Latest post of the previous page:

Mine is me sitting through my car. I had just cut the floor out and before welding in a new one, I thought I'd have a picture taken! Anyone care to guess what car it is? :laughter: Not much to go on!

My current avatar (borrowed from Cracked.com) is a penguin covered in blood, holding a chainsaw. Thus is my tolerance for bullshit.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

You are brilliant, Alan. I could not believe I had just seen my avatar and it goes all the way back to 2007 !. Of course it looks a bit younger than me.

I don't know why it disappeared in the first place, but it's good to have it back!

I foresee me getting fed up with it again but I shall plod patiently on.
My eyes will stay wonky and although my beret is even smaller because I put it in the standard wash I will hang in there.

‘Happy Jack’ by The Who
According to some sources, Pete Townshend reported the song is about a man who slept on the beach near where Townshend vacationed as a child. Children on the beach would laugh at the man and once buried him in the sand. However, the man never seemed to mind and only smiled in response.
I chose Jack Nicholson smiling to create a slight discord between the avatar and the name. In the course of my life I expect to be vilified but I hope my words will ultimately be accepted. That’s why I’m happy! :smile:
