I just peeled three pototoes for dinner. Very well, I might add, though it did take me a while.
I'm last on zero points, even though the people directly above me are on minus points. To be fair, I'd prefer if either Pol Pot or Jade Goody were running this competition.
do sweet potatoes count?
I'm not going to peel any potatos. I'm actually quite happy being in a league of my own
i could be the dong of the forum. that has got to be a bit lower?
i see. you are a fair league chairmen noodle. does removing frozen oven chips from their bag and placing them on a baking tray count as peeling potatoes? i would have got a load of points earlier if that is the case.
Why have I been relegated again?
you got a 30 point deduction for a combination of going into administration and allegations of match fixing and bribery.
No, that's minus however many chips you placed on the tray. Unlucky with that
For finishing bottom of your league
I actually peeled 6 potatoes. Mickeyredlad takes a photo of potatoes and right away he is in the lead. Bloody cheaters
Is your computer screen upside down Babs?
I just ate a potato. It wasn't peeled though. Actually, it wasn't a potato, it was a hamburger. I pretended it was a peeled potato if that counts for anything though.
(see Brad, that's how it's done)
No, my computer screen is not upside down. But due to the nature of my work i.e. my boss expects some production each day, I may have missed a key element in this thread due to lack of attention. If so, I apologize. That has nothing to do with my present screen positioning. Which may or may not be conventional.
I've changed my mind, I want to be in the same league as Babs. Sort it out noodle.
You're second, behind me. I'm winning
You should have thought of that before you went and got yourself relegated twice in a row
noodles: be advised mehro is now a member of my inner circle, having dined with me. I believe he is entitled to every consideration as such.
Rules are rules Babs
My hands are tied
Can I still join this? I'm good at peeling potatoes. And I don't like chess.
I advise you not to. Noodle is a tyrant. He's running this league like a slave ship.
Right i think i've cracked this!
just back from a long night at the local chippy, i kindly asked if they'd let me spend the night in there peeling their potatoes (they're old fashioned).
They kindly allowed me and now 243 carefully peeled and slice potatoes later i have two thirds of my left index finger missing however i believe i am now chief potato peeler
Mehro just told me that he sorted out the spuds of all the men in the army
surely that counts?
You certainly can.
This has turned out to be disturbingly popular
Not as popular as the chess thread though
Know your place Noodle
So how do I rig this then? I need to win.
It's quickly catching up.
You'll have to win fair and square, by peeling the most potatoes. I'm currently in the lead with 0. Babs is in second place with 6
I just peeled off a plaster, one point please.
this idea is intresting, i am not that good at peeling but would like to participate anyway cos i think chess is for gayers
Updated Potato Peeling League standings
Barbara Charles 6
Count Duckula 3
Dr Dwayne Canada
mehro - ILL
im top of the league. result. i can just hear the fans chanting my name. “rimaldo is a anchor" is how i believe the chant goes. i have always found it most perplexing as i live no where near the sea or any ships. i shall look forward to playing with mehro and/or smashed soon.
I seriously doubt the validity of these claims. Cheat.
He's on minus 251, because he admitted to accidentally chopping off several of his fingers whilst peeling the potatoes, which obviously suggests that he wasn't very good at peeling them to begin with, and is now even worse
you my friend only need to vist my local chinese chippy
i spent all night in there last night and have the cuts, bruises and stretch marks to prove it!
If you wish we can arrange for official judification (i don't know if i've just made up that word up!)
Incidentally, if anyone's wondering why I'm still top of the league, despite Babs and Count Duckula having higher totals, this is because all succesfully peeled potatoes take 3-5 working days to be cleared by the judges as succesful. Rules state that no one can occupy top spot in the league, if doing so is based on potatoes which are, as yet uncleared.
Ahh its -251. Looks like I need judification as well jgraham, seeing as though Im on -7 despite peeling 7 perfectly symmetrical smooth potatoes. We are fighting a losing battle my friend, evidenced by noodlehair being top of the league with 0!
i agree keyeser. case and point is noodle relegating me two divisions from being third place in the top division as he was threatened by the way i could open a bag of oven chips and spread them evenly on a baking tray.
If this league wasn't all I had in my life, I'd withdraw from this travesty of a league over my shoddy treatment at the hands of Noodledictator.
Hold on a minute, -1?
I demand an inquiry; does noodle even have the necessary qualifications to collate a potato peeling league table of such magnitude? It seems to me that he is simply abusing his powers in order to fashion an unlikely win for himself, given his atrocious potato peeling action.
im going back to my beating off league.
