A girl with a quadrupal fanny
Went out with a bilingual tranny
But tranny Phil told me
All four of 'em's mouldy
On Britain's long reigning old queen

She's been to the doctor's appointments
And she's tried all the expensive ointments
But they're now all inflamed
He says the old cah's in pain
And now they're all oozin' stuff green

The Duke says the bloody green mess is
Gettin' on to 'is wife's royal dresses
And he likes wearin' her clothes
But 'e aint wearin' those
The duke says they need t' be cleaned

The tranny duke says he's now very worried
Well he's wonderin' now what he has married
Her fannies aren't smellin' pissy
He says they smell more like fishy
And out from one last night popped out a bream!
------------------------------------------------

There was an old harlot from Bedord
Who went to the local Esteddfod
But chaps who use pens
Tend to prefer men
So the old bag told them her name's Edward

There once was a girl from Shanghai
With a fanny the width of her thigh
She was a very shy girl
Quite hairy as well
And I'll always remember her eye

Her eye was a deep azure blue
She'd stick it on with strong super glue
And her wide fanny would smile
Or grin for a while
Then start suddenly spitting at you

Her fanny it had a long tongue
It would stretch all the way to her bum
Most Shanghai girls use a cat
Not hearsay, it's fact,
To lick their bums clean or else a nun

Those nuns from 'St.Lil's-on-the-hill'
Would enjoy it, they'd say it's God's will
Mind you that old Father Dobbs
He'd charge a few bob
Though he'd lick until he felt quite ill

A git on the Whitechapel Road
Was noisily chewing a toad
They're nice wiv french fries
Or baked in toad pies
Or in sandwiches just eaten cold

Yurrs ago outside old 'ackney dogs
There'd be Sid wiv 'is eels, toads 'n' frogs
Just sold from a stall
Long queues there annal
Yeah, old Sid fand 'em easy t' flog

All caught by 'imself from the Lea
And some winklin' at Leigh-on-sea
Yeah, that crafty old Sid
Made a fortune 'e did
Well he got the bleedin' fings fer free

Yeah, old Sid made a mint at that game
Sold in jelly or cooked over a flame
Mind you times move orn
Old Sid's well dead 'n' gorn
Now it's toad shish kebabs on Brick Lane!

Many years ago I remember a cartoon I saw in a newspaper (it wasn't a strip cartoon, each day the tabloids would have a few individual cartoons). Two elderly women were coming out from a cinema after having watched the film. Behind them are posters on the walls at the entrance to the cinema about the film - 'Fantastic', 'Best Film Ever', 'Not to be missed', 'A Masterpiece', 'Absolutely Brilliant' and so on. In the cartoon one of the women has her head turned to her friend. In her bubble she's saying to her friend the words, 'Not bad!'

Just sayin' !!!

Mine (so far) is; 'A Dog's Dinner 'Fit For A Queen'.
Both were well known expressions, and both fitted the content of the story. Praad of that I was/am!!!

Generally I try not to reveal too much to the reader with my story headlines (obviously means some visit points are lost). Hopefully those who do visit my stories then go away feeling glad that they did!

Thanks for putting in those links Chris (from what I've been reading on the Bad Romance forum it seems I'm not the only one who doesn't have a clue how to do links!) So thanks.

As for this Spanza47b story, you'll see now why I'd pointed out earlier that it's not really a 'romance' (good or bad) as such. And I do already have one entry in the 'Bad Romance' comp. (It could easily go on to become one though if the alien was to make another visit!)

On reflection I think EQ is definitely right. I think I just about got away with the monologue as Part One but was pushing my luck by making it into a lengthy four parter monologue. If I return to the character in future I think I'd be 'tightening the reins' so to speak.

Fun writing it though - and thanks to you Chris and the others who 5'd it - and thanks especially for all the comments. Would appreciate any overall comments actually. As Benny Hill would sometimes say,

'Learning all the time'.

As a comedy sketch(the way I was imagining it in my mind when writing it) Fred would be responding in non-speaking ways - facial expressions, concurring nods etc. This 'rambling-on' speaker is a character I'm now thinking I'd like to use in more stories like this one. If I can make it work as a single speaking role, well that would at least make it a little bit different to the Two Ronnies/Pete and Dud tradition. Early days with this - Spoof's 'Magazine' provides the ideal place to test the waters. But I do take your point Erskin.

I was in tears of laughter when writing parts of this story - a good sign(I hope!)

Skoob: You're definitely right - it's little 'Ronnie Corbett' innit! I honestly hadn't realised it until you said.

Thanks so much for those comments you lot. Had this one going 'rand in me 'ead' for a few weeks. I can see what you mean about Two Ronnies, Skoob - actually the person I was imagining saying the words when writing it was Dudley Moore, loosely based on the kind of sketches he'd do with Peter Cooke in the 'Not only...but also' TV program of the 60's. (very loosely based on that of course because in this case Peter Cooke would have to be a totally silent 'Fred' - don't fink Peter Cooke would have been able to manage that for long!)

Part Two's in approvals (had 6 reads but not 'in'!)

Four parts in all - as each goes 'in' I'll pop the next part into approvals.

Bad Romance? Wasn't sure if it would apply because it's not a romance as such. See what you fink after you've read the full story.

Thanks again - always hard to know how a story is going to be received. Inch - don't underestimate yourself mate!

Cheers guys.

Thanks All.

Adoxography!!!! As did Chris I also had to look that one up.
Glad I did - seems this particular form of writing traces back to as far as ancient Greece - and there'd been me thinking for years it was just that I was a one-off kind of twit!

Next time I'm asked in my local why I always wear a tunic and sandals I'll tell them about that word adoxography.

I remember the film Frenzy - Barry Foster took the part of the serial killer. It's been on TV a few times over the years. Haven't seen the thriller you mention though.

Seeing Frenzy being mentioned here got me to look around You Tube for videos about Hitchcock. Found an interesting black and white interview with him called 'Huw Wheldon meets Alfred Hitchcock' - it's in two parts. (I don't know the way to put a direct link to it here). It's an interesting interview with the great man himself from years ago. Well worth a visit.

Thanks for the fives - and especially for the comments.
I'd been taking my time with it so's to submit it as my 100th 'news' spoof story (not including my 'magazine' ones).

I had it ready several days before pressing it through - apart from that opening paragraph. It needed to 'read true', mention 'the condition', but not reveal 'shrinking' too early - or too late - in the story. I must have rewritten that first paragraph some thirty times.

Detrectandis: I was trying to find a Latin word for 'shrink' on those internet 'English to Latin' translation sites so that I could use it in the first paragraph. Closest I could find was 'detrectandis' (one of the definitions came up as 'reduce').

So glad that first paragraph caught you out Chris - made my week that has - Gotcha!
