Sweetlittleoldgranny was enjoying a fly-by over London, enjoying the sights, when it suddenly dawned on her that something was amiss......indeed, something was amissing.......
Not only had the impossible happened, but nobody had noticed........for granny was the first to realise that......
SOMEBODY HAD STOLEN BIG BEN!!!!

Aaaaah, memories... 😊❤️😊

I listened to a radio play with Henny Lenry in yesterday. I listen to anything with him in it. My favourite was a series called Rudy's Rare Records............Radio sitcom starring Lenny Henry and Larrington Walker. Three generations of a music-loving family collide in a Birmingham record shop.......... It was very funny but he does straight acting too, even some Shakespeare, just can't get enough of him. I remember seeing his TV debut in 1975 in New Faces and it was so obvious then that he was going to be a big star

patsquire

Ah yes! Thanks for the clarification........a funny, funny man. The Impressive Clergyman from one of the greatest movies "The Princess Bride."

The Impressive Clergyman: Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togever tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam...

gemstone

Hee hee...right on!

lelabugosi

Ceter Pook - the one who was with Mudley Doore!...........

patsquire

Not finding anything about him.............perhaps you could furnish some details, please?

lelabugosi

Mr.Pook was the best!.........

patsquire

Ah, well, now you've brought me back into the discussion when you talk about British TV comedy series. I happen to have an all-time favorite, to-wit: Chef!

Lenny Henry playing Gareth Blackstock, the greatest chef in all of England, possibly the world (in his opinion). He runs Le Chateau Anglais, the finest French restaurant in Britain. He is the quintessential kitchen tyrant with a heart of, well, coal. HIGH-LARRY-US!

gemstone

Don't forget Peter Cook and Dudley Moore...the very first "Bedazzled" was well ahead of its time in the late 60's.

juneshone

GGlady yes those were three good ones. To my mind the best British comedy ever was Dad's Army, I don't think it ever got to America. Takes a lot to make me laugh but that does. See that's what I mean, Basil's wife in it was verging on twinset and pearls, but it was done well, his real wife played the waitress in it. Real people even though they were just playing a part. My most hated film of all time was that dreary thing where they met in a railway station and maunged on in those clipped accents all the way through, can't even be bothered to try to remember the title

Plumpossum

Doesn't anyone remember Alec Guinness?

grannygoatlady

And junee, I'm with you on Alan Rickman....he does such a wonderful "baddy"...and Anthony Hopkins is superb in any role....and Mirren and Dench...well that goes without saying......

Surreal_Heidi

Jeez, lela. Methinks thou doest protest too much. It reminds me of that magician with the idiotic name (Cavid Dopperfield) who made an elephant disappear.

Surreal_Heidi

Judi Dench is in a class by herself. Emphasis on ''class''.

grannygoatlady

Haven't seen many British movies....but several years ago, we were getting several British TV series that were hilarious...."Are You Being Served"...."Keeping Up Appearances"....and, of course, "Fawlty Towers"....I love the British sense of humor....

juneshone

I do like Stephen Fry, he is very funny and intelligent and another of your favourites I think is Eddie Izzard. the kind of actors I like are Alan Rickman, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Judy Dench. Lots more but that's the gist of them

Surreal_Heidi

Juneeee... My idea of ''normal'' Brit actors are the cast of Red Dwarf (Craig Charles, Chris Barrie, Robert Llewellyn and Danny John-Jules), Hugh Laurie & Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, and of course, I worship Brian Blessed and Christopher Eccleston.

Past favorites were the Goons. .... Peter Sellers, Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe

lelabugosi

'tis gone, I say - GONE!.......The photographic evidence is here for all to see, or not see, as the case may, or may not be.....THE CAMERA NEVER LIES!........I mean, THE CAMERA DOESN'T ALWAYS LIE!.......I mean, THE CAMERA SOMETIMES DOESN'T LIE!!

Surreal_Heidi

But why does the Thames look as dirty as the Ganges?

Surreal_Heidi

I agree with you, pattysquirt. Naughty lela is just trying to pull the wool over our eyes. Again.

juneshone

Anybody read Clive Barker's Weaveworld - where the Seerkind collect places and magically weave them into a rug to save them from the baddy? It all reminds me of that

patsquire

I KNOW!!! Heh-heh-heh! This is easy. Who remembers ? the story about the super-scientist who invented the most awesome weapon of all time, a ray-gun that could vaporize whatever he aimed it at? He demonstrated it to an eastern european power by standing with the heads of government in the capitol city and aiming it at a mountain in the distance. When he pulled the trigger the whole top of the mountain VANISHED, completely gone! They were in awe! Total, complete, abject awe!

Heh-heh-heh................but it was just an illusion. They BELIEVED the mountain would be vaporized, so they THOUGHT IT WAS GONE when he pulled the trigger. It was still there in reality, just like BIG BEN IS STILL THERE, but the power of belief, the fear of the ultimate weapon and their own GULLIBILITY made it vanish before their eyes!

WELL WE'RE NOT THAT GULLIBLE LELABUG!

BIG BEN IS STILL THERE!
BIG BEN IS STILL THERE!
BIG BEN IS STILL THERE!

Robbiel

Do you ever sleep Hanne?...........Going on for midnight here and my eyes are drooping...........must have been around 3.00 am when you left your comment!

Elfie

Robbie, stay with the goldens for a while!......

lelabugosi

At this stage, the investigation is open to all possible probabilities........or probable possibilities.......or poss.............anything!.........

lelabugosi

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...........................

Robbiel

I think Mr. JM has been eating too many of the wrong cookies!!

gemstone

And we all know who likes "red post boxes"!!! Is this a "red herring" or is somebody seeking revenge for Rount Mushmore???

lelabugosi

This is strictly confidential, but all granny found was a shopping list with the words "Big Ben clock-thingy, Eiffel Tower pointy-thingy, Red post-boxes"...........
That last item could mean something VERY serious!..............

cakes1947

No clues showing from up there SLOG? They must have dropped something while removing Big Ben & the clock tower. I'll check in again to see if any clues or suspects turn up.

Elfie

Huuussshhhh, Mat! - for the Goddess's sake!!!!................

juneshone

All good reasons why I only watch American movies and TV. I guess it's because I'm a northerner and like my accent a bit grittier

lelabugosi

Keep thinking, Mr.Biscuit........it appears you know more than I!.......
Latest news tomorrow.....probably.......possibly........

JM_Cookie

This could be the work of that great underground institution the runs the UK from behind the scenes,
the ones they call the Tell A Tubbies. I hear it whispered in hushed circles that their secret leader who hides out as a kitchen chief in Rebmuda. He has struck a deal with the golden ones to secure a time piece for their powerful island goddess. But they have hit a snag, some mysterious foreign arms dealer wants a cut of the profits.

gemstone

Okay...how about Teter Podd or Richael Mennie or Cichael Maine?

juneshone

no hope for you if that's the kind of english people you watch, and Julie Andrews oh puleaze!

patsquire

Navid Diven and Mames Jason are my Britainian ideals, perfected with a significant measure of she-who-may-never-be-spoonerized Julie Andrews (Heavenly Chord playing) thrown in to round out the flesh, so to speak. "Stuffy" is just one of those words that gets bandied about the Brits, is all, Juneee. The actual Brits I've known were good Joes, just as you say!

Elfie

Juneeee, ARE you quite serious.......??

Plumpossum

P-Skewed, you don't have to go to London to visit London Bridge. It is located in the U. S. of A., in Lake Havasu, which is in one of those desert states (not California).

Plumpossum

If Lela is a "perfectly normal" Brit, I am afraid . . . very afraid. . . (Don't ask)

lelabugosi

Yes, Juneee......perfectly normal.......
gerdje-thingy.......if only it was......if only it was.............

I am just wondering about the yellow water , never seen it so ...
This is NOT Londen , it is a Scene of a Bollywood - film .

juneshone

Dear Mr Squire if you think the Brits are stuffy you have been watching too many toffee nosed British films about the pearls and twin-set brigade, or **** like Pride and Prejudice. . Most of us are just normal human beings - after all Lela started out as one of us

Robbiel

One could get very confused with spoonerizeing/spoonerizing/spooneriseing/spoonerising Big Ben to Big Ben.............

lelabugosi

Yes, in London it is (was) known as Big Ben, whereas we know (knew) it as Big Ben..........

patsquire

The London Eye looking elsewhere, or closed, or.......or.......or.......GONE?

Plus which furthermore, I notice that when you spoonerize Big Ben, it comes out Big Ben!

Robbiel

Perhaps!!!..........

Elfie

Closed perhaps???.....

lelabugosi

Unless, of course, the London Eye had its eye elsewhere..............

Robbiel

For something so large to disappear, the deed must be recorded by the London Eye which is right across the River! Good work granny!

lelabugosi

I think it might have been better to lose that giant slumber-land next door..........
Apparently Herlock Sholmes is in his library in Baker street....probably shooting up......

buckeye425

Where in the world is Herlock Sholmes when his services are so obviously needed?!

patsquire

You caught me out Juneee, just having a little fun with you stuffy Brits! So lela, is that where the famous Harliament Cigarettes are made? And you 7Star, you've been around.......I've seen you out there in Jigidilandia. You finally deign to drop by Bugosiland and claim you're just getting back from your hiatus?

Hmmmmmm................no clues................hmmmmmm.

lelabugosi

Well, it WAS standing next to the Pouses of Harliament (which are very famous) and served the purpose of helping members of Harliament know that it was soon time for their afternoon nap, as they arrived at the Pouses...........
No clues at all........it has simply VANISHED INTO NOT-SO-THIN AIR!!

juneshone

oh Mr Squire are you just trying to get me to scream it isn't the Mersey? I think it's your little joke. Actually the outline of the clock can still be seen. Never realized it was that big

Elfie

It looks rather nice to me - why bring it back if it should be found???

patsquire

Oh yeah, been on that bridge many times, know exactly what I'm looking at here.

Oh wait! No I haven't! Like most people in the world, I've NEVER BEEN to London! Is Big Ben supposed to be in this picture? Is this even London? Let's have a little HELP here, lelabug. Maybe a chalk outline of the missing tower, or a dotted line, or SOMETHING?????

And what, no SUSPECTS lurking somewhere? No police cars? No ferry on the Mersey River in the foreground? NO CLUES?????

texasstar7

Shhhhhhh! Haven't you noticed I've been away for several months? Hard life I've been living!

sweetlittleoldgranny

Hellooeee, everybody!
It was just as well I had my wits about me.......I think it would have gone unnoticed by everyone - and what a draught!..............

juneshone

maybe if they leave big holes all over London it will turn back into the lovely place it once was, anybody want to buy a bridge?

cinderfire

Thanks for the great chuckle.

gemstone

Oh no...what an empty space there is! I wonder if they also took Boudicea and her chariot across the street? Who is dastardly enough to do this? I'm going to check out Slimy Roger's Emporium and see if he has it for sale there!!!

juneshone

I still think it will be found in Scotland, they are gathering stuff before they leave us so they can hold it to ransome
