Does it work the other way round? i.e., if I pay 20, can I be ignored and disrespected? All official-like? Neat-o!

Trust me, he was shattered, the comfortable achieving of high level stats were soon reduced to the constant re-typing of four letter words!

In reply to UKC News: Priceless! Especially liked:

"It also makes financial sense as we may be offering Franco 20,000 pounds per year, but we have insured him for 250,000."

In reply to UKC News:
As Franco's major sponsor I perhaps should provide some background information.
I was both impressed and horrified that Franco would go winter climbing dressed only in threadbare tracksters and cotton T shirt. Was it an extension of the North Eastern males reputation for going out drinking year round in a T shirt or merely an impoverished student. Anyway some unused fleeces ( which were an awkward size between the Graham boys and petite Graham ladies ) were bestowed to the grateful FC at the insistence of the missus who I think had fallen for his youthful latin charm.

Hi Rick,

Am I too fat to be sponsored by Rick Graham fleeces?
