Well, that was fun.

Moving swiftly along, the time has come for the Twoothy Limericks Round. On the radio, the chairman presents the first line and the contestants complete the Limericks a line at a time, each contestant providing one line each until the poem is completed to rapturous applause and wild laughter from the panel. But who's got time for that, right?

In our version, I'll provide five first lines and it's up to you to build a complete Limerick from the first line, or lines, of your choice. This is a Zero Sum round, meaning that all points will be donated to Virgin Trains in the vain hope that they'll get their act together before the Rapture.

The five first lines are:
Whilst reading Prog One in my bed...
As Bill Savage climbed into his truck...
Tharg went to Quaxxan for Lent...
The perp who sniffed Anderson's bike...
Johnny Alpha, while out on a hunt...

That should keep you busy for a bit, so get on with it while I go for a slash...

Whilst reading Prog One in my Bed,
A Heatseeker round hit me in the head,
The Judges surmised,
from my Twoothy joyride,
that some Zine readers are better off dead.
BOOM! BOOM!

As Bill Savage climbed into his truck,
He discovered the steering wheel stuck,
But the truck then reversed,
And through a Minefield traversed, 
Now Bill's the one riding his luck.

Food has always played a big part in 2000AD. Who can forget the memorable scenes where Judge Dredd and a cadet on final assessment shared a hottie on the slab or Nicolai Dante got his tongue around unfeasible quantities of tuna?

In this round, The Salad of Halo Jones, contestants are invited to suggest meals, snacks or other foodstuffs that might be of interest to 2000AD readers or characters.

I'd give some examples but I can't be arsed. Anyway, you can figure this out without my help, so get on with it...

And so, as the Nu Earth wormhole approaches the nebula of Thrill Power and the Biro of the Mighty Wagner penetrates the soft and intimate core of Button Man, I see it's almost time to put aside this silliness for the time being. We'll be back later for some more pointless antics when I, or hopefully somebody else, can be bothered think up some new games.

Until then, Tharg's delightful sister, Marg, and I will be reorganising my collection of Megazines. I'll be bagging the Megs themselves while Marg handles my floppies.

But first, there's just time for a game of Star Scams, in which contestants are invited to introduce us to the vacuous media personalities of the future, people who will entertain and amuse the citizens of such places as Mega City One, The Hoop and Termight.

Such luminaries may include the likes of:

Gorgon Ramsey - celebrity chef who takes only the finest ingredients and reduces them to small lumps of solid charcoal
Leonardo Cohen - celebrity inventor who sings mournful dirges about wooden helicopters
Bruise Willis - actor who made a career out of annoying judges
and... Oh, what's the point.
