    yeah I don't think 'tard' in the UK means quite the same as it does in the US . . . it's obviously a play on 'birthday card'

    but still . . . bad move :P

    Possibly. I was under the impression from discussing this with one of the (American) Mods around here that (re)tard is more of an insult here than in the States.

    I'd just chalk it up to the copy editor missing the spelling of TARDIS and yes, having a play on card and thinking it's clever.

    Given that Chard is in Deepest Darkest Cider country and it's most famous export is Blobby World, I wouldn't be too surprised if it was intended.

    ^I'd never seen it before I caught it the other day... I wonder if it's (relatively) new or as old as the films.


    If you know European politicians this one might be somewhat funny too:

    This is about the fourth iteration of this thread as far as I recall.

    As per usual, this sequel doesn't really measure up to the original ;)

    ^In the beginning it was all about the thread bombs -And we'd bomb the thread every time someone got it wrong. That was fun!

    These days it's just about the funny images and ancient memes.

    Speaking of...
