Knackered comes from "the knacker man". This was the guy in the UK who collected all the road kill, farm animals who died early etc. Then he would make pet food of the meat, bone meal, hides, leather etc. and sell them. Generally the knacker man was the lowest class individual in town and his homestead could be smelled from a mile away. At least that is how I have understood it. :D

Okay, I admit I once had an obsession with James Heriot's books and read them all, and that is where I first learned about the knacker man. :oops:

So, should we officially consider this thread hijacked?

What about the guy in Monty Python and the Holy Grail that goes around town saying, "Bring out your dead"? Is he a knacker man?

Yeah, I think it's official.

I will start a NEW Vegan Fitness Vacation Thread with all the updated info on timelines, locations, activities, who's coming, etc. so then when we get off track we can just select that section, copy and paste and re-post it to make it fresh so it won't ever get lost between the Waistcoats and then Knacker Man.

The UK is nice, but I love the sun and the beach.


This thread is so off topic I have know idea what is going on. But michaelhobson's post on page two made me think of this quote from the movie Snatch that Crystal "The Total Physique" is always telling me.

Cousin Abraham 'Avi' Denovitz: I don't like leaving my own country, Doug. And, I especially don't like leaving it for anything less than warm sandy beaches and cocktails with little straw hats.

Doug 'The Head' Denovitz: We've got sandy beaches.

Cousin Abraham 'Avi' Denovitz: So, who the fu** wants to see 'em?!

Just so we don't confuse anymore people, we can refer to this event as it was originally referred to as: "Vegan Vacation" feel free to add the "summer" or "2006" or both after the first two words.

I look forward to seeing you this summer.
