    Whilst my slithy toves are gyreing and gimbling like there is no tomorrow, my borogove is not in the least bit mimsy.
    Any advice would be most frabjous.

  3. Prepare your vorpal sword!
     
  4. Don't the conditions have to be right? Is it brillig in your area at the moment?
     
  5. Insert a Bambleweeny Sub-Meson Brain into a Brownian Motion Detector (a nice hot cup of tea, say) and your borogrove will be well and truly mimsied.
     
  6. I just hope a risk assessment has been carried out.

    They need to gyre and gimble in the wabe. That'll be where you've gone wrong, can't have them gimbling in particular just anywhere they feel like it, no siree.
    Get them back in the wabe and you'll be all mimsy in no time, plant a tumtum tree too, to rest by.
     
  8. What about the mome raths. Have they outgrabed?
    All variables must be present before your borogrove can mimsy.

    and keep those pesky jubjub birds off them
     
  10. Doom, first of all, are you a Beamish boy?
    If you've been on the Guinness you'll have no chance with them there jaws that bite and claws that snatch.
    Give it a bit of uffish thought and you'll be fine.

    Not above the dulcet tones of Rambling Sid Rumpo.

     
  14. Best watch out for the bandersnatch. I hear they're particularly frumious here on Personal.

    I once had a girlfriend whose bandersnatch went snicker-snack.
    She was very popular.

    Thanks for the explanation Doom. Now I feel ignorant. I should have recognised it![​IMG]

    But surely the wood can't be tulgey at this time of year?
