Oh dear. I fear this post may have have been adversely influenced by far too much Wadworth's Dray Bells and Sharp's Doom Bar, followed by that Argentinean Malbec I had in the cupboard which was far too good to be shared with relatives due to arrive on Monday who wouldn't appreciate it like I do. So I had to drink it myself. Oh well, here goes ...
Thanks to everyone, I love you, you're all my best mates, all of you.
Some excellent subs including serious punnery this week, kicked off by Bourbon and carried on by Malgor and Psycadelic Squirrel amongst others, good stuff.
Credit to Malgor too for the limerick, a much under-used vehicle of comedy in my view, for the sub linked to a real if slightly unbelievable real news story about a tortoise and a sex toy.
But my alcohol-affected verdict which I know I'm going to regret in the morning but seems like a good idea right now is ...
Honourable mention - weematt with the ticker about sleepless hedgehogs due to global warming - nice angle.
3rd place - Button with the Brian Blessed musk article. Rather tenuous link with the Neat-O subject but nicely-written and funny whether you're sober or hammered.
Runner-up - Squudge with the idea of Winterlude for the Elderly. Great last line in particular, and rather believable which is always a good sign of decent satire.
Winner - Jeni B/Perks for the completely contrived but very funny High Bear Nathan sub. Started well (in a terrible groany kind of way) by Jeni and developed very well by Perks, and a clear winner in my (poisoned) mind, congrats.
I'll leave you two to fight over the Neat-O baton while I fall asleep in the armchair for the third Friday running.
