weeks ride was originally to be taken by our honourable Mr. Scripps
Esq. True to form, he was found wan*ing. So it was with great
honour that Stevie Calon stepped in to don the thong with a pong
and lead the ride. With very little time on ones hands due to long
hours working, I was also bestowed the great honour of putting pen
to paper to address the herd.

usual spread was greeted with delight and devoured by the hungry
herd. Awards were presented by Vice to OBE for rider of the month
and twat went to the default of Crock. Both deserved and both
were beaten with ease by Asha in show us how thirsty you are.
There was no game show this month as our leader was away catching
some rays in the sunny climes of North Wales. However, don’t be dissapointed,
OBE and crock will partake in the event next Wednesday. Don’t
