I'm referring that post to the Press Complaints Commission on the grounds of plagiarism, and schadenfreude.

This turned out much better than it would have done if I'd have written.

Is Captain Cash still about? Perhaps Tim could write in and ask for the 24 euros it would take to secure this from Quality Chess.

I should also have acknowledged Rupert Murdoch for inspiration (and for doing more to degrade British cultural and political life than any other individual during my lifetime).

Super Caley go ballistic Celtic are atrocious! Come on ejh - even you have to admit it- that's classic.

By the way Timothy R Spanton is an anagram of I-Oh, My Pants TN - rot.

I'm sure someone else can do better. In case any older people don't know - pants is yoofslang for rubbish.

And also borrowed off, I think, a Mirror headline of the Sixties (when it was, I think, QPR who were atrocious).

QPR atrocious? Surely some mistake. Stan Bowles passes one defender, passes two, oh a lovely lob. Goooooooooooal!
