffic lights"
"I thought that that was a birds nest" I opined.
"It is that and all" said Smut.
Merc bought the instruction book and called up to me "it's a blue wire with silver striping"
"Righto" I said "Oooow fuck"
"Or maybe not" he said
"I  need to get down now" I said "The mother Sloth is waking up"
merc looked at his watch "Nearly opening time at the Old Entomologist, I'm just saying"
"I need to check their feed" I said.

"it's a blue wire with silver striping"

Wouldn't it be a terrible thing if some of our readers were colour-blind and didn't notice the commenting instructions because of the special color combinations we use, and thought they were commenting when in fact their hard-laboured-over paragraphs were going straight into the bit-bucket.
Not that we would do that.

There is no blue and silver wire boss, but we will diligently look for it if it takes all our days.

mostly yes, occasionally no ... ("if"?)

The blue and silver striped wire appears to be a hot line to heaven as I heard angels sing and hair is growing on the back of my hands.
I was wondering about getting a truck to come and take the bit bucket away. words are overflowing into Riddled creek and the frogs are talking funny

I taped some words from our last Riddled meeting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3O8GFtspk9U&feature=related

This is why we need the polka-dot paint. And the Ishihara vision charts, of course.

There are now 150 million people in Auckland, true.

BALLS.

merc said...

I was never going to get the paint. I never do what I am told, I am told.
I guess I need to get another job now. Damn feeding those tiny humans is a pain.
BTW, Milo sold the sheds to Murray.

Another Kiwi said...

AH I thought he said he was selling the meds.
I think that they were sold out of that paint anyway. Certainly they didn't have any spray cans of it

merc said...

Me and Milo pre-bought The Slug on behalf of Riddled Party Central Inc. John's trying to get a site for it now. Nick said he has one...Murray said he put his bach on it.
Regardless we've already been paid for The Slug, Murray gave us a parliamentary limit free credit card...no investigations guaranteed.
Milo took off with it to Whangamata, something about a marina and a free estuary.

I just have one thing to say.

Okay two.

tigris said...

Is there an Ishihara GIMP mask? You know what I mean.

tigris said...

Also, it's not just lying around, that couch was making a break for it.

fish said...

Sure just a bunch of colorists around here. I don't hear of any tests for monochrome blindness sufferers such as myself. It is impossible for me to distinguish between black and white. I mean sure, I could get a gig as a political pundit, but I want to do something meaningful with my life. You know?

One could untie this Gordian knot... but a lot of people would be upset, what with the summer heat and all.
