Playing a Carrom off another player or bystander was declared legal in the Australian Tests of '56, no matter the subsequent rioting.

Quite right. Funny thing is, you'll still hear some British blaming Eisenhower for Suez later that year.

Quote

King's Cross (Platform 9 3/4, to be exact)


Which brings us to . . .

Mornington Crescent.

Ah yes, Eisenhower's famous "Morning Croissant" malapropism... Its a good thing Stovalds does not allow acts of war as valid play - Britain was already in the nuclear club.

Yes! I was hoping someone would fall for that. That's THREE parallel shunts, so I'm well within my rights to invoke and AF DAVE reversal:

Hmmm. Farringdon, for reasons that will become apparent..

Sustained applause

(polite golf applause)

However, MC has been called, so we pick it up from Farrington, unless the call is challenged... anyone?

Anyway, it's a lovely day and I can see the glacier from my back window, so:

Thing about Pleistocene is, eventually all the colours get mixed together and you just have one brown mass.  Plus it tastes funny.

What? Oh. Never mind...

"Central line?"  Get it?  Play on words.  Pun.  Louis, where are you?

Seriously, I don't know why I continue to cast perls before sWine.

Once again I'm forced to drown my sorrows at the Merrie Go Downe on Gloucester Road.

Oh,

I notice us Colonials were spared the lash.

We're like the big, quiet, friendly guy in the corner at the party, that no-one ever really talks to, but he doesn't seem to mind, and is content just to  watch.

Dude, you can't go claiming that "Mudchute" was already played without accepting that "MC" was already played by Amadan. If your previous play of Mudchute is valid, so is Amadan's MC play. (viz. Crown v. Gandersauce, 1943, under Post hoc ergo propter hoc; quid pro quo; res ipsa loquitur; pax vobiscum).

Or, as Nietszche once said, "Mein Luftkissenfahrzeug ist von den Aalen voll."*

But that's put me in a fine pickle, hasn't it. I'm snookered... except... a-HA!

Headstone Lane!

(Wipes brow) Whew! Thought I'd have to go pan-dimensional, which is not only beyond my credit limit, it's also hard on the batteries.



*roughly: "Oh, God, not my in-laws again."

Your link contains errors.

For example: "arse over elbow", just no. The phrase is "you can't tell your arse from your elbow". It has nothing to do with falling arse over tit.

Rather than accuse Louis of derailerising the Official MC Thread, I propose we accept his "Deary Me" as a quaint Welsh spelling of Dagenham Heathway.

There is only one valid reply to Mudchute (according to the Loomis Twins).

Arsenal.

Hmmm... 3-point turns, is it?  Like backing the Cutlass out of the underground lot.  Buddy banged the front fender on a concrete pillar doing that once. Risky move, that.

However, no-one called AA on Louis' play to Holborn, so we can assume successful negotiation of the turns.

Okay, then.  Open Top and flat out to...

Hackney Wick.
