Mr. Grumpy

Post by HEPZIBAH » Fri Oct 28, 2016 4:08 pm

If you're grumpy and you know it make it known
If you're grumpy and you know it make it known
If you're grumpy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're grumpy and you know it known

If you're grumpy and you know it stamp your feet
If you're grumpy and you know it stamp your feet
If you're grumpy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're grumpy and you know it stamp your feet

If you're grumpy and you know it bang your drum
If you're grumpy and you know it bang your drum
If you're grumpy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're grumpy and you know it bang your drum

If you're grumpy and you know it write on-line
If you're grumpy and you know it write on-line
If you're grumpy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're grumpy and you know it write on-line

If you're grumpy and you know it bore the world
If you're grumpy and you know it bore the world
If you're grumpy and you know it and you really want to show it
If you're grumpy and you know it bore the world

BUT -
Please not every day, in the same old way
Why not...
Have your say, in a brighter way
Share the good, feel the love
Understand the trends
Even make new friends
Turn your life around
Make the smiles abound
And sing the song
All day long...

If you're happy and you know it clap your hands....

I know lots of grumpy people....'their all heading for an early grave. Why ?
Because they are to f**kin stupid to have learnt the simple things of life...f*ckem let the 'already dead bury the dead....

I remember once, a crackhead lying comatose in Baker Street outside my office, a copper said 'can't you help ?
I said "yes but f*ck him, it's not my problem. And stepped over him. (One has to be cruel to be kind) hamlet act 3.

If you want to save the World become a saviour... I'm not that man!... 8)

If you ride a motorcycle stamp your feet,
and you try to stop the carnage in the street.
But their heads are unprotected from the ‘humps’ that they erected,
If you ride a motorcycle stamp your feet.

If you like to wear a skirt stamp your feet,
And a haggis is your favourite food to eat.
But the neighbours run away every time you start to play,
If you like to wear a skirt stamp your feet.

If you need to get a visa stamp your feet.
For without one you could be on the street
If that little stamp is lacking and they decide to send you packing,
Then Oz would make a really nice retreat.

I like Cat Stevens, I can relate to many things..... Also like Jealousy too, again can relate to many things, but stupid made up songs using the musical themes is a bit stupid. Remember Diana Ross and a Vanilla Fudge piece of music? Or maybe an old Sx Pistols album? No! Oh we'll Never Mind. If I remember correctly Gerry Rafferty once played with Vinegar Joe, with Elkie Brooke's. It seems some moderators can get away with anything be it suggestive or not, a bit of a two sided coin. Maybe they were Garry Glitter fans and loved his music. People must realize there are certain things that make people grumpy, some people do something about it, others just sit back all day thinking of how they can appeal to others by making up things to keep people in "Their Gang" :lol: They live a sad life, maybe thoughts to the future will give them some inspiration.

As the forum's self-proclaimed wind-up merchant I'd have thought you'd be more thick-skinned.

Not a good idea to dish it out if you can't take it.

MT, you really don’t get it do you? Most members could not care less about where you are or what you are doing, we only comment when YOU bring it to our attention. You hate all things Egyptian and yet constantly bemoan the state of everything in the country, you say you are doing something about it and everyone else ignores it, but all you do is to pick at it like an old scab moaning about the same things over and over and over, if you really had moved on with your life we would hear no more of your moaning. You are a self confessed schemer, constantly sowing your little seeds in the hope of getting a response from us, but it is we that see through your silly games and either choose to ignore them or better still to make fun of them.

The whole trouble is, it seems there are so few or us who do actually ignore him. The rest of you cannot help yourselves and rise to the bait every blessed time. The taunting and complaints about his posts are just as boring. They don't become any of you.

You wouldn't take my advice about ST for ages and look what happened, until you finally saw sense.

In the words of a famous sports merchandiser, JUST DO IT!

I'm happy to respond to MT's posts....fills in a few moments of boredom.

You think ignoring him will stop the daily diatribe against Egypt/Luxor? I doubt it :lol:

It never stopped ST incidentally.....she could bore the pants off a brick wall. She didn't heed a response.

She was finally kicked out for repeated abusive posts. MT's posts merely insult one's intelligence....and he's not alone in that respect :urm:

Lets be honest here my p*ss taking is normally subtle sometimes to subtle for some to comprehend.
But, I bumped into MT the other week in Aldi's in Adelaide, Now people know my p*ss taking is fun and not harmful.

Mind you I'm pretty good at winding-up people, even to the point of unrestrained violence toward my person.
People with the abilities of detection often call me 'a wind-up merchant, 'really ?.... 8)

As Newcastle says, ST's absence is entirely due to her own actions and has nothing to do with members ignoring her.

You might be a p..s taker Who but your posts are usually amusing, interesting and never repetitive. Makes a difference.

I know full well why ST was deservedly banned, and I know ignoring her and MT doesn't stop them (I never actually said it would, did I?), but if you simply scroll past such posts, thereby resisting the temptation to respond/bait, life becomes a whole lot more pleasant and a hell of a lot less boring. Try it, it's really easy, though I know some find that level of humour stimulating.

Of course you (anyone) can also scroll past mine too if they get up your collective noses, for all I care, that's your right; there's no obligation to read everything posted.

In the beginning there was this guy and doll that succumbed to temptation, it sort of roller-costed from there, now its deeply rooted within each and every one of us. If it were possible to trace back the DNA to those two, it could very well turn out to be the starting seeds of ST and MT. :lol:
