Surely, in the context of the question, it should be Snowflakes that stay on your nose and eye-lashes?

I thought about that, but decided that maintaining the purity of the original words was better, and people should be able to figure it out themselves :).

Kittens have much better features than their whiskers; whiskers are possibly my least favourite part of kittens. Apple strudel should be soggy. Whilst I was tempted to vote for 'wild geese' on the grounds of poetic, I don't actually like geese. Girls should, in general, not wear white dresses, although the blue satin is a good choice.

Why not?

Very few of them look good in white, because it emphasises the colour of their skin; coloured girls get away with them better than white girls, I suppose. If they get even slightly damp, the dress goes see-through, which is generally tremendously embarrassing. Also they are a pain to keep clean, and I object vehemently to social values such as the Persil ads which imply that boys and men are allowed to get dirty and women aren't.

Hang on, don't those ads have dirty little girls in too?

I think white dresses on tanned skin is about the summeriest look you can get.

Not the ones I've seen. All boys and men. There was one girl, who was impeccably clean and being watched by some of the boys.

I don't know about the current ones, but the ones I remember had a footballing boy, a bloke mending his car, and a long-suffering (spotless) wife/mother.

But only if you tan. Rather than say go lobster. Or green (White dresses make me look green).

Let me tell you, silver-white winters that melt into spring are vastly overrated.

On the other hand, they are, I suppose, much better than silver-white winters that don't melt into spring.

Mmm, schnitzel.

A German meatball-type thing, in breadcrumbs, rather underspiced and greasy.

None of the above, I think.
  • Raindrops are OK when they're falling from the sky and obstructing the otherwise oppressively strong sunlight in high summer, but once they're on roses they're of neutral value at best.
  • Kittens are fine to look at from a distance, but once you get close enough to see the whiskers they're probably being a pain somehow.
  • Kettles should have plastic exteriors so you can pick them up safely.
  • Gloves should be leather, not wool, so that they stop wind properly.
  • Gaffer tape, or at the very least parcel tape, Is Your Friend. String is an inferior alternative.
  • Horse-riding is a fun enough occasional pastime, but I wouldn't call it a favourite anything. Ponies are a bit small to ride sensibly anyway, unles you're twelve.
  • Apple strudel is something that all my non-coeliac friends can eat but I can't, bah.
  • Door bells are just annoying, due to their tendency to have salesmen, Jehovah's Witnesses, council or utility company drones etc on the other side of them, or (conversely) not to work properly when you ring them.
  • Sleigh bells are probably very useful in countries where people have a strong need to hear sleighs coming, but round here they just mean excessive Christmassy slush.
  • Noodles: see apple strudel.
  • Geese are cut-price swans.
  • OK, girls in general are a good thing and I wouldn't wish to live in a world without them. Choice of clothing is secondary to that, though.
  • Snow is a pain at the best of times. Snowflakes that stick to you while they melt fully are EVIL NAPALM OF COLD because they suck out so much more of your body heat.
  • Silver white winters: see snow.
I hope that makes my position clear. That is all.
