Bursting at the Seams — Tony Rogers


Some letters from the mailbag, starting with one from Percy of Putney who’s had a brainwave:

Why not invite pseudonymous contributions of original Dreadful Doggerel? Then, once there have been, say, a dozen printed, readers could be asked to vote on their ghastliness: from an A for extremely vile to a Z for uncommonly tolerable, i.e. the worse the verse, the better the letter.

Bikwil herewith adopts the idea: we welcome with open pages all your awful ditties. Meanwhile, Percy himself promises to have something appropriately hideous ready for our next issue.

Another reader, Wireless of Westmead writes:

I was intrigued to read in Bikwil’s first Web Line about Deb and Jen’s Land O' Useless Facts. However, as I am not connected to the Internet, I cannot benefit from such desirable knowledge. So would you mind telling me (a) Wilma Flintstone’s maiden name, and (b) what does occur when you feed Alka-Seltzer to a seagull?

Helping anyone who lusts after unusable info suits us just fine. But bear in mind that Bikwil can’t guarantee the accuracy of these facts. If they turn out to be wrong, blame LOUF. Anyway, the answers you crave are: (a) Wilma Slaghoopal and (b) its stomach explodes.

Bikwil has exploded too — to 16 pages. Whacko-the-did!
