  1. Hmmm... ... it's for your own safety Mr Mel. You know you're not allowed to play with sharp objects...
  2. Hmmm... Well for me, nothing says 'Sheffield' more than the natural beauty and ambient aromas of Blackburn Meadows...
  3. Hmmm... Well I can probably name nearly all of the characters in the Muppet Show but... ... it doesn't mean I'd want them to be representing Sheffield. Although thinking about it...
  4. Hmmm... ... I never knew Graham Norton used to be a vacuum cleaner salesman. His past experience of such beautiful lyrics is obviously the reason why he was chosen to present the Eurovision Song Contest...
  5. Hmmm... Well now you ask, there is one thing that's been bugging me quite a bit recently, and that is... ... Why are there so many letters in the English alphabet? It's obviously a worry to a lot of people on here who seem to have trouble remembering which order to put them in, and it can cause some of us a great deal of confusion when trying to deesyfer posts...
  6. Hmmm... ... Czy próbowałeś reklamować hydraulika po polsku? (Have you tried advertising for a plumber in Polish?)
  7. Hmmm... Well it looks like this thread is full of posters with the 'poor old me' Sheffield mentality... ... We can't compete with the best so why even bother making any effort? - let's just come up with any old excuse to try to convince everyone that we're happy and content with where we are. What are load of defeatist nonsense! How are you ever going to be the best if you don't try? No-one gets things handed to them on a plate. (cue witty replies) You only get better by trying (and failing) - the important thing is to always give it your best shot. Who really cares if you fail miserably as long as you gave it your best effort? You learn from your mistakes and dust yourself down and go again. If you don't even make the effort and are happy to accept second (or third, or fourth) best then you'll never make it to the top and you're a loser before you even start... (Here endeth the Monday Morning Monologue)
  8. Hmmm... ... Touché Mr Max, Touché!
  9. Hmmm... I wouldn't have thought a Mini Coupe was the ideal vehicle for transporting all those heavy gravel boards...
  10. Hmmm... ... me too! I put my wheelie-bins out for collection every week...
  11. Hmmm... ... well it's no surprise really. The truth is, a lot of the media 'luvvies' now see the Premiership as some sort of elite club, where only those with fat wallets should be allowed to be members. Of course they want riff-raff clubs like United to fail because they don't like the idea that while their favourite 'celebrity' clubs now have to spend £50m+ on a player, a team that has spent peanuts will begin the season on exactly the same number of points. It's supposed to be the best league in the world, attracting the best players. How dare a club full of 'misfits' that have been given a second chance by some down to earth northern bloke and who have got where they are through sheer hard work (and a bit of natural talent) be allowed to rub shoulders with those whose idea of 'hard work' is having to open their own cheque book...
  12. Hmmm... ... but one way is far more likely than the other!
  13. Hmmm... ... can I just ask Mr Tim, are you a recruitment manager as in a job agency or as in a personnel department? The reason I ask is that if it's a job agency then you will be getting paid for putting forward a target number of candidates to a client and so can't afford to be as selective about where those candidates have got their qualifications. The client however, in my experience, is most definitely interested where the qualifications were obtained.
  14. Hmmm... Well, anyone a tad more cynical than myself could almost be forgiven for thinking that the whole charade has been stage-managed so that both Mr Omara and his sidekick can have a nice summer break without any hassle from those nasty constituent types. I suppose we'll find out if after a few weeks, Mr Sidekick has been totally forgiven for his public resignation and reinstated in his old role on full pay...
  15. Hmmm... It's just a wild guess here but... ... reading the first post it looks to me like it was the 'Are you a plonker?' box.
