Mine is: How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat!?

 

Excellent one! I'm proud to have recognized those lyrics XD

I have started using a new test phrase and I really like it. I hope you folks like it too.

 

"Listen! We have heard tales sung of the Spear-Danes,

the glory of their War-Kings in days gone by,

how princely nobles performed heroes deeds!"


No other instrument can inspire so much, yet request so little from it's wielder.

My test phrase;

 

"This is a test.  This is only a test.  Should this have been a real emergency you would have been instructed to bend over backwards and kiss your @$$ goodbye."

 

Namaste,

Dalimar

you load sixteen tons

what do you get

another day older and deeper in debt

Saint Peter don't you call me..cause I can't go

I owe my soul to the company store..I was born one

mornin' it was drizzlin' rain..

both fightin' and trouble are my middle name........

If you see me comin' better step aside..

A lot of men didn't.................................................

Yesterday, upon the stair

I met a man who wasn't there.

He wasn't there again today,

I wish, I wish he'd go away...

And hear your laughter come and go
Is greater joy than all the gods
