Except for the state traitor Boutros who must be hunted down before his seditious ideas spread.

I can't imagine anyone giving you another chance, either.
[Deposits link, ducks, and runs away.]
OK I'll give a bonus star to anyone who features Mr Snowden in a neat-o submission. It had better be good, mind. The bar has been set very high now.
Two stars if you can combine Winbledon with it as well.
I reckon "Arthur" is just the front name for a massive corporation with a high-rise office block stuffed with teams toiling away dreaming up Neat-O submissions. All on productivity bonuses.
If I don't get stars then I'm not playing anymore. Deal with it.
"... then I'm not playing anymore"
Well, now that the neato competition has almost completely overshadowed any attempt at
amusing spoof news articles
(memo to self - check registration status of Neat-o-biscuit.com), the neato has a high profile indeed amongst those of us hardy bunch that remain in the post-haroldian
I therefore feel some pressure to mark this passing of the baton as a formal process rich in pageantry and new-tradition-in-the-making.
Who knew that one neato could link to so many varied topics? We've had :
Pocahontas, dogging, jelly, prude, badgers, toast, Heston Blumenthal, homophobes, muslims, parachutes and Somerset.
Now THAT's a news story! Look out for the Daily Mail exclusive just as soon as I've made it up.
Once again Arthur has been... prolific... and wins the award for abundance.
Well done. I shall henceforth refer to you as Fecund Arthur.
(Arthur, my favourite of your submissions was this one :
Some notable favourites are :
Uproar over revised English county boundaries : Now Somerset square
Trendy set "square" says even trendier retro set
Mandelbrot set square up against Euclidians in mathematician’s fight club
But this week's winner is the very silly :
'Fears grow as search for missing set square becomes "protractored" '
So well done to M Cholet, and give my regards to your lovely wife.
Thank goodness the week has come to an end, and we have a conclusion to the current contest. This episode has seemed even more "protractored" than the pending demise of the not-quite-late-but-definitely-behind-schedule Nelson Mandela, peace and blessings be upon him.
