I believe that the new film about Margaret Thatcher "The Iron Lady", starring Meryl Streep, has been deemed as unsuitable for minors :shock: :shock: :shock::D

It's a J-O-K-E PJ, you know - a pun, a play on words. Doh! Some fell on stoney ground :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I knew it was a joke Asp, well I thought it was but you told it wrong :roll: :roll: :roll: Or perhaps thats why you didn't put it in the JOKE section. :mrgreen:

 

Anyway I believe the makers of this movie considered waiting until Thatcher died before making it, just to ensure a happy ending. :wink: :wink:

Well if you knew it was a joke PJ why didn't you just laugh (or not) and leave it at that instead of making out I'd done it wrong somehow? :roll:

surely it should be miners Asp

 

Let's see:

 

No capital letter for the start of a sentence.

 

No comma preceding a proper noun.

 

Use of a capital when the subject clearly prefers to use the lower case.

 

I reckon this poster is either:

 

one of those chirpy winder upperers who never gets wound up about anything, oh no. (LOL!)

 

or

 

Thick as .... not very bright when it comes to pedantry.

 

Oh, forgot this:

 

:P

Looking back up I see I was obviously wrong and apologise to Asp for amending his wonderfully funny and gramatically correct joke. I never realised I was missing plays on words until Fatshaft and Fugtifino posted. You see, I always assumed their forum names were word plays when in fact they are clearly literal descriptions of themselves. If I can be wrong there then why not with the OP :D :grin: :wink:

Been doing a spot of googling PJ? The other saying is "brevity is the the soul of wit" so enough said I think. :roll: :roll: :roll:
