Tooting Bec? Tooting Bec?? No good can come of a Northern Line Ploy at this stage, Nigelinoz, you mark my words.

We'll say no more and hotfoot it to Canary Wharf, and let's pray that nobody else noticed.

Perhaps I was unwise with that gambit so early, Forkandles and to make amends I will buy you a pint at Hackney Wick.

That is most noble of you Nigel, I'll have a glass of Samichlaus, with an eggnog chaser, if that's alright?

A Reverse Schnorbitz on the Green Line to

The Samichlaus is fine but I would steer clear of the eggnog if I were you
Forkandles.you don't want to get caught short on the journey to Dollis Hill.

Gribble, gribble, thrice gribble.
Watch my back
Wanton destruction of wantons
Gribbledygook, gribbledygook

Dive dive dive [turns three times on the spot anti-clockwise]

Gribble (wit for it.... wait for it.....)

Finchley Road & Frognal

(see - worth waiting for wasn't it?!)

Upping the stakes with a trip to Dollis Hill, would usually elicit sharp intakes of breath and several raised eyebrows. But on this occasion, with, I suspect, an imminent Figgis Transverse Diagonal Gambit in the offing, it seems to be most appropriate!

I'll see your King's pawn to e4 and counter with a not unsurprising pawn to c6

Euston


edit: must type faster when contemplating a Dollis Hill conundrum...

Quite. A schoolboy error. I should be beaten with a large halibut as I proceed to

King's Cross

Better.

I don't have a halibut but I do have a small dolphin with a slightly shrivelled left flipper. May I offer to provide his services?

Hmmm. The Tufnell Park Riposte. Not entirely unexpected.

Time, methinks, for the introduction of the Monopoly Sideshift Rules, 1912.

Old Kent Road

Get out of that one

All this moving around has me in a complete spin. I have checked my pockets and they are empty therefore I must go to the

Bank

Bearing in am I fairly new to this means of travel am I travelling to my fellow passengers delight or am I making a pig's ear of life underground?

clicker, an exquisite move! It is a wise man that happens upon Bank when confronted by the Monopoly rules.

Uhuru? She will not be born for a few hundred years yet, in time to take part in the first inter-racial kiss on primetime US TV. Then we'll have Wesley Crusher and Seven Of Nine to take us boldly where no train has gone before. Which makes this a good time, in my opinion, for a walk in Holland Park.

Hmmm, it appears we're on the verge of a Thromboid Progression which, as we all know, is a seriouds state to be in given the season.

I fear drastic measures are called for if we're to avoid such a painful experience (the last TP caused the fire extinguisher to explode and the penguin to turn vegetarian!).

There's no choice but to invoke Stattingers 3rd Protocol.

bnt-

Methinks you're thinking of Lt. UhurA... as opposed to Black UhurU... very different, but mistakes are rife... especially when playing at a fever pitch. Case in point:

Imagine my surprise... one fancied a curry, so headed out near the last stop to get one... place looked a bit sketchy, but in for a penny and so forth... awoke with a splitting head... all clothing swapped for rags and ID gone... where in the world???...
