One of the side effects of too much Chinese food?

Makes you think of an inscrutable smile doesn't it?  Maybe that's where it comes from.

By the way Paul is there any truth in the rumour that you are going to become an importer for the latest range of Chinese disposable RC model boats? 

Apparently they are so cheap that when the battery is flat you simply chuck it away and get another one out of the box.  It would seem they are not going to be fitted with rudders and will rely on bouncing off other boats around them for steering.

Don't worry "Bunky" I won't be importing any of the 29.99 Chinese jobs, we make real models not junk's ?? ;D Any good that? ???
 Anyway, there is no truth in the rhumor, but, I beleive there may be someone who may have got their touchie's burnt a bit? Regarding certain Chinese things and I am not talking spare ribs.
 I am on neat Bangladeshi tonight and very nice too!

  Reminds of when I was looking for information on the French escort carrier Dixmude. This ship was formerly HMS Biter, and the search turned up several pages in French. Being idle, I used the translation facility and was surprised (to say the least) by references to HMS F*cker and HMS To f*ck!

  Took me a while to work out that bite is French slang (along with chipolata and many others) for the male member, and biter the informal verb for what some might consider its more important use.

  Never trust translation software when writing to someone in another language!
