( b ) The missus is very? intelligent awarded "duex"? for maths in a good private school, and choose to marry me.
This decision was NOT influenced by the size of my penis or sexual performance.
(c) we have two intelligent children who passed the 11 plus selection examination WITHOUT CRAMMING. Which is virtually unheard of in our circles. Nor did we ever get involved with any of their homework or revision.
So ya boo sucks to you.
Now if you would care to explain about the price of eggs in Denmark?
That's useful. Did you get your wife to write it for you?

For everybody who do not know, a Tibetan can spot a Han or Hui or a Qiang or a Mongolian in a second and vice versa. Even a rioting mob can tell who is rioting with them so a pseudo non Tibetan monk would stick out

Actually Dopey old boy
I did not get my wife to write it for me
Reason: My written English is much better than my wife's.
She mostly corrects her pupils on their use of spoken English, not written.
See, I did try and explain that I had, and still have, a modicum of intelligence.
I enjoy the power of the written English language, even though I would be the first to admit that my spelling never was that good and is getting worse.
However my Director at work has stopped sending me emails or other communications using unnecessarily obscure words, because I DONT need to look up a dictionary to understand them and instantly reply in kind.
Game ( for him anyway ) over.
Now what was that about the price of eggs in Denmark.
Having mulled it over, is it perhaps an allusion to sticking one's nose into other countries affairs?
Like Grasshopper I await enlightment.
I got a "B" in "A" level English, with zero study or revision, ( too busy hunting rabbits with a .22 ) while studing Maths and Physics to qualify for an Engineering degree.
Ya boo sucks to you Dopey
What polish would you recommend for my Halo?
