Does Spook qualify for this award? Certainly best dummy spit if not.

Dummy Spit? That might dovetail with the most missed poster award. Unless I am mistaken - and he is welcome to correct me if I have the facts wrong - but I understand that fos is no longer in the building on account of ... provincialism.

Is "The Robbie" for demanding comitment and mongrel? If so, add Lee Grant and Lindommer
or
for understanding the game and knowing how to build a strategy? If so, add Lee Grant and Lindommer
or
for knowing that the whole Wallaby setup needs a complete revamp? In which case add all of us
or
for very muddy statements? In which case you must delete myself

You've started this race a couple of lengths back but I must say that you're using the whip nicely.

Hands and heels, mate, hands and heels. There may be a long way to go.

The irony in that still has me chuckling  :lmao:

PS: Scarfie, was your new Pablo Picasso avatar and the timing of the avatar award purely coincidental?

I joined Facebook for 2 days a while back and drew this in Windows Paint to be my picture. I'm trying to get some mileage out of it.

It's a good likeness, is it not?

Damn you Gags! I went and had a look and bloody Facebook automatically joined me up again. Will I never escape?

Couple of heavy-hitters in your friend list, though. What are Bam and Tatafu up to these days?

technology at work with your best interests in mind!

gags i also saw your famous acquaintances and couldn't help but request their friendship also.

i'm but a drop in the bucket. they both have over 1,500 friends. and i wouldn't say i'm a scary drop either 8)

and after a bit of research, i've found that there are hoards of drooling girls crawling all over their profiles. so i don't feel so bad after all. although i have begun to envy them more.....

Yeah, I thought twice about accepting their friend requests, but they haven't been any trouble.
