Yes it's Saturday and what, what, what !! - no football, surely this cannot be !!
Fortunately here's the alternative for those of you missing the big match on TV.



Football during the Lockdown video

For those that miss the football here's, edited highlights for tomorrows forthcoming Eurolockdown
Championship match between Portugal and Spain.

Eurolockdown match - Spain vs Portugal video

They say this is a test for tomorrows Super Sunday.
There is still live football in Belorussia. Aljaksandr Lukaschenka said, Corona is a psychosis.
The problem will be to get there, I suspect.

That's the country where the KGB is still known by it's original name.
It's a bit of carry on regardless in those hardline former Soviet Union republics, maybe had the same attitude
during the Chernobyl crisis.

Daleks will be allowed out and have unrestricted access while
attempting to invade London over the Easter holiday weekend

Attachment 139190
This is fake news.

I phoned the government, and asked what precautions they're taking against a Dalek invasion.

They told me steps will be put in place.

Re: Easter - where are you going?

I'm going on a cruise, got a great deal - buy one week, get 6 for free.

Just kidding, I'll spend this Easter on my balcony drinking alone, like every other inspiring hero.

Re: Easter - where are you going?

I went to the kitchen today. Marinaded some chicken legs in a paste mixed with yoghurt for Tandoori and prepped the ingredients for a mushroom and spinach biryani, then I made minestrone soup. Got my exercise in at the same time by dancing to Otis Redding. Afterwards had a go at OHs hair with clippers. Multitasking at its finest.


Tomorrow morning I might get up and pogo to Plastic Bertrand's Ca Plane Pour Moi or shake like crazy to the B52s Rock Lobster whilst still in my PJs. I might even decide to Rock the Casbah or maybe even do all 3. Works for me every time

I phoned the government, and asked what precautions they're taking against a Dalek invasion.

They told me steps will be put in place.
“Hey, if you have the ability to fight back, no big deal, right? If you can stop the Dalek before it can try to kill you, you'll be fine. Only you can't. Because the Daleks have, for 100% of their history, been developing weapons that are better than yours, labeled properly as *Trump health advisory warnings” today (at least in certain Nations).

Finding ways of killing that are more sophisticated than yours, and becoming much, much better trained than you. They have all the answers just in in their brain, and don’t even need the advice of minions like medical experts.

You cannot match the firepower of the Daleks because you want to do things other than fight - you, and your species, want to discover the universe, create technology that makes life easier, richer, and makes you something other than a Psychopath leading a nation, and rather something more like a God. And do all the other things that a peaceful civilization does. You cannot fight the Daleks and win unless you become exactly like the Daleks (and then, I ask you, what is the point of winning?)

You cannot escape their genocidal rage, you cannot appeal to their mercy, and you cannot fight them. The Daleks are unstoppable, and they are coming to kill you. That is what makes them dangerous

Sorry, think I’m getting over-informed lately, and I apologise that this may have been adapted to resemble certain living characters

Alright! I just have gone back to my childhood, I cooked a traditional school canteen staple, I am excited. Easter style.
