Simon Pegg as Nick Angel, who is really E-K


Hot Fuzz is the true story of our very own Electro-Kevin. Based on E-Ks outstanding career in the Met and his subsequent transfer to the West Country, Hot Fuzz reveals the times before he was a train driver and Daddy and Husband.

Not to be missed. It's just so like that around here.

Ha ha ! They wouldn't let me near a gun - not without close supervision anyways. I did used to go down the ranges but developed a real phobia about blowing my own cock off with a Smith & Wesson 38. A bit like when you're near a cliff edge and you feel the urge to chuck yourself off ?(or is that just me ?) I did, however, become a crack shot with a Winchester rifle some years later. I Love things retro and the muzzle was further away from my cock.

I barely carried my truncheon let alone a gun in the police. I used to leave the station, go straight round to the newsagent - a packet of cheese and onion crisps hidden in my helmet and a Pepperami down my truncheon pocket and off to a friendly security guard's office for a cup of tea.

I did, however, get involved in about 5 real punch-ups in the police - two of those were with other coppers ! One was with a contract killer/gangster who I managed to nick single-handedly. There was only one instance where I felt I needed a gun and that was the the bearer bond robbery in the City where the gunman decamped down the tube; I went down there to search (I was on Zulu 9, an undercover car at the time) and did not find him, fortunately - I was shitting myself.

I was City Police BTW.

EK I can't believe you said COCK twice in that sentence. I think my panties are a little moist now.

I like the way he said "cock" twice, Ms Smack. There is something about "cheese and onion crisps hidden in my helmet" in the same sentence as "truncheon" too.

Don't believe him he is just being modest.

And there are some fantastic automatic rifle scenes!

The City police were OK by me E-K..I once witnessed a crazed bloke in the Monument underpass smack a woman full in the face. She was a stranger who happened to walk by him. He was cursing women in general and lunging this way and that. I followed him out of the tube. There was a copper at the exit and I pointed the bloke out and they charged him for terrifying me rather than punching the poor woman..she had rushed away. I was terrified, as both the nutter and I travelled to the Nick in the same van. I think he was on glue or crack. He got a conditional discharge but it was nice of the guys to let me know how it panned out.

Well I find it reassuring that men like EK are in the Police...

I'm not sure I want to know how his 'discharge panned out' Lilith...

Bit early for me ;0)
