The Sign

Recommended Posts

Guest

From anecdotage.com:

 

While working in Paris in 1949, Brendan Behan - a housepainter by trade - was asked to paint a sign on the window of a cafe to attract English tourists. Behan kindly complied, composing a short poem:

 

Come in, you Anglo-Saxon swine

And drink of my Algerian wine!

'Twill turn your eyeballs black and blue,

And damn well good enough for you!

 

Having received payment for the job, Behan fled before the cafe's proprietor had time to have the rhyme translated.

 

[Perhaps unsurprisingly, Behan was later imprisoned (twice) for IRA-related political offenses.]

 

 

Behan, Brendan (1923-1964), Irish playwright [noted for his affiliation with the Irish Republican Army (from 1937), and for such works as The Quare Fellow (1956), The Hostage (a song and dance farce set in a brothel, 1958), Brendan Behan?s Island: an Irish Sketch-Book (1962) and his autobiographical Borstal Boy (1958)]

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE

 

For the benefit of those of you who wish to avoid Obi-Wan's lightsaber at 12:45 PM (Hi, Vesselin!), he generally makes his appearance a few seconds after that time according to This Clock

That's great Gladiator, how about John Cleese (MontyP of course) doing the Belgian to English translation at the tobacconist.

anything can happen in scam week, but I still watch the charts. Might catch them trying to pull a sneeky. For Bontchev, I think that would mean an unnatual act.....

or something like that..

HAL settles asbestos claims for $2.75B in cash and 59m shares of stock. Positive for the market, but I think the whole division cost less than $1B when they bought it.

Sox hit the bottom @ 300 and flatlined, while everything else started a little bounce. Cannot recall ever seeing anything like it. Then again MU hasn't seen a price like this for a very very long time.

Meta, 1355.55 is 100% Fibo retracement support now, after the bounce - but it wasn't any meaningful Fibo level before the bounce, so it couldn't have caused it. Maybe they just took her 5 points below the 50-dma to collect some stops.

 

Regards,

Vesselin
