Okay so we lost Phil, and yes, it was a blow. To be honest we never thought he’d get out with such a small spoon but we underestimated Phils maternal connection to his beloved Chelsea and he tunneled all the way back. Gotta applaud his resourcefulness and a 10 1/2 mile tunnel excavated beneath the surface of London with only a Victorian sugar spoon is exceptionally resourceful.
So, we filled the gap with the magnificently clever Anna from CSM. Actually Anna is from Namibia [which is near CSM], and we bagged her with the old ‘riding on a beer cooler’ game. The rules are simple, you ride a beer cooler until you either fall off drunk, or get arrested. To be fair Anna was set up right from the off, we just pushed the beer cooler [with Anna on board] all the way from CSM to the Wunderkinder Workhouse in one go. Anna didn’t realise she’d been nabbed until the next day when she woke up [with a hang over] in the Victorian Steel Shop here at WCA. Nicely blagged!
Back in the 1950s we used to steal all of our technical team with the ‘sailing a table across the Thames’ game, similar to the beer cooler game but with a table, an out-board motor and a river [the Thames]. Basically you’d ride the table from one side of the river to the other, on reaching the south bank the table was instantly sawn in half rendering it useless as a means of escape. We got our beloved ‘Prospector Pete‘ this way….. [so now you know Chelsea!].
As you all know, any stay at the Wunderkinder Workhouse is celebrated with the application of a permanent Tattoo, [The Dean of Chelsea has USA tattooed along the length of his manhood]. So in proper Wunderkinder tradition this beautifully executed work is now proudly adorned by Phil and i think you’ll agree, that’s quite a six-pack!
Finally we are putting together a Christmas panto here at the Workhouse. This years theme is multi-cultural-ethno-echoism and we’d like to thank the fashion designers at LCF for the sterling work they have done on the costumes so far.
“Son……. fetch my shootin’ stick as i feel some roadkill comin’ on….”
