Thinklings

Post by odo banks on Tue May 17, 2011 12:09 am

Aah there you are fellow guys... I have started this secret thread so we folk can have proper intelligent conversations. Calling it "Thinklings" will fool the girls of course. They'll no doubt see the word "Thinklings", notice that "Think" is the key portion of the word, yawn, and move on. Clever, hey? Very Happy

This thread is for Thinkers (i.e. Males). Feel free to come up with any deep and philosophical subject.... err... can't think of anything just now... Embarassed

I'm curious as to your opinions on a matter that has been troubling me for some time, Odo, since I know you are a highly respectable Hobbit. I know we both strongly value respectability and tradition, and it has been troubling me that I know women disproportionately vote for so-called "liberal" groups that want to dispense with tradition (probably funded by Peter Jackson Mad). Should we reinstate limits on the right to vote in order to keep society on the straight and narrow? elephant

My goodness, how did you find out about us, Baingil? Shocked Oh well, the damage is done. I dare say some liberal among us spilled the beans - GB perhaps?

As to women knowing their place, all I can say is that the ladies of my circle, my niece Mirabella, and my wives, Bella and Primmy, know their place. We don't forget the Patriarchs around here! But as to respectability and tradition, Mr Freedom, it is surely up to the good folk, like you and I, to promote "goodness" at every turn, whether day, night or very early in the morning (which is when I usually get woken by raucus singing and the horrid noise of cats being strangled - or it might be bagpipes). All I can say, Mr Freedom, is we must not give in to slackness, casualness, nor fuzzy thinking --- that is, to liberality! Mad

Oh, is my early morning practicing on the bagpipes disturbing you? Oops. Embarassed

And as for finding out where this was, well, someone once told me not to judge a book by its cover. So I guess I shouldn't judge a thread by its title. Seems to work pretty well as a philosophy for nosiness. Very Happy

The cunning thoughts of women! Shocked Unpredictability, that's the main problem! And prying... yes, that's right... Fancy being proud of that? Mad


Mr Freedom, see the problems I face here! Start up a perfectly respectable thread and before you know it, we've got the fairer sex messing things up. Disgraceful, what! Mad

Interesting? Maybe on the Girlie Gossip Thread it could be termed that way, but this, my good lady, is the "Thinklings" Thread. This conversation does reveal though why this is no fit place for a lady! I mean it kindly! Smile

Oh ... oh my.

I think I underestimated the strength of the forces besieging respectability on this forum, Mr Banks. Shocked

One must never underestimate the forces of unrespectability and disrespectability in Forumshire, Mr Freedom. One can never sleep. One must never be caught napping! Mad

As to you, Baingil, I suspect you to be an agent provacateur of the worst kind. Desist! ('ware the Order of the Rectangular Table. I shall say no more. Heed! Heed, I say!)

I'm more amazed they got in Odo- thats some handshake you've got on the door, might be quicker if I bring a step ladder next time. cyclops

Maybe you need extra security, something the women folk would never be able to pass- like wiring a plug or putting up shelves. Or having a conversation for more than five minutes thats not about them. Something like that. Here to help and all that! Very Happy Laughing

If I may be permitted to join in with the obvious sexism present in this thread, I will recite my poem that I came up with a few moments ago:

Women shouldn't have views,
nor should they think,
just give them shoes,
and stand them by the sink!


Well it's not mine, someone sent it to me on another forum, but its still great!! Very Happy
