Sherluck Fukken Holmes and the Cubicle of Doom.

Holmes is ensconced in his den on the second floor of 22A baker Street, his noble head framed by an eerie blue glow.

“Watson....  though I know many things, like, for example, who will shoot John F. Kennedy, I confess that I did not know there are hundreds of love-hungry females in my suburb that are waiting to have intercourse with me! I am astonished at this as I know this area fairly well and it comprises mainly 9-5 businesses. So, I deduce that some or many of the shopkeepers and business owners are ladyboys... or boygirls whom I prefer to call boyles.”

“Holmes, Old Man;  it's just an advertisement on Victorian Visage-Libre. I think you can safely ignore it.”

“If you say so, Watson, you being the man of the world, but I am somewhat disappointed nevertheless to pass up such a robust opportunity to meet a nice young lady and have verbal and various intercourses with her. However... I have here, Watson, on this telegram, an opportunity for adventure that we must not ignore. The Queen has been invited to the opening of a zipper fly at the Regents Park public toilets and we have been summoned to provide discrete chaperone duties.”

"I say, Holmes! Why in heaven’s name are we required at such a high-falutin’ social occasion?”

“My Dear Watson, I believe Her Royal Big-Arsed Majesty fears interference in the proceedings by the devilish Professor Moriarty who is opposed to public toilets, believing that one should do one’s monthly turd in one’s own earth closet, and not be leaving it in a park gazebo for some second party to dispose of – at the public’s expense! But, enough blether, Watson; we are urgently required by Lard-Arse Vicky so, bring your medical kitbag - especially your tweezers and our best Macintoshes!”

“I say! Pretty poor weather out there, eh, Holmes?”

“Watson, you fukking pull-through – It’s industrial revolution era London; the weather is always shit! But that is not the reason for the singular accoutrements. You see, in the event that, once the zipper is opened, a pubic hair is caught stretched across the hog’s eye in the bell-end therein and on its way thereout, you must quickly remove it with the tweezers to prevent the splitting of the stream. Any delay could be messy, hence the Macintoshes, as one may be showered by two golden rivulets of unpredictable direction.”

“I say, Holmes….”

“Yes, Watson. So you fukken sed. And if you say it again I will kick you in the nadbag.  Now….away to Regent’s Park, Watson; the game is 30.48 centimetres!!!”

At the Regent’s Park Public Lav.

“On Behalf of me, Queen Victoria, I now declare this Zipper open…. Oh, My Gawd. What is that ‘orrible smell comin’ frum over theyuh in the lavs???”

“I knew it, Watson. It’s an arse-assination attempt by Proferssor Moriarty! He has dropped a ham grenade in one of the dunnies in the bank of cubicles and it’s fukken putrid. Deadly!!!! It’s like a gangrenous pig crawled up his arse and died in its’ own shit and then he shat it out… with his own foul dung!!!!!!  Everybody out now or die by chundering up your ringpieces!!!!”

“Holmes,” shouted Watson as the crowd surged towards the turnstiles. “I see a shadow wearing a mortar-board hat fleeing in the darkness!”

“Good work, Watson. It’s Professor Moriarty! We have surprised and routed him from the cubicle of doom!”

“He’s headed towards the catering tent, Holmes. Shall I shoot him with my revolver?”

“No, Watson. I’m going to try out this little device on him. Watch out!”


My word, Holmes. Did you just strike him with bottled lightning?”

“Sort of. It’s a stun gun I got off eBay and I have modified it to be charged up with a Helmholtz Generator. Packs a punch, eh? Turns the muscles to liquid;  makes everything let go. Look at the bulging seat of his duds, Old Man; in there is the last shit he’ll ever do.”

“I say, Holmes. You’ve fried the fukker. Was that really necessary?”

“Watson, you kind-hearted old fool; take a look at the middle finger of his right hand.”

“I say... it’s all…”

Yes, Watson – brown. In his haste to leave the dunny he wiped too furiously and poked straight through the cheap council date roll and he has ended up with Kamahl’s finger. So, when I saw that, and realised he was headed to the catering tent I knew he had to be stopped to avert a terrifying disaster. Can you imagine the havoc that would have been wrought if he had shoved that finger in the blue Smarties bowl? The Queen herself had dibs on them blue Smarties and she would have been struck down with the worst case of the Brad Pitts ever to blight a dimpled-dated Monarch in this era!”

“I say, Holmes….”

“I warned you, Watson…..”


“OOoooooohhhhh!  Groooaaannnnnghh!"

"Sorry, Old Man, but a promise is a promise. Now let me rub your poor little nadbag and then we'll go home and have a nice mug of hot cocoa and a fukken BIG snootful of drugs.”

Sample ImageThe Gov: Thursday May 9: They Might be Giants!!!

 Sample ImageThey Might Be Giants are John Linnell on keyboards and accordion and John Flansburgh on guitar, and their barn-storming live band includes Danny Weinkauf on bass, Marty Beller on drums and Dan "Solder" Miller on lead guitar. Linnell and Flansburgh became friends as kids in school in Massachusetts but only formed the band after moving to Brooklyn, New York.

With their minimal stage show and innovative Dial-A-Song service, They Might Be Giants were prime movers in the mid- '80s explosion of visual art, music, and performance art that put New York's East Village scene on the cultural map. "We're fully aware of the musical worlds both to the left of us and to the right of us - we've heard avant garde music, we've heard popular music," says Flansburgh. "That's given us the notion that we can be as original as we can be and still make worthwhile songs."

Be worried, be very, very worried.

North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-un warned everybody that he has more than missiles to chuck at the naughty peoples in the West and the East and the South and wherever.... See this photo for evidence:

Sample Image

The sheilas in high heels are scary enough – especially if those shoes have snow cleats on the bottom, they will really be able to git along the icy terrain to thwap the evil enemy with those furry pillbox hats – but it's the fukken Commando Chipmunks on the right of the photo that have me worried! Them and their fukken bicycles.

Commando Chipmunks with machine guns - on bicycles!

It's the secret weapon you stupid West-South-Easterners never dleamed of,” Kim Jong-un-who-doesn't-have-a-long-un said. “I rearn my take-over-the-world strategy from Mickey Mouse comics and learised the cuddly but amusing chipmunk could be a hiry-effective weapon against you frukken stupid people that I hate - especiarry liding their riddle bicycles while shooting machine guns; and my Commando Chipmunks are frukken vicious and hungry! You stupid tree-hugging obesities will go 'Ohhh, rook at the cute rittle chipmunk; have a peanut, ri'l guy'. And my little commando chipmunk frukkers will bite those pudgy fingers and then shoot their owners with their riddle machine guns and lide away quickry on their riddle bicycles.

They are nasty frukkers - jus' rike Hitler's war pigs; So... I call my commando chipmunk army – the Nutzies.”
