Dog walker finds British Economy in woods shock

A dog walker from Somerset today found the British Economy languishing in woods by a river.

Ms Lilith P. Stuff said "I can't say I was surprised. I am still in shock all the same...the dog ran up to it barking madly and I realised then that all hope was lost. I hear the driver, Mr G Ignominious Brown, leapt clear before impact, having looted the gold"

A typical day at work for Kev.

Is that where you got the material for poor old Mr Elbys steam driven hip? (+:

Brown was only supposed to blow the bloody doors off.

Caronte said...

You can tell it's the British Economy, it's gone off the rails...
[Welcome back, L]

As Beast suggests, good to see a pic of E-K's sled at last.

Don't blog and drive would seem to be the message here.

Tuscan Tony said...

Philippa - Marianne Faithfull, actually.

lilith said...

Actually Beast, we got the parts from here

lilith said...

Hahahaha Pip...that's right.

Thank you Caronte :-)

Kev has kept very quiet about this particular adventure TT.

I don't think Marianne would let Gordon.

idle said...

Is it salvageable, or a total loss?

lilith said...

Iders, there has been talk of recovering the wreckage, indeed notices of intent are posted all around, but no action otherwise....

Blue Eyes said...

Your pics have lifted my gloom somewhat, they show the economy is not nearly as bad as I thought...

Scrobs said...

Just another huge 'bogie' Lils!

Freight train blues - definitely...

lilith said...

I am so glad Blue Eyes! Something may be salvaged but it will have to be broken up, melted down and re shaped before it's any use.

lilith said...

Scrobbers, freight train blues indeed. Gordon Brown has treated the economy as a large bogie...chewed at it for a bit before smearing it on his tie.

I think it can be dusted down and rebuilt quite easily... cant it?

lilith said...

Bits of it Mutley, probably. There are two carriages (not shown) in the middle that are very twisted. I would have thought it's a write off, just from a safety point of view of sticking to the rails...

electro-kevin said...

Goddamit !

I knew I should have wound the parking brake on before I booked off.

Scrobs said...

Lils,

Link here to 'Freight train blues'...

I still squirm while recalling trying to remember all the words while playing at a Lady chum's 21st!

Really sad thing is that she and her sister died in the Hither Green train crash a few months later, and to this day I still wish I'd left that bloody guitar at home that night - everyone would have had a much better night...

What Kevin did not mention is that this is ALWAYS what happens when you forget to Paaaarrrp regularly.

lilith said...

Kev, suspicion was falling squarely at your well endowed door...

Thank you Scrobs...I think there will be a lot more hobos before long. I am so sorry about your friends but please don't squirm at your memory..it is precious. I hope you'll play it for me soon.

Nomad, inadequate Paaarrrrping is the cause of many accidents.

Trubes said...

I hope it wasn't Pig chasing a rabbit on the track that caused that Lils!

Di.x

How's Elby , Has he recovered from his 'op'? do hope so.x

fuchsia groan said...

Did they find a pen knife and a packet of paracetamol next to it?

electro-kevin said...

I've dedicated a post you both you and Calfy, Lils.

lilith said...

Trubes, I can assure you that Pig is an innocent party in all this.

Fuchsia, you made me laugh.

E-K :-) I am sure you could think of some good advice for Calfy to ignore...I have given her plenty...the worst advice I ever gave her was to give a false name if she was ever arrested....:-(
