You’re all a bunch of sock puppets!
“Peteb: the sooner SAPOL and FSSA tell us who the dead bloke on the beach was, the happier I’ll be. Everything else now is just a bunch of hands in socks going bla bla bla.” Nick (the Dome) Pelling. Cipher Mysteries.
Back in the day when a few of us blogged unrestrainedly on surfing matters, we used to challenge each other unmercifully and with vociferous intent, knowing that skins exposed to so many years of sun and salt water had thickened considerably. So I cannot let old Nick get away with such a poor opinion of our exemplary work without a modest response.
Pelling of course is widely known as being the compleat historical researcher; his work in that respect is admirable, add to that we exchange warm Christmas greetings every year. The only problem I have with the man is he hasn’t coffed up the £10 for an Australian rugby series win against the Poms in 2012.
