I immediately suspected that Wing Commander "Jumbo" Sloman had gone "over the wire" as is his wont. However, he responded (if somewhat woodenly !) to his name at the roll-call, so we must look elsewhere for the miscreant. And rest assured, he will be hunted down, dragged back, and will spend several weeks in the cooler playing with his ball.
I must say that I am disappointed . I had thought that I ran an enlightened blog, with none of the gratuitous brutality found elsewhere in the blogosphere. Obviously my trust has been misplaced, and therefore I have no option but to suspend the use of the following items which I had donated to The Followers Social Club
- The vaulting horse
- The JCB
- The dumper
- The false moustaches
- The piano
- The compressor and all the rock-drilling tools
- Women's clothing (except, of course, for that belonging to the women)
- The tilting stove.
- All motorbicycles and microlight aircraft except those for which a valid permit has been issued.
- All graphical material in the "Visit Switzerland" series issued by the Swiss Tourist Board
- The passport machine.
- The pop-up toaster
And finally, Followers will no longer be eligible to receive "Red Cross Parcels" from Backpackinglight.
I hope this will serve as a timely warning.
That is all.
