We have slipped over into the Twilight Zone...
Chris: I can give no rational explanation other than to say we are in Bath Larry..

Une volaille bien dodue. J'aime la coiffure et les chaussures.
Chris: Very strange isn't it Martine..

We must be in Bath -after the interlude he deserves a pint of beer although water is the best in Bath!
Chris: The man whose novels have probably been read by a greater number of people than any other English works of fiction, was no stranger to Bath. As a young parliamentary reporter, he visited the city in the spring of 1835, to report a speech by Lord John Russell for the Morning Chronicle; and on that occasion he stayed at the Saracen’s Head in Broad Street. Later, he often visited his close friend, Walter Savage Landor, at 35 St James’s Square. He was there in 1840, and is said to have conceived the character of Little Nell in The Old Curiosity Shop during his stay. Pickwick Papers had already firmly established his fame as a novelist, and in one or two chapters of this celebrated novel the social life of Bath was brilliantly satirised, with Mr Pickwick taking the waters, Sam Weller, his faithful servant, declaring them to have ‘a very strong flavour o’ warm flat irons’, and Mr Dowler and Mr Winkle getting involved in a hilarious chase round the Royal Crescent.

I expect he is on the Endangered List, Chris.
Chris: This would not be surprising were it to be so Ray
Bloomin' heck Tiff, my advice is always, if you hate your job go and do something else.
Chris: I did just that Chad. I retired and now do nothing

Is this the equivalent of the village stocks? I think I will have to dress in something even more ridiculous than what I normally wear for my forthcoming visit to Bath.
Chris: You will be judged - however harshly - by what you wear..
I think the fellows watching Me. Chicken are a bit jealous. Dad has only a chicken neck, you see.
Chris: He has style Mary, albeit poultry style..
I feel at times that events in Bath become more indescribable by the day!
Chris: Just a normal day on the lawn Brian..

I was in Bath yesterday and today - hence the slow response - and didn't see any unbecoming chicken activity. I think you must encourage this kind of behaviour

Clearly he is taking inspiration from footballer Verdan Corluka's headgear - guessing that reference is over your head too. He plays for Croatia.

Chris: I am obliged to you for the obscure football references

My chicken man was playing in Queen Square at the boules championship last weekend

Man alive, even he was the last man on earth I would not go with him... in my case I already solved that problem, but still. I think his wife loves him dearly......
Chris: I wonder if his wife calls him Old Cock?
You would have to pay me a vast amount of money to appear like that in public ....or in private for that matter
Chris: I think we have a general consensus on this matter
Now there's not something you see every day.... or do you?
Chris: Well not EVERY day Elizabeth..
