By Popular Demand - Your 100 Greatest Corner Gas Moments - Pt 2

Welcome back to Ilfracombe Municiple Village Hall and Lido! We are here celebrating the 100 greatest Corner Gas moments as voted for by people all around the world who had nothing better to do! All the guests are re-seated now. I would like to confirm to you all that the fire has been put out. If next year the Academy could choose someone other than Bob to man the complementary BBQ. I have warned you before what happens before his medication kicks in. Right, with no further ado, no dilly dallying, let's get straight on with the count down after this message from our sponsor.


Have you ever had this problem. You've gone out for the evening, to enjoy a quiet drink with friends, things are going well, the fine dining is top rate and the company even better. Just as the matre de is serving the after dinner mints to accompany the fresh roast coffee your date turns and whispers in your ear seductively "You forgot to put your pants on again."

Well what are the chances! That explains why you kept dropping the car keys on the ground every time you tried to put them in your pocket!

Never fear CGFC Industries has the answer to your sartorial mishap. Our Emergency Trouser Vending Machines(TM) have been installed in bathrooms across the country. Insert just three dollars and select from your choice of denim, corduroy or linen! There will be a queue, our pants are going fast, so be sure to check our machines as soon as you realize your knees are colder than they should be.

Please be aware that if you find you have been vended a pair of pants with only one leg and are all rubbery, you've put your money in the wrong machine.

Wanda: You have to save up to by linguini. You can't afford that magazine...I should have said magazini. Linguini then magazini. Oh, that would have been great! Could we do it again?

Be careful what you say about the Corner Gas Guzzlers!

Wes: I didn't call you a...

Paul: Earlier, he called you a bunch of useless ragtags..

Hank: Just stay out of this Paul! You just want us to bet so we'll buy more beer and what not at
           your place

Paul: Well, duh!

Hank: Ragtag? I don't think I like the sound of that

Brent: Sticks and stones. Hank, they are just words

Paul: He also called you mamby-pambies
Brent: oh, someone wants their teeth kicked in

(Wes just looks confused)
