    Posted on by

    The writing team behind this early Easter Special would like to point out that this episode was supposed to air at Christmas time as part of an effort to bring everyone’s Christmas spirit to an all-time low.

    Heaven or Hell I‘ve never believed in an almighty God and neither have I ever believed in Heaven or Hell. I’ve always considered that we make our own. Heaven as well as Hell can be found down here on our little planet. I’m not trying to get all philosophical on your arse, I swear (Pun… Read more »

    Stuck! Not having come across any more frozen corpses on the streets since my first encounter a couple of months back, I was feeling quite chirpy. I had survived camp.

    Over a week ago, I landed in former USSR, Moscow, Russia. What can possibly be said about this city that has not been said before? Oh! I know: IT SUCKS!   The women, elongated sticks figures with no souls, all suffer from the Carrie Bradshaw syndrome. As for the men, they have not yet discovered… Read more »
