    Invisible Jim!

    Those whacky English are at it again.
    This beats the heck out of a new X-Box!

    I want one for Christmas, please Santa....

    My boss often asks my why I have nothing on my desk. (I'm not sure why he seems angry, though.)

    Rather than buy a new nothing, I could sell mine.
    After all, they don't make nothing like they used to!

    And much as I'd love to bask in the reflected glory, the UK is only selling the "thing." A wacky Australian dreamed it up!

    Re: Invisible Jim!

    So now it's cool to have an invisible friend? When I was little my Mum told me that I shouldn't talk to my invisible friend when there were other people around. Eventually my friend was so upset at being neglected that he left and I've not been in touch since.

    This all gives me an idea for a website....

    www.invisible-friends-reunited.com

    Any potential subscribers out there? A fiver to be able to email all your childhood invisible friends.

    Re: Invisible Jim!

    I'd rather have an Air-Guitar which I saw advertised in VIZ!

    ..... "and they're climbing the stairway to heaven"

    Mark.

    p.s. Zoe should there be an umlaut above the e in Zoe?

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">It's a diaeresis - the mark placed over the second of two adjacent vowels to inducate that it is pronounced separately (Collins English Dictionary) - and yes, it is supposed to be there.

    An air guitar would be great! I went to a Status Quo concert recently (you can call me sad if you like, I don't care) and some of the audience had them. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    diaeresis - I get accused of talking that on a regular basis.

    I would have loved to have gone to the "Quo" Rovers Return concert.

    Did you do the Quo "head banging"?

    Some people take this quite seriously:

    It's not an invisible doll, it's an invisible action figure!

    Hey Neill, you around, or someone in the UK, I'd like you to buy me one of these and send it to me. I'll pay.
