  5. Can I help choosing the boys I'll be very good at it.
  6. My bold - I've got loads of natural ugliness as listed above - will I get extra cash for being extra uglier? :)
  7. Can i suggest that you contact...Colin Crompton, as he sounds very suitable for the part and has a world of previous experience, particularly in the "Broken Noise" department. He can be accessed by his spirit guide, who is located at...The Wheel Tappers and Shunters social Club,

  15. What a shallow bunch you are - if it had been a Journalist, you would have f*cked him off at the high port by now!
    Actually, how do you know it isn't a journo out fishing? First of all, reel you in and then pump you for the necessary info as part of the "selection" process.
    Cynical - me?
