A funny thing happened on the way back from work today and it was all to do with guns and seagulls. Now I reckon your'e thinking Phillpots has either shot a load pesky seagulls with a secret gun he keeps hidden in his pocket or witnessed the shooting of seagulls. Well I can honestly say one of these is actually true.
While at work today I was listening to a play called Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen which is set to me anyways around a gun that was finally used in the last scene. Enjoyed the full cast play sound effects.
Now on the way home I stopped of at my local for a pint (of coke) and went to search for another play to listen to tomorrow. I choose The Seagull by Checkov another full cast play with sound. I started listening for the first ten minutes just to see if I would continue with it tomorrow and yes I am. However 3 minutes in I just happened to notice sky news was on about the Royal wedding and sighed. Then all of a sudden a headline came up in big letters on screen and it said GULL GUNS and then skipped straight to people at an outside bar in Australia where customers were firing at gulls to get rid of them. Left that last suspence till now. They were water guns to keep them from attacking their food at the bar.
Now what are the chances of that I thought. In my world very likely.
Anyways after me pint (coke of course) I stagered sorry walked home to write this completely useless story.

Do know what I started listening to that play and it's good but half an hour in I was thinking to myself what has this play got to do with seagulls then the main charactor came on and said I have just shot a seagull. JEEZ!! Can't make this s**t up if I tried. :)
