Good one.

I'm still hoping that Flying Saucers From Hell will get another look-in at some point.

Stop now, before it all gets out of control and someone gets hurt.
by the by I have taken a sacred oath that I will never again publish a book with a punning title.
It can be done.
I will take suggestions though.
The next book is going to be about the secret technology of the Second World War. All those weird and wonderful things like The Listening Ear and the bouncing bomb taken that little bit further. And so how the war was really won and things of that nature. Wonderful MAGICAL things of that nature.
So, on your marks.....

Blimey, hello Dave, how are things on the other side of the world? I was there a couple of years ago and got married by Elvis. Who looks younger every year.

I just had a dream about the bouncing bomb. In the form of my bright yellow swimming towel. But I don't think that helps. And don't ask about the bin-liners.

Anyway, you'll not be wanting any of these:

Crave her Name with Pride
A Bridge too Fat
Dent the Bismarck
Von Ryan's Shunter
Reach for This Guy
Bridge on the River Thames
Empire of the Son
Captain Corelli's Aunty Lyn
Catch-23 or 634 Squadron or Stalag 18 or U572 1/2
Guadalcanal Dairy [ouch!] or The Wooden Cow
Run Silent, Run Screaming

Tora! Tora! You're tea's ready luv.

hmmmm,

The day a German blew up my socks. (or off!)
Arrrrrgh! A bomb!
Can't we just arm wrestle instead?
You fool! the enemy's over there!
All there is to eat, is luncheonmeat
my general turned into a goat
The BBB (Bouncing Bombs of Bavaria)
I'll have to think some more, but they may get stranger.

World War 2 Brentford 3 is actually an away win on the pools coupon by the way.

If you use that it would certainly be my claim to fame!

Any chance of me being a mad scientist who meets his end in a dark alley way?

Four Pints! You lucky bastard! I have just checked out your website and you live in a white log cabin and amuse yourself by photographing graffiti on passing trains. You lucky bastard, I want to move in next door, how did you swing all this?
Come back to England and fester like the rest of us. By the by, have you visited the Oregon Vortex?
