You know Yuri, I think carrying that pistol might be a spot of overkill...

...and next week on Blue Peter John Noakes and Shep'll build this amazing piece of kit, apart from a considerable quantity of sticky-backed plastic you'll need 394 million foil milk bottle tops, 275000 squeezy washing up bottles... bit of a step up from Val's Fairy Queen's Castle, eh?

Very clever these Japanese. It’s a Transformer, that turns into an oil rig! The Chinese will get the shock of their life if they go for Okinawa!

Like most committee’s designs , this one had one fatal flaw , you can take ammunition or food but not both .
The committee’s idea to convert the engines to borscht is almost as bad as feeding the airpeople avfuel .

Apparently , the nuclear powered version that drove electric engines never got off the runway at Pripyat . Not enough borscht or too much borscht, nobody knows for sure and nobody’s talking .

The conversion of the engines to run on vodka was a disaster as the crew consumed the vodka at twice the rate of engine consumption and the plane reached bingo fuel just taxing out to the runway some days .

Only the elite cage fighters were allowed to serve on the Unidentified Flying Catastrophy (UFC).

What's the point in building a world clock if they're all set to six o'clock!

Most pilots failed the course when it came to understanding the fuel crossfeed system.

Flying was the secondary problem. Number One was where to park it.

In view of the weight issues, the need for 144 Navigators was revised.

We can build this, but still can't decide if the marking is FI or FL of fl and what it means!

Of course they're not engines, it's a novel Doodlebug launcher.
