Whimsical holiday threads

Post by jgriffin » Fri May 24, 2019 3:07 pm

I was quite enjoying the Bodies' thread as it had the potential to turn very whimsical or fantastical. I was just thinking that abbreviating it to 'Bods' made it quite early C20, very Wodehouse.
I make an impassioned appeal, at a time when whimsy is needed more than ever (not Lord Peter the Homophone), the one off-topic thread could survive without transport to Welford Road odds and sods forum. We can often banter and those of such a bent could surely make a humorous but rugby related thread on Fanatics Forum?
Leicester Tigers 1995-
Nottingham 1995-2000
Swansea (Whites) 1988-95
A game played on grass in the open air by teams of XV.

What do people do in the close season that they don't during, I often wonder, but that would be straying a way from the rugby theme. Now I would come out as an odd bod!

If Tom Curry gets selected for the World Cup they could slip Ben in the squad on the sly to give Tom a rest and nobody will know!
Extra squad member anyone!

Sounds good, especially the beer.

I spend much of the close season making paranormal investigations. Twelve days coming up in York, at the Golden Fleece Inn. Very active, especially the St. Catherine room. obviously other places as well

Told you I was an odd bod in most peoples eyes. :smt037

I love GhostAdventures, on the Really Channel. I’ve heard there are ghosts on Bosworth Field.

Perhaps just watching Tigers, who are a ghost of their former selves, would suffice? :smt044 :smt044

I am 100% certain there are, although I have never done that site. Where unnatural deaths have occurred you will often find a spirit/spirits.

After the weekend I will PM you at some point, and let you know when it is there.

If I do it on here, I should probably get my knuckles wrapped for deviating from the rugby theme. It's a shame there isn't a general interest theme on the site.

Unless we're planning to hold hands and contact last season's defensive strategy, I suggest this thread might be buried in a non-Rugby forum! :smt059

Hopefully the thread will just be marked O/T and left here.
