CALIMERO FIGHTS BACK (published June 2 2001)
Stop this madness now


70s justice campaigner, Calimero has spoken out on the current fad for hurling unhatched chicks at politicians:

'Nobody ever thinks of the egg in these situations,' he whined. 'We are the innocent victims of a system geared towards the oppression of all shell suited species and it's time we spoke out.'

While the extent of Calimero's speech took many commentators by surprise (it is a common misconception that he only ever uttered 3 words in his life), his continuing rant in the style of Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver (a John Swinefever lookalike) left many listeners both dumb and, indeed, founded:

'One of these days I'm gonna get myself organisised. I'm not taking anymore. One day a rain will come and wash all the scum off the sidewalk and Ibrox park.'

When approached by a representative from the egg marketing board, Calimero flashed, 'You looking at me?'

SEX MANUAL SHOCKER (published June 23 2001)

Dumb dumb, dumber and dumb

Jeffrey Archer is attempting to jazz up his current predicament by producing a sex manual for people with a rudimentary grasp of jiggy diplomacy.

The new tome offers tips, guidance and diagrams for bedroom duffers from the master of sexual shenanigans himself.

When asked to make a comment Mr Archer had nothing to say but winked knowingly at no-one in particular.

Sick bags were provided for innocent passers-by.

NOTHING HAPPENED TODAY (published June 30 2001)
Not a sausage, bugger all

In a shock development all over the place, including this very planet upon which we squat and ponder, nothing has happened at all.

It is the moment all news hounds have dreaded since first man put quill to papyrus. Gripped by ennui, the populace have decided to do nothing in order to frustrate journalists and nosy people across the what is still continually being referred to as the globe.

Hence the necessity of this verbose nonsense, or as Shakespeare once said, 'Oi, get off my tractor!"
