Once again reporters from your very own Desperate Readers
Chronicle were on hand to report on another story of mega
foaming at the mouth.
As always, reporters were working to produce another magazine
of mind numbing brilliance, the kind our discerning readership
has come to expect, when some of the team felt water lapping
around their feet ( I was thankful that my wheelchair kept my
feet above the fast rising waters). Fortunately ace photographer
Mike Gower (looks like another award ....eh Mike?) was on hand
to permanently record the event so that our children will be able
to know how it was that day.
A huge fissure had appeared in the wall between the office and
DIAL (the keystone of support we all knew.... but feared to mouth
aloud). Water, from a long forgotten underground stream, began
to seep through this fissure and a bucket was strategically
placed to collect it. Soon the trickle become a raging torrent
and the brave attempts of the bucketeer proved to be woefully
inadequate. D.R.C staff armed with mops and buckets formed a
human chain of bailers in the hope of stopping the building
filling with water (how we wished that we still had the old sash windows,
they could have been opened to let some of the water out).
All that remained was for the team of North Sea Oil scuba divers
to plug the stream and recover the valiant bucket.
The heroes who fought this battle are far too modest to brag but
we know who they are
THEY NOW HAVE WEBBED FEET.
a robed man putting animals into a
large boat in
Avenue should not be taken seriously.
What really happened: -- a small pipe leak.
