Megazine Letters. - You! Me! Milkshakes!

You! Me! Milkshakes!

 
Please can you vote for your bestest letter in July?
The closing date for all the votes is 23/8/2008.
Please vote!

1.Manic.

I was almost a member of the Manic Street Preachers. All I had to do was get to the auditions. My father was meant to bring me on the back of his motorbike but he'd ran out of petrol and I missed it. Motorcycle Emptyness! I became a real manic street preacher. I preach about tarmac. I haven't washed in two weeks.

Paddy Irishman.

Please, no need to go down that road, Paddy.

2.Date me.

"To get Junior Minister on your phone, just text YOURSAY to 84300 for a free mobile web link. Get the latest saucy pictures, gossip and, of course, voice clips from the 'man' himself.
Sorry, I forgot what number the dating page was on Teletext. Umm, er...

Junior Minister.

Saving the videos for the premium service?

3.Lionel and Guy.

Ghee: a clarification.
I have this embarrassing problem. It started when I saw Chris Kamara on the telly and announced to the world that he looked like Guy Richie, the really creepy guy who stalked blind girls and sang at them. Of course, I didn't mean Madonna's (exist) husband, but who cares? They both suck.

Elden Ray.

Lionel Richie may well turn into this year's Stephen Fry at this rate.

4.Soapbox.

There should be a cull on Emmerdale. Rather than decide who to kill, they should kill everyone bar the animals. Imagine the stories! Sheep having affairs with cows, pigs with eating disorders, murderous chickens, sexually confused donkeys. The list is endless! One dilemma though, does Diane count as a person or an animal, as I'm not sure turkeys are able to run pubs.

One Winged Angel.

I'm not sure the soaps pages would appreciate you as we do, OWA.

-----

5.Paddy.

There was a young Ziner called Paddy,
A likeable, ludicrous laddy,
I wrote him a verse,
Though timid and terse,
They decided it's probably racist to write limericks about irishmen so edited it to a Last Line May Be Huge poem. I sent it to Zine hoping it could contribute to my own competition to make a day in which Mondo does not appear on Zine.
Where's my caddie?

Vigilante Minstrel.

Mondo, ye be banished! For a day.

*Please vote!

Colin -

 
My letter didn't win on its own merit but on the day-long cultural phenomenon it caused.
