    To Celebrate Our Million – Comical Quotes To Brighten Your Sunday Breakfast! 

    My thanks to JazPen, a frequent commenter, for asking which posts since we re-started RRA were the most popular. I ran a check and was surprised I’d forgotten all about this one, published July 6th 2011. It got more than 2500 views.





    As I read through it, already cheerful due to our million hits achievement last night this morning –https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2015/08/15/one-million-rra-readers-hallelujah/   – I laughed aloud more than once, so maybe our newer readers will enjoy the quotes too!

     Sometimes people say this blog is too serious, so, having received the following from one of my Scottish contributors, I felt I should brighten up your new day with it.

    I certainly laughed out loud at some of the quotes!

    “Angry drunk woman attacked boyfriend for refusing sex…” 

    Angry drunk woman attacked boyfriend for refusing sex

    Angry drunk woman attacked boyfriend for refusing sex

    A US woman has been arrested for beating up her boyfriend because he said no to sex. Tabatha Lee Grooms, 35, returned home from a boozy night out still fuming with her boyfriend for spurning her advances earlier in the day…

    How could he?

    Maybe he was in a grumpy mood after somebody broke his white stick?


    Actually, it’s a serious issue, but humour can make you think!


    Enough already. I’m going out while that hot Jakarta sun still shines. Since my warteg is now closed for Ramadan, I aim to make a virtue of necessity and indulge myself with a glorious Twelfth brunch!

    Ulster’s Terrorist Republican Minority – A Joke Begets a DEATH THREAT! 

    GregoryCampbell Gregory Campbell MP


    The East Londonderry DUP MP has been contacted by police about a “serious threat to his life”, amid an ongoing row over comments he made about the Irish language.

    My God, we know these IRA/Sinn Fein scumbags are bigoted beasts, for sure, but can’t they even take a joke?

    We here in Jakarta make language jokes all the time!

    If I ask my good-natured Indonesian visitors ‘Apa Kabar?’ (How are you?) they may well reply, ‘Sepeda, sepeda.”

    Bike And Girl Wallpaper (14)

    That means ‘bicycle, bicycle!’ But they are playing on the proper response,’Baik,baik,” which means “Fine!”

    Good humour, yeah? 

    Which Sinn Fein/IRA obviously lack!

    Earlier this month Mr Campbell said “curry my yoghurt can coca coal yer” while putting a question to Sinn Féin Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín in the Assembly. His words sound similar to the phrase “go raibh maith agat, Ceann Comhairle”, which is used by some Sinn Féin members and means “thank you, Speaker”

    Whatever the merits of Gaelic-Irish language lessons, it was perfectly clear that Mr. Campbell was poking fun at his republican opponents, who, sedulous in their role as Eire’s Fifth Column, flaunt these linguistic affectations in Ulster’s provincial legislature…


    • english-post-english-not-good
    • …yet almost certainly speak the lingo of Wicked Old England when downing their Guinness in the Falls Road rat-hole pubs where they plot their subversion.

    So good for Gregory, who stoutly stands his ground, telling the vermin that he “will not be dictated to or deflected by terrorists! Exposing those politicising the Irish language, as well as those making unrealistic political demands at the talks table is the right thing to do.”
