Sturmey Archer’s Slipped Cogs


#681

David Mitchell, on The Unbelievable Truth: “There’ll be letters. Mostly consonants…”


#682

There is always the legal defence of “fair comment”.


#683

…just listening “live”…

…fer Christ’s sake!!!

(…looks for Glazier on speed-dial…)


#684

I’m about three minutes behind and bracing myself.


#685

I think enduring the CoronaVirusThingy must be better than this swill!!!


#686

About to start…

Be careful, Sturmers; it might be difficult to find glaziers on call-out in the present circs. And even if you did, I wouldn’t trust the supply chain…


#687

Gahhhh!

There am I wanting Robert to get the Bad Phonecall from the hospital and we get Whore feckin’ Joyville an’ Peep.

I am gettin’ baulked of me rightful prey a bit often for my liking.


#688

…well, I tend to go through winders like most folks go through toilet-paper!! :no_mouth::no_mouth::dizzy_face::roll_eyes::roll_eyes::roll_eyes:


#689

At least it ended badly for Pip.


#690

What, very carefully and parsimoniously, Sturmers? Forgive me for saying this so publicly, but I don’t believe you.


#691

Do I take it gin would be advisable? Actually a hot whiskey would certainly cheer me up…

Just opened the TA page:

“Robert makes an emotional gesture”

One finger or two?


#692

Not badly enough, Dahlink. Not by a long chalk. Although I suppose both brothers might ditch her and she could be picked up by a novice serial killer, who will also ditch her, the length and breadth of Borsetshire.
Forgive my optimism. Trying to keep boardly spirits up in these troubled times.

Seriously, though: is she even remotely credibly written or acted as the mother of a young child?


#693

…I can only guess you’ve never seen the inside of my over-crowded garage! (…pics to follow…)


#694

o god, what have I DONE?


#695

My theory is that the worse the actor is, the worse the writing gets.


#696

It’s a fairly plausible one.


#697

…I wonder how many times #45 has thought those very words?


#698

…so, are you saying the writing is tailored to the actor??? :thinking::thinking::thinking:


#699

As if we needed to be told…

That caused a bad accident with Valuable Beer, that did, blast you.

Pure brilliant.
