That Captain Clevedon radio version that BBC Bristol did, now has pictures and looks like this:
It's selling great guns in Clevedon, with Alexandra Rd News, Paper Planet and Clevedon Pier all taking delivery of fresh orders today. The piece in the local paper was good fun and, if you didn't catch it, looked like this (click to read):
Clevedon Gets Its Own Superhero
And apropos of nothing, here's fun from Twitter last night when I idly joined in with one of those "making up rubbish puns" games, and won. It began with Emma Freud tweeting stuff like:
@emmafreud If Woody Allen married Natalie Wood, divorced,married Gregory Peck, divorced, married Ben Hur, he'd be Woody Wood Peck Hur *dies*
@emmafreud And if Honor Blackman married Richard Todd she'd still be Honor Todd.
My favourite was: @EmmaK67 If Snoop Doggy Dogg married Winnie the Pooh, he'd be Snoop Doggy Dogg Pooh *gets coats, leaves Twitter*
My contributions began:
If Balloo The Bear somehow married Clark Peters and Graeme Garden, he'd be Balloo Peters Garden #contrivedmarriednames
If Hugh Bonneville married Pete Doherty then Gary Oldman he'd be Hugh Doherty Oldman @emmafreud #contrivedmarriednames
And if Sue Perkins married Muhammed Ali, & Matthew Freud, & Hugh Jelly, & Sting, & a Microsoft system, then...
...Duke Ellington, then Rufus out of Rufus & Chaka Khan, then she'd become... #contrivedmarriednames
... Sue Perk Ali Freud Jelly Sting XP Elly Rufus #contrivedmarriednames @emmafreud
To which Emma Freud replied:
@emmafreud We have a winner. RT @falsettosocks: If @hughbon married Pete Doherty then Gary Oldman he'd be Hugh Doherty Oldman #steptoe
@emmafreud @falsettosocks you are vg.
Which fair made my night. Glad to be of service.
