    No I think they were expected to only grope their own arses. This was quite a few years ago though

    A couple of my former colleagues went to work for the Asda clothing brand George. At corporate training events staff were encouraged to perform the Asda value pat.

    Theatre

    In the character actors thread I have posted lists of London Evening Standard Theatre award winners but I was trying to find a place for the other theatre creatives (writers and directors). I did think there was a Luvvie thread but apparently not so here we are with a list of the ten longest surviving Playwrights. With a very interesting name to start us off. BEST PLAY (Writer) 1957 Roy Lawler (b. 1921) 1967 Peter Nichols (b.1927) 1972 Tom Stoppard (b.1937) 1974 Alan Ayckborn (b.1939) 1976 Howard Brenton (b.1942) 1980 Ronald Harwood (b.1934) 1983 Athol Fugard (b.1932) 1985 David Hare (b.1947)* 1986 Christopher Hampton (b.1946) * Co-author with Howard Brenton.

    The calendars and diaries will all be printed already so it would be difficult administratively but all bets would be off because we do not know what the mourning arrangements will be

    Unless there is any evidence of ill health I would not go anywhere near Andrews or Cleese. I don't even think Cleese will be the next Python to go

    To me he seems to be a great manager if you want to get promoted from the Championship

    20/20 + 1

    The 20/20 game has been a fascinating source of fun and frustration in equal measure but no the first year will all be dwindling Centarians by the end of 2020. @Sean has given his blessing to the continuation of this game in whatever form and we thank him for his initial great idea. This new version will just last one year and from my point of view is relatively low maintenance. Basically the aim of the game is to pick 20 candidates from the years 1921-1930.You need 2 from each year and you must have one male and one female from each year.Candidates only qualify if they have a national news article about their death in English and or an obituary. The game does not start until 1 January 2020 (UK Time Zone) and no teams can be posted before this time and will continue until the end of the year. As soon as one candidate from anyone`s list dies the pool will be immediately restarted and it is first come first serve. You can even be a bitch and steal someone`s entire list if you wish. It is a competitive game. The overall winner will be the person with most hits in the year. The pool restarts as soon as a link from the the qualifying Obituary is posted verifying age of the deceased (by their own standard).No two players can have duplicate picks and the age given in the article will be accepted as soon as the article is published and pasted to this site.It has to be decisive at the time the news breaks. If the age they give is different to the year of birth you don`t get a hit unless it is amended before another death that meets the criteria of a hit. There is no limit to the number of players and you can enter the round at any point. You may even miss some rounds if they are quick. You do not need an admin to confirm your pick if you have a QO to post your next round team but you may be challenged if it in any way suspect.

    The Probable Demise Of J Prescott (and New Labour)

    Interesting though that he has outlived three of the five people who followed him into his Shadow cabinet roles

    No he remained as Deputy PM until 2007 when Tony Blair stepped down as PM

    The Probable Demise Of J Prescott (and New Labour)

    That was actually an issue. I think Keir Starmer has the same issue with Angela Rayner

    Leicester City legend and charity fund raiser Alan Birchill has been rushed to hospital according to Twitter sourced. He was a summariser for Radio Leicester commentary until a few years ago.

    In light of other news today I would like to remind our younger and non-British members that Bill Rodgers is a British Politician and not a summary of the Clinton Presidency

    Scavenger Hunt Bingo Deadpool IV

    SCAVENGER HUNT BINGO DEADPOOL RULES Each player picks five selections in each of five categories (for categories see below). There are three ways to win 1. You get at least one hit in each of the five categories 2. You get all five hits in one category 3. You get three unique hits across the whole game.  There is no fixed duration you play until there is a winner. In the event of a tie number of uniques will be the next determiner followed by total number of hits across all categories. Obits will not be stringent (more akin to Deathrace requirements). However the Game Controller will be checking that picks meet the category criteria at the start of the game. A unique pick is considered unique in category. For example if two categories were Conservative MPs and Contestants on Strictly Come Dancing/Dancing with the Stars and three players picked Edwina Curry in the first category and the fourth player picked her in the second category. If she eggspired then Player 4 would get a unique bonus. When a winner is declared the selection of the next categories passes to the victor and they get to select the new categories. The winner may opt to pass or play on the organisation of the game. If they pass I will run the game based on their selections or they can take the whole thing. The Categories for the third game are: 1. Any actor (gender neutral term) to appear on screen in any Star Trek franchise (TV or Film) 2. Any player who was part of an MLB World Series Champion team 3. Distinguished Pulitzer Prize Winners (meaning no Staff Winners) 4. Summer Olympics Gold Medal Winners 5. UK Government cabinet ministers Teams must be PM’d to avoid revealing those unique picks. There will be a two week period at the beginning of June after the lists are published for disputes to be settled people whose picks are removed at this point will be allowed replacements but will not be allowed to pick another person's unique pick. Starting Date is 01 June 2021
