Monkey Business by John Ritchie and Stacey Law

As lots of people, well, several people, O.K. actually two, have suggested/insisted (delete as applicable) that John should review his biography, John has complied. John is not easily swayed, except by high winds and threats of personal violence, guess which was applied on this occasion (answers on a plain brown postcard to PP&P), but a word in the right ear, the left one is for out-going messages only, set his remaining brain cells throbbing and less than a year later, give or take a millennia, here is the requested script.

Oh, incidentally, the two people who popped round to John’s residence at Bag End and suggested/insisted (delete as applicable) that John should review his biography were captured by John’s state-of-the-ark CCTV camera and should be on this page. If you can’t see them it is either: because they have claimed they were framed and Robert T. Ironside has got them off on a technicality or they have jumped to light speed and are currently doing unspeakable things to a planet in a galaxy far, far away. After reviewing the several miles of footage recorded by John’s Vicious Crime Recorder, crime enforcement officers were so impressed by this evidence of a crime being enforced they have invited the participants to a New Years Black and White Ball at San Quentin.

As it seems to be the practice for celebrities to share their most intimate secrets with the wider world, John has also included a shot of part of his Al Fresco dressing room at Malibu. This photograph should allay malicious rumours currently circulating in theTabloid press, that John always wears the same three shirts.

Feeling lucky, punk?
