Tag time

I have been tagged, apparently. Not once, but twice: first, by Miss Lucy Fishwife (a most unfortunate name) and next by Mr Gadjo Dildo. Having prevaricated long enough, I have today decided to 'take the plunge' as it were. It's either that or tell you the Virger's All Saints Day joke. So here goes. I am required, under the terms of this game, to reveal six random facts about myself. Here they are:
  1. It involves sustained use of the diaphragm, with which the girl regularly struggles;
  2. Mr Anthony Wedgwood Benn, and his son Hillary Wedgwood Benn;
  3. Approximately six and a quarter inches (in my stocking-ed feet, that is);
  4. Mind your own bloody business;
  5. The Head Virger's ferret, allegedly;
  6. Never, not even on a Sunday!

There. Having thus disharged my duty, I reluctantly suggest the following people pick up the baton: Mr Bones, Mr Fogey, Miss Laureate, Mr Saw, Brother Tobias, and Sir Monocle.

You forgot "Lymeswold. All the others are cheeses."

Where do I find the full 'rules'?

Gadjo Dilo said...

Are all six quotations from the Carry On version of the old testament?!

(I still maintain that it should be "verger", by the way.)

Kitty said...

If I knew what the questions were, I might make an informed judgement on your answers. However, making up my own questions was fun.

Oh, and I didn't know before today that you liked to wear stockings :-O x

Sir Monocle said...

I'll set pen to paper.

Though, perhaps we might invite our scrumptious friend, miss cake lady? My monolcle just fell off thinking about it.

I think the next 'tag' should be to provide the most amusing questions for Can Bass's answers! (You sound as if you've started, early Kitty!)

I believe the rules (such as they are) appear in full on The Dotterel's blog, Mr Saw.

Tenon_Saw said...

The reply is up! http://consolemutterings.blogspot.com/2008/11/meme-tag.html
(oops I previewed it and it didn't appear - maybe you have to approve the comment)

Can Bass 1 said...

Well done, old chap! I don't have to approve anything, least of all the comments people choose to post. I'm just happy to read them. (And equally happy to read you're list, of course!)

Leni Qinan said...

Goodness me!
(*racks her brains to find out what the questions are*).

PS.- Good music! It was easier to play it than to think of the questions!

Mrs Pouncer said...

Mr Bass! Not for the first time, I'm attracted by the cut of your jib. And being a woman of cosmopolitan - not to mention catholic - tastes, I know exactly what the questions are. CLdeM Pouncer

Sir Monocle said...

Hey - how'd you attach the sound file? Not only can you bass, you can sing too. Nice pipes, my man!

OK, we've waited long enough: what is the verger's All Saints' Day joke?
