The Great Reverse Walt - a challenge.

Discussion in 'Diamond Lil's' started by BillyNoMates, Feb 8, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Alright.
    Sites such as Rum Ration, ARRSE etc get the occasional throbber pretending to have stormed the beaches of Normandy,
    killed every enemy soldier in North Korea, or have served 83 years man and boy in the Royal Navy. Well.......what about
    reversing the trend?
    Surely amongst our military brethren on these sites, there are the odd SBS type, or serving/ex chappies that we know
    have actually done what they type about......so "reverse walt" yourself - sign up on the Forum below, and see how long
    it takes for whatever sort of Moderator they have - to hunt you down, and realise that you're not in fact an expert in the
    field of flower arranging, hyacinths or wedding posies.
    A boquet of dead daffodils to the one who manages to stay as a member the longest.

  9. BNM/Now a flower-arranger. Well - I've just popped into their
    forums for a quick skeg...by f**k it's HELL in there. Mind you,
    some of 'em have got fu**ing disgusting Avatars, so maybe
    I can pass myself off as Percy Thrower for a bit as soon as I've
    got some sort of profile together. :twisted:

    Just picked a post at random - and I think cutting off lambs ears
    and having them posted to you is f***ing cruel and has absolutely
    bugger all to do with floristry. I shall complain to the flower-peoples
    moderator in the strongest possible terms.

    I

    #Yeah my lovely lambs ears I ordered from Thrive have arrived and they only took two days. I have a box of the browny ones and a box of the greeny ones but now that I have them I am stuck with what to do with them........ Apart from just stroking them - They are soooooooo soft. Had loads of ideas when I ordered am a bit of a numpty Anyone got any wonderful creative ideas this morning? I think I may have left all my creativness in bed!!!#

    Beware of the flowers?
    ---------------------------

    Hello everyone,
    Seeing as my other half took it upon herself to return to work
    I searched high & low for an appropriate Forum, so that she
    could get back up to speed so to speak. However...in order to
    r-e-a-l-l-y impress her - I am asking if any of you good people
    can put me a list together of the worlds most dangerous flowers.
    I shall then astound her with my depth of knowledge!
    Deadly Nightshade must obviously be one - otherwise why the
    deadly?. For my sins - I construct decking areas and patios. I am
    clueless were flora and fauna are concerned but handy with power
    tools and cement mixers.
    I am looking forward to coming back to this thread and memorising
    a list of the worlds most lethal plant life.

    It’s good to be a Walt Flower arranger….it really, really is.
     
  12. This is fantastic :D :D :D

    Well done Billy
     
  13. Nice one billy, I'll pop over to that thread later and see what I can add,

    If you can go over to the farts thread, I need a bit of help, they may have rumbled me, but I am trying to get the idea going that my college lecturer is grooming me and trying to lure me away for a "romantic" weekend!
     
  14. If the flower pot people can read between the lines, they
    may just glean sufficient information to think that I'm
    about to stop the wifes clock and plant her under a new patio.

    I'll pop back in later and throw some more avcat on the
    compost heap....see what happens. :D
     
  15. I can't find the thread.

    Which forum is it in?
     

  16. Scroll down to "The Lounge" and look for thread entitled "Beware of the flowers"

    (And don't (repeat) don't stitch me up......best fun I've had on www in a long time!)
     
  17. Snowdrop just posted this,

    "Huh ............ guess we will all be watching the papers and news now ........... Florist dies suspected poisnoning .............
    Well ya did get the ingredients handed to you on a plate "




    We have to get them going!
    How do you want to play the next move Billy?
     
  18. I have just thrown in a curve ball and said it would be
    a good idea to use all those poisonous flowers as
    decoration for a *Goths Wedding*. That is if Health
    & Safety would allow it.

    (Chortle Chortle)
     
  19. I have just been bollocked by someone called "PinkLily" (MasterFlorist)
    who was upset at the way I worded the fact that the wife has gone
    back to work. (She hasn't by the way......this is all so surreal)

    Should she have asked permission then sorry but I just feel thats a very sexist way of saying the your partner as gone back to work
