I'll just bet you googled up stuff, didn't you Dr Gray?


I take exception to that!

I'll have you know I googled up a wikipedia list of real war movies then messed with them a bit. It's harder than it sounds, you know. What with this tin leg and the wrong number of fingers. I died for people like you! Or was it the other way around?

Sorry to dissapoint you, its actually vynal siding!

And the trains always amuse me as they are mind numbingly long, I think I had one of my kids count to 104 cars once!
The graffiti amuses me almost as much as the street names. I kid you not there is a street here called "Detour"

As for the Oregon Vortex? would that be in Oregon? That would be a little out of my way. In fact I think England is closer to me than Oregon!

You could set it in Derby and then genuinely use the title 'Ice Cold in Alex'


'Albert, Our Hen' - about a superintelligent chicken, bred for it's cunning and mastery of disguise. It can in the blink of an eye disguise itself as a postbox.

'Reach for the Spies' - Douglas 'ol tin legs' Bader becomes a spyhunter, or indeed a spy.

'Reach for the Pies' - Douglas 'where's me legs' Bader develops pies with hidden listening devices that attach themselves to molars therefore relaying to Blighty all of the secret naughty Nazi plans.

'Peach for the Eyes' - Douglas 'slipper for christmas? WTF is the point in that?' Bader tries to find the right colour of paint for a portrait of Hitler, but is confounded by his colourblindness.

Douglas Bader HAS to be involved.
