This is a question Question of the Week suggestions

Each week we ask a question. The idea is to generate material that's:

* interesting to read, i.e. we won't get bored of reading the answers after about 10 of them
* not been asked on this site before
* fun to answer

What would you like to ask? (We've left this question open - so feel free to drop in ideas anytime.)

Unsuitable for the job
The guy who cleans my parents windows is scared of heights and refuses to climb ladders, so has to have an assistant to do upstairs windows.

Who do you know who is just completely unsuited to the job they do?

Other than the current / previous PM.

Greatest Deception
Years ago I 'Shopped a copy of an MOT certificate which I presented as legit to the local constabulary after being stopped. Despite feeling very guilty, I got away with it.

What's your greatest moment of successful deception?

(Any story involving "I do" doesn't count.)

The great B3ta collective horror story
every one gets to add a a few lines or paragraphs to the story as and when they are sober or not stoned. take it in any direction and as bloody gory or psychological as befits the story line with twist turns and surprises and bodys and severd limbs and maybe a bus that runs on time or what ever.

I may even have a go at some proper cuntuation

Absolutely bloody amazing
A friend and I build a half pipe using scavenged wood for the frame, then saved up for the ply to cover it. It had a tombstone, and proper coping that we'd nicked from beside the old railway track.

He learnt to get air off it and I learnt to blunt slide.

For that summer we were the coolest kids in the village.

When Mrs Vagabond and I got married in Vegas this year, my mate Rob came without his family, and as such, whenever we talk about the event with friends now, it's always Rob that we spend the most time talking about, and how ace he is.

What have you done that made you (wo)man of the match?

Little Horrors
Kids get up to all kinds of shit. We've all been a kid at some point - tell us tales of the 'mischief' (READ: horrendously unacceptable behaviour) you got up to when you could still get away with it. Or, if you've popped out a few sprogs of your own, tell us stories that'll make the rest of us book an immediate appointment for a vasectomy.

The comeback kid
After being needled by my ex's new boyfriend about how great it was to be with her, he said "I'm off to bed with her now." I snapped and replied, "Just remember, wherever you go, I've already been."

Detail your top comebacks. Bonus points for crudeness.

Things I wish I'd never heard...
On the TV this morning there was a discussion about Brodie Clark wherein Theresa May was decribed as having "dumped on him from a height".

Now if there is one mental image I do not need over my bran flakes* it is that of our kitten-heeled home secretary squatting atop a pole, cleft asunder, defacating abundantly into the open mouth of the recently deposed former head of the UK border control force.


What do you wish you had never heard, or seen ?

what the best and worst QoTW sugestion you have ever made?
Tell us if it was wild , wacky or sad and grey and didnt make you laugh but saved you time or money.
Maybe it was the one about the time on the beach when the old ladys mankini fell down and you rushed over to cover her up, so your mates wouldnt be sick?
or the time you saved 50 p on a multypack of tenalady by useing the coupon in titbits?
Alternativly why not post a picture of your self naked taking dump on a wasp nest full of nasty little irate stingamajigs?


possibly

Things I shouldn't have done.
I am constantly amazed at the things that I have been allowed to do in my life. Probably the most inadvisable being to allow me, after throwing myself out of an aeroplane, to repack a parachute myself. This would have been fine had (a) I been the one jumping again; and (b) had not been an incredibly irresponsible 16 year old. I didn’t hear of any fatalities after that one, but it was probably a close-run thing.

The moment which always makes you laugh, despite any bad mood you're in.
I was on the end of a pub bench in a noisy beer garden with two others. Needing to fart, I used the ambience to hide the noise. The next thing I knew, the lad on the other end leant forward and asked "Was that you making the bench vibrate?" and saw the lad in the middle in tears of laughter. Busted.

Every time I think of this, no matter what kind of foul mood I'm in, I always laugh. Share your moments of guaranteed mirth.


P.S. Flatulence is funny.

"It was this big. I had to use the Honda Accord and a tow-rope to land the fucker!"
Post an anecdote about anything. Only one rule though, you must embellish and exaggerate it to the point of ridicule.

and keep it entertaining. So two rules then.

Victory over Petty Government Oppression ...
On Sunday I cam out of Budgens to see a Parking Nazi walking away from my car having left a ticket. I rushed over to the Pay & Display and bought a ticket ... rang up the council and claimed to have been trying to get change while Adolf's Chum had been ticketing me.

And they let me off - result!
