I have never been more confused by a BB thread. Every sentence I read just confuses me more.

I'd imagine the cows in Alaska are quite often frozen, mmm.

Depends on where in Alaska they are. If they're down in the panhandle, it won't be that much colder than Glasgow. However, if they're way up in Prudhoe Bay, they're going to be quite cold.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Cows being frozen isn't necessarily a bad thing. Were do you think ice cream comes from?

Cows are top tier animals. I simply love to see them in their fields.

as lrmm said, Bring them all to Australia, put them on a farm. They'll learn quickly that they're the top of the food chain!

 

Also, an announcment: our campaign is now #AppleHoley2020 as Ms Apple will be the president. 

And, I have changed my views on calculus - I am now neutral, after listening to the views of the voters!

^ Speaking of US Presidential Elections, I'm working on my campaign for 2036.

I'm willing to be adopted by any US Biblers so I could somehow manage to become a US citizen. I'm friendly, helpful, house-broken and I only need to be walked once a day. 

My policies include:

-Low-cost or preferably free third-level education across the board.

-Wider pavements

-A free, limited supply of alcohol for everyone over 18 (I'll lower the drinking age).

 

Don't I sound great?

If you pledge your vote now I'll also throw in some acres of land in Texas, Missouri or Iowa, your choice.

  

@AppleScruffJunior Have these policies changed in anyway?

I can proudly proclaim to you, @Starr Shine? , that the policies of the campaign have not changed. There will also be a preference towards American alcohol but as an homage to our roots Australian wine and Irish stout and whiskey will also be available.

 

For a limited time only, we're also offering timeshares in Hawaii- come and get 'em!

So your views will sway based entirely on the popular vote? Will this be the same for all issues, whatever is seen to get the public onside is where you stand?

On behalf of my running mate, I wish to reiterate that our policies are not swayed by the public opinion in any way and are entirely based on facts and logic.

 

Is that the answer you wanted to hear? Oh please tell me it is!!

We had a debate and Holey agreed that his view was perhaps better expressed by the word "neutral."

An open-minded politician is a rare and lovely thing. Vote for #AppleHoley2020!

Miss AppleScruff and Sir Holey, may I know if you will make cake the official forum food? Cake supremacy is an important right to myself. I would also like to know if you would be so kind as to include a law persecuting criminals that dare promote the US version of "Revolver " over the UK version for crimes against humanity.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I am deeply saddened that it could be suggested that we may not consider doing so! Cake will be our official forum food and if we win the presidency we will be replacing the background of Beatles album collages with a giant picture of a cake. Probably a chocolate one. With icing.

Also our standpoint on US vs UK albums is UK all the way (though MMT makes a good argument...)
