I last wrote in terms of the site as a conceptual wasteland that has now become more of a dessert. The sands of time drifting across an empty landscape broken only by the baleful echoes of Bloo beckoning the disillusioned back to the site, like a deserted Banshee. Bloo who achieved in one badly conceived and written, ribald limerick what the combined machinations of Formerly Fats, Curly’s Older Wiser and Mona et al had failed to achieve, namely the exorcising of Boo Boo from the site. Still we were always aware of Bloo’s propensity for the baser experiences of life from urinating shire horses to tent dogging. Is the site forever a ghostly reminder of what used to be or can it be revived to its former glories? Will Boo Boo return to the chagrin of his of his enemies? Will Formerly Fats and Friends return to gloat over the corpse of Boo Boo? Will Bloo finally reach the end of his downward spiral and disappear the up the hole in his culture. Watch this space!
WW1 no,I wasnt there.
Oliver, if ever you feel inclined to post a comment in here or other forums Kick the middle name 'Tarquin' in touch. Won,t go down too well in Wigan WW1? I had to drop 'Peabody' to get recognition. keep posting you may livin up the corpses.
Alas Cliff (Bloo) as desirable as it may be, I never have even visited Greenough Street. But I am tired of people stopping me and saying that they have read about me in Wigan World. I
oh ok, Oliver we got that out of the way then, not seen you in here before but welcome from me and all my friends in here, please dont cite a poem or speak Latin, it wont be appreciated, well we,re talkin Greenough streeters in here they didnt all make it to higher education like some of us but we stick together, did you reside around about our bless ed' land , tell us more I,m sure all will be intrigued as it gone very quiet in here of late, we await your comments and they will be surely appreciated,thanking you in anticipation.
I want to make it abundantly and crystal clear that I am in no way related or otherwise know or have anything what so ever to do with Bernard Dowdall.
Its just a poem for G,ds sake, it took a lot of thought ok I got challenged to write a poem and the word TIMBUKTOO had to be incorporated, so, there you go its a masterpiece it will go down in history, I have found my true vocation I have started to write my book of poems so I guess I,ll be pretty busy, this winter of discontent. So farewell my shallow friends and 'may your turtles lay many eggs'
My appologies to Boo too. Bloo you should know better. Wash your mouth out with soap.
Sorry. Last message should read "Mr Bloo" should consider vountary retirement from the site. These silly names only cause confusion.
Yatesy you are 100% correct. I hereby unreservedly apologise to Mr Sandside. It would help if he used his proper name in future. As for Mr Boo. He should take on board the condemnation of contributors to the site and take voluntary retirement.
a bottle of whiskey on offer for the 800th poster in here. good luck.
I think an appology is in order to Boo Boo Sandside from Mona and FFW.
guess ur right there yatsey, its when it all comes out on one line makes it crappier than what it is, ok ok your right. we best let longfellow sleep.
Stick to the day job Bloo. You make Boo seem like Lord Byron. God only hopes you dont start Boo off with his ***! attempts at poetry.
me and Tim went a huntin for a tent Sam Melling had some but only for rent so to primark we went still huntin for a pop up tent they had none so home we went.
boo must be pretty brassed off. bloo writes all the filth an he gets the blame an nobody says nowt about bloo.
Very good point Cliff.
anybody know where Greenough street is ?
Mrs Y thinks I'm going bonkers chuckling under my breath. Must get this off my chest before I close down tonight. Boo and Bloo what I right cople o' dipsticks. Hee hee ha ha ... talk about Beavis & Butthead .. the family Numpty.. Boo n' Bloo Numpty!!!!!!!!
Mona, get ur specks checked or just stop drinkin you mixin your Boo with Bloo. it was Bloo who entered the pop up tent not boo. Hope I dont meet you in a pop up tent.
Hey Boo lad. If you weren't so b. arrogant I'd almost feel sorry for you. You would find trouble in a ladies sewing circle. But there's never a dull moment with you. Can't help but chuckle ..keep up the good work Boo.
Neither one of you sets much of a good example, running around in inappropriate clothing and writing unhealthy comments on the internet. You both need to examine your consciences. If you must write at all then you should consider writing on more appropriate sites that cater for the deviant.
It was me boo, my attempt at a poem, take no heed of the rabble who have infiltrated this treasured room.
I now see why some of you are upset because i have just read what somebody calling himself bloo has written and i can assure you it is not me and i don't think its Cliff bloo either so as far as i am concerned that is it.All my comments have been above board and tongue in cheek and even though i have taken a lot of stick from some individuals never never would i resort to that kind of behaviour.
Will some body please explain to these idiots what those Latin phrases mean .There is nothing untoward what so ever.Come on Bloo you know Latin.
Yeah man Tez. Pretty sleazy situation. Then if you let dudes who mince about in sailor suits on the site..you get what you ask for. Look there's only mainly Bloomoon who writes now as well as Sailor Sandside and his nom de plumes. I had stopped as had most of the gang. So I'll ask all the regulars to tow the party line and give a statement of intent. So come on yo men and lasses and lets hear from you ..even if its the last time. Abandon the site until Sailor Sandside casts off for good. Keel haul the filthy beast. This is a family site not an adult one. Stand up for decent standards. I've told my daughter to keep the grandkids off the site I dont want them reading the filth that Sailor Sandside writes.
Our Bernie has stopped writing on the site and I will follow. Boo Sanside should be banned. A bit of British ribald humour yeah but this is downright filth. Disgusting. fats I appeal to you .. call for a ban of Boo Sandside. I wasnt going to write again but I cant stand by and do nothing in face of this depravity.
Me transmitte sursum caledoni or for Mona's benefit in plain English.Beam me up Scotty.
For your uneducated self Mona.Fac ut vivas in Latin means Get a life.Goodness knows what you thought it meant.
That Mr Sandside is absolutely disgusting. I am very surprised they allowed it on the site. You have taken the site to a low it should never have reached. This a family site. We have said in the past that you were not fit to write on the site. I only hope now that everyone can see your ilk and abandon the site until you go.
Me an Tim a hunting we went Met 3 whores in a pop-up tent They was 3 we was 2 so I bucked one and TIMBUKTOO
Ab uno disce omnes Boo.
Fac ut vivas Edgar.
Procol harum Boo. Son of Sam et Bloomoon. Reqiescat in pace.
I lived in Every ST as well SAM but a little before your time i think.It was always a good talking point.
Don't take it to heart Sam it's all in good fun although some saddos take it far too seriously espescially the ones who don't understand Latin or poetry.

Reports I have received from TV sources rumour that Bernard Dowdall will be featuring in Coronation Street at a future date. In line with the policy of revisiting ealier interests (e.g. the re-appearance of Jed Stone)Bernard will appear as Elsie Tanners long lost love child.
PER ARDUA AD ASTRA William.
When I was a young lad and doing prep at Wigan Grammar School I was very fond of the tuck shop. Mother therefore scolded me, stopped my pocket money and arranged for me to have lunch at my Nan’s house in Greenough Street. I used to trundle down Greenough Street on my way back to school behind Clifford Higham and other older boys. I once passed the school gym where they caned boys. I could hear Clifford crying out “Yaroops, Argh, Gerroff” and Mr. Gore replying, “Shut up boy or I will hit you harder”. My pal Oliver “Lardy” Wimpole said to me “If you shout when being caned it makes the pain easier to bear and may get you sympathy from the beastly master caning you”. “Cripes” I said, “I will do my best not to get the cane.” After that I always did my Latin homework because Mr Gore, the Assistant Head was also my Latin Master.
