Chinese Checkers (4/23)
Thu 11 December 1980
Our fearless Doctor has a sultana with fate, a couple of
prunes with nemesis and a date with destiny. And so he's raisin through the
heavens at the spud of light to keep his awful rendezvous.
Doctor, why are we keeping this awful rendezvous. Its cage is
really smelly and its fur's coming out all over the carpet.
I keep it for sentimental reasons Dana. My mother gave me
this rendezvous just before she crouched on the grand piano and went wicky
wacky fip, for the last time. Whenever I look at this old rendezvous of mine, I
think of Mum.
Was she smelly too, was she?
No, but her fur used to come out all over the carpet.
Are the rooster's kicked itself in the teeth has it, Denis?
That means we must almost be there.
How will we know when we've arrived Doctor?
O when we start making forty thousand a year and get to
appear on television every other day.
Oh in the paper are we? Let's see.
Ah, Lazlo Woffle's social column. Oo look Dana here it is...
Spotted, arriving at the Horses Arse Nebula last night with a
date with destiny, was one of the universe's most eligible bachelors, the suave
and debonair Doctor Pog. Oh dear. Accompanied by his beautiful assistant Dana
...and a large denim rat called Denis.
Doctor Pog is rumoured to be in town to do battle with the
evil Doctor Wee and save the universe from destruction. All proceeds will go to
charity. Hm, that's what he thinks. Stupid parasite journalist. Why can't they
ever spell our nimes cerroctly.
Well at least we know where we are.
Yes but where is Dr Wee?
There is a knock at the door
Door is opened
No but close.
Kevin, it's you. You had me worried.
Yes but don't forget, worry takes the closeness out of being Mum to Dr Poo-oo!
