WALLACE & GROMIT CHAT » TOP BUN
So, Top Bun is a play on the title of that Tom Cruise film Top Gun.
The song in Top Gun was "Take My Breath Away"...so, will our favourite bakers and confectioners-to-be
( & ) have an ice cream van-type jingle that goes: Take my BREAD awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy!!!" as part of their dough to door delivery? In Cob We Crust...
josephine thats a great idea you should of posted it in the production video blog bit
well said conty
Thanks, Conty and Jordan! Like you, I love sharing thoughts and ideas on the forum with genuine and equally enthusiastic & fans. I'm heartened by the feedback - whether it is positive or whether it makes tumbleweed whoosh across the windy, barren landscape. P'raps I should have done what you have advised, Conty - it didn't occur to me.
Have a Happy New Year and keep up the grand work!
happy new year to you too josephine
How did I miss this thread? Thanks to Cybergurl, this thread has gotten new life.
Fantastic idea, sock-eye. Somehow, when I see Top Bun, I think of a Head Rabbit, leader of the group type. Top ?
This is off topic, but your MONDEGREEN idea reminds me of a local joke that goes: What do you call a lady with a stuffy head cold? Chicken nut bread (Translate: "She cannot breathe" - say it without breathing through your nostrils, as if you had a cold.) teehee
Why, Cybergurl?! It's not like you've really helped at all.
A Head Rabbit, squigly! Cracking idea! A top BUNNY ! A delinquent rabbit would be Thugs Bunny...a rock and roll rabbit would be jive bunny...a rabbit with severe sunstroke would be a hot cross bunny ... a comedy rabbit would be bunny ha-ha ... the possiblilities are endless...
I was thinking about what the Almighty Aards might do with ... he could be a 1970's detective like Sam Tyler in Life On Mars. Something goes terribly wrong with 's Mind Manipulation Machine, gets transported back to 1970's New York and he meets up with Starsky and Huggy Were Rabbit (as opposed to Huggy Bear), the copper's nark/grass. A remake of Starsky and , perchance?
Oh,Josie,you are such a kidder,not much exiting going on for me,so I haven't got much to say about anything. Anything new with you?
hahaha...I was wondering where you were leading to with that flashback to the 70s. Very clever (almost typed cleaver but that wouldn't be good).
How about, on a rabbit's calendar, everyday would be bunday. Never on a Sunday, a day, a Tuesday....
It's pancake Tuesday! I have just finished eating my pandake with chocolate sauce. Hmmm.
Now it is my turn to say tha YOU are lucky! All our pancake suppers were canceled!
Never mind, Fish! There's always next year, chuck!
Cleaver? Oh, yes! Some baddie runs through the mean streets of Manhattan after with a meat cleaver and starsky traps him in his wooly cardigan!
Good one, Fish!

Oh, the Mammas and Pappas could sing a rabbit song...
No, not Bright Eyes!
so good to meeeee. la laaaaa la la-la la....
A bunny rabbit calendar might go from 12 months to 122 months...if you know what I mean! Buns all the way...
A panda-cake, Mark the Shark?! Either your local bakers or your mum's very clever with the food colouring on those pancakes/pandacakes...especially with chocolate sauce....
Dribble, dribble, dribble!
Panda-cake...eats shoots and leaves. (munch, ka-pow, swoosh)
What happened, Fish!?!
You mean about the pancake suppers, Mark the shark? We got so much snow that every church within an 100 mile radius canceled their pancake suppers! I always look forward to the Shrove Tuesday activities.
Oh, crud for you, eh!
didnt you make your own fish? not fish pancakes!!!! just didnt you make your own? ggeeesss fish pancakes yuk what a thought!!!!
My grandmother used to put a tuna and cream sauce concoction on waffles for dinner. I never gagged, but it was not exactly my favorite. She was lots of fun and a wonderful cook, and I never complained out loud.
I love pandcakes!
you did it again, Mark. As Josephine asked, "A PANDA-CAKE"???? 8} harhar!!! (pancakes doesn't have a "d" in it)
Squigly, people who can only think of one way to spell a word are lacking in imagination! Besides, for all we know, every Scottish lad dwelling in Mark the shark's space/time continuum spells pandcakes that way due to local custom and pronounciation!
Thanks Fish. I am (well people say I am, including my teachers) the top speller in my class but I've never been able to spell pandcakes!!! ARGH!!
PANDCAKES!!!! NOOOOOO! I DID IT AGAIN! I mean pancakes!!!
I thought it was cute the first time Markie Sharkie wrote it. Had the imagination going on about black and white cakes with huge eyes and bamboo shoots and leaves sticking out of its mouth. It's after the second time I realized that's how he spells it! Got a good chuckle!!!
thats funni well done! yes you should post it to the video blog. It's a cracking idea!
Hehehe! Good one Squigly!
I agree, anti-pesto! Mark The Shark - you are on to a winner there with that "happy mistake" !
Many great things have happened because of a mistake - remember, to err is human!
...even for a Shark! Tee Hee!
Yes, a happy mistake!
Hi Mark, Josephine, squigly, ant-pesto and Cinders! I was feeling out of sorts! But then as I thought about panda cakes and a happy mistake, the sorts returned to me! I am revived - sort-wise, that is! Thank you all!!! In closing I'd just like to say.....
I'm baaaccckkkk...again. What did I miss?
Fish, you were out of sorts? I hear that has a Sort-O-Matic machine that puts you right back into sorts. Give it a spin, shall we? SSSSSWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOLLLLLLPPP-BBBBZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz...... Hey, you're back!!!!!
Sock-eye, I understand it also sorts out all the mismatched socks. Maybe you'll find the odd sock for your other eye, perhaps?
Ready for a swim, anybody? SSSPPPPLLLLLOOOOOOOSSSSHHHHHH!!!
Thank goodness Wallace invented the sort-O-matic! When one is out of sorts, how DOES one sort themselves out??? Having no sorts, it is quite impossible!
But here I am, a living testomony to the inventive genius of our dear friend
Here I am! HEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Here I am! In the water!
Fish - sorry to hear you have been out of sorts. I hope you are OK!
Have a liquorice Allsort! AND a mintball!
That way, when you're out of sorts you will have plenty to choose from!
's sort-o-matic has patent pending. Press a button and your desired sort will descend to the slot. There!
Sock Eye Salmon
PS: My mum is on the mintballs to soothe her sore throat... she's on the waiting list for her new supply of sorts...
fish, didnt you say you where having your sister to stay with you and she was poorly with shingles? i hope thats not what you had!!!!! glad to hear your feeling better now though
I LOVE liquorice all sort! Brilliant idea!
I don't have a sister - with or without shingles. But I do have a dear friend who is just getting over them - they are no fun at ALL!
Anyhow, thanks for asking. I am quite well now that I've got a solution to my sort problem!
Glad to hear you're no longer short on sorts, Fish.
cinders, my sister is the one who's down with the shingles and she's arriving tomorrow! her doctor told her that she isn't contagious. hope he's right or else there'll be a plane full of people getting it!
oooppps sorry guys got it mixed up!!!! anyway im glad your back to sorts fish!!!!!
squigly, hope your sister enjoys her stay with you, lots of catching up and shopping!!!!! i would of loved to have had a sister
She's three years older so she can get bossy at times. But she's only here for about 3 days...flies back to California on Monday. She's flying in because my dad turns 90(!!) this month and we're throwing a dinner for him on Sunday, about 30 people. Not sure if there'll be time for shopping. cinders, did you have any brothers? Sounds like your present household is all males.
i am the only girl!!! i have 9 nephews, and 1 brother, but hes dead cool, but i have lots of shopping friends and girlie times so im ok, thats why i said that i wanted a girl dog!!!!!another female in the house, but thats not really worked, cause shes so in love with my husband, she cant leave him alone for one minute and shes bigger than me so i get pushed out quite alot!!!!but i like being the only girl in some ways, everyones always made me feel special
squigly happy bithday to your dad, isnt he doing well!!!!! my grandad lived untill he was 97 so you may have many more precious times yet with your dad, enjoy every moment
I've got a three-years older sister. And she is quite annoying sometimes. Although mostly we get along.
Hi cinders and MTS. Spent the last 3 days preparing party things, then recuperating from preparing the party things (today was a holiday here - some dead president's birthday).
cinders, 9 nephews? all your brother's boys? You weren't kidding about being the only girl! haha...I think your dog wants to be the only female in the house! well, you sound like a pretty cool mom so it's no wonder you get the special treatment!
Thanks for the birthday wishes for my dad. Everyone says he looks pretty good for 90. I think he enjoyed himself. I created a game to give away the table decorations. I found old photos and surfed the internet for pictures of things and activities that he enjoyed doing throughout his life then printed them up on these little cards with captions. After the guests had a chance to look at all the cards, everyone picked one. Whoever had the card that matched the ones my dad picked out of a bag, won the table decoration. My dad was touched by the old photos and pictures. My sister and I pulled off this dinner without him knowing about it. I'm pretty sure he enjoyed himself being surrounded by family.
Sharkie, it's a good thing that you and your sister get along for the most part. Makes it so much easier when you live under the same roof. Doesn't sound like she's interested in stop motion and animation like you. Do you share any similar interests with her?
i am back! sorry i was doing a bit of chroma key with Wallace & Gromit. hi fish!
Hi anti-pesto. What's chroma key?
hi squigly sounds like you had a good time at your dinner party, and mum is cool but sometimes its not good when your mates fancy her!! ssshhhiishhh!!! talking of brothers and sisters my brother was playing with my set this afternoon and made his first animation, not bad either!!! gonna have to keep my eye on him!!!!
