    Saddam Hussein

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/4090435.stm There are claims that Saddam is refusing his food along with some of his buddies. Poor nutrition is as we know not conducive to longevity. He is eating "snacks" so it doesn't count as a hunger strike. I wonder if the US would prefer him to live or die. Some of them will no doubt be frustrated that he's unlikely to get the death penalty whilst American citizens can get it simply for minor traffic offences. I wonder if he is afraid of poisoning?

    Claire may very well get her wings in 2005. Will she go with the flow?

    Viktor Yushchenko

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,3-1393172,00.html Looks like it was poison. No evidence of it having been a potentially lethal dose, but I suppose whoever it was may try again, so an early departure may be on the cards for Viktor. A highly speculative possible makeweight then for next year if numbers are short.

    Hamed Karzai

    If I flung a potato at Karzai and he were to catch it and stick it down his underpants, that could mean the beginning of a new dick-tatership in Afghanistan.

    Hamed Karzai

    I'm surprised nobody had a go at Rummy and Cheney while they were there. I know I would like as not have lobbed a rotten cabbage or two their way if I had been in Afghanistan yesterday. Which I wasn't.

    Charlie Drake.

    Is there such a thing as an actors old people's home? Live and learn. I wonder if he has any famous co-inmates in an advanced state of agedness we should know about?

    No, you are right. You both look like the leader of a dubious religious cult.

    Prince Bernhard Of The Netherlands

    In order to be canaonised, you have to have performed at least 3 provable miracles. (Exception Mother Teresa who will probably be excused this tedious requirement) I wonder how many miracles Bernhard performed in his long lifetime? Transforming himself from an SS officer into an Allied pilot might count as one.

    Cyril Fletcher of the wicker chair and the palm tree on That's Life in the 70's and 80's. He will be 92 next year and could reasonably be expected not to be able to keep up his unctuous double-entendres for much longer.

    Ronald Reagan

    It means (more or less) "Go with God- away! I can do without you!" Probably still upset about "Bomber" Harris. Some Germans took offence that Her Majesty didn't apologise for him on a recent visit to Germany.

    No question. She's a dead cert!

    Ian Paisley could be worth serious consideration. Rumour has it he has prostate cancer. That didn't do Frank Zappa any good.

    Viktor Yushchenko

    Some experts think it is deliberate dioxin poisoning. Or a stress-related disorder. Check out the before and after pics on this page: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4041321.stm

    He was always a bit of a cantankerous old sod. In spite of his cheery affectation for the cameras. Prime candidate for a premature demise. I wonder if all that healthy red wine could have a life-prolonging effect though?

    I found a translation back into english of the German version of the lumberjack song. Really rather senseless if you ask me. I'm a lumberjack and I feel strong. I sleep all night and chop all day I fell trees, I skip and jump I go the the WC On Wednesdays I go shopping And have cookies and coffee I'm a lumberjack and I feel strong I sleep all night and chop all day I fell trees, I eat my bread Put flowers in a vase I slip into women's clothing And lounge around in bars I'm a lumberjack and I feel strong I sleep all night and chop all day I fell trees, wear high heeled shoes Stockings and a bra I'd like to be a little girl Just like my uncle Walter and here's Google's automatic translation which has a better entertainment value by far: The Lumberjack song How are the surviving Pythons keeping? Any of them likely to kick it? Greetings from Germany,

    No, it isn't that either.
  20. Just a short word as a new list member to say how honoured I feel to belong to such a fine and respected community. This is how I imagine it must feel to be in the US government.
