Ok i saw this on my friend su*aru's forum.

I start by naming an object. The winner gets to pick the next object.

there is a twist:
-your face (most of it) must be in the picture
-you must be taking the picture
-No photoshoping either
-If you posted the object you can not participate in that object
-Object must be realistic example: empty bottle of beer or staplier, or underwear, or underside of tv.....get what i'm saying
--------------------------------------------------------
First object:
picture of a TV remote control

Munki

Na its a toaster oven. but still a toaster.
If you say so...but in the UK that is a grill.

This could prove interesting considering the sometimes amusing differences between UK, US, and Aussie English names for things...Do you have any idea what we call a pencil eraser over here.. :-??

:cheesy:

Halcyon
19th January 2003, 01:28 PM

saab90089

Abbott 900
21st January 2003, 10:01 AM
Yep that's me.....

Er, I think Munki was questioning Halcyons, gender change in the photo on the first page...

Paco
21st January 2003, 10:02 AM
I think Munki is referring to Halcyon's first pic of the batteries- I concur....and sense a conspiracy to defraud!

Let the truth be known!

saab90089
21st January 2003, 10:05 AM
so wait is Halcyons a guy or girl?

Munki
21st January 2003, 10:06 AM

saab90089

So wait what is a SET of bathroom scales?

I have A scale, not a SET.

Abbott 900
21st January 2003, 10:12 AM
A set means 1... Just bathroom scales... English thing... :lol:

Tone_Depear
21st January 2003, 10:13 AM
If you pack your scale in a holdall/suitcase, leap on a plane, and fly here, you'll find it's turned into a set of scales, like it should be. But seeing as we're bridging the great atlantic divide, I reckon either will do. :cheesy:

saab90089
21st January 2003, 10:24 AM
here is my set of scales.

Mr. Forchielli
22nd January 2003, 12:44 PM
delorean, heres a box and tailpipe!! this has to qualify..... and just in case it does, the next item is a waffle iron

saab90089
22nd January 2003, 12:45 PM
The fishtank was done with the tank on the monitor. he called for a dipstick..........hence why paul opened his doors and hood and did the pic with him in front of the car......he is a dipstick (sorry had to say to explain :lol: )

saab90089
22nd January 2003, 12:48 PM
my votes for Mr. Forchielli

CleveSaab
22nd January 2003, 12:49 PM
O. Well, I don't think the fishtank one should qualify. 8)

(Mainly because I have an empty 55 gallon fish tank and I was going to take a picture of me in it. LOL).

Paul
22nd January 2003, 12:58 PM
....he is a dipstick (sorry had to say to explain :lol: )

Somebody had to come out with that :roll:

but seriously if you look closely I've got a saab dipstick in my hand, hence the bonnet being open on the car :)

Tone_Depear
22nd January 2003, 01:05 PM
I don't own a waffle iron, so here's the best I could manage. I'm not sure it counts though... :cry:

tom
22nd January 2003, 01:51 PM
does this count? if does, next item will be a snow tire(s).

CleveSaab
22nd January 2003, 02:05 PM
I would vote Tom's does NOT count.
I would vote that Tone's was such a fine idea, his does qualify (LMAO).

Mr. F should decide...

Mr. Forchielli
22nd January 2003, 02:11 PM
its a tough call but tone after that face and the creativity i say it goes to you just pick an new item!

Tone_Depear
22nd January 2003, 02:14 PM
Hussar! Ummm... err....

A non-SAAB piece of automotive memorabilia. :cheesy:
