I know, I know, I know. I'm always the one to say where is Neil but that is because he cheers me up and I need a laugh. Any news anyone?

Won't Neil have to convert to VooDoo first so he can raise the zombie, or do we have a Pol Pot golem to look forward too?

RD Nice post. Glad the sporrans have gone though.

Niel will be back soon apparently. I havejust bought a sheep puppet to talk to for when he is away. It is not a patch on the real thing. The "Real Thing" are still touring, just in case RD is still in the knife box!

I hope the puppet doesn't sound like the annoying whiny lamb chop,
 if it is a black sheep puppet a Barry White / Isaac Hayes type voice would be ideal.

[Lamb sporrans are available]

Both of whom are dead. What are you trying to say?

I was simply alluding to the comical incongruity of the bass tones of Barry/Isaac emanating from a "lamb chop" style puppet.
The fact that these gentlemen are both deceased is an unfortunate coincidence.

That looks more like Terence Trent D'Arby than Isaac.

Terence is dead in name only ...

Quote
[Terence Trent D'Arby] adopted the name Sananda Maitreya, following a series of dreams. His name was legally changed to Sananda Maitreya on October 4 2001. He proclaimed in an interview that "Terence Trent D'Arby was dead...he watched his suffering as he died a noble death," in what was perceived as an attempt to reinvent himself artistically and free himself from what he believed to be the oppressive nature of the record business.

I was going to say "Sananda Maitreya" must mean "escape my contract" in an obscure language  :) ,

but "Sananda Maitreya" is a name used by Buddhists/Ufoists for a messiah-like figure, (modest guy Terence).

(If there is an insanity clause in Terence's contract then I suppose saying he has become a God could be a get-out clause).

I once pretended to see dead people to get out of a History test but it didn't work. The teacher said that I should ask the dead people the questions as they could probably do better than me. Shucks!

Ewe should have persuaded your teacher to set the test in a morgue !..That way ewe would have been right and would have been given the day off..maybe even the week...perhaps your entire education off !

That would be rather jolly and swell wouldn't it ?....At the age of 13 being told to take the rest of your education off an being given ten million to play with too.

In Scotland they don't "see dead people",  they "see ned people", ("ned" is Scottish version of "Chav" or "Scally")

Quote
The stereotypical dress of a ned consists of a baseball cap, nearly always worn at an upwards angle. The baseball cap can be seen as a status symbol or identity marker, with certain brands, such as Burberry or Nike, considered preferable along with the MLB Baseball team the New York Yankees. In September 2004, Burberry stopped making branded baseball caps, possibly due to their close association with neds, ned culture, or English chavs. Other items may include a football shirt (often that of a major European club to which the wearer might have no other obvious affiliation) or striped top, and a shell or track suit. Accessories include plain gold earrings, chain necklaces and sovereign rings (which are effectively knuckledusters).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_(Scottish)

I though "Ned" was a contraction of "Ne'erdowell" , (like  "Scallywag" => "Scally => "Scal"), 
 but some say it's an acronym for "Non Educted Deliquent".
