    WE are going to miss our foil.

    Who can be "Bobbys" until Bobbys comes back?
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    We just need a thread devoid of anything of any consequence whatever, that should fill the gap nicely……………….

    Pretend you're Trump's kid, say the first response that pops into your head,
    and ignore spell check.
    Anyone can do it.

    It could be interesting to try, as a form of high satire. But I think it would be too much work.

    I wonder that a "banned" forumite can still sign into the Forum.
    Not, mind you, "if", but can.
    Am I mistaken that this should not be possible?

    Bobbys is banned? Too bad.

    I usually disagree with his political positions but I can’t help but like him, and wish him well.

    "Row vs Wade" ?

    Sorry. Too easy, a spoof on Bobby's spelling.

    Logistically speaking, having been banned several times myself, I know it's possible to view the WBF when you've been banned. AFIK, it's not possible to log in, and therefore not possible to post. Seems like there have been instances of banned folks creating a new screen name/persona and successfully signing up as someone else. I would speculate that Scot could, if he was alerted, check if that new persona was logging in from the same computer as a banned person had used. IIRC, Lefty tried to get around that by signing in under Carter's name. Or that was the accusation. Which, if memory serves, only got both of them banned.

    Browsing through a second hand shop today I thought of bobbys when I came upon an old spud gun.


    But personally I'd prefer one that fired the whole potato…...

    For the first few years that I visited this forum he was indeed, a funny guy. He often made me laugh out loud and I really miss that stuff. There have been occasional flashes of it more recently. The political stuff drives him crazy, but I would enjoy seeing more of the bobbys of old.

    The only opening we need for bobbys is the one that leads to the oubliette.

    I don't know about Scotland, but there are plenty of Trump fans in England, to include the occasional MAGA hat in London (of all places). Many of the people I met on my recent trip to Europe wanted to talk to me about Trump, and most were supportive.
