Where am I now?
I thought I would use a couple of old pictures to make my 8,000th post on here .
These (which I have recently unearthed) were taken during my professional heydays in the 80's (that's the 1980's...). They were taken during the shooting of a tv commercial for CocaCola.
Brits of a certain age should recognise the puppeteers as the Spitting Image team. See if you can spot Chris 'Arnold Rimmer' Barry.

(Footnote: I got the job because I knew the Spits team - we used to all go to the same parties and get drunk together. Definitely a case of 'it's not what you know but whom...' :lol: )

First, congrats on the 8,000 - I don't know what this place would be like without you.

Second, nice shot! You really got around, didn't ya! It's amazing who you meet if you're willing to get drunk!

Third, I'm glad you specified the 1980's... with the way you look, it's hard to tell... ;) love ya... mean it!

t's the time of year, now that spring is in the air
When those two wet gits, with their girly curly hair
Make another song, for marronic holidays
that nausiate-ate-ates in a million different ways
From the shores of Spain, to the coast of southern France
No matter where you hide, you just can't escape this dance

Hold a chicken in the air, stick a deck-chair up your nose
Buy a Jumbo-Jet, and then bury all your clothes
Paint your left knee green, then extract your wisdom teeth
Form a string quartet, and pretend your name is Keith.

Skin yourself alive, learn to speak araphahoe
Climb inside a dog, and behead an Eskimo
Eat a Renault 4, wear salami in your ears
Cassarole your gran, dis-embowel yourself with spears

The disco is migrating, the sound is loud and grating
It's truly nausiating - let's do the dance again..

Hold a chicken in the air, stick a deck-chair up your nose
Buy a Jumbo-Jet, and then bury all your clothes
Yes you'll hear this song, in the holiday discos
And there's no escape, in the clubs or in the bars
You would hear this song, if you holidayed in Mars

Skin yourself alive, learn to speak araphahoe
Climb inside a dog, and behead an Eskimo
Now you've heard it once, your brain will spring a leak
And though you hate this song you'll be humming it for weeks

Hold a chicken in the air, stick a deck-chair up your nose
Buy a Jumbo-Jet, and then bury all your clothes
la la la la la la la....

Bet they were an dangerous lot to go drinking with!! :lol: Congrats :hertz: on the 8K!!
