Did you hear about the French Baker who fell over and landed on a pile of baguettes ?

He survived, but he was in a lot of pain !

This is beautiful stuff from Peter Hammill.

Just sit back, close your eyes, relax, and listen.

After all, the subtitled lyrics won’t mean much to most people . . .

O come all ye Conspiracy Theorists

by NobblySan

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen; can you please be seated as I call to order this Extraordinary General Meeting of the Guild of Conspiracy Theorists (West Midlands branch)

If it is OK with everybody, I’ll skip the usual formalities such as Apologies for Absence, and get straight to the heart of the matter; namely the disappearance of Duncan ‘BigD’ [surname withheld for legal reasons] from The Mad Hatters blog.

I know, my friends, that in the past you have served the cause well in coming up with some fantastic theories and explanations  for a range of (ahem) ‘events’ of national and international importance – The moon-landings, the lack of trousers on Donald Duck and the apparent inability of The Mighty Villa to win the Premier League being right up there with the best of them.

However, in this latest matter of utmost importance, I must call upon your services one more time to explain away the lack of posts from our scruffy, drunken, bearded, dog-loving friend.

There are obvious explanations that spring to mind, such as:

  1. He’s died
  2. He’s ill
  3. He’s got so fucked off with it that he’s ditched the MH  as a New Year’s Resolution
  4. Him and ‘allthoughtswork’ (also conspicuous by her post-new year absence) have run away together to start a new life in Dudley

However, these are simple and obvious conclusions to which to jump, and clearly the work of a sad and little-used imagination –  I’ll say no more about them.

So, my friends – flex your wrists, crack your knuckles, top up your imaginations with a dose of something alcoholic and get typing!

Time is of the essence.
