Well, I said to myself, Thomas, this is the digital age. No longer are such obscure and bizarre memories confined to the ol' grey-matter. What with the "Internet" and all, why, I bet I can locate a real-life copy of those very videos.
So I brewed myself a strong cup of the good stuff and summoned the Google forth. No less than five minutes later, I was re-living the merriment once more. And, such are the wondrous ways of the dubya-dubya-dubya, I am pleased to share the good times. Here, for the purposes of amusement and intimacy are the two pearls from the depths of my rememberings.

Things sure are funny these days, you know what I'm saying? Why, just the other day I was serving in a Public Bar when a skeleton came up to me and asked me the time. I told him is was half past five and he said that he was late for some appointment or other. The makings of a fine joke, but sadly life doesn't always imitate humour. And life rarely imitates those well scripted jokes you read between chapters in the Readers' Digest. At least my life doesn't imitate them. My life doesn't imitate anything really, except that extremely poor Sean Connery imitation that everyone can do.
Where am I going with this? That's not rhetorical. Or is it? No. I seriously don't know where I'm going with this. Just a sec, I'm going to my special place (myspace.com/easilyoffended)
Okay, I'm back. And I got myself together. Here are some videos that my friend Jonathan and I took for fun. They're amusing...but at the same time, they make you think. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present, "The Trolley Series"...

So we bought a new car.
My wife and I thought we'd stroll down the dozen or so car-yards of Main Rd, Cardiff (NSW Australia) and have a bit of a squizz at what's on offer and for how much and in what colours.
Buyers beware! A car salesman roams aound like a lion. A sort of stealthy lion in sunglasses and a hat. Dressed almost perfectly (the socks give them away, you see).
As I recall, we had just finished strolling around the selection of late-model used cars, about to head home when we struck upon the idea of enquiring about a couple of the new Toyotas out the front. So we made for the showroom, partly to make our enquiry but mostly to get out of the heat. After that it gets a bit hazy. There was something about a lion in bad socks and the next thing I know we were signing some sort of contract. Somewhere along the line we were convinced far beyond a shadow of a doubt that the new Corolla was the only car for us. And so it remains.
I was once of the opinion that I would never buy a new car. Waste of money, I foolishly thought. But that was before our "encounter" and subsequent enlightenment. I can't really pass on any sort of logical rationale, except to suggest that anyone whose faith in new cars haswaivered somewhat really should book themselves in for a session with one of these salespeople.
Oh yes, they smell great too (the new cars, not the salespeople).

will all make you lose a couple points.
