{HA, HA yet another coding error by an Imperialist Admin.}

Nightlamp will be hitting himself with his own shoe outside the gates of Hell before long for those foolish words. The faltering forces of Hell will be firing Scud missiles at themselves, for such is the reputation that the Admins have gained.

Such is the desert that is Nightlamp's intellect that he seeks to threaten the mighty Moth with a mere toad! Does he not know that even a dragon could not consume her?

Listen, this puny insult does not frighten us any longer. The idiotic threats do not frighten anyone. We are catching them like fish in a river. I mean here that over the past two days we managed to shoot down 196 idle insults before they hit their target!

The Hell hosts will be buried in a sea of shoes before they triumph over the Mighty Administrator Laura! The fate that the seer Louise prophesised for them shall surely come to pass!

Ha, the intellect-free nightlamp believes Administrator Laura has made a coding error -- but lies fly from his mouth like farts from his beard. Worthy Rosssweisse made a coding error! Administrator Laura was generously pointing it out for her!

Worthy Moth, you made them drink poison last night and The Administrator's soldiers and great forces gave the RooKish Hordes a lesson which will not be forgotten by history. Truly.

On this occasion, I am not going to mention the number of the nighlamp's pathetic terriers who were killed and the number of destroyed codes. The operation continues.

We're giving them a real lesson today. Heavy doesn't accurately describe the level of casualties we have inflicted.

Be assured, the Ship is safe, protected.

Today I have visited whole Ship! No invaders found. You go and see how we have ousted them from this ship! They are cying outside and waiting to receive butt-kicking. They will be swallowed up shortly.

I was delighted to read this morning that rumours of Baghdad Bob's death, like that of Mark Twain,may have been exaggerated.

In one of those "you-couldn't-make-it-up" moments, US soldiers apparently refused to accept his surrender, on the grounds that he wasn't among the 55 "most wanted" of the former Iraqi regime.

Even better, Channel 9 news, in Australia, reported this morning that al-Sahhaf has been offered a job on Dubai TV.

Good news everyone! Reports of the information minister's demise appear to have been much exaggerated

Apparently he's staying at his Auntie's house and he's very upset because the American forces are refusing to arrest him!

You can see why he might have problems -

"But I am Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf! Really! I'm a dangerous war criminal - you must arrest me or a thousand desert jackals will feast on your entrails! I refuse to not be locked up! Never!"

Bored US soldier " Yes Sir, I'm sure you're very very dangerous indeed and ought to be arrested at once - now would you mind moving along, there's a queue?"

The unkindest cut of all:
quote:
From the BBC website new report:

US President George W Bush has admitted that he enjoyed Mr Sahhaf's briefings so much that he used to interrupt some of his meetings just to watch him.

"He's my man, he was great," he told NBC television in a recent interview. "Somebody accused us of hiring him and putting him there. He was a classic."

Laura, do you actually know how to use UBB code? It seems lately that every post you make has been edited by either RooK or Nightlamp for blown code. Now either they're simply putting edits in when there's no need, or you're getting really cackhanded in your old age.

Or, Laura has been replaced by the IIM...

See how the infidel have fallen into our traps! Laura is victorious! By deliberately leaving UBB errors in her posts she exposes the truly insane pettiness of the Hell hosts! The tiny-minded UBB spouting trolls of the Hell board quail before her magnificent campaign of correct apostrophe use! Laura triumphs again!

See, mighty Louise, how so-called "Hell-toaster" sarky cow has been suborned by the forces of Nightlamp's terriers. She is no more than a hamburger in disguise. We will feast upon her and her sarky comments. I have this from an inside source.

Now, I demonstrate wonders of coding:
Administrator Laura rules because she is more
  • mighty
  • worthy
  • impressive
  • punctual and
  • charming
than all the Hellish horde. They quail in horror before her worthiness.

Absolutley, Laura, for drinking men under the table is what I was born for, and though I've met Louise only once, it was in a pub, which must count for something. (Fancy RooK drinking milk by the way, what a thing to admit on a thread in hell. It quite ruins my mental picture of him, somehow.)

And if you wanted to be the IIM as well as the Mighty Administrator Laura you could do it with one hand tied behind your back!

As for the alleged coding errors, I cannot improve on The Man Himself : "I can assure you that those villains will recognize, will discover in appropriate time in the future how stupid they are and how they are pretending things which have never taken place."

See, a quotation appropriate for every occasion!
