With the fuss about a certain choice of fancy dress outfits going on, I thought I'd look for some alternatives.

Please do NOT follow these links if you are likely to be offended by things of very, very poor taste. And please do not look at them if you are at work! You have been warned!!!

I am sure some of those would offend someone. Thats the problem with the PC Brigade in todays society, people are too frightened to have a laugh because it might offend. As long as whatever someone does carries not malicious intent, what the problem.

I have been off work today with a bit of the flu, and i have sadly been watching the superb morning TV this country produces....apart from now being brain dead, all I saw was MP's and Celebrities watchers going on about Harry and that costume......who cares! I am sure these MP's have far more important topics to discuss than some 20 year old going to a private fancy dress party, where I hope he had fun, got drunk, stoned and whatever else other 20 year olds get up to!

Bring back FUN, live a little, dare to be different!

Well, there's always:

banning smoking (I don't smoke myself, but I consider this a major invasion of personal liberty to abuse yourself)
banning smacking
banning foxhunting
speed cameras and how they improve safety
etc, etc, etc.

Personally, I think it's probably better that they waste their time on this rather than screwing the country up any further.

I mean, FFS, it was a private party, the Sun paid £100K for the photo, invasion of privacy, respect for Diana's kids, yadda yadda yadda. Sure it was in bad taste, but really...
Ciao,

Poor taste?? I'd call them plain humourous...amusing.

I have just e-mailed them round the entire office and judging by the laughter I'd say everyone else finds them good and funny too!

Ironic (in the Macbeth / Banquo sense of the word) that 'arry chose a Nazi uniform, given that at least part of his family ancestry (the Battenburg part) is, in fact, errm, German....

...also the uniform, which seems to have been a poor copy of that sported by Rommel's "Afrika Korps", was spectacularly well-timed given Reichskšnzler Gordon Brown's (or should that be Braun?) "Brown Plan" for Africa.....

I'm merely referring to Nostrils' posting, which rather neatly went on about Harry's near-total lack of tact (like father, like son).

If you go back in history, you will find that much of our present Royal family owes its existence to German blood, thanks to the House of Hanover (18th century right up to 1837). Even after that, there was further German influence thanks to Prince Albert (of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha).

The family name of "Windsor", if I remember correctly, is artificial. Technically the current mob are Battenburgs (or Mountbatten, if you prefer).

By sporting German (albeit Nazi) replica uniform, all Prince Harry is doing is going back to his roots in his usual tactless way. That is the irony. And I mean irony in the proper sense of the word, as reflected in Shakespeare's "Scottish Play".

In Act III, Scene I, Macbeth reminds Banquo (who he later arranges to have murdered) to attend a gathering:

"Fail not our feast"

to which Banquo replies:

"My Lord, I will not"

...and indeed he does not, because in Act III, Scene IV, having been murdered earlier, he does attend the feast - as a ghost....and visible only to Macbeth!

Hence Banquo failed not the feast....but not quite in the way Macbeth purported to remind him.

Too often, the word "irony" is used by journalists (who have combined to ruin the use of the English language in the last 15 to 20 years), when they actually mean "paradox" (the reverse of something). It really is painful to read.

Well, you asked me to explain, so ye did. Ah, sure you wouldn't expect anything less.....

Nigel can drive a car to an advanced standard, but he can't spell.

no as the message box for firefox that comes with this software is different. i think it is because iespell is only an MSIE plugin.

Instead just bookmark www.dictionary.com

Nigel - have you a pop-up blocker installed, e.g. the google toolbar?

Dont you mean google "foolbar" ... that'll be that damn spell checker again.

I must say tho, what a start to 2005, a link to soft-porn on the forum, two moderators involved and not an edit in sight.

Might start throwing in a bit of my choice language if its going to carry on.

Keep up the good work.
