When sorry isn't enough!

Joust!


As some of you may know, I recently made a remark that the good Miss Jane Turley took exception to regarding "Her Majesty's snow removal system."

(See Music Monday - The Jazz Cafe - London)

As usual, I groveled a bit and apologized profusely but to no avail. Miss Jane demanded satisfaction and I was offered a duel to settle this dispute. She was gracious enough to let me choose the style of combat and the weapons. After careful consideration -I ruled out rocket launchers and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles - I opted for a joust with very sharp lances. After we determined that Miss Jane could not straddle a horse (her determination not mine), our lawyers came up with a compromise. We would each select proxies to take part in a bicycle joust. Miss Jane selected the fellow in the hat and the feather. The other guy was my representative...... You can watch for yourself and see the outcome.



I think we're friends again!

I won, I won, I won!

That's good as that means we are definately friends again.

Otherwise, if I'd lost I would have stamped my foot and sulked for ages and ages and when Miss Jane sulks life is unbearable for everyone around her!

Hmmm... you are a worthy adversary Mr I!

Ha! Dignified and absolute, I'd say. Congrats to both of you on your refined conflict resolution skills!
 
(What movie is that from?!)

Oh no!!! Hahaha...

Oh I keep forgetting to tick these notification boxes so I've come back to see how the lovely Mr I has been coping with his defeat....

Whilst I'm here... about that second hand Penny Farthing you have for sale... I'm a little more fashionable; I hope you don't mind if I decline the offer but you know you do rather look nice upon it, especially in the plus fours....

Miss Jane,

Yes you won. Rub it in why don't you. However, it was a lucky blow!

intrepidideas said...

Footsteps, I'm not sure about dignified, but absolute indeed! I believe it's from the movie Quick Change -1990.

Miss Jane, winning clearly isn't enough for you. :) You want to ruin me with insults! You'll get yours. :) plus fours??? - you are mean!

Jane Turley said...

But I am sure you look postively delicious in them!! :))

I saw this following comment on Speedy's blog:

Someone asked me to go pee up a rope once. It was my boss, After I told him that since I was doing all of his work I should at least get half his pay! :)

And I thought, "WOW! You really ARE intrepid!" ;)

Then I came over here and saw the JOUST and thought the VERY SAME THING again! :)

The jousting was very funny! A creative way to settle the dispute. Here in West Virginy we use groundhogs on the ends of pikes whilst riding our four wheelers into the fray.
