THE DISTORTED FINAL MESSAGE

It is sometimes noticed that the comment thread at the beginning of a post is some what unclear at the end or bears little relativity to the post and it is sometimes meaningless.
Have you ever been the recipient of a verbal message which has been passed along to you by several people? more than likely you might say. So here is an opportunity to relate any strange message you may have received in the past.
Here is one to get you started.

A Frontline Senior Officer say's to soldier, "Pass this message verbally through the trenches to Head Quarters"
"Send Reinforcements, We are going to Advance".
Finally the message is received at Head Quarters,and to the astonishment of the General it read,
SEND THREE SHILLINGS AND FOURPENCE WE ARE GOING TO A DANCE.

Sounds Frightfully British, What say you old chappie?

Also sounds like the final message was a heck of a lot more productive for everyone....

That reminds me of the telephone game we used to play at camp - where everyone sits in a big circle and one person starts a message by whispering it to the next person. By the time the message has gone around, it gets pretty convoluted (especially with more people).

Hmm...
Maybe the French all those times never meant to surrender and just had their messages screwed up. ;)

Notta - We used to play that too.

Vest - Congrads! :)

Congrats on your 8th grandbaby! I love that name Charlotte. All the old names are making a comeback and I couldn't be more delighted. I'm sick of all the new, misspelled names...

Vest said...

Sadie Lou. Thank you for calling nice lady. The little girl in Narnia is the spitting image of our eight year old granddaughter.
Our 12 aand ten year olds kept on saying hey pops that is Aleisha in the movie.

The Zombieslayer said...

The little girl in Narnia was very cute. Her charm definitely added to the movie. Maybe your granddaughter needs to get into acting?

Vest said...

ZOM, The problem is she is a gentile,if you get my drift.
At least she would not need a nose job. Actually I discussed it with Dave my izzy friend, who said if it came to the crunch he would adopt her temporarily.
