after a week out without NB (or even much Internet), I rather enjoyed JH's bedroom warlords article. Whoever waded through all the other stuff to pick that one out, top marks.

ah, cheers Squudge, appreciated. Glad you enjoyed it.
I always look out for Jesus.
Always good value.
I've been following him and the family for ages.
When's the next book coming out?
You did promise.
The Bible II: The Later Years, will be hitting shelves soon, Gerontius. You heard it here first.
Will it be all gritty and northern? Mary Magdalene gets stoned in a scene that Quentin Tarantino would balk at, because a politician threw the first stone. Later, Jesus takes at least 6 days to die after being gaffer-taped to the cross after Health and Safety forbid the use of nails to prevent the blood-injury/HIV risk to the romans. Who later receive counselling.
Sorry - jetlag makes my brain go all spongy.
It'll definitely have a northern twist, you can be sure of that - it's all I know. The characters just need to man-up a bit, drink bitter and put more gravy on stuff. it'll be based in Daresbury, just on the outskirts of Warrington, not in Judea or anywhere boring like that.
It'll be tough getting in the Jewish aspect from the original.
Jesus, have you ever thought of doing a Call of Duty/Remembrance idea? You seem to have a good take on this.
British Legion to honour Call of Duty Dead in next year's Remembrance ceremony...
could go either way. Middle aged men having heart attacks in front of their wide screens, and virtual soldiers expiring in pools of digital blood...
Or has it been done? Once more a joint effort is called for.
That is a great idea. The subject worries me a bit, though. It's difficult to take such a sensitive topic like that and try and make it funny without offending lots and lots of people - you know how passionate those COD fans are.
Could I just say that Daresbury is South Warrington, and therefore a bit gay. Or is that homophobic as well?
Yeah, it's nice to get the perspective from just outside the war-zone, so to speak, yet close enough to smell the decay.
I worked in Warrington for a year or so. Driving round the Daresbury roundabout was the highlight of my day.
