Has a winner not been chosen yet? Is there still hope????

Ed said...

The verdict is not in yet.

There is a man in white who keeps insisting that the defendant might be innocent...

The standard was so high that a certain amount of agonising is to be expected. Even reducing to a shortlist was not easy.

Sssshhhhh!

Hi there, and a Happy New Year to you all. Have you managed to whittle down to a shortlist?

Apparently, I should not be surpised if I do not win. I am a legend but sadly, only in my own lunchtime.

Judge John Deed said...

Order in the public gallery. The jury is sequestered.

the longer the delay, the longer i can fantasize about how my lips would caress the prize mug. any suggestions as to what the first drink should be from it?

Unless I win, hemlock.

We are quietly confident that Mrs Gladys Abanjo's stirring tale He made tables for the Romans might bring home the mugs to our fellowship evenings which are rounded off with a nice cup of tea. If it be His will, then so be it.

Praise be!

I think you'll find, Mr Olio, that the mugs will be going to St Cedd's in recognition of Michael McMichael's Mary, the World's Mother.

Reading is the refuge of the indecisive and the lost.

I must protest at your willingness to publish Ms Pomp's wild generalisation. I had to read it ten times or more to determine whether she is being malicious or merely deluded.

If she thinks Reading is the refuge of the indecisive or lost she should go and have a look at Maidenhead or Slough.

K. Livingstone (assistant to the P.M.) said...

I'm very surprised that such an eminent person as Jurgen Council should be so high-handed and prejudiced as to turn up his nose at the prospect of visitors of any stripe. I can assure any of the indecisive or lost that they will find a warm welcome here in London, not least in my own dear Brent, which has the highest number of indecisive and lost of any borough in the country. I expect Jurgen has had his head turned completely around by the Daily SS or its ugly sister the Daily Blackmail, with their hysterical raving about deluges of bogus indecisive and lost flooding our shores.

white smoke has been seen emanating from the special chimney setup at herald house.

Monsignor Bruce Montefiore said...

White smoke, you say? White smoke?

Ah but what'd I say if I didn't say that Michael McMichael had the mugs in the bag? I shall tell Michael this instant that on this Sunday next we'll be a-quaffing just a little of the Communion wine from Ed's mug, so we will.

(Many thanks to St Jude)

yes, either there's a result, or somebody in there is puffing an unprecedented amount of crack. they're probably just waiting for confirmation of some details.
