ONE FOR THE ROAD

ben trovato writes: anticant has been moping on the sofa for most of the day, having been scolded by a presumptuous intruder for the allegedly too sombre tone of his morning post, and forbidden any more brandy mince pies - a command which he has needless to say ignored. So I have whiled away the time perusing the newspapers and offer the following which I trust will restore the burrow's reputation for seasonal gleanings:

The burrow will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day for hibernation, rumination, and ingestion of modest quantities of festive fare in contrast to orgiastic goings-on elsewhere. See you again on Wednesday, folks. Urgent messages can be appended here, but may be ignored. So there!

The posting touched me.
And I for one get introspective at this time of year..and sad.
You write so beautifully, whatever the subject - you are indeed a great joy.

Thanks, LB. Festivefascists are as obnoxious as any other brand of thought police.

Drunken behaviour is no excuse in the eyes of the Law.
Nonetheless, a profuse apology to anyone who has been sighted and captured above the radar this Xmas.
Orrabest.

That man is a bad influence, must be said.
Never thought I would be reading The Telegraph on Christmas Day, this year or any other.
(I did have a glance to remind myself of the true horror and saw yesterday's latest headline 'Hitler invades Poland'.)
Nonetheless, had to cry a little when I saw that 'Charlie Drake Dies' was juxtad with 'Bono Knighted'.
What a world we live in.
I am not a celebrity, get me out of here.

Shit. Pressed the wrong button.

Judge anticant rules that sex is not a mechanical matter. There is no place for either sex or machinery in the burrow. Ernest the Policeman has been ordered to escort that woman off the premises. A second appearance will result in a fine for being drunk & disorderly.

LB is pure Manx.

Anon : Pissed again?

Where is the much needed Judge to bring some damned order to this court of jesters?

That anonymous is not the real anonymous - but obvilously knows the real one well enough to mimic the style.
Eyes and ears are open.

Judge anticant: "Anonymous? Prick of steel? Man of straw, more like. £50 fine and £25 costs."

Lucas said...

prick of steel at 25 notes plus costs.
Cheap at the price - even I would plead that one.

Male Chauvinist Pigs are banned from the burrow. By Order.
