So, Mark, decided to throw in with the mutineers, eh? I'll not stand for this! Having said that I will sit down. That half Nelson sounds painful? - can I opt for, say, a quarter Nelson? That's either a grip around my ankle or time for scones, one or the other.
Mike, I'm remaing 'mum' as to what Phil left me with plus my stand on the Californian issue. (In his best Peter Lorre voice: 'You don't unnerstan'! I haf friends on both SIDES!')
Mo, - Soooo, you think Pat...er, I'VE been replicated, cloned, replaced if you will, by a sinister, albeit omnipotent, power answerable only to itself, without any reason, without any responbility and vouchsafed upon this planet with only one purpose in mind - Uuuh, no, it's me!
John, I had no idea you were THAT old! And don't worry - when Phil asks for my report on each member, you'll get good marks. You WILL still be nice to me after he returns, right?
Best wishes to all,
