Bum note



Well here's that ransom note everyone's been speculating about. I was meant to put it on here a couple of days ago, but it blew away in the wind. Fortunately Chris sparrow found it up his tree a couple of fields away this morning.

What do you think? Is it genuine? I'm not even sure it looks like Bernard myself, it looks more like King Charles the First with that silly haircut. Unless of course Bernard's been roughed up and he's let his hair go a bit. He always looked after his curly locks that Bernard, you rarely found him far away from a bottle of shampoo and conditioner. Or pants.

I have my suspicions and I reckon a certain pigeon is having me on. Anyway £1000 is a lot of money for a turnip, or even a goat and we've got Harold now anyway, so we're not likely to cough up that sort of cash.

we're having a big meeting tomorrow in the barn to see what we can do. I'll let you know the outcome. I like meetings, we always end up having a brilliant disco after with a finger buffet.

Ooh! Ooh! Can I come? I love finger buffets!

This definitely isn't Bernard. Bernard never had hair or a goatee like that. It doesn't even look like a turnip. More like a pizza base with a face drawn on it. However, if it is our goat, we can supply one ton of pigeon food because pigeons eat rubbish, don’t they?

Please can I come to the party? Fat Tony never takes me anywhere posh.

Gertie said...

Begging your pardon Derek, but what is that on the poster, a tree trunk cut in half with a wig on? Come on, this is Fat Tony we're talking about here - a deranged Pigeon who thinks a random turnip is talking to him because *he's a mentalist*!!

Molyan said...

Now I'm confused. I thought I knew what a turnip looked like... the world is changing around me. I can't cope.

Fat Tony said...

Coping with a changing world is difficult. Like when the kebab shop changes into a pizza parlour. No wonder my feathers drop out.

Molyan said...

Crikey, that is a big change.

Ricky Wilson has an amazing changing foot. One minute it's okay - the next minute he's torn his ankle ligaments. Poor dude, that's the second time this year.

*cries*

I notice Fat Tony didn't stay on topic and mention anything about Bernard....

Menaceman said...

WHAT!!!? Who let you in here?

Paws said...

Get outta here, salesperson! Nobody likes spam!

Derek said...

Mmm... spam and turnip sandwiches... loverly!

Hey, you have a nice blog here! I'm going to bookmark you!

I have a magician blog. It pretty much covers magician related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Paws said...

Anyway, moving back to Bernard, how did the meeting go, Derek? Did they have any chocolate fingers?

PS. In case anyone is confused by the above comments, some idiot posted a lot of spam here but Derek deleted all of it.

Paws said...

RIGHT, THAT'S IT! HOI, YOU! ANONYMOUS! STOP POSTING SPAM! WE DON'T WANT YOU TO POST RUBBISH ON THIS SITE SO COULD YOU PLEASE GO AWAY!

Gertie said...

SPAMMERS, THIS IS THE BLOG OF A SHEEP AND COMIC CHARACTER. WE AND OUR READERS, HAVE NO INTEREST IN FISCAL POLICIES AND TIMBER. GO AWAY BEFORE I REPORT YOU OR SOMETHING.

Derek said...

Blimey! you go away for five minutes...

I'll update on the brilliant party later on. I've been very busy the last couple of days, sorry about that.

Fat Tony said...

Me and the Doctor's Assistant had lots of nasty spammy stuff too. I ripped it up and used it to line my nest.
I'm saying nuffink because I'm worn out. Keeping this vegetable entertained is a full time job. I'd no idea goatkeeping was so difficult.

Derek said...

Thanks Tony.
We're onto you by the way!

Is it me, or is that magician blog genuine? It looks good to me ! I love magic tricks and am always impressing the ladies with my mental dexterity.

Welcome Mr. Magician!!

Derek said...

You know that blue strip at the top of the page? And at the right hand side it says "next blog" and you get a random blog? Well it turns out that I'm today's random next blog!! Hooray! It's happened a few times before, but I've never been spammed from it before.

It's so exciting.

Gertie said...

If it's a genuine blog, wooo. However if it's a Spammers, rah!!!! Feel the wrath of a dead Goldfish.

Fat Tony said...

Go Gertie Guppy! Yar boo sucks to all spammers!

Menaceman said...

Yeah! Down with spam! You know the meat kind? Does it stand for Secially Packaged American Meat? That's what I heard once.

Paws said...

No, Spam stands for Smelly Pieces of Awful Meat.

Fat Tony's updated his blog again. If we wait, Bernard will eat Tony out of nest and home, and he'll give up. Or we could just storm the base. It's your call, really.

Paws said...

Hooray! Another F.T. update! AND we have a new ally! All we have to do is just sit back and let Mole do the rest.
