I lost my PANIC button, which I loved, it was so ME (sob, sob.)
So here's a nice gibbon for all you who have upgraded. (Doing mine at the weekend.)

Have you tried looking under the sofa seats? Everything always gets lost there.

There's another thing gone to the pile in heaven.

Where do things go when they're lost? You know what I think? I think there's a big pile of things somewhere. I think there's a big constantly changing pile of things that are lost. You lose Something, whoo-pop, it goes to the pile. And then you say, 'Oh look, there it is,' whoowhoowhoowhoowhoowhooph. Right back from the pile. And you didn't even know there was a pile.

And where is the pile? In Heaven, of course...has to be in Heaven. That's the first thing that happens when you get to Heaven, They give you back everything you ever lost. That's the whole meaning of Heaven. You get back everything; 'Here ya are, 79 pairs of sunglasses, 212 cigarette lighters, 4,983 ball point pens. Here's a jock strap we found on the Golden State Freeway...it appears to have mule hoofprints and chocolate sprinkles on it...must've been quite an evening.'

Yes, you get back everything...Everything, When you get to Heaven...well, not everything, you know, you don't get the big things back. Good judgement, that never comes back. Your tonsils, your appendix, they keep those for display purposes, virginity...you don't get that back, because you're in such a big hurry to get rid of it in the first place. But, you get back all your wallets. You get back every wallet you ever lost...No cash...it's just like earth. They keep the money as a prayer offering.

It's embarrassing really... I was trying to put on Halloween fancy dress, and somehow I just dropped it into cyberspace. Can't remember the URL or anything.

Still I like the gibbon. Same IQ as me :KS
