No idea.

Out of deference to Faintly, I'll fold up the Grauniad and adjust the beard and sandals before we go any further.  And flip the top of a bottle of Mr Chimbley's excellent Golden Pheasant.  There.  That's better.

This is a true story.  And it comes from Lowestoft.

I think you've heard by now that Lowestoft Hospital got broken into t'other night, and the burglars carefully left all the videos, teles, flash new PCs, flat screens, drugs, expensive medical equipment, consultants' booze cabinets etc, and made off with a nine year old computer.  Well, later that same night, the local plod picked somebody up wheeling a computer down the road in a Tesco trolley.  Probably the same bloke who tried to rob the takeaway last year but legged it empty handed having whacked the till so violently to open it that he jammed it shut.  And then there's The Darkness.

And what's all this about Sir Torrey Canyon and pasties in Berlin?  Still, given some of the pasties I've seen in SI, perhaps if we ship 'em all over there we won't have to worry about servicing the Lancaster again.

And talking of pasties, I was Beales (Prince of Darkness and Lord of the Seventh Portal of Hades) the butchers the other day getting the haggis, and he had some pasties, so I got one for my lunch, and very nice it was, too. Better than many from further west, in fact.

A quick warning to Toni Mester.  Toni, it was sweet of you to offer him tea, but the very sight of it makes him foam at the mouth and falling writhing to the floor.(Not, I know, that unlike the usual Jelly)  He only drinks beer. Doom Bar. In industrial quantities.  I know.  I've had to sit there more than once with my half pint of ginger beer shandy and watch the whole unpleasant spectacle unfold.

And please could you explain to Faintly. WE ARE NOT IN THE ****ING FENS!

Nessum dorma.

And yet, no doubt, the perpetrators still managed to outwit the police and authorities!

As for the pasties, you've got to remember that 99% of the pasties served up down here are intended for the tourist market and are therefore made to a slightly lower standard than that usually required for inmate feeding in concentration camps.

Why aren't you in the fens? Get back in there immediately before someone spots you. Talking of which how did you manage to get haggis in the bayou? I thought they were only indigenous to the frozen highlands of Boney Spotland.

Finally, how dare you slag me off for my DB quaffing? The RT and I only do it under duress in order to provide you with entertainment and .....

Now that's what I call proper investigative journalism.

Who's this Donna and what's she doing with your phone?

We haven't had an update from plod central lately, so I guess the perps have got clean away across the county line to Norfolk.

As you well know, all good things, including haggis, come from East Angular. Many local farmers have moved out of prairie farming and now have established breeding herds, mainly because they were finding it more and more difficult to get hold of prairie seed.

I was merely trying to warn Toni that dragging you off to Mrs Trecreamtea's Tea and Pastry Emporium would be met with a lot more resistance than dragging you off to the Slurp.

Honi soit qui mal y pense.

I don't know but she'll end up as a kebab if I ever catch up with her.

Just as a matter of interest, did my emails used to turn up looking like a badly unpicked pullover (the Winwaloe method), and if not, did this one?

Yea and, verily, yea.

That's better.

Now run and play outside. I got rather 'tired and emotional', as they say of politicians, yesterday. I have sent the Reporting Team out to get me
soothing ice-packs for my fevered brow and I shall retire unto my bed and decompose in front of the rugger buggery as soon as I have finished this week's promulgation.

OK, Mal, or was that Pense?

As is my head this morning. Now bugger off and leave me to fester in my post-binge miseries!
