Oh and incidentally people writing military series these days took take a few tips from WTBCI - accurate down to the contempt the lads from the service battalions returning had for the guys in the (IIRC) "9th Battalion".

Heh. Mine too. I have lost count of the number of rucks that kicked off with some twunt saying "Say 'when the boat comes in'..."

*Crack*

Say 'Auf Weidersein Pet'?



"Oh look, you have dropped your wallet"

*Crack*

Its not easy being Welsh.

Arrgh, The Clangers! Best thing on the planet apart from that episode in the toilet with Kim Bassinger at JFK all those years ago.

All right. Why do the Clangers talk in that weird squeaky noise? Eh? Cos I know the answer. Go on. Ask. You know you want to. Ah, go on, go on....

ask.

Glad you asked. Its becuse The Clangers live on the moon. And the moon has no atmosphere so they cant talk like we do.

So they communicate using MAGNETIC RESONANCE.

Hence the weird squeaky noise.

Thats gospel. Ask a REME or a baldy from GCHQ.

Feck James Bolam, look at Susan Jameson (works together with Bolam in New Tricks nowadays) - she wasn't half bad.

Explain the Soup Dragon. Please...
Oh please. Even among us nuclear rocket scientists, some things remain an eternal mystery. Have you no poetry in your soul?

Explain the Soup Dragon indeed. Pshaw.

The Soup Dragon and Kim Bassinger have a daughter? I feel betrayed. I may need a little sit down.

WTBCI was a cracking series. Watching 'New Tricks' the other might reminded me of how good an actor JB really is.

('New Tricks' is one series franchise I'd love to see the making of - I bet Bolam, Armstrong and Waterman have a great laugh making it.)
