image for Local Man Disappointed By Dallas Cowboys
That's Not John Wayne! WTF!

Local man Martin Shuttlecock could barely conceal his bitter disappointment this evening when he tuned in his HD TV hoping to see a movie double bill and found that the show was a sports programme featuring NFL teams Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings.

"I wasn't expecting that," he told us. "I thought it was going to be a film about Vikings, like that one with Kirk Douglas in it, where he only had one eye. After that I was looking forward to a western with John Wayne or Clint Eastwood or somebody similar..."

"It was my fault," Anne Shuttlecock interjected. "I just heard the announcer mention Cowboys and Vikings, so I told Martin there was a double bill on. Probably Kirk Douglas in an eye patch and a western. I thought it would be a treat for him to watch in HD. I suppose I should have checked the TV Guide properly."

"Too bloody right you should," Martin Shuttlecock hissed. Like an angry snake. Sort of. "Can you imagine what a shock to the system it was? I mean, I was all warmed up ready for Kirk and the Duke, and what did I get? I'll tell you what I got. Bloody outsized Yanks in helmets and shoulder pads lobbing a lump of pigskin about. And adverts every 20 seconds. Not a sodding longboat or a gunbelt or a ten gallon hat to be seen. Anywhere. What a load of shite."

It is anticipated that Martin Shuttlecock will sulk like a spoilt brat for a period not exceeding 36 hours. Anne Shuttlecock threw the dinner in the bin and burst into tears.

Aaaaaah.

More domestic bliss as we get it.
