    Anything that Mr Cleese wants is on the house! The lemur and LPV are very excited by his visit, as am I

    Mr. Cleese accepts ILC's kind offer. He sits down with Dedans to enjoy a pint of Stoli Fly Agaric and a plate of ILC's famous eggplant parmigiana.

    A drunk Dane enters the Bistro with a case of Guld Tuborg. The lemur greets her.

    *orders a LaBlatt Blue and tries to talk to Ms. Caroline about her face and body paint* Peter-great to hear about the continuing success of your daughter-will we be seeing her in the Olympics one day? CC-saw a little bit of 60 Minutes's interview with Prime Minister J. Trudeau the other night. Is it just me or does he look like a young Mario Lemieux?

    My neck aches from watching your love of Mme. Kumquat! @Mike Bulgakov needs to share some of the contents of his Fischer racquet bag to help ease my pain.:rolleyes:

    Waves back.

    I must upload pics of my new 6-month old friend from two blocks away who has finally succumbed to my charm.

    Bonjour mon amour, in the City of Lights early this year.....staying at regular jaunt (le Bristol) but haven't yet seen the house cats (Pharoah and Cleopatra) stealing about thus far...

    What's between us and our pants is between 15 and 20 feet of well worn broadloom : )

    If you have a nice winter's coat, and like clean air and a relative lack of tourists, this is a very good time to visit Paris. Have a great time!

    I'm counting the days until my annual jaunt to Alba. Leaving April 14 and returning May 2. I need it badly. the past few months have been unkind. Have found a new source for my newest vice.....Arran Gold. It's what Bailey's wants to be when it grows up! It's made on the isle of Arran. I may import a case or 2 to the Bistro and see how it sells (hopefully not all to me).

    Senti, can't wait to see some pics of your newest best buddy!

    Happy spring everyone....blows kisses to all

    I hope Mr. Kumquat remembered to oil up the ceiling fan motor!

    Party time above our heads!

    Happy birthday, ILC! We were going to send you a birthday cake with Sureshs inside dressed in that Borat one piece mankini, but he ate the cake from the inside out before the elephant tranquilizer dart took effect.

    Why don't you and Mr. @Dedans Penthouse take @sureshs along? You would save a lot on gas, for one. :D

    Just kidding. Enjoy! :)

    You had better be kidding. Their saving on gas will be over-compensated by the huge food bills.

    Wherever they visit, the country/city will implement a new restroom tax.

    @ilovecarlos could float over to Scotland on the Poobenburg, which is a very energy-conscious form of transportation...Poobs simply fills up at an AYCE burrito joint before departure and the necessary fuel for the long flight over the Atlantic is then gradually released from his infernal combustion contraption underneath the slime green tent and baggy shorts. Should the Poobenburg start losing altitude along the way, there will be a few Awesome Blossoms stored away as a contingency.

    Our lovely passenger will be safe as long as she keeps her TSV-approved gas mask handy.:eek:

    Yes, but to reach Scotland crossing the Atlantic on this "energy-conscious form of transportation" could take weeks if not months. What if the Poobenburg loses altitude over the pond, as you say ? How will he refuel ?

    I detailed the emergency fuel reserves...several Awesome Blossoms will be stowed away for that contingency!:eek:

    Don't underestimate the top speed of the Poobenburg...the gas from an AYCE raid, while dangerous to breathe, is highly energetic and lighter than air so it helps streamline the craft for that long journey.:eek:

    That's fine and dandy as long as ILV or Dedans don't light a match. If they do, "Oh, the huge manatee!"

    Definitely a no-smoking flight!

    Who is ILV? Has our barmaid decided to play the "home team" and suddenly loves Venus or Victoria???:eek:

    Glad of this! Had it been Victoria joining her for rotations on the ceiling fan it would have gotten way too noisy for conversation at the bar, although a ménage a trois with Mr. & Mrs. Kumquat might make conversation stop!:eek:

    Isn't Poobs banned from The Bistro due to his nasty habit of shuffling off without paying tabs or tipping???:eek:

    There'd be no getting off Scot-free in Scotland for Poob the rube. .

    Poobs is in the habit of only giving tips to impressionable nubile Div3 females. He also doesn't give them just the tip, but the whole
    thing. IYKWIM. :eek:

    He never gave the whole thing, even when giving them the hole thing...hence the 6-0 3-0 score line!:eek:

    One and a half bagels from the Poobster is really a baker's dozen though to be fair. :D

    Let's see...a baker's dozen is 13; sureshs gives 1.5 bagels; that means he has 8.67 of his "love" to give. No wonder he doesn't FINNISH the second bagel...most girls are not impress with just 6.5 of "love"!:eek:

    It is funny how often Danes remind people to stay calm. I think this comes from early parenting, and I enjoy the dark, steady Danish humor that comes with the flow of beers that matches the rate of Swedes passing out in Danish bars.

    The lemur and LPV still await ILC's return from Scotland with a stash of single malts. In the meantime, the lemur places a Bistro order.

    The horses are tired, as the San Diego Bageler is passed-out in the carriage. The carriers are vague when Mr. Lemurov asks about the fruit and beer being delivered.

    If those massive steeds can't pull the Poobs, I would be overmatched on my pedicab and would need lots of bananas before and even more Carlsbergs afterwards.

    Hello Bistro Peeps! Happy Fourth of July and a great big happy birthday to my most Beloved, Mr Dedans Penthouse. We are celebrating quietly this year. You all know of our fondness for submarine races and canoodling? well, that's where we are and that's what we're doing. Back later!

    I guess Cibulková was tired today after last night's pre-marriage bacchanal of fun, where she shook her booty all night with Dedans and company.

    Dominika fails the first clause of the age of legal drinking statutes...she is not tall enough to reach the Bistro bar.

    One advantage for her suffering through being altitudinally challenged though...If she had a flat head, I could rest my drink there while she gave her oral dissertation on the merits of Cranial Satisfaction.:eek:
