Serious request - can the "getlost" emoticon :getlost: be removed or at least restricted to Bardak? It represents an obscene gesture, and is extremely childish.

Froggy,

An inappropriate reponse for this forum. Funny, cynical and best displayed in Bardak. Proof once again that the moderators can't be everywhere and see everything.

Froggy,

Did you notice that the request was by a Brit, who is clearly more reserved than you, you wild and crazy Frenchman!?! You are young, free spirited and full of piss and vinegar, as the Americans say, and so have a much more elastic viewpoint of what contitutes correct behavior (not politically correct behavior).

Froggy,

Well, if you think this Brit is just making a joke of it, then you are right, of course. John Clease was an enormously funny actor and even popular in the U.S., so perhaps you are right that this is just a spoof.

Froggy,

My use of the past tense here suggests only that we haven't seen John Cleese in a movie in the U.S. for some time. What is his latest film?

i think that the list of movies with cleese in them that kak posted was actually in reply to your question.

i.e.

# Around the World in 80 Days (2004) .... Grizzled Sergeant

Froggy and Polly,

Thanks, I did not realized he had been in so many movies. I guess I will have to stop watching "Gone with the Wind," "Casablanca" and "Sands of Iwo Jima" and look for newer movies.
