Well you almost caused an internet blow out with comments on this post.

Brian Hughes said...

Not so much a 'blow out', Andrew, as a small but tuneful fart.

Jayne said...

YAY!
*does the happy dance of fossils*

Best check with Wyrefield Farm, Brian ;)

Brian Hughes said...

Why...have the sheep escaped again, Jayne?

John said...

And there was much rejoicing.
Happy Christmas.

Brian Hughes said...

I wouldn't get over excited, John. You haven't read the rubbish I'm going to post yet.

Jayne said...

And, yea, there was a great wailing an gnashing of teeth when word reached the peasants that the Antiquarian was to return to the fold by following the shining star in the sky thus forcing them to put away their playthings and tidy up the joint...

Brian Hughes said...

And a decree went out from the Antiquarian that all its readers would be taxed...extremely taxed.

John said...

We find your comments very taxing, at least...

Brian Hughes said...

That's because when I was a kid I used to write the gags for Shakespeare.

Jayne said...

I thought that memo said Shakespeare was to gag you ? :P

Brian Hughes said...

No, that was Anne Hathaway...she was a bit kinky like that.

I'll try again. About time to! Are you going to give us some clues as to your next post .. a little snippet. I don't do waiting.

Brian Hughes said...

Melanie,

To be honest, I can't remember now. There's about five or ix of 'em lurking backstage on the board, waiting for the green light. I think the first one's got something to do with Norbreck...although it might be about monks. Whatever it is, it's bound to be up to the usual standard of guff.

UK online news today mentioned the farmer and the fossicker have agreed to 50-50 slit on those coins recently dug up.
Happy Thanksgiving

Ann ODyne said...

oh fer chrissakes Bwca
not '50-50 slit' ... SPLIT

Brian Hughes said...

Annie,

I think fifty-fifty slit sounds more appropriate somehow.
