Going back in the thread slightly (and deviating from cats completely)
By a rather stranger than usual coincidence, I was listening to "world have your say" on the world service yesterday morning, and they actually read out a letter from "Admiral Ackbar". The program was about attitudes towards (mostly women's) dress in Turkey so 'Ackbar', probably sounded like a real listener. the presenter seemingly had no idea that it was a spoof, and maybe there really is an Admiral out there writing/emailing in...but....I doubt it.
(Incidentally, the letter was on the lines of "I like to run around in my pants and if I choose to do so, then I should be allowed to, etc etc).
Thank you for reading this far. Polorise et al - You can have your 45 seconds back now
EDIT : I checked the world service web site and found the text. Very good.

I have been known to walk around my neighborhood without pants. Why should I be prohibited from doing this? I am a city councillor and my constituents do not need some outiside authority telling what is proper and what is improper to wear!
