The following email arrived at the Mr Carruthers Presents domicile and we aren't entirely sure as to its authenticity:


Good day and compliments. This letter will definitely
come to you as a huge surprise but I implore you to
take the time to go through it carefully as the
decision you make will go off a long way to determine
the future and continued existence of the entire members of my Family.
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr.(Mrs) HAJIA Abacha,
the wife of the late Head of State and Commander- in- Chief of the Armed
Forces of
the Federal Repulic of Nigeria, Gen. Sanni Abacha,whom died of heart attack.

My ordeal started immediately after my husband's death
and the subsequent take over of government by the last
administration. The present democratic government is
determined to portray all the good works of my late
husband in a bad light and have gone as far as
confiscating all my late husband's assets, properties,
freezen our accounts both within and outside Nigeria.
I am writing this letter to you, my son Christoph
Abacha is undergoing questioning with the government.
All these measures taking by the past/present
government is just to gain international recognition.
Me and the entire members of my family have been held
incommunicado since the death of my husband, hence I
seek your indulgence to assist us in securing some
funds. We are not allowed to see or discuss with
anybody. Few occassions I have tried travelling abroad
through alternative means, all failed.

My late husband has FORTY million US DOLLARS
($40,000,000.00) specially preserved and well packed
in trunk boxes of which only my husband and I knew
about it. These packages are been deposited with a
security company without anybody knowing the contents
of the packages, because it was declared as photo
materials and other personal effects. It is packed in
such a way to forestall just anybody having access to
it. It is this sum that I seek your assistance to get
out of Nigeria as soon as possible before the present
civilian regime finds out about it and confiscate it
just the way they have done to all our assests.
On your consent, e-mail via the under listed contact
immediately for further discussions and clarification.
Bearing in mind that you may assist me, I have decided
to part with 15% of the total sum.Your URGENT response is highly Needed.

Yes, there is a need for us to see before the transferbut the reason why i needed the account is to get theapprovalof the paymentso that we can be 100% sure ofthe payment before our meeting.
I received the account but the Address of the bank isnotthere so send the address of the or state asfollows,

A/c number.
Beneficiary name
Bank name.
Bank address.
Your postal address.

I wait the complete account informations.

All corespondence must be forwarded to my Family confidant and
representative Mr.CARRUTHERS on his e-mail address:
( security and confidential reasons.
May Allah show you mercy as you do so,
Yours Truly,
Dr.(Mrs) MARIAM Abacha.

What shall we do? Is it our duty to help? Would $6,000,000 come in handy? The answers to some of these questions are on their way as we ruminate and debate the merits of parting with our hard-earned.

Blue movies

When you and your partner have finished watching the likes of To The Manor Porn, maybe you'd like to get your thwack on to something a little more hardcore.
She'll blue your mind.

Eee by gum

Did you know: e is short for MDMA, which in turn is short for MethyleneDioxyMethAmphetamine?

Winners don't don't drugs. Or if they do, then odds are, the losers have probably done even more drugs. But it would seem, drugs or no drugs that spelling champions the world over would struggle with Methylenedioxymethamphetamine.

They party hard.

Stick to where you know

It's nice to see a house with character.
Of course, this house has all the character of a stick man.

A stick man with a lovely home I'm sure. A stick man with his own hallway, kitchen, lounge, study, bathroom, wc, loftspace, garage, airing cupboard, master bedroom, mister bedroom, mistress bedroom, mattress bedroom and planning permission for a third dimension.

I love what you've done with the place. You did what you were told.

It never did go so well.

This painting of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington by Goya was stolen from the National Gallery in London in the early sixties.

Specifically the nineteen sixties.

The Iron Duke turned up on the set of Dr. No, the first James Bond film. It disappeared again for many years before reappearing in 1987 at a bus stop in Crewe with the following written on the back:

"Beware the masked rhododendron"

The Three Chairs

There along the wall stood three chairs:
The first chair was too big. It was too high, much too high.

The second was middle-sized, but it was too wide, much too wide.

The third chair was a cozy little chair which was just right.

They're more scared of you...

...than you are of them.

Don't worry about it, they aren't looking at you.

OK, maybe they are, but you don't stand out.

OK, maybe they are. Yes, yes they are. Well, don't draw too much attention. OK then, try and draw less attention. Be non chalant.

No, don't pick your nose.

Head office until the inevitable gardening leave.

Don't wink at the audience, then they'll know you aren't one of them.

Wear something that won't make them look you in the eye.

Iain Lee is a Cunt

The ex-11 o'Clock Show & RI:SE rent-a-twat apparently googles his own name with an additional word, perhaps in the hope of finding a googlewhack, perhaps in the paranoia that the dissenting voices might be right.

At the time of going to press 45,700 people had taken the time to call Iain Lee a cunt, which to be fair to him is quite an achievement. It is after all more than half the number that feel the same way about Adolf Hitler and he pushed more than a couple of noses out of joint.

Well it's 45,701 now.

Hiding in plain sight

As long as the audience don't suspect you, you'll be OK.

Just don't wear anything conspicuous.

OK, now this time you'd have to have a heart of stone not to wave.
