Stand Up Stand Ins

Things have reached such a low ebb over on the north side that even Roy Chubby Brown won't go there.

According to our local red top today, the comedian has pulled out of his June gig at the Winter Gardens 'due to unforeseen circumstances'.

I suggest that the 'unforeseen circumstances' were that somebody finally plucked up the courage to tell him he'd been booked in Margate.

Not to worry, however, because on the very next page I see that our magnificent boys in blue have come up with a plan to find a replacement. After a brainstorming session in their canteen across the road from the venue, they're "building a portfolio" on some pot smoking, foul mouthed drunks that are causing havoc here in the Millionaires' Playground.

Fans of Chubby's unique style of humour shouldn't get their hopes up too quickly, though. A Thanet police spokesman is quoted as saying: "It may not seem as if anything is happening on the surface".

Dear ECR It is no longer permissable to use the saying Brain Storm.
The PC merchants say we must use the words Thought Shower instead.

How about Brain Wash? Or is that banned too?

Snaily, I've taken a look now. Could you install one of those here in my clifftop mansion? It would save a helluva lot of time in the morning.

Do I see a plan forming? Is it your intention to sell Snail Spaces' site as a precurser to selling your own?
Funny you should mention brainwashing but mine has been laundered already, so no need to bother.

Ram Skate, I had noticed that your lonely thingy thing and your tree blog appear to be defunct. What's the griff?

Waiting to see what happens here before I decide on which tack to take.
I'm fairly sure that it won't be the type of 'take tack' that leaves a minty fresh taste in the mouth.

It already gets a bit rude matey, seems to have its fair share of 'tits' as it is and it's positively abound with 'stuff'.
Everyone seems to be doing their best to give you satisfaction but still you complain.
There's no pleasing some!

Maby Dirk should consider becoming a Twitcher.
That way he can get all the Tits he needs. with a few Gulls thrown in for good measure
