And PC davem has got his job back. Will we get to see him posing around in his police hat again, the one that made him look like an extra in the Full Monty?

Haha! Excellent!

I think someone should open a Barrow-downs chippy and use the few unsold copies of the Downer to wrap the customers' chips and fish up in so they get a good read while they eat!

What a noble cat... Then again, cats make any sense of undeserved self-acomplishment look regal. I'm indeed impressed.

Sauron has a vacation house of chocolate? Did he buy and register a building permit in Candyland or something?

The downs could form one of those really pesky, but highly organized homeowner's associations, you know, architects and contractors' headaches...

Thumbs up Olden Times...

Unfortunately, there was no News this week. So, I had a look through The Downer's archives and found this long lost edition from many, many years ago. Enjoy!



It even comes with the whimsical adventures of Sir Phantom and Master Alan...



Even Serious Cat was around in those days...

So did I...serious cat looks great
Anyway...interesting idea with the Downer this week...
Perhaps a retro cartoon of Phantom and Alien follows...
I could imagine Alien smoking a pipe and asking a butler to bring him some tea

Ooh, I was late reading the paper today because I've been trying to keep up with what's been happening up my road because someone got shot last night! And I heard it all and thought it was fireworks! So I've been being like a real life DCI Lalwende...


It's that bit about davem being 'roped in to it by strange forces' that rings most true. He often blames things on this, such as not doing his ironing etc.

I'll leave it there before he sees this and gets sarcastic on me...

Does davem read The Downer? Or is it too High Brow?
Or maybe he just does not like Alien...



Anyway, people, if you have any stories you'd like on the front page, just PM them to me (because I am falling behind at the moment). I'm thinking of doing a competition soon where I'll post an amusing picture and the one who can make the best story for it will not only get on the Front Page, but win... I don't know... some grass.

Boots Random Titles want some mud....

Hm...I wonder if Bob the Liar is really credible....

And is the Eye of Sauron allergic to muffins? That'd be a terrible allergy to have.


Lastly, you should probably give away mud instead of grass, mud's more legal in these parts.

Nahh. I'd rather have the grass, it makes your barrow look all nice and grown-over. It attracts more feckless hobbits that way.

Quite indeed. Also, to add a topping of spare mushrooms here and there to sod is quite effective as well, I've found.
Some floral arrangements are 'meh' at best, the mushrooms are the way to go.

My lap top died yesterday and I have been frantically trying to extract the upcoming Downer weeks off the fried hard drive.

So, several things may happen,

Firstly, I may recover the files and we'll be okay, or there will be no Downer next week or, if there is, the style and content will probably be different. Mainly because I will have to start from scratch instead of using the template I made.

Let us hope that I can get the data out. Although, I suspect I know who the culprit is...

I just hope you do not have sinister *sage-like abilities....



*note, not the garden herb which goes so well with onions in stuffing, but the kind of 'sage' like scary Mother Shipton or Nostradamus. I am not suggesting that you, Hookbill. are green and live in the garden...

BTW davem's mac is playing up and my laptop keeps overheating so I know how you feel.

Like, The Jack in the Green?

As some of you may be aware, my beloved laptop sadly passed away yesterday.
Unfortunately, I am, for now, without Microsoft Image composer, the program I use to make the newspapers and until I get it back I'm going to try some other methods but I cannot promise great quality in future papers.
Also, I'm thinking of hiring an assistant writer for the Paper. If anyone is interested, the job will entail writing one story a week of around 200-300 words and, if he or she likes, some of the little side headlines also.
If you're interested let me know. I need help because I've fallen a little behind with university work piling up and my computer problems.

Seems like a little prophecy from the Alien, doesn't it?

However I am happy that you managed to get the Downer out despite all the problems! I would certainly miss it!

Yes, it seems I may yet have 'sage-like' abilities after all!

So, Lal, Davem, you'd better keep an eye out for Alien coming near your house with a box of matches.
But, just in case this is true...



Lets hope that one comes true!

Which brings me to a new question.
Is serious a she or a he???
I mean, considering the moustache I think it's pretty obvious it should be a he...but you never know

Lots of cats have mysterious moustaches, both the hes and shes. It are actually quite disturbing how many kitties bear a resemblance to a certain dictator.

Of course, our Serious Cat are look more like a Lord Peter Wimsey type...good chap.

It's funny you should mention that. I did have that Idea but thought it would be pointless... Mmmm... maybe not... *dreams*

Seriously, thought, does anyone want a job at The Downer?

No Mr H of G, no dreams for you, you are scaring me with your sage like abilities. Just step back away from the cheese...

Anyway, what you are looking for is an Intern. A Deputy Editor. A Downer's Apprentice.

I might be able to come up with some amusing snippets for you if you promise not to go anywhere near the cheese at suppertime.

It seems our very own Fordim Hedgthistle made an appearance in many newspapers across the US today, in this lovely little comic.

And it appears serious cat is not alone as an animal resident of the 'Downs... His far less sophisticated cousin seems to have caught the addiction, as well, perhaps adding to his...bad habits.




And of course one of the longest dead residents of the 'Downs...
