    Cool English Stuff

    Hi sick people...

    I just thought about opening a new topic here...

    And so here Iam...

    I thought that this is going to be a thread for everthing that is your favourite englisch stuff...

    Like english poems, jokes, songtitles, recipes, quotes, dialoges from series, links to songs, commercials, videos... doesn´t matter what it is as long as you like it for a particular reason...

    I gonna start with my favourite english poem... the author is unknown...

    Tibbits

    Once upon a time
    when no one was old
    there existed a land
    (or so I´ve been told)
    a land like no other
    with fruit on all trees
    with no locks on the doors
    for no one had keys
    where rainbows and sunshine
    was always the weather
    and people were friends
    and friends stood together
    where kittens could talk
    and mountains could sing
    and if you just closed your eyes
    you might find yourselv king
    no laws on this land
    for who needed rules
    you lived right next door
    so you shared all your tools
    you worked very hard
    but laughed most of the time
    in most stories you told
    you attempted to rhyme
    rich people were rare
    but poor no around
    and sadbess was lost
    and happy was found
    this land was called Tibbits
    but no oe was really sure why
    and it still would be there
    if no one learnd how to lie...
    oh... I forgot just one thing
    as I was talking before
    a simple mistake
    I would likely make more
    One law did exist
    but they only had one
    never got in the way
    or prevented much fun
    but nevertheless there was a big sign
    that stood ninty feet high
    and was carved out of pine
    it stood to ensure
    that all people should know
    that one law would pretect
    and conquer each foe
    the law was quite simple
    and written in red
    it stood in the centre
    and here´s what it said:
    From the day that you´re born
    till the day that you die
    the only law here
    is never to lie!
    For lies are the ruins of wonderful man
    if you do it just once
    you´ll do it again
    little lies hurt
    but larger lies brake
    so let´s end it right here for all peoples sake
    and watch your live will be rich
    and happy you´ll be
    with gifts from each other and wonders to see...

    I hope you like that topic... have fun...

    RE: English Stuff...

    Good idea! So I post something by myself:

    Suddenly One Day I'll Leave You But For Good Reason

    Isn't it easy to look behind you
    Craping points out of your history
    Searching for marks for your funeral

    Isn't it easy to keep a safe position
    Staying on and on for same condition
    Leaving your truly interests deep in
    All your company says you're freakin'
    And everyone asked you why

    Why will you do that?
    Why don't you stay?
    Why do you leave us anyway?
    Why does it come so fast?
    And one more question at last
    Will you be happy one day?

    But you're not freakin'
    You know what you want
    As much as those who staying
    And with slightly smile between your tongue
    Your answer isn't any wrong

    All in all it's all about to laugh
    I clap in my hands searching for the half
    Of my hidden existence
    Now it's my turn, I am on the run
    Life isn't sad, it's all about fun

    Isn't it easy to follow the flood
    Swimming with all the fish downstream
    Ignoring all of your furtive dream

    Too often people think when they're old
    Darkness flies in their homes - it's cold
    Something important they're missing
    But that's not the point to say
    By sitting down in chair - you're grey
    The potential of the sun to shine doesn't exist
    Just walk the path towards the light
    And what you've said is truly right

    All in all it's all about to laugh
    Clap in your hands searching for the half
    Of your hidden existence
    Now it's your turn, you are on the run
    Life isn't sad, it's all about fun

    So well, it's gone, my work is done
    I'll see you, now I'm on the run.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    and that's for sure my favourite song :

    Blue is the Colour

    Blue is the colour, football is the game
    We're all together and winning is our aim
    So cheer us on through the sun and rain
    'Cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name.

    Here at the Bridge, whether rain or fine
    We can shine all the time
    Home or away, come and see us play
    You're welcome any day

    Blue is the colour, football is the game
    We're all together and winning is our aim
    So cheer us on through the sun and rain
    'Cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name

    Come to the Shed and we'll welcome you
    Wear your blue and see us through
    Sing loud and clear until the game is done
    Sing Chelsea everyone

    Blue is the colour, football is the game
    We're all together and winning is our aim
    So cheer us on through the sun and rain
    'Cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name.

    Blue is the colour, football is the game
    We're all together and winning is our aim
    So cheer us on through the sun and rain
    'Cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name.


    Blue is the Colour is a football song associated with Chelsea Football Club. It was released in 1972 for the club's appearance in the League Cup final of that year and performed by the squad. It was issued on the Penny Farthing Records label and reached number 5 in the charts in March of that year. It has become one of the most well-known English football songs.
    Singing squad members include: Tommy Baldwin, Peter Bonetti, Charlie Cooke, John Dempsey, Ron Harris, Marvin Hinton, John Hollins, Peter Houseman, Alan Hudson, Steve Kember, Eddie McCreadie, Paddy Mulligan, Peter Osgood and David Webb.

    So, just a short one, a limmerick[are those written that way?!], we had a teacher, at first only in about 5 lessons, when another teacher was ill, and he taught it to us and I learned it perfectly as we had him in French for one year^^
    And the year after I had him in English... so He was really weird, some pupils collected some stuff said by him

    There was a young lady from Riga;
    Who rode with a smile on a tiger;
    They returned from the ride;
    With the lady inside;
    And the smile on the face of the tiger;


    @´Hugh: I really like your poem!!

    Unfortunate Coincidence

    By the time you swear you're his,
    Shivering and sighing
    And he vows his passion is
    Infinite, undying -
    Lady, make a note of this:
    One of you is lying.
    Dorothy Parker (1893-1967)

    This poem is taken from my English book. Our topic had been "love" so the other poems are sad or trashy but this one is really good...

    this is my favourite poem:

    'if' by rudyard kipling

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,
    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breath a word about your loss;
    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,
    And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

    Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

    Nice wit - and here is my favourite joke:

    A man walks into a bar with a small dog. The bartender shakes his head and says, "Sorry, sir, you can't bring a dog in here."
    The man says, "You don't understand. This is a talking dog."
    The bartender says, "Oh, sure he is. Please leave."
    "I'll ask him some questions, and you'll see."
    "Okay. I'll give you about a minute."
    The man turns to the dog and asks, "What's on the top of the house?"
    "Roof."
    "What's a bad place to be on the golf course?"
    "Ruff."
    "Who's the greatest baseball player in history?"
    "Ruth."
    The bartender says, "You must think I'm some kind of dummy. Get out of here."
    The man and the dog exit. In the street, the dog turns to the man and says, "Do you think I should have said Ted Williams?"


    EDIT: It's out of Winfried Ulrich, English Jokes and Puns, Stuttgart 2006 who want's to read more funny stuff

    Very well... I think I lost my toung in the mid of the first sentence...


    Here is something pretty cool...

    I BORN, I BLACK
    This was written by a black guy in
    Texas...

    When I born, I BLACK.
    When I grow up, I black.
    When I go in sun, I black.
    when I cold, I black.
    When I scared, I black.
    When I sick, I black.
    And when I die, I still BLACK!

    You WHITE FOLKS.....
    When you born, you pink.
    When you grow up, you white.
    When you go in sun, you red.
    When you cold, you blue.
    When you scared, you yellow.
    When you sick, you green.
    When you bruised, you purple.
    And when you die, you gray
    So who you callin' COLORED

    When I scared, I black.
    When I sick, I black.
    And when I die, I still BLACK!

    You WHITE FOLKS.....
    When you born, you pink.
    When you grow up, you white.
    When you go in sun, you red.
    When you cold, you blue.
    When you scared, you yellow.
    When you sick, you green.
    When you bruised, you purple.
    And when you die, you gray
    So who you callin' COLORED
