Cod Almighty | Postbag
The one with words AND pictures!
26 March 2003
In this week's postbag featuring some welcome contributions from our female readership: forgotten but not gone; we hadn't thought about moving into television...; geek alert; nesbit attends birth; thank God for Legal Aid; a pop star writes; a complaint; an apology; it's the Independent these days actually; and double strength Stilton.
On your letters page (see last week's letters page) Alex Winter has forgotten Gomez. Easy enough as I had too until I saw them on MTV2 this morning. Keep up the good work!

Is this web site related to the tv show God Almighty??

Geoff Corrin's picture of Giles out of Buffy as a future terrace hero is an appealing one (again, see the previous week's letters page), but unlikely to come to anything, as the diffident Watcher is well known for his love of the oval-ball game. Hence his withering put-down of American football: "I think it's odd that a nation that prides itself on its virility should feel compelled to strap on 40 pounds of protective gear in order to play rugby." This gem appears in 'Some Assembly Required', from season 2, shortly before Giles discovers an ancient Babylonian prophecy revealing that Town will stay up this season.

Looking for a nesbit for this week? I found this one above my lovely wife's head as she was pushing our daughter into the world.

Upon watching the Chemistry Experiment play in Leeds on Thursday night it was mentioned how good it was of them to allow you to use their cover of "be my postman" e.p.
Well, I can only describe the look on the bands face as shocked to the core. They have assured my legalities will follow and are in talks with their legal team
Just thought you should know...better get reading them law books
somebody asked about the postman picture... i can confirm that he is eating a banana. i can also tell you that he's in loughborough and his name is brian. what i can't tell you is what the bloody hell the picture from our second ep is doing on a grimsby town fansite.
anyhow... my dad is a grimsby fan, so at least he'll be impressed.
so finally can i wish you the best of luck for the rest of the season. i must apologise for that last minute equaliser at the city ground - nobody had told gareth williams about the plan to let grimsby and brighton beat us in order to drag d***y county into the relegation mire. oh, and give our love to steve 'shovelfoot' chettle.

from Nigel Vickers
Memo to Cod Almighty team: soz I haven't done a quiz for a few weeks. I've been too busy using my daughter as an excuse not to to do anything!

Close but no Sagare
Have you seen the squad for this afternoon's reserve match? Despite confirming the existence of Jake Sagare, who is Wayne Collins? I thought he was a 500cc Superbike racer. Maybe he is. After the success of converting Boulding from a tennis player to a football player, are we trying it with other sports? Galli was originally a pub darts player.

So the GET are running a story about Oster definitely not signing for Town are they? So fucking what? When have those fuckwits been right about anything? I'll tell you what's really happened. They need to fill a bit of space and in their shite Daily Mail wannabe way they've decided to cause "outrage" and rile the Town fans.
The story is a big pile of shite. The Daily Mail is a big fucking pile of tit wank nonsense - and any paper that models itself on the Daily Mail is clearly run by a collection of motherfucking fuckwits.
I wouldn't wipe a dogs arse with the GET - it would demean the poor creature.
If they'd posted that story on a messageboard those fuckers would be nesbits of the year. Tossers.
