I'd get a metal bin for the food if you can't get the phone box.

 

Probably cheaper!

 

I've got loads and loads of metal bins - but its not the same. It echoes when you try to make a phone call in them.

 

Top Cat swore by them.! :lol::lol:

Top Cat!

The most effectual Top Cat!

Who's intellectual

Close friends get to call him T.C.

Providing it's with dignity.

Top Cat!

The indisputable leader of the gang.

He's the boss, he's a VIP, he's a championship.

He's the most tip top,

Top Cat.

Yes he's a chief, he's a king

But above everything,

He's the most tip top,

Top Cat.

Top Cat!

 

Well Bennie, if it isn't Officer Dibble sir :wink:

No Fred....Richard is perfectly sane......anyone who can remember the words to Top Cat shows great mental faculty.

 

We had a bit of a tread about him a while ago....and none of us could get the tune out of our heads! :lol:

I remember reading the Radio Times years ago & they had a question page in it- someone asked what were the words to the Top Cat song. They thought the "with dignity" bit was "wetting the tea" & they wanted to have it clarified.....

Please don't ask me how that useless bit of info has stayed in my brain for about 25 years :oops:

I've just been listening to a song by the Pet Shop Boys from a few years back (don't ask me why) and the refrain (I'm feeling posh tonight - OK chorus) bit included, I think, there'll be bluer skies whenever you're around

 

Unfortuately it has stuck with me as there'll be blue "Ooops, word censored!"d flies whenever you're around

 

Not much to do with Top Cat, but there you go.

We must all be similar ages, because we all remember the same things :roll::oops: I got stuck on the Casey Jones theme tune once when Kate sent me a link to it... I just loved that programme.

Remember the Cadbury finger of fudge add? "A finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat..." etc etc?

 

My friend grew up thinking it "was full of peppery goodness" (instead of Cadbury goodness...) :roll:

 

And that Eurythmics song Love is a Stranger? I heard the opening line as "Love is a stranger in an oven glove". Apparently it's "open car", or something... :oops:

 

Oh, and my other friend's Dad told him that ice cream vans only played music when they'd run out of ice cream :liar:

If you do get the tune stuck in your head, just sing Postman Pat - that will get rid of the Top Cat lyrics :wink:

 

I made the mistake of putting Cbeebies on for Stefan this morning to distract him while I washed up. Postman Pat was on.

 

I'd just got it out of my head when I picked up this thread. TopCat I can deal with, but please....no more Postman Pat.

 

Has anyone heard the new Thomas tune. It's infectious. Once heard - NEVER forgotten.....

 

Kate - the Madonna lyrics made me laugh!

 

the most obvious blunder has to be,

 

"Excuse me while I kiss this guy"

 

:lol:

 

Edit - which reminds me...

They said that they can cost thousands if in good nick.

Lots on ebay Richard, price varies according to condition. There is also a company who specialises in them, if you search ebay for "red phone box" you'll get their web address.
