Stranded by the tide

http://www.thisissouthwales.co.uk/di...Pk=88499#views

Our local rag reported that over the Bank Holiday weekend quite a few people got cut off by the tide.

Mumbles and Worms Head are always the 2 main places.

In one case a woman in high heels - fishnets and a miniskirt had to be recued along with her friends.

In all the cases reported the people called for help first via mobile phone.

What I would like to know is why the hell didn't the coastguard give them a bollocking and tell them to stay put until the morning? A freezing cold night on an island would teach them a valuable lesson and save the RNLI money!!!

"Three Portuguese tourists and a man from Monmouthsire had to call for help after realising they were stuck on the island and were in danger of drowning. One of the group was able to raise the alarm on a mobile phone."

In danger of drowning??? Sea levels would have to rise about 100' for them to drown on that island!!!

They always seem to exagerate many of these rescues . I just think that the RNLI or coastguard should make the idiots pay .
A little bill for a helicopter might make people more careful.

Dozy bint? Is that Codprawnese for dizzy broad? Definitely a new slang term for most of us "Yanks". How's the boat coming Cod? If you don't get it soon I may beat you to launch....

Bint is an Arabic term meaning daughter. It was brought back by British soldiers when we ran the Empire - it had almost died out but it seems to be used more again now.

I use it in the context of "stupid woman" or "bimbo". I usually refer to my on/off on/off girlfriend as Skinny Bint or SB for short!!!

as to getting my boat should be about the 20th - loads to arrange.

I bought the bint.org domain - with the idea to do a "hot or not" type thing.. i.e people upload pictures of "proposed bint" and people could rank them!

Never got around to it though

Come on Codders, get with it! They were obviously making a porn movie. A slapper in fishnets, 3 'Portuguese' guys and a local bloke with a lot of 'bird watching' equipment. Eh? I'm surprised that the CG guys turning up in rubber suits didn't get roped in as Extras. 'Jose Does Myfanwy' starring 3 welsh blokes in rubber suits! It'll sell millions!
