Clearly a result of the London Pirate Demonstration – A recent statement by the UK prime minister includes the following:

The Government is clear that creationism and intelligent design are not part of the science National Curriculum programmes of study and should not be taught as science.

    “i have never played cricket It’s like baseball, right?”
    Here you go sorgo, this will explain the game (thanks again Booty :))
    Rules of Cricket:
    * You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.
    * Each man that’s in the side that’s in the field goes out and when he’s out comes in and the next man goes in until he’s out.
    * When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in.
    * When they are all out, the side that’s out comes in and the side that’s been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.
    * Sometimes, there are men still in and not out.
    * There are men called umpires who stay out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out.
    * Depending on the weather and the light, the umpires can also send everybody in, no matter if they’re in or out.
    * When both sides have been in and all the men are out (including those who are not out), then the game is finished.

    “I forget who said this but they described cricket as the only game that lasts 5 days and still ends up as a draw!”

    I have to desert you here Alchemist. If you’ve come to the point where you have to trump Englands only Ashes win in like 2 decades then Nikkiees point about Oz beating the crap out of England is well made.
    Btw, when Oz regained the Ashes, did they not do it so convincingly as to end that debate for the rest of this decade? I remember something about a 5-0 white wash.

    hahaha – yeah, I can’t see Flintoff wearing that (actually, he probably would if he was pissed).
    Did notice that the keeper was standing pretty close to the stumps and the bikini batsman was making a wild waft down to square leg that would probably be caught.
    (now, that’s sad!)

    You what Alchemist. No I didn’t notice any of that.
