100 Great Things

I was imaging men swearing when I was writing the above, particularly middle aged men. Yes, come to think of it, Taiwanese women swear about as much as they pass wind, which, as far as I know, is never.

I dunno man, Ladyfunk says “shit” quite often.

With good reason I would imagine. :wink: Is it often swathed in the words, “Funk500 you annoying (shit) I am going to kill you!” :smiley:

Don’t know which number were on (not that it matters)

But I love Stationery Shops. Can spend far too long in them, looking at items I didn’t know existed.

+1 to that … the ones with cute pictures on them are my favourite.

I don’t know what number we are on but the mountains contain some great things.
