OK. So we had one of these on the old board AGES ago, and since GC is short on stickies at present, I think we should also have one on here (but slightly different, I might add). Basic premise of this obviously stolen from toontastic dot net™, just so they don’t sue me or whatever.

 

Basically you (YOU) have to answer the questions poised by myself, to the best of your ability and/or knowledge. Easy as that. You can also write a bit more about yourself afterwards, if you really want to.

 

Right then amigos, the questions are as follows:

Nope, it actually is my fave drink. Toon Ale Blonde, great taste. It's not a larger but actual beer though it doesn't taste like real strong ale, very nice when chilled. I don't like the Toon Ale Brown, but I don't like Brown of any kind. You should try some if you already haven't, it's surprisingly a great drink and quite cheap too.

Can you get it outside the toon?

 

Not too sure. I think you can request orders via their site. We'll actually be doing stuff with Toon Ale soon, some competitions coming up among other things with drink involved so keep your eyes peeled.

Sitcom eh Wullie? What kind? Sounds interesting.

 

I love the whole sitcom genre but these days they are all predictable, boring and cliched. There's a great show waiting to be done, like no other before. The Office for me breaks the mould in so many ways, I'm a big (new) fan of that.

 

For some strange reason I quite liked My Family a few years back, tried watching one the other night on Sky and slapped myself for once laughing at it. Being stoned at the time could have helped lyke.

 

This forum would be a source of top material in my opinion. There's a few characters on here.

Me and a friend wrote three or four episodes of a sitcom about a group of hapless thieves. We sent it off to the Beeb who sent it back saying they liked it and would like to see more stuff. We never got round to it in the end and he's at Uni in Norwich so I don't see him too often. It's on my to-do list though.

Wullie, the sitcom things sounds great. I hope to be laughing my arse off in the near future at one of your shows. God knows we need some decent sitcoms on our screens as half of them are crap and we need more Geordie humour on the box.
