    I’m surprised it took this long to degenerate to this level.

  2. Steve G. says:

    And I didn’t anticipate a page jump. Sorry for throwing you off track (if you weren’t there already).

  3. Nxxx says:

    What is Moltz doing? Page Jumps used to be either every fifty or one hundred posts.

    The whole World has gone to pot.

    Anybody got a light?

  4. Brother Mugga says:

    Hey, don’t think you can get away from me, Steve . . . scampering over here.

    Where’s my lasso?

    And my wipe-clean rubber stetson?

  5. Steve G. says:

    But I wasn’t trying to run away. If I wanted to disappear, I would.

  6. Nxxx says:

    Just in case the Mayan prediction is correct, (how the hell did they know about Del’s critters?) Toodle pip old beans.

  7. Ace Deuce says:

    It’s been nice knowing each of you. Sorry I didn’t get around to paying back the money you lent me. I really intended to…

  8. Steve G. says:

    Umm.. something went wrong… we’re still here. Damn Mayans!

    Happy Boxing Day to our cousins across the pond!

  9. Nxxx says:

    Do we all have to indulge in fisticuffs as it is the Season of Good Will?

  10. Nxxx says:

    Guys, please do not join the petition to deport Piers Morgan for his gun law opinions.

    It was hard getting rid of the moron in the first place.

  11. Ace Deuce says:

    Well, Nxxx, whom will you admit? We have lots of other riffraff to export. I think the UK could benefit from having the entire NRA in residence, as you are woefully short of firearms, based on your murder and mayhem figures.

  12. Steve G. says:

    We now have to suffer by having the Beckhams here. Isn’t that punishment enough?

    Nobody here really knows who Piers Morgan is anyway (the ratings are supposedly terrible). So does it really matter?

  13. Nxxx says:

    We could send you the rest of the Spice Girls.

  14. Ace Deuce says:

    I feel a year jump coming on…

  15. Brother Mugga says:

    Happy New Year, fellow Pilgrims of CARSery.

    May 2013 see the longed for resurrection of Our Lord Moltz.

    In a mankini.


  16. Nxxx says:

    Appy Fingey but is Going over the Fiscal Cliff like a page jump?

  17. Ace Deuce says:

    I met Fiscal Cliff once. I asked him to lend me a fiver, and ironically he had no money.

  18. Brother Mugga says:

    We have a ‘Cliff Richard’ over here.

    Or ‘Cliff Dick’ as he is sometimes known.

    Normally, I would of course now go to ask our yankee chums if their Cliff be dicking them any time soon . . . but I’m far too classy . . . and this is the season of goodwill and all that.

    Nxxx . . . . help . . . me . . .

  19. Steve G. says:

    We’re like lemmings and will fall over a cliff sooner or later. Might as well be a fiscal cliff.

    By the way, Moltz has the last page of the February Macworld to himself. It mentions that he’s the “future proprietor” of this very establishment. I’m trying to Twitter him into a comeback. Not sure if it’ll work.

  20. Nxxx says:

    Do remember you’re a Brit.

    The real name is Sir Harry Webb, just as Elton’s real name is Sir Reg Dwight of Watford. How Sir Wiggo of Kilburn fits into the scheme of things, eludes me.

    Wonder whether we can swing Sir John of Moltz?

  21. Steve G. says:


    I believe that Sir John of the Moltz hath abandoned us.

    His response to my inquiry whether he will once again grace us with his presence is thus:

    “I think that bio needs some updating. Keep up the good work, though!”

    First round is on me.

  22. Brother Mugga says:

    Tsch, I might have to downdate his ‘bio’.


    . . .

    I really need to stop posting in the wee small hours.

  23. Nxxx says:

    When you are as old as I am, every hour is a wee hour.

  24. Steve G. says:

    And your hearing or reading gets shot too. I believe BroMu said “small hours.” Not going further than that.

  25. Brother Mugga says:

    I trust you’re not implying something about Nxxx that only his almost-imperceptibly-indented motorbike saddle is currently privy to, Steve?

  26. Ace Deuce says:

    Lack of something to do has apparently led to Too Much Information here at the Giga-Post. I suggest we do something constructive.

    Either that, or resume hibernation. Tough choice, that.

  27. Steve G. says:

    Tunnel maintenance? Boring to do, but better than the sad direction we’ve been going in and possibly necessary.

  28. Brother Mugga says:

    I had some tunnel maintenance yesterday. Left my rumbling whale song.

    Actually, we may be back to Ace’s information overload.

    I’ll back out gracefully.

    Unlike yesterday.

  29. Ace Deuce says:

    Tunnel maintenance. I don’t venture into the tunnels much lately because I’ve become fond of cellular connections, and the tunnels generally have horrible reception. Someone should convince the major carriers that we tunnel lovers like to use old-fashioned text messaging, so that it would behoove them to put lots of cellular tranceivers at intervals throughout the system. I would be happy to install them, if I were paid handsomely.

  30. Steve G. says:

    How would you like me to dress when I pay you for the installation? The Missus says I clean up nice.

  31. Ace Deuce says:

    “Handsomely” suggests a top hat and tails. No hoodies, unless you are AT&T.

  32. Brother Mugga says:

    Is there any chance of a monocle putting in an appearance, Steve?

  33. Nxxx says:

    There has to be either spats or corespondent shoes.

  34. Steve G. says:

    Like Uncle Pennybags from Monopoly?

  35. Ace Deuce says:

    Just rent a Mr. Peanut costume and you’ll be set.

  36. Nxxx says:

    Did I hear in yesterday’s Presidential Inaugural Address that the honourable, please excuse the UK spelling, John Moltz is to become the Secretary of Mega-Posts?

  37. Steve G. says:

    This _is_ America, so anything is possible. Not sure about how probable it is, but I’m not very good at math.

  38. Ace Deuce says:

    If so, who is the outgoing Secretary? And what does the Department of Mega-Posts do? More to the point, what has the Department of Mega-Posts done for us lately?

  39. Brother Mugga says:

    Irrigation? Sanitation?

    And don’t forget the wine.

  40. Steve G. says:

    Ace, does it matter if the Secretary is extroverted or introverted?

    BroMu, we have brought the whine.

  41. Nxxx says:

    If Moltz is not to become a Secretary of Mega-Posts, our Dave is looking for a pro-Brit guy in the European Union or whatever it is called this second. Might be able to stay in the States as we have an American who stays there advising the BBC on moving most bits from London to Salford, aka Manchester. With what they are paying him, glad I’ve qualified for my free TV Licence.

  42. Steve G. says:

    A question for our cousins across the pond: The Missus is traveling to London at the end of March. Is there anything she should avoid saying to a barkeep to not get punched? (Yes, she’s a bit sassy.)

  43. Nxxx says:

    There are a lot of Aussie barkeeps in The Smoke. Therefore avoid Milton Jones’s joke, “They say criminals always return to the scene of the crime. Is that why there are so many Australians in London?”

  44. Brother Mugga says:

    Probably best to avoid the phrase ‘credit’.

    Particularly when delivered with an enquiring, terminal inflection.

    The use of the phrase ‘terminal’ there was intentional.

    I’d hate for my clumsy punnery to go unappreciated.

  45. Steve G. says:

    The British humor has flummoxed the both of us (and she’s a fan). Guess older child had best learn the route to the American Embassy. Or should I expect to receive a panicked phone call at some off hour?

  46. Nxxx says:

    I have no intention of phoning you Steve and I suspect the same goes for BroMu.

  47. Ace Deuce says:

    I’m willing to make a panicked phone call for a small fee. Just let me know when you want it and what I should be panicked about.

  48. Brother Mugga says:

    I give good phone panic.

    Before departing I would, however, like to commend Steve on a really quite excellent deployment of the term ‘flummoxed’.

  49. Steve G. says:

    Once again, we have more pronoun trouble than Daffy Duck.

    I meant that the Missus would be calling me in a panic.

    She knows well enough which finger-based hand gestures are inappropriate.

    If towards the end of March, you hear of a small American tourist doing something outrageous, odds are high that it’s her.

  50. Brother Mugga says:

    Nxxx knows really, Steve.

    He was just being willfully missunderstandering.

    That is to say, ‘Welsh’.

    I look forward to Mrs G’s digital puppetry.

    We could put her on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square?
