I was just enjoying a quiet snooze this afternoon over my favourite 4x4 sudoku from Saturday's Independent when I became aware of high excitement in the little Bear's dorm, where they were supposed to be resting after lunch. It grew louder and louder until the squeaks and growls could be heard all over the house.
"Whatever is the matter?" I asked crossly.
According to the littlest bear , our little cousin Sandy (who is not actually that little as he is very partial to crisps and Doritos) had been taken prisoner and was being held behind bars somewhere in Mexico.The Bears had been surfing the web and discovered the footage on You tube showing a film of several bears behind bars, apparently being tortured by being shown a big bag of Doritos that they couldn't reach. I watched it through and it did look like Sandy in prison- it was very convincing.
Well of course as an International Celebrity they wanted me to ring the Foreign Office immediately to plead for his release. Fortunately I didn't fall for that one. Luckily I already knew about the US Superbowl Doritos Advertising Competition entries, so I was able to avoid causing an International Incident on April Fools Day. Turns out Little Cousin Sandy was hiding in the bottom of the wardrobe with a big bag of cheese and onion crisps. " Monty, What are you going to do to him?" asked the others when his whereabouts were finally revealed.
"Pinch , punch first of the Month ! Now run along and leave the bag of crisps here ! "
