[greenI should become an addict just in time for Christmas. So, what should I ask Father Christmas for to celebrate?

Pity perhaps, Bingley?

Alternatively a fine selection of distilled alcoholic beverages has appeared here:

Whilst you're at it, could you ask Santa if he knows anywhere I can get a Thunderbird 2 for Crimble? For my son, of course...

Bingley, I presume the most appropriate gift for you would be cold turkey?

you don't even have to know whether or not there's a cat in there

Maybe not - but I can assure you that no one could be near a cat in a box and not know about it. The soundproofing has yet to be invented that could drown out that noise! I believe that even profound deafness would not be proof against the sound of an incarcerated moggy.

As to getting the animal in there in the first place, every cat has its price. For one of mine, it is cucumber - of which she is inordinately fond. But for all three, cheese would do the trick - two will attempt fratricide in order to get at any sort of cheese (except Parmesan) whilst the third will use any sort of confidence trick for the chance to get even a nibble of the stuff. (That's the female one, of course )

Their best trick, of course, is to eat plenty of cheese and then sit by a mousehole with bated breath.

I suppose it would have been too obvious to say baited breath...

So if itís o.k. with you guys, I prefer to think of The Flying Pig City as a place where the impossible can happen than - not where all those slaughtered little piglet souls are flying about.

Well, Jerry Springer was the mayor of Porkopolis in the late '70s.

>Does anyone have any more out there?

I think that Chicago is know as the Windy City, a title sometimes borrowed by Edinburgh.
