Which opens up the opportunity for me to play a Picadilly line sweep.

Pick a colour, pick a colour, the colour coordinated map of the underground is not effective if one is colourblind, so in support of the colourblind alliance's request to alter the underground map so that the lines have shapes, rather than colours has been led by myself for many a year - the red central should be a procession of minature bears, we can't decide on their direction, east or west at the last meeting and the darker hue of the Northern line should be not dull, solid black line, but a large snake, starting at the top, and it's tail at MORDEN

Morden, eh? And on a solstice, too. You don't see the old Kleinwort move much these days - good of you to bring it out of retirement, HH.

I remember my old tutor always told me;

Follow Morden on a solstice day
With Bond Street and you're on the way.

Of course, he never played a game at this level and quite frankly didn't have a clue what he was talking about.

Out of interest Mr G,just who was your MC tutor?My mentor was the late Major Reginald Bathurst-Brock but I was also a great afficionado of the Frogmorton school of thought.One considers Frogmorton to be a more..shall we say-fundamentalist MC cleric but many great gambits have originated from his esteemed self.

Mickey, you'll never learn -

For the Hyde Park fair, don't take Leicester Square,
for the Queen mother gate, me old mate,
for the Serpentine, I hear you whine,
for the Diana fountain not Mohammed mountain,
for the Albert hall, I know you're no fool,
you must arrange, to take your train,
to a small train station, and I mean no malice,
Just across from the Royal Palace,
If you're taking your mum, I fear I must warn her,
that the most adequate solution is HYDE PARK CORNER

The underground, the underground,
the circle line goes round and round,
the northern line goes up and down,
the central line, from east to west,
like a gorilla beating his chest,
the district line has an amusing shape,
covering all, like Batman's cape,
you can jump on in the North,
and end up in the East,
or jump on in the West,
and end up with a feast,
in Chinatown, Dim Sum I hear?
Or soho, love, if you're a little queer,
or down to the ends of the earth maybe?
Pushing a pram without a baby,
in Mordens fine 1930's roads
Or on Hampstead heaths, ponds, with their toads,
you can be lost, even lost and found,
when you ride to GLOUCESTER ROAD on the underground.

My first MC tutor was Major Bathurst-DeJong. I believe he was a native of Mr Twotters fair country: at least he ate a lot of biltong and spent an outrageous amount of time in creel. I was very fond of him despite his obvious lack of true skill for the game. The last we heard of him, he was setting up an elephant's milk yoghurt business in the Transvaal. There is a rumour that he was killed while trying to attach the milking machine.

That was a fine peom Mr Hamster. Can I suggest that you make it a bit ruder and then post it over in Trab? They like their peoms rude over there.

All this talk of peoms brings out the Molesworth-Peason, Fortheringay-Thomas manouver (hello clouds, hello sky)

Mr Matlow

Not paying attention to the run of play can become a grievous burden on one so talented as your good self. Did you not observe the Twangthistle Anomaly that placed you in knid?

Obviously you will also realise the abhergast conversion cannot convert your current (and regular it would seem) creel situation.Were one in spoon or pantaloon then yes!

Good grief, Mr M! One has definitely not been paying attention to play. Cribbins quite specifically states that the only instance where Baker Street can be used in an Aberghast is the conversion of creel to a half spoon as a prelude to neutering the krebbitch. A full reversal would require that the percentage of relative line velocities exceed the friction thermodynamic between the conductor's socks and his boots on a Thursday where the temperature is less than 64 deg F.

None of that chemical swill called Tusker or Castle or what-have-you. One will enjoy a Gilroys Ruby Irish Ale, if you please.
