cocked hats

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

As a further inticement to anyone reading this who would like to show up, there will be free goodies of the 'only spoken of in hushed voices' Sisters variety for all Image

what the hell is a cocked hat?

rumour has it that you MacHeartlanders couldn't organise the proverbial, even if provided with your own brewery and project management team.

I trust you'll be quashing those rumours with actions (or at least photos) rather than words.

Andrew S, Bigsy and Naz all got off their arses to go down the pub one Saturday, so I hope we can pull in more this time, I mean, its not brain surgery is it?

the bottom line
we are not: dodgey young/old G***s with panstick and accessories
we are: regular people who enjoy a spot of nocturnal taxidermy

I thank you :notworthy:

I've always been under the impression that you didn't actually have to organise a p!ss-up in Glasgow. :lol:

E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.

Cocked Hat (A).

A hat with the brim turned, like that of a bishop, dean, etc. It is also applied to the chapeau bras, and the military full-dress hat, pointed before and behind, and rising to a point at the crown, the chapeaù à cornu. “Cock� in this phrase means to turn; cocked, turned up. 1
Knocked into a cocked hat. In the game of nine-pins, three pins were set up in the form of a triangle, and when all the pins except these three were knocked down, the set was technically said to be “knocked into a cocked hat.� Hence, utterly out of all shape or plumb. A somewhat similar phrase is “Knocked into the middle of next week.�

I stopped doing them months and months ago when it became apparent nobody needed them. Besides, there weren't anywhere near enough rare items.
There's a promo Lucretia on there this week (it may have run out) and someone sold Body Electric (though not to me sadly) for about £28.
Otherwise, nothing.
