He plays a lateral hop. Profound words could be used in a situation like this.
Mr Twotter place that chap in the list of sporting adverseries.
Sort of geezer who instead of playing the Marlin for !0 hours, takes a gulp, slides down the wire: then headbutts the fish.

Well, I believe that's a compliment, so, thanks for that.

End of the line ploy, eh? An interesting detour.

So, to counter, I aim to go upscale, seeing as it is Friday. I swivel towards the centric, hop on one foot backwards for a mile, and end up with the Pigeon-eating Pelicans: St. James' Park.

a quarter strile? a worthy play indeed.

From Gospel Oak, I can take a overhead smash, traverse the play back along the line [being careful not to shunt] and sweep it sideways, I should end up at Arnos Grove.

One will forfeit 23.gy podumes and contemplate a Frogmorten's ''swift half'' and dirtect play to

T3

Apologies for the aggressive nature of that move but one has 3 days to make up for.

Hmmm...unfortunately you leave me with little option other than to bank my re-rated nV% and move to Strand (as permitted under the Disused Stations (MC Application and Exemption) Regulations 1947).

Hats off old chap!

That was a bally fine example of a Balaclava's simplification if im not very much mistaken.

Mrs Trellis has pointed out that it has been quite a while since a Mercurian backshunt with strile has been played so therefore..

Slingshotting to Grange Hill? Brilliant!

How to follow that, I wonder...

Shuffle forward, skip the first line and spin twice whilst holding an umbrella at arms length [closed - of course] and find yourself at Great Portland Street.

Getting on at a positively cracking pace here. So with no further ado, obviously no signal failures and calling on the RMT working to rule limitation booklet 1921 (Rule 10 c para 1)
we can pass straight to ...

You mean ''No member of a Mornington Crescent rally shall initiate a Fockham's backslide with brevity whilst sporting a ginger moustache''

I admire your observance and knowledge of the rulebook but hardly think that pertinent here dear sir!

One proposes elevenses....at

Milton-Keynes no less!

Mr Grumpy should be able to lead us safely onwards.

You ask an awful lot sir, especially at the end of this month!
But one did enquire with he of the dog collar; the very Hallowed Ian.
Thus after perusing in the Cauldron and Pentangle [ hostelry for the defrocked]
He says that Seven Sisters & COVENt Garden are start points for those with a disposition to midnight dance at Ealing Common


Take care gentle folks and keep the garlic as an alternative side arm.

Quoting Monsieur cannot save you now dear sir..

Shepherd's bush

Now evening star should be able to pick the bones out of that one-considering Herr Twotter (now Twooter) is still in a state of creel.

Thats a nasty loop you've got yourself stuck in.

To release myself from the same loop I can play the '86 Convention of Middle England: Rule 6, sub clause 7: Any loop can be exited by spinning round in another self imposed loop at a great enough rate. Therefore, using the Aviation junket, I hereby play Heathrow Terminal 4.

Using a sideways hop, and with no ado whatsoever [moving the play along quickly], I call Euston.
