AIBU to read filth into the phrase 'stubby pencil'?

'Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University' (ATBU) is a federal university of technology located in Bauchi, northern Nigeria.

Heh, I 'may' have used that phrase on purpose.

"Grim"

Everything everyone's ever touched at any time will need to be boil-washed at 90 degrees for three days solid.

Right, first link of the thread.

Loving I actually think I might have designed this house in the Sims.

I now find I accidentally unsubscribed from that thread 4000 posts ago. Dammit.

pmcblonde - 08 Mar 2018 17:02:55 (#12 of 4709)

What’s with the ceiling “features”?

Simonethebeaver - 08 Mar 2018 17:03:01 (#13 of 4709)

And I entirely share the disbelief on that thread that you could spend 500K in Kettering without getting a 10 bedroom palace.

KizzyK - 08 Mar 2018 17:35:03 (#14 of 4709)

Wow thats some house. Jesus.

I like this comment:

It looks like a flat-roof dive pub giving a retirement bungalow a piggyback.

VeniVidiVicious - 08 Mar 2018 18:11:45 (#16 of 4709)

Wow. I also like the gnome cemetery.

OldLefty - 08 Mar 2018 18:13:12 (#17 of 4709)

I thought coloured bathroom suites went out around 1960.

Simonethebeaver - 08 Mar 2018 18:17:10 (#18 of 4709)

Not for hipsters. They love it.

thisonehasalittlehat - 08 Mar 2018 18:18:26 (#19 of 4709)

Hipsters do not have coloured bathroom suites.

They have VW campers.

thisonehasalittlehat - 08 Mar 2018 18:19:01 (#20 of 4709)

Middle aged men with beards and a peter pan complex may have coloured bathroom suites. To disguise the tears they shed every evening while desperately clawing at their rapidly departing hair.

They ae not hipsters.
