A LOAD OF BAHOOKIE

Everything in this newspaper which isn't even a newspaper is a load of bahookie and we strongly advise our readers not to believe a word of it. Not even the bits that are true. Discretion is the better part of valour.

More about Chik's bahookie …

CH-CH-CH-CHANGES

A person called Chik Duncan didn't change his wellies for nearly ten years. Phewww!

But he has now.

Environmental campaigners Nosepeace and Friends of the Nostril have issued a World Wide Wellie Warning that the old wellies should be avoided like nuclear fallout or troll breath.

UPDATE: Saturday 25th April 2015
The site is still currently being re-organised into new sections. Please bear with us as we strive to maximise the quality of the customer experience.
That was irony, by the way.

TWO POYUMS FOR JAPAN

A wee while ago I was asked if I had any work that I could donate to an anthology raising money for Japan after the Tsunami. I didn't, so I wrote a couple of new poyums and sent them off. I never heard anything back so I expect they didn't get used.

THE TREE SQUARES

Wince upon a tome there were tree squares. There was Dummy Square, there was Baddie Square, and there was little Maybe Square, and the wall lived in a cortege in the farwest.

Windy, Dummy Square derided to cook some partridge so she did.

So she did.

And that's when all the rubble farted.

CLEVER THING SAID

Ireland's brainiest boy, Phil O'Sophy, said something very clever in his sleep last night. Unfortunately there was nobody there to hear it.

Unless you count his teddy bear.

In an interview this morning Master O'Sophy said, "Cornflakes, please."

INVASION OF THE GURGLEBURPS

The whole world and somewhere else is on red alert today after the Scottish Space Spying-on Society - Mrs Flora McPorridge who sits on a hill with a telescope, a wee pot of tea and some Tunnock's Caramel Wafers - spotted two flying saucers and a dinner plate landing in a field just outside wherever it is that you live.

Mrs McPorridge immediately sent her carrier-penguin, Tux, with a secret coded message to the Scottish government, saying that she doesn't like rudeness and the outer-space crockery drivers wouldn't stop gurgling and burping and something should be done about it.

Chief Inspector Cornpad O'Bunion has warned members of the public to, "cnsnliuf as;kjnfa jjgkgdlseee bhifiuh di a iuashd" and he also asked if someone could please clean the marmalade off his computer keyboard.
