And whilst this discussion goes on, I shall sneek a move in under the Christmas Day Armistace (WW1, as amended) and other suitable adjuncts which I shall no disclose, in case I use them again this day.

Anyhow - Euston Sq it is.

One cannot argue with that move. Congratulations.

Shame on you Gouby ... that means I am forced to Dollis Hill again.

Hmmmph.

It's a bit of a pain to be back in the loop, but at least it gives us a chance to visit Mr Twotter on the way past.

Dollis Hill

Mr Matelot are you out there? Can you get us out of here?

One has been out of creel for a while, Mr G. One has merely been observing play so that one could leap into a nearby phone booth and assume one's alter ego, that of Superduperhyperman, when the time was right.

With my hand at no time leaving my wrist, I give you the van Heusen Single Twist adaptation of the famed Cringeknuckle About Face.

Thus...

Oh thanks a bunch SRT. As you're out of creel and I have to play Dollis Hill one more time (can't we ever get OUT of this blimmin station?), that put s me in creel for 3 days.

Ta muchly.
Humph.

If you would take the time to peruse subsection 2b of the Continuity Clause pertaining to Cringeknuckle's breakout play in Vol XII, you would find that your continued sojourn in the grip of creel at Dollis Hill is unnecessary. To continue

Yeah but check out the unabridged 1998 version of Watson's Shorter Compendium of Holiday And Yuletide Plays, page 148 (in chapter 5), 3rd para 2nd line...

Still if the previous creeled player insists thath the current creeled player shall be released from creel, then I'd like to play on. I therefore seek your approval, most humbly, Mr SRT, sir.

One was under the impression that Cringeknuckle overrides Watson under the Eton Ruleset.

As I appear to be uncreeled, Chalfont & Latimer is a nice, straight Boxing Day afternoon move.

I must admit that there are various aspects of the last few moves that appear to be somewhat unorthodox. However, I won't appeal to a higher authority today. Instead, with a looping lower shunt and a Phaeseolus twist I'll declare a Throgmorton anomaly with boxer shorts and play:

I agree with Mr Gouabafla

Lots of strange manouvres one was half expecting a Leftwin Twiddle.
A Hardy Greenhearts flick, takes the play to.

An East Putney, Dollis Hill combo - that can mean only one thing. Under the various rules, subjuncts and clarifications that so govern, I move:

Mornington Crescent.

A Leftwin Twiddle, your Lordship? Such a move hasn't been played since the catastrophe at the 1912 Golder's Green Synod. One believes the penguin was later found locked in a police cell in a state of shock but the fire extinguisher and lamp shade are missing to this day. Even the mere suggestion of such a move belies a state of desperation rarely seen outside a war zone.

How come that Caledonian student always wins? Hmmm? Not fairnotfairnotfair.

Right. Gloves off, no more pussyfooting around ...
