IMPORTANT BREAKING NEWS.

At almost the last minute, the festival committee has managed to secure a late concert appearance by the legendary Jenny Talia Band.

The band has had a serious rupture of late, so nobody knows for certain what the lineup will be. However, I'm reliably informed that Red Scrotum will be playing the knackers, and the always reliable Richard Hampden will be showing the world what he's made of. Jenny will be leading them on vulvazula and, as always, the band's programme will be gleaned directly from oral transmission.

Best of all, this sudden addition will not lead to any increase in ticket prices. That's because the band is funded entirely by pubic subscription.

To make things worse, one of the most respected bodhran players in Little Muckleton, that's the next village to Blitherscrum, was there that year. Winning cups and medals and all kinds of stuff he was, until the dog crapped in his bodhran case.

Has anyone reminded the drug squad this year that we are entirely innoquous. Remember the situation last time they got a call about dubious characters meddling with noxious substances? Turned out to be nothing to do with drug crazed degenerates smoking grass or whatever they call cannabis nowadays. It was just Delaney's donkey had got loose and was helping himself to a tasty bit of somebody's nearby lawn.

As if that wasn't enough, one of the sniffer dogs ate my lunch and pissed all down my bloody leg. And I got a caution for not being able to produce a complete set of Voice of the People.

It's good to know, according to Owen, that the Blitherscrum smokeworks are still going and pouring their black soot into the atmosphere. A tradition sadly lost in most parts of this blighted land. Only the other day I saw a field of almost green grass. A terrible blot on the landscape.

"I assume that all the morris sides dance the medup tradition."

Nearly correct Guest, in fact all sides are required to dance in the well known Nottinghamshire 'me duck' tradition. Flat caps and/or miner's helmets are not obligatory but whippets are and 50% of tatters must be of lace.

Blithersrum is in Berkhamptonshire

Are you sure? I was led to believe that Blitherscrum was in Norfolk.
I'm sure that one year I was asked to distribute leaflets at our club that were headed:-

As you rightly say GS, Upton Ogood is indeed the nearest town being, in christian measurements, some 5 leagues away. However, the tiny hamlet (other cigar brands are available) of Nevern Ogood is but a spit, cough and half a tardwainers nard in the same direction and worth a visit to see its Museum of Medieval Gas Cookers.

It is not recommended to attempt to go to Berkhampton itself as it involves two hay rides, a three wheeled tandem and an ox drawn dung cart. Return tickets not available on Tuesdays during the bogget hunting season (January thru December).

Maps are available. Please send a stamped and addressed goat for delivery.

Last year it was rumoured that one of our Festival goers had visited a graveyard and seen a man actively rubbing musical notes off a page of music. The concensus of opinion was that it was probably a dead musician 'decomposing' !

It might help some of those unfamiliar with the ways of Blitherscrumites to know that 'hidden agendas' is a local euphemism for the internationally known sport of hiding the sausage (saucisson, wurst etc). The current world champions of course being Winston N'Bristol and Grace M'Siddley of Ketchupwananland. Apparently a saucy pair who have 27 offspring between them.

By the way, in the interests of keeping music live, would it be beyond the bounds of possibility to actually have performers this year who are not so much composing as composting? Apart from anything else it's too much competition for the poor cat!

Sinsull. You are confusing Mr Stinks with a female fan of the festival who is affectionately known as Ms Takes ('em off). Ms Takes' metabolism has a very low tolerance of alcohol, with the consequence that, after 17 pints of Dirty Nelly's (5.8% OG), she starts to take her clothes off. This act of physical denouement continues until she is entirely naked, usually after she has demolished her 24th pint.

The matter has been reported to the festival committee who, I regret to say, treated the complaint with an attitude of "So what? Let it all hang out".

This I could have understood fifty years ago when Ms Takes was doubtless in the prime of life. However, at her present age, variously estimated at between seventy and a hundred and three, most of it hangs out regardless of her state of dress.

Mr Stinks was a MS actually. She is returning this year with a litter of little Stinkies. Might we not invest in a litter box? Several guitar cases were put out of commission last year with just one cat on site.
Eight or ten could wreak havoc or just plain reek.

The dog didn't find it funny. I told him time and time again. Drink all the slops and free pints you want, and that amber stuff they serve in those little glasses. That's very tasty. But one bite of a bodhran player's leg, especially if the owner of the leg had been on that 15% proof Hair Of The Goat Special the night before, will prove instantly fatal.

Ah well, he's up in heaven now, where there's no bodhrans, only harps. Knowing Rover, he won't be happy till he's bitten through one of them. But as they've all gone electric up there, he might be in for a bit of a shock.

BTW., does anyone remember that cat the festival adopted? Mr Stinks they called him. By 'eck, if you stood downwind of that thing after it had had a feed of boiled cabbage and beans!!!
