The Big Reveal – Roundabout of the Week – 28/03/2016

Clue 1, was a picture of acclaimed actress Patricia Hodge. Appeared in several productions with MK reference. Morse – Bletchley Park? Rumpole – CMK Court? Or Victoria Wood – now this could indicate a plethora of woods in MK. Could have just been there to throw you – or was it?

Clue 2, was someone being knighted. Sword? King? Noble? Clue 3 simply said name – hold that thought. Clue 4, showed a sprinter, finishing first in a race. First. Clue 5 was Terry Christian and Clue 6 was Lee Evans, but what did it all mean?

Well, what have we got so far? Patricia followed by a ceremony for nobles, making them Knights – or Sir, followed by ‘name’. Patricia’s ‘Sir’ ‘name’ is ‘Hodge’. Then you have Terry Christian, and the Christian name of number 6 was Lee, but Usain finished first, first could mean win, it could me 1 or, if it was the alphabet, could be a.

Put it all together and you should have had Hodge Lea Roundabout.


 

Tenuous Link – Antony Kay and a tub of lard

In which we, the overseers of all things related to the Dons, take two seemingly unrelated topics and show you how they are indeed related. This week, we’re going to reveal exactly how Dons defensive maestro and sublime tackler, Antony Kay, and a tub of lard are seamlessly entwined.

  • Antony Kay is a defender who hideously mistimed a tackle which injured a member of the opposing team
  • Not apologising for said foul isn’t an achievement to be proud of
  • Pierre-Joseph Proudhon was a French politician and the founder of mutualist philosophy
  • Philosophy is the study of the general and fundamental nature of reality, existence, knowledge, values, and reason
  • For no reason whatsoever, Roy Hattersley was replaced on the topical quiz show ‘Have I Got News For You’ by a tub of lard
  • And, finally, although it offered absolutely nothing to the game (apart from making up the numbers), the tub of lard was still invited back to play again the week after!

I thank you.

Modders.

Disgraced Olympic Sprinter Challenges Robbo Over Samir Punishment

Johnson Slur
Johnson Slur

This Just In – in what has been described as one of the most hypocritical attacks in recent memory, disgraced Olympic sprinter and drug-cheat Ben Johnson today launched a blistering attack on Karl ‘Robbo’ Robinson’s handling of the Samir Caruthers PissGate story.

In a plea published in today’s Milton Keynes Citizen, Johnson claimed that the Dons were ‘the most unpopular side in the UK’, that Caruthers was a ‘Disgusting Juvenile’ and that the Dons were allegedly ‘a family club’.

The MooCamp says “We won’t be lectured on morality by a disgraced drug cheat, so how about sorting that out first Mr so-called Johnson?  If you’re keen to have your views taken seriously, then how about popping back in time and not cheating in the 1988 Olympic 100m final first eh?  Get your own house in order Mr Johnson, then, and only then, you can come back and have a go at our fine urinating lads.”

We’d also like to gently criticise the lack of consistency used – reference to both Milton Keynes Dons and Milton Keynes Football Club in the same article breaks all established rules of franchise bashing.

(The reference to ‘splashed’ in the first sentence was quite funny though)

More on this once we’ve established when he moved from Canada.

Roundabout of the Week 19/03/2016 – The Reveal

Bottledump Roundabout
Some Bottles Today

Clue one was Black. Could this be indicating a colour, or nothingness?

Clue two was a picture of a crushed beverage lid, for a container made out of glass.

And, Clue three was a piece of discarded rubbish.

Now, if you put them all together you should have got a roundabout right on the outskirts of Milton Keynes on the A421, standing all alone – and it was obvious from the other two clues that it was Bottle Dump Roundabout!

No winners this week although a special mention must go out to Frank from Monkston for his guess of Dark Kerb Grass roundabout, although we’ve neither any idea where that is, or even what Frank was drinking when he sent in his guess!
