Woolly? Moi?


Never one to let an opportunity pass for self-promotion, Lock and Load is moderately proud to announce a small competition.

Have a look at My Visual Pitch for Penny Dreadful. Guess what happens in the end. The nearest/funniest gets my unread copy of Story.

Lol!

Something tells me it would be unfair for me to enter...

Elinor said...

Ewe must be joking...

Elinor said...

Lucy, I thought you already had Story. You can have another copy if you want to prop up the other end of your sofa.

Lucy said...

Gotta be joking luv, I used it to put out a small fire - on my husband's back, courtesy of fire poi.

Elinor said...

Ah, the incendiary properties of fire poi and husbands!

If you've still got the poi then surely you'll need another copy of Story.

Talking of setting fire to family members, my future son-in-law set fire to his hair blowing out birthday candles.

I'm pretty certain what happens is that the killer is chased through London until she's finally apprehended by the Keystone Kops in Camden Market. Unfortunately inadvertantly upset the large mustachioed fishmonger and a devestating custard pie fight ensues. The fight is interrupted when a drunken streaker runs across the pitch and everyone sets off after him accompanied by the Benny Hill theme tune and the results are hell-hairy-arse.

Fortunately I already have a copy of Story too.

Tom you must be psychic.

Rach said...

Hmmm. I can name that ending in one Bob.

Said prostitute goes on the run. Chased by dark, mysterious characters.

She can turn to no-one for help cos even the coppers are in on it gov.

She heads for Edinburgh and meets two nice gentlemen called Burke and Hare. Then gets done to death. I'm in that kind of mood today.

Oh, if I'm right then please don't send me that ripping yarn. Instead donate to a charity of your choice.

Elinor said...

Good one Rach! Blimey, does no-one want my copy of Story? No-one? Robin?

Salutations Sister E!

Should I be fortunate enough to be crowned the winner, I would gratefully accept the book.

And read it.

Apologies if this is, in fact, your plot...

I think the twist is the protag Penny has gone schizophrenic as a shield against what she has to do to earn a dreadful penny or two.

She doesnt realise that it is her own alter ego, dressed as a gentleman ala "Tipping the Velvet" complete with comedy moustache and false, er, ahem, equipment, who is committing the murders, with said equipment, to frame the Prince of Wales because, as Royalty, he doesn't carry cash, and therefore didn't pay her for his...er..ride.

The extra twist is the part of Penny is played by the Thunderbirds Lady Penelope Puppet (sorry, people, spoilers, I know, but she wasn't a real live actress, you know...).

Lady P Puppet identified with the role as she had been working on the streets herself,- because of typecasting she couldn't get any more acting roles and had missed the audition call for "Team America" as the pink Rolls broke down on the way.

With this inspired casting the writer/producer Elinor also cleverly fends off any possible critique of wooden acting...

Salutations#2, Sister E!

Should you have the time...

You're Meme'd!

Elinor said...

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!

A copy of Story goes to the monkey with the typewriter!

Popping over to yours for the meme Sheiky...

SHEIKSPEAR said...

Thank you very much Sister Elinor!

I've sent you an email with the oasis's secret location...
