I have a vague recollection of a character in the Nicholas Lyndhurst eighties sitcom 'The Two of Us' having a pet rock. I cannot however find anything online to back up my misty knowledge of dodgy sitcoms.

It was another rape gag. They seem to be quite the coming thing.

I rather suspected as much, but I figured I shouldn't start yelling and come across as a complete harpy. Let's stop it, though.

PDR - you of all people shouldn't don the holier-than-thou cloak.

CD - your restraint is admirable, and certainly in this case justified if you bother to read back where and in what context that Rohypnol remark was made.

I almost said something when the remark was made on the "bad taste" thread, but I figured since it was there I should leave it alone. I understand that sometimes one think of something that isn't appropriate to say then and there, and taking it in the "bad taste" thread seemed okay enough.

I don't see the need for it here, but I guess I'm more interested in it not happening again. Not joking about highly traumatising stuff shouldn't be too much to ask for, should it?

Sorry, CD.

Apologies again. Happy to delete any posts anyone finds offensive. Haven't done so thus far as some forummers don't like deletions.
I decided it was 'okay' to post on the 'offensive' thread. My main concern was that it was offensive to Posital but hoped he knew me well enough by now. It's easy to forget how open this forum is.

Absolutely, just a joke. No connection with reality whatsoever. They wouldn't drink it anyway - I checked.

As to buying another pet rock - that would depend on the price... and whether it had a pedigree...

Are they available in hypo-alergenic poodle-crossed hybrids like quartzadoodle or granitapoo?

I wouldn't bother with a pet rock. Although I imagine it would break fewer things than my two cats. I have heard of (via two different tv shows) of students being given pet eggs to learn responsibility. You know, making sure it doesn't break.

But then how will they ever learn to make an omelette? :P

It's a simple enough process:

1. Find woman
2. Say "I want an omlette"
3. Despatch her to the kitchen
4. Eat omtlette

Where do the egg handling lessons come into it?

You're not walking on egg shells, that much is clear...

PDR = Prolific Degrading Rhetoric? ;)

Google "Pet rock down boy" for a pet rock related chuckle.

I never had a pet rock but I had a pet log for a while.
