Time of the Month. Movie of the Week. Match of the Day

A long, long time ago I had several books of Peanuts cartoons. One of these strips had Snoopy sitting on top of his kennel with his typewriter, trying to write his epic novel which would, as always, fail to get past the first page. And so he typed:

The Fluffy Bunnies: A tale of mirth and woe.

Chapter One

"Ha ha ha," laughed the bunnies.

"Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha."

Snoopy turns to the reader and says, "So much for the mirth."

And that, dear reader, is where I get it all from. Hardly seems worth the effort, does it?

Hey, but you know what I'm trying to say - it's time to vote for this week's Scary tale of mirth and woe. Choose from:

Top shelf - alcohol and vomit woe
Inflatables - football, not much woe but plenty of mirth
Brains! - Zombie woe
An Inspector Calls - Food poisoning woe
Surfing - bizarre ringpiece injury woe
Slide of doom - playground stunt-gone-wrong woe

Natch, I will also be up half the night trying to fit in your suggestions of words or phrases you might like to see in the winning epic. Vote-o!
