Wow, almost 1/4 of a century, you are old!

Over a decade since I was down under too.

Or is "double dockers" more of a fetish thing than a typo

Used like in the Eagles song "The Last Resort"

Some rich men came and raped the land,
Nobody caught 'em
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,
people bought 'em
And they called it paradise
The place to be
They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea

Aka Buggered the natural spirit of the place

I now own a sea safari company and I am always asked on every trip to go faster!!
Brave of you to ask - I would have thought that speed limits on UK waters would be the first hurdle and the H and S attitude isn't a shock to me either, I guess you'll never know for sure unless you ask!

Well, seeing as how it's YOUR thread and all - here's the killing post:

A lad is painting a house. The woman has a pair of Dachshunds, the female is in heat. He's painting the hall and she's going out to the shops. She ties the bitche's lead to the bannisters upstairs and tells the painter to keep her up there, with the dog running free downstairs. She makes to leave but the bloke asks her will the dog not just run upstairs when his back is turned and do the do on the bitch.

She smiles and says "Well, he's an eager wee chap, and full of energy - but there's no way he's getting up those stairs with a hard-on..."
