    Sherlock Holmes was alright, i haven’t sat down and watched it, just seen it in work.

    The offender was awesome, it was yellowish smoke coming out of the microwave. I drop kicked it onto the street.

    Greetings Defenders,

    I drop kicked a poodle out my kitchen window once. It was about a minute before the first bounce. Shortly after that I lost track of it on the radar.

    I like your show.

    I like your voices.

    Hey Defenders,

    I remember vividly Johnny coming to work with me that day. There were some minutes of hesitation among a small number of my work colleagues, then someone asked me quietly if I knew that guy who had come in wearing nothing but boxers. I revealed that I lived with the gentleman in question, confessing that I didn’t think he was mad.

    I remember they spent some time asking me questions like “Was it for a bet or something?” and “But he must be mad, surely”. Having had my fun I eventually told them the reason behind the bare excursion and they admitted it was actually pretty cool, and I garnered respect by association.

    No joke.

    It’s a funny place, this world of ours.

    Adieu, Defenders,

    BCWS

    Re: the first second or so of audio

    I don’t know that I can forgive you. Especially with feckin earphones in!

    D’AARGH *twitch*

  • DaMofoArmadillo

    I concur with Ben, the first 2 seconds of audio made me hate life.

  • CosmicStresshead

    Hey Defenders,

    James, your brother’s clearly ungrateful for the second arsehole. I told everyone in my office that story, and it seems several of them know him. They hadn’t heard the story, and they’re gonna rally round and show him how he’s sitting on a big extra asset.

    HAHAHAHA ASSET! BOOM BOOM
