That's what Mince would say. Correctly spelled, down to the colon (though the dash is superfluous, it is not incorrect).


I rest my case. Pay the dosh direct into my RBS account please, Mince.

Not unless each "No" is the end of a sentence or denotes a definite pause.

But each 'No' must be the end of a sentence because the next 'No' begins with a capital letter...

Has anyone ever seen Mince and Peter in the same room at the same time?

Okay, answer these questions...

1) Do you live in a tin with a ring-pull lid?

2) Are you hideously unattractive to women?

3) Do you secretly envy Roger, Tarquin, Diane, Peepmaster, and the other top creative people on this board?

4) Would you give your right fin to be as intelligent as everyone else on this board?

5) Do you delight in reprimanding normal people when their grammar and spelling might not be totally correct?

Yes, a thousand times yes. Well 5.
I'm dafter than I look.

Vultures answer is the tie breaking answer Malc.
The money can be sent via Roger as i don't want begging letters from all on here.

Mince, you could have set that up, arranging for some Wilfrid Brambell lookalike, and introducing him to Vulch as "Peter".

I didn't just sail up the Clyde on a banana boat, you know.

You did not expect it did you.
If a certain female from the states can get on she could collaborate Vultures story.

"collaborate" is proof enough. I'm just not that funny.

Has anyone ever seen Mince and a bird in the same room at the same time?

Peter, I think the word you are looking for is  "corroborate." 

Yes, I have seen Peter and Mince in the same room. They don't look alike. Peter is the handsome, genteel one.

Peter has seen Mince and me in the same room. Mince and I are very obviously not the same person.  I hope that clears up any confusion that I am Mince in disguise.  I was, however, Calypso.
