I just let my mind wander. When I caught up with it, I found it starting to write a Goon Show Spoof of "War of the Worlds". Apparently it was to be entitled "The chances of anything coming from Margate".

I scare me.

Oh, thanks.

Never again will I hear the WotW sound-effect of the lid of the machine unscrewing without expecting it to be followed by an Eccles-style "Haaallo".

I don't think you should be allowed. Just in general.

Yes, that would be Blatantly Obvious Gag #1 ;)

You may scare you, but you make me love you. :)
You strange, strange person (with a strange, strange 'read comments' page that looks really bizarre from where I am...)

Was a documentary that was on last night at the same time as the Mark Steel Lectures. From what I can tell it draws heavily on material from the book "The UFOs that Never Were", which is on the bookshelf in the study.

Great, so now my brain's picking up Sky TV without electronic assistance?

Where's my tinfoil hat?

LOL!

I read your post just after watching it, and had the same music in my head.

Bizarre coincidence I guess :-)

That would require me actually writing it. I don't think that's wise.

Sounds good to me. I thoroughly endorse anything written under this heading. :)
