Should the floods not have subsided by then....floating rubber beds have been made available for the indoor camping area. Narrowboats are not narrow enough to negotiate the doorway so they will have to be parked next to the flooded sewerage plant. Dinghys are available for all guests but guitars and banjos will have to be used for paddling them as there are no oars. Sea biscuits, complete with realistic fake weevils are being supplied free so no-one need go hungry due to the closure of the local shop.
Bread will also be made available to feed the sewer rats which have emerged from the drains since the flood...well you need to keep them happy don't you?

Blitherscrum Folk Festival 2007 Revived by Gobhoblin!



"Gobhoblin Music was shocked and saddened by the cancellation, we are urgently looking into the possibility of setting up a Gohgoblin weekend of music offering pub sessions, live music and dances centered on the Blitherscrum Town Hall. It is too early to be specific but we hope to have something in place very soon to
alleviate the disappointment of festival goers and to ensure that there is continuity of live music over this weekend in Blitherscrum. We wish the Blitherscrum Folk Festival organisers good luck in getting the festival back on track next year."

I wonder if there's someone in Mudcat land who can check on obscure laws and statutes (or even obscene statues). The reason I ask is because I seem to remember that a Town Ordinance was issued in 1475 during the reign of Good Queen Danny that specifically forbade any form of the terpsichorean arts within three groats of the seventeenth Monday after Michaelmas Eve unless early closing fell on a Wednesday. The ordinance was aimed at Danny's youngest daughter Princess Lionel, who had theatrical leanings and a pair of secondhand tap shoes.

Urine more trouble than you think mate. Eddie has been pressing his wife for the name of the person who keeps on ringing her as he suspects that she is having some sort of illicit liason with an itinerant folk type person. He was going to get some of his acolytes to "have a word" then realised that he didn't have any, so he's sending acoheavies instead!

The Festival Committee have reacted to the flooding danger by moving their meetings to the upstairs room of the Gargling Goat to save the beer being watered down anymore than it is now. Landlord Harry Piddles had no comment when asked about the affair except to say "they can cast as many nasturtiums as they like, I'm 71 you know". Students of etymology are even now studying the statement for any trace of sense or meaning. Mr Piddles is now to be the subject of a programme by the well known hairstyle Melvyn Bragg.

It has been reported that Eddie Baker has been looking rather worried of late. Apparently all the recent water is affecting his primary business because (a) it is diluting his supplies and (b) because nature in the way of inundations is doing his job for him.

In an effort to reverse the situation Mr Baker has reportedly consulted local witchdoctor and transvestite Dolly Peggs who has recommended the wearing of a pigeon feather suit and anointing the head with essence of cod roe.

Mr Baker was, today, unavailable for comment as his wife has sent him to the dry cleaners.

Just goes to show what geologists know. The Tor did indeed produce smoke but was never a volcano. It is, in fact, the last remaining remnant of the once mighty commercial empire that was Ebenezer Crudworths Smokeworks. At its height in the 1890's there were 7 such chimneys belching out the finest thick, black, choking smoke in the whole of Victorian England. By not having to worry about any other associated manufacturing process, Crudworth was able to concentrate his efforts on smoke alone and became a major supplier of condensed smoke to the Empire. Wherever the map of the world was shaded red colonial officials could open a tin of Crudworth's finest and be immediately transported back to good old Blighty. Alas, fortunes declined after the 14/18 war and in 1925 Lungrot Crudworth, Ebenezer's only son, was forced to close the works and sell the land to pay off his gambling debts.

They need to be careful in banning 'On Top of Old Smokey' as the aforemention Bltherscrum Tor has been found to be (after a geological survey) a dormant volcano. Therefore any banning of 'On Top of Old Smokey' may well upset Vulcan and his mates. You have been warned!

Owing to a severe depression over Blitherscrum caused mainly by it having to own up to actually being Blitherscrum, there is a distinct possibility of it raining or getting dark before tomorrow morning. The ditches are already overflowing mainly due to the lack of adequate toilet facilities on the camp site and campers are asked not to deposit no.2's as they are having a damming effect downstream.

I understand that the Caterers will be making amendments to the Childrens menu.

H's and G,s will be dropped from the Alphbetti Spaghetti and Glottal Stops will replace some T's.

The catering staff feel that the educational value of these amendments will be appreciated by parents and children alike.
