Oh please, any more and he will need an elasticated hat and we will need a large bucket.

If anything, he has a certain Brando-esque look about him.

You will learn over time that we do not always speak in direct terms and we talsk as if we were speaking, but without the inflections and sign language and smells.

when you get reenacting, your eyes will be opened wide.

Rule one: Always assume there is an innuendo or lightly veiled jibe at someone if you don't get something that has just been said or posted.
Rule two: Always assume its well meant and not malicious :D
Rule three: There are always at least ten people whose minds are dirtier and more twisted than yours, so if all else fails, just smile serenely and let it all wash round you :lol:

You look very smart Phil, and expect to see a picture of you riding in them sometime soon.

The breaches certainly look roomy enough, and they also look like they "swish" nicely when you walk.
Young men have often been ruined through owning horses, or through backing them, but never through riding them: unless of course they break their necks, which, taken at a gallop, is a very good death to die

They inflate like an airbag when I fall off and when under arrow attack- just like Evil in Time Bandits ;)

Fantastic - you couldn't design that if you tried.

So by carefully building in gas canisters you should be able to scare the bejesus out of small animals, children, and potentially their parents too..!

Nope theya re sooo heavy he will just bounce off
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Choose the right gas, inflate them completely and you could really take the weight of your feet. They'd just be saying "Mr Le GRips has always been light on his feet," then you could throw in a sudden back flip and float away. ... :D

The trouble with that design of kecks is that it reminds me irresistably of a toddler with a very full nappy which has just started to sag and is only being kept up by the plastic pants....

First time I looked at it "my brain hurts" came to mind.

BUT

I was far too polite to say so.

That and I was in awe of those tremendous trousers.

They really are most fantastic.

The size of the pockets you could put in those, and the array of artefacts and small mammals you could keep in them makes them far to tempting for week willed fools like I

Ah. Blimey Rae and Mick travel over to bandit country to play, brave souls.

Mick does look rather dashing in one photo, Rae still looks fab.
