This may take up too much resource, but how about a photo gallery?

I was thinking of something mainly UK/"UK Fencers"/"Other Board Members" specific (there are some other great general galleries out there).

try this one

A blonde walked into a gas station and said to the manager, ''I locked my keys in my car. Do you have a coat hanger or something I can stick through the window to unlock the door?''
''Why sure,'' said the manager, ''we have something that works especially well for that.''

A couple minutes later, the manager walked outside to see how the blonde was doing and he heard another voice. ''No, no! A little to the left,'' said the other blonde inside the car

A cop pulled over a car for swerving all over the road. The blonde at the wheel looked very confused and scared.
"What's going on here, ma'am?"

"Well, I was driving along when all of a sudden there was a tree right in my path. I swerved to miss it, but there was another tree. And after that, another, and another." The cop looked inside her car and sighed.

"Ma'am. That's your air freshener."

how about,

The highway patrolman sported a car driving dangerously slow on a much-traveled freeway. He pulled it over and found the driver to
be a blonde with four other blonde women as passengers.

"Lady," said the officer, "your slow driving is almost as
dangerous as speeders. You need to try to keep the speed limit."

"But I always keep the speed limit," replied the blonde driving. "I was doing the speed limit when you stopped me."

The officer asked, "What do you think the limit is on this road?"

The blonde said, "I just a moment ago saw the sign, U.S.
Highway 22."

"But lady," warned the officer, "that is the highway number, not
the speed limit"

The blonde was very apologetic and, of course, no ticket was given. The officer noticed that all the passengers seemed pale and had a frightened look in their eyes. As he turned to leave the car,
wondering if his presence had been the problem, he turned again
and said to the driver, "Ma'am, are you sure all your passengers
are OK?"

"Oh, they will be in a few moments," she said, "we just turned
off Highway 120."

-13th May 2003, 21:00

-13th May 2003, 21:01

-13th May 2003, 21:03
cheers hudson. I have a source of blonde jokes, i'll pm you the url so we might be able to beat two happy hippos into submission.

for now though

A business man got on an elevator in a building. When he entered the elevator, there was a blonde already inside and she greeted him by saying, "T-G-I-F" (letters only).

He smiled at her and replied, "S-H-I-T (letters only)."

She looked at him, puzzled, and said, "T-G-I-F."

He acknowledged her remark again by answering, "S-H-I-T."

The blond was trying to be friendly, so she smiled her biggest
smile, and said as sweetly as possibly "T-G-I-F" another time.

The man smiled back to her and once again replied with a
quizzical expression, "S-H-I-T."

The blond finally decided to explain things, and this time she
said, "T-G-I-F, Thank Goodness It's Friday, get it?"

The man answered, "Sorry, Honey, It's Thursday."

-13th May 2003, 21:04

another one

One day while on patrol, a police officer pulled over a car for
speeding. He went up to the car and asked the driver to roll down
her window. The first thing he noticed, besides the nice red
sports car, was how hot the driver was! Blue eyes, blonde, the

"I've pulled you over for speeding, Ma'am. Could I see your
drivers license?"

"What's a license???" replied the blonde, instantly giving away
the fact that she was as dumb as a stump.

"It's usually in your wallet," replied the officer. After
fumbling for a few minutes, the driver managed to find it. "Now
may I see your registration?" asked the cop.

"Registration..... what's that....?" asked the blonde.

"It's usually in your glove compartment." said the cop
impatiently. After some more fumbling, she found the

"I'll be back in a minute." said the cop and walked back to his
car. The officer phoned into the dispatch to run a check on the
woman's license and registration. After a few moments, the
dispatcher came back, "Ummm... is this woman driving a red sports

"Yes." replied the officer

"Is she a drop dead gorgeous blonde?" asked the dispatcher

"Uh... yes." replied the cop.

"Here's what you do." said the dispatcher. "Give her the stuff
back, and drop your pants."

"What!!? I can't do that. Its... inappropriate." exclaimed the

"Trust me. Just do it." said the dispatcher.

So the cop goes back to the car, gives back the license and
registration and drops his pants, just as the dispatcher said.

The blonde looks down and sighs..... "Ohh no... not another

how about,

Three women escaped from prison. One was a redhead, one a
brunette, and one a blonde.

They ran for miles until they came upon an old barn where they
decided to hide in the hayloft and rest. When they climbed up,
they found three large gunnysacks and decided to climb into them
for camouflage.

About an hour later the sheriff and his deputy came into the
barn. The sheriff told his deputy to go up and check out the
hayloft. When he got up there the sheriff asked him what he saw
and the deputy yelled back, "Just three gunnysacks."

The sheriff told him to find out what was in them, so the deputy
kicked the first sack, which had the redhead in it. She went,
"Bow-wow", so the deputy told the sheriff there was a dog in it.

Then he kicked the sack with the brunette in it. She went,
"Meow", so the deputy told the sheriff there was a cat in it.

Then he kicked the one with the blonde in it, and there was no
sound at all. So he kicked it again, and finally the blonde
said, "Potatoes."

Would we ever gang up on you Esther???

or maybe's,

A blonde went to a flight school, insisting she wanted to learn
to fly that day. As all the planes were currently in use, the
owner agreed to instruct her on how to pilot the helicopter solo
by radio.

He took her out, showed her how to start it and gave her the
basics and sent her on her way.

After she climbed 1000 feet, she radioed in. "I'm doing great! I
love it! The view is so beautiful, and I'm starting to get the
hang of this."

After 2000 feet, she radioed again, saying how easy it was
becoming to fly. The instructor watched her climb over 3000 feet,
and was beginning to worry that she hadn't radioed in.

A few minutes later, he watched in horror as she crashed about
half a mile away. He ran over and pulled her from the wreckage.

When he asked what happened, she said, "I don't know! Everything
was going fine, but as I got higher, I was starting to get cold.
I can't remember anything after I turned off the big fan."

Comments and suggestions descending into something else again?

Boo boo,

Your original idea isn't bad have you got a link you could give me to an existing gallery.

You can already add pictures to your posts but they can't be more than 102000 bytes.
It would be fairly simple to increace this file size slightly and make a forum called gallerty with some subdivisions. The problem would be that theif the file size allowed was too large it would quickly fill up our domain.

Also if people submit photos that aren't that great then it would be very easy to end up upsetting someone.

There is a gallery in the download section of the LP site You can submit photos as large as you like to that via e mail but I agree that a gallery where you could easily post your own photos would be good.

Online galleries I have seen are:
- http://fechten.de/deu/modules.php?op=modload&name=My_eGallery&file=index
- http://www.columbusfencing.org/slillard/ (a bit of a mixed bag...)

Am sure that there must be other good galleries out there.


-14th May 2003, 10:30
As I say there is one at http://www.leonpaul.com/download/photos.htm
that you can submit to...

I will look into how much webspace fencing forum owns and see if it is fesable.

The problem with galleries is that it is nice if they are thumbnailed which is not something that can be done through VBulletin.

-14th May 2003, 10:45
I've already posted this elsewhere, but there are many good photos on:

Italian SchermaNet site (http://www.schermanet.it/modules.php?name=My_eGallery)

Awww, poor BooBoo!

There's a gallery on fencng101 isn't there? I seem to remember one anyway. It was thumbnailed.

The only thing to be wary of is bandwidth, this can cost a fortune if you go over the limits laid down by your host.
