Congrats Mark on the milestone. Who has the record for quickest 1000, 2000, or 3000 posts?

Maybe Foul can give you a supplementary title for geting there so quick: something along the lines of "square-eyed, bloody finger stumps collector"
:lol:
Seriously,

excellent work and great contribution mate.

I think Foul should give him the honorary title of "Shrew's Bane", "Lord of the Shrews", or something equally shrewy.

I've got to find a plush shrew and then send it to Mike. Why? I don't know. It just seems to be the nice thing to do.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

There seem to be at least two models:

http://www.kosen.com/shrewmouse.html and http://www.stuffemal.com/cgi-bin/store/pid_370.htm :lol:

(Though the second isn't really a true shrew.)

Well...at least the first one won't place Mike in any physical danger.

It says right on the ad:

Handmade in Germany meeting the European safety norm EN 71

I have to assume that means it is unlikely to leap on your shoulder and gnaw on your ear.

A vicious bastard it is....I can WELL imagine why my character had so much trouble with it in Tegel Manor!

For those interested, apparantly JG glued some spikey black claws and teeth to a pink pig....making it a deadly foe.   8O

Mike,

I would be happy to go down to the Red Eye Cafe and order you a bacon burger and wrap it up all nice and send it your way.

No problem at all.

Martin
