    Brothers ... today is the 18th anniversary of the passing of my old man, pa trout.

    I would ask you to raise a virtual glass, for he was truly one of us ... (6 foot 2, 18 stone, massive girth, spear bald since the age of 21, could fart the intro's to many of the top 70's love songs ... you get the picture)

    To give you a measure of the man, I would like to share some of the following memories

    #1 ... pa trout, to junior trout on his rugby debut "remember son, prop's don't have to get there first, just get there the most".

    #2 ... ma trout announcing she was going back to college, to study politics and feminist studies; "we're gonna sweep the country" she says ... pa trout replies "you can start with the kitchen"

    #3 ... wedding anniversary card from pa trout to ma trout "10 years married today ... it's well for ya"

    #4 ... on hearing about Guinness Lite pa trout announced " ah... it will be good for the hairdressers to have their own beer, and leave the Harp to the wimmin"

    pa trout ... we hardly knew ye

    Truly a Trout among men, if he was still with us he would be our village elder.

    Perhaps a village ancestor, a symbolic representative through the aeons who has come to embody what BGRH is all about?

    Excellent stuff. Didn't think guiness lite *spit* was out for 18 years? Or perhaps the beer has fuddled the source.

    *raises glass*

    To Pa Trout - All things to all bald fat men.

    Must be 20 years now ... that guinness lite one is from the mists of time.

    this are a trip down memory lane. (or membry lane, as pa trout would have said) :)

    Hmmm Pa Trout seems to have been a wise old Doob???

    Did he ever say when an uncle gave you money"Aaah jaysus,you have a heart as big as a tea chest/church??"


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,015 ✭✭✭✭ trout

    i have one uncle, and he is an awful stingy miser altogether ... pa trout would say of him "he's that mean, if he was a ghost he wouldn't give you a fright".

    That's fantastic. pa trout for president!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,015 ✭✭✭✭ trout


    there was a cruel streak to pa trout also, especially if there were chips involved

    #11 ... pa trout to anyone with chips on their plate "what the eye don't see ... the heart don't long for!"

    at which point he would eat said chips ... regardless of volume, he could eat them all in milliseconds

    this behaviour only stopped when i started stabbing him with my fork around age 7 or so :p

    #12 ... pa trout to anyone moaning minnies / negative people ... to the jaundiced eye all things are yellow


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,015 ✭✭✭✭ trout


    Brothers ... pa trout appeared to me in a beer induced coma last night, and reminded me of another of his wise and pithy aphorisms...

    #13 ... pa trout on observing a lost cause or any futile action "son, remember, ye just can't polish a turd"

    That statement embodies everything we stand for. His wisdom knows no bounds.

    #14 ... pa trout to anyone with a sob story or 'poor me' expression "if you're looking for sympathy, you'll find it in the dictionary ... between sh1t and syphilis"

    that one came back to me yesterday, as I passed by the Clare Hall roundabout, to see a chap* selling newspapers. this chap has one good leg, and one that ends above the knee ... he theatrically rests the stump on the handle of his crutch, which as an attention getting device is very effective.:eek:

    * at least I think it's a chap ... could also be a lady, if you've seen this person, you'll know why I am confused.

    one from the archives, was reminded of this while watching Jet Li's Fearless over the weekend. (pa trout wasn't impressed by whipcord thin fitness fanatic martial artists, he preferred substance over style any day)

    #15 ... pa trout observing a display of martial arts ... "that's all well and good son, but i'm tellin' ye now, one good kick in the bollix is worth all the kung fu in China"

    words to live by :)

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,015 ✭✭✭✭ trout


    some more timeless wisdom from the vaults ... enjoy:)

    #16 ... pa trout, whenever he encountered the words "military intelligence" would roar out "Silence! when you speak to an officer" :rolleyes:

    #17 ... pa trout, on observing a situation of bad luck would say "remember son, some days you're the dog, and some days you're the lamppost".

    #18 ... pa trout, on observing a person sweating profusely "jayziz ... he's sweatin' like a Hutu at a Tutsi wedding!"

    #19 ... pa trout, on observing an ugly person (pronounced ug-a-ly) "Lookit yer man ... he's a face like a plate full of mortal sins".

    #20 ... pa trout, on observing a woman with a hip-swaying walk "jayziz, she's like a bag full of bowling balls".

    #21 ... pa trout, on observing someone making a supreme effort "he's shakin' like a goat sh1te-ing coke cans"
