Please, gentlemen, I'm not a puppet.

Scrobs... said...

Nick, that's a good'un!

Reminds me of a chum who used to get in his cups, and quote...

"My Scout is out; he is never in, he looks so pale and thin!"

And we all wept into our pints for some reason or other...

Do you know that one?

Scrobs... said...

Pips, especially with what he's got hold of, that would make his eyes water as well!

Nick Drew said...

I have wept into my pint many a time and oft, Scobs (most recently during an episode of The Thick Of It)

but never on account of that one

I am probably being thick myself

"Don't worry about looking soft, Smithers. I've got a bear behind."

"I never got to finger a girl, Carruthers. Hence the bear. Wonderful, doancha knoww?"

Scrobs... said...

Nick, extensive research over a period of several days, (five minutes Google), has shown the poem to be thus...

" My scout
Is out.
My scout is never in.
I am growing very thin,
And pale--"

It was apparently a parody by John St. Loe Strachey which he wrote when he was at Balliol.

So there we have it!

Elecs, clever, thoughtful, and a good play on words!

Anon, well, I don't know what to say...!
