Can you see me galloping off into the middle of a smokey glen, painted like Scottishman Smurf, swathed in tartan and crude battle gear about to experience the ball chaff from hell?
I've often wondered why he didn't just apologise just before they lopped off his John Thomas. Perhaps they simply didn't have any Campher Cream back in those days.
Anyway, here we are. On the eve of battle. The mighty Team Burger King readies itself to take on the evil battalions of other LMG Pub Quiz participants. Not partici-kilts. No chaffing today! And on a personal note, I prepare for another epic fight with Black Label Draft - my nemesis. You know what they say about keeping your enemies closer...
The sun is shining, I'm almost off to play some gentle football, before I have to skedaddle at a million miles an hour to get showered and fed before the big night.

Also, go and have a good laugh at what Helena Handbasket is up to and/or amused/musing at/about. Top read from a top writer. And exercise enthusiast...
