    Methinks a new Eddie masthead may emerge - Correct?

    And - all due respect to Alan - will the banner come down now? A celebratory flag by all means, but we all associate that picture of Alan J with his imprisonment .....

    As long as it's not a message saying "PM: Now only available on digital radio".

    Did you hear that Channel Four Radio woman this morning saying she wanted the analogue radio signals switched off? Just so that we can have more commercial pap I suppose.

    Grrrr. Go on Eddie, cheer me up with your new top-of-page Thing.

    Don't you remember the warning in this song, Eddie?


    The Thing

    While I was walking down the beach one bright and sunny day,
    I saw a great big wooden box a floating in the bay.
    I pulled it in and opened it up and much to my surprise:
    Oh, I discovered a (ratatatat) right before my eyes.
    Oh, I discovered a (ratatatat)) right before my eyes.

    I picked it up and ran to town as happy as a king.
    I took it to a guy I knew who'd buy most anything.
    But this is what he hollered at me as I walked in his shop:
    Oh, get out of here with that (ratatatat)) before I call a cop.
    Oh, get out of here with that (ratatatat)) before I call a cop.

    I turned around and got right out a running for my life.
    And then I took it home with me to give it to my wife.
    But this is what she hollered at me as I walked in the door:
    Oh, get out of here with that (ratatatat)) and don't come back no more.
    Oh, get out of here with that (ratatatat)) and don't come back no more.

    I wandered all around the town until I chanced to meet,
    A hobo who was looking for a handout on the street,
    He said he'd take most anything - he was a desperate man.
    But, when I showed him the (ratatatat)) he turned around and ran.
    Oh, when I showed him the (ratatatat)) he turned around and ran.

    I wandered on for many years a victim of my fate.
    Until, one day, I came upon St. Peter at the gate.
    And when I tried to take it inside, he told me where to go:
    Get out of here with that (ratatatat)) and take it down below.
    Oh, get out of here with that (ratatatat) and take it down below.

    The moral of this story is if you're out on the beach,
    And you should see a great big box, and it's within your reach,
    Don't ever stop and open it up, that's my advice to you
    'Cause you'll never get rid of that (clap - clap - clap) no matter what you do.
    'Cause you'll never get rid of that (clap - clap - clap) no matter what you do.


    So, Eddie, do we need one of these, either on the Beach or elsewhere on the Blog?

    I hope it's something interactive. There's next years Sonys to think about.

    How about a PM game where you have to crash little animated Eddies into Big Ben, or 'dress the Carolyn' where you choose clothes, hairstyle, colours etc. How about how many jornalists can you squeeze into a glass box? Or best idea of all 'Run down Rippon' where you have to drive animated cars with PM people in and try and run Peter down.

    You could have a ticker, or a countdown clock to the next edition of PM.

    I bet I've wetted your appetite, so off you go. Feel free to use any or all of my ideas at no charge.

    Could it just be "EM" instead of "PM". Cult of personality and all that, don't ye know.

    Carl (10)

    "Dress the Carolyn"? Can we play the game in reverse please?
    Sorry...I'll take myself off to the naughty step now.

    Carl: I've already tried the 'Dress the Eddie' trick, but it didn't go down too well. And, Mr. Snow, don't even think of 'undressing the Eddie' jokes or Appy will be thumping the table.

    But, now that it's emerged, just how right that song was - It's a BOX!

    Carl (10): I am sure with subtle variation the dressing up game will have wide appeal.

    I like the idea od Run Down Rippon whihc sounds great fun, and perhaps in its other mode we could Run Down Roger, but obviously that would have to be a dog sled rather than a car.

    Well Mr Snow (12) I just keep imagining you're still Mrs Trellis and that puts a whole new slant on things......

    Sis (13), The table's bit punch drunk now. Do you think I should stop?

    Ben (15), I think mainly those who have bowel problems. Why do you ask?

    Admin Annie (16) A dog sled?
