When you're wearing all black, and you're knocking them back, that's a soiree.

If your book's full of lies and you get on Oprah twice, then you're James Frey

If he wears a dark suit and he looks pretty cute, that's a lawyer (that one's for my boyfie and any other lawyers out there...)

If he yaks until dawn while you wriggle and yawn, that's a bore, hey?

If a PM pretends with a war killing ends, that's a story

If a fat bloke is screamin' about Hirst, Lucas, Emin, that's Charles Saatchi

(I do apologise for the last one which is embarrassingly poor)

If your hair's turning grey and your nose hair's like hay then you're hoary.

Smile Re: That's Amore

Arrrggh - computer in throes of dying - has frozen and not started on approx 195 out of 200 goes in past week. It also has a nasty streak and will try and humiliate me by posting the same message six times after refusing to post it at all the previous 100 times.So hope this doesn't appear twice, have been trying to make the damn thing connect for past hour. Arrrrrrgggh gnash gnash sometimes feel just like kicking it but know would break toes and it would silently laugh.
Anyhow, this is the mail i tried to post earlier without success:
This amore game is horribly addictive!

Here are some more, many of them cringeable and requiring strange pronounciation to make the rhyme with amore!

At a charity event, she'll take 99 percent, that's Blair's Cherie.(a better rhyme if use naughty wh*** word for selling yourself to gain material goods)

Every face and inflection is copied to perfection, that's our Rory.

12 grim people from hell say you'll rot in a cell, that's a jury

It's a real ugly fish but tastes yummy delish, that's John Dory.

If your jokes at a party evoke laughter quite hearty, social glory.

If your tummy and girth provoke sniggers of mirth, eat no more, eh?

In the film called The Thing, when the thing bursts thru skin, that's quite gory

His power was immense but he seemesd so goddam dense, that's Al Gore, eh?

If you eat five big pies and are sick all down your flies, make it four, eh?

If your powder based soup tastes like MSG/E filled gloop, must be Knorr, eh?

If the dress Posh is wearing has the audience staring, it's a Mouret

Ask a French man to cheer with an English veneer, sounds like ' 'oray'

If you pronounce the silent last e in the capital of Pakistan (the country), that’s Lahore

When you’re looking for the French verb for loving like an infatuated dwerb, that’s adorer

If you want the Latin root for sisters big small cute that’s sorore

There's an actress curly haired in the theatre emotions bared, Helen McRory

I know the last ones lack all grace, time for me to shut my face, time to snore, eh ?

If a fish takes a suck on your skin, you're in luck - that's remora

I really like the ones that end with something improbable! (Like the epidural one quoted earlier.)

When funfair music burbles and carousel twirls - hurdy-gurdy

When venetian glass shines, different colours entwined - millefiore

When George Smiley's around, and some spies are in town, that's le Carré
