What is going on?

Paleochora was stunned yesterday by the news that the 19th Annual “I want to take my sarong off and dance naked around an olive tree shouting ‘WooWoo’ Festival” is possibly going to have to be cancelled because of a total an utter lack of interest displayed in the event by the incoming hordes of English Tourists (Sid and Doris Bonkers of Oldham or was it Neasden?)

According to reliable sources, local practising psykik and new arrival “Dr.” Insa Ne has been forced to alert the owners of the “Doris Stoke Memorial Home and Kareoke Bar - Paleochora Branch” to the unpalatable facts that owing to the high value of the Euro against the Pound and she is stony broke, there is a possibility that the eagerly awaited event, due to be held, according to the ancient calendar of the Goddess Initforthedosh, on the third new moon of Octember, will now have to be postponed.

Mentor Lee Hill, seventh level guru and part time olive picker, was unavailable for comment being too busy putting his inner child to bed. No comment was made either by Ms Teake, the longest serving psykotic sykik in the village, who had just taken delivery of ther own KDNY branded Aura protection Sun Glasses, a snip at 45 Euros a pair, and was preparing to put them on display by the sandy beach.

In the meantime, Ms Demena, who had invited “Dr” Insa Ne to the village in the first place, has confirmed that she is involved in a new project to offer a new course in “Gibberish meditation.”
“I learned how to speak fluent Gibberish and how to combine this with permitting my innermost bean to flower whilst sitting at the feet of the sainted OMYGOSHO- pronounced Basil - in the Himalayan village Harpoona many years ago. You spend an hour or so chanting Gibberish and then you find you become totally relaxed and your mind becomes a complete blank. For a mere 345 Euros I am willing to pass the secret of my success on to anyone who wishes to follow this mystical path,” said Ms Demena last night.

When it was suggested to her that the same effect, speaking Gibberish followed by a state of total relaxation and a blank mind, is usually to be obtained simply by drinking a small bottle or two of Raki, she terminated the interview.

Thought For The Day...An apology

Thought For The Day ®
With Rev. Elroy Cupboard®

The lawyers and personal doctor of Rev. Elroy Cupboard have today issued an apology to the millions of disciples of The Church of Scientifikological Phrenelogy® about the absence of a Thought For The Day ® in recent, eh, days.

Lawyer Hiemey Fiermie and Dr. Eliott Stoppage issued a joint statement saying "The truth is, since his recent lecture tour and factfinding mission to Columbia and Mexico together with with his highest profile follower, Hollywood Heaththrob Tom Missile, Rev. Cupboard has been incapable of any thinking much at all."

Dr. Stoppage continued; "When he tries to communicate all the poor man can do is talk dribble". When asked if he meant 'drivel' he replied "I know what I mean, Sonny!"

"This is not altogether unusual" He continued " The last time this happened (on his return from a secret missionary visit to US troops in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan together with nubile blonde heiress socialite follower Athens Travelle-Lodge) he was back to normal in no time at all after a couple of Aura Enemas"
