Sam, thanks for the Scotch eggs. I ate six and gave one to Eno for roughage. I'm afraid the suit is on loan to Richard Madeley. You might have seen it in dictionary corner on Countdown. Pinter told me you’re having trouble with your dentures. I recommend Ambrosia creamed rice. It’s all I ate in the 70s, apart from Birdseye potato waffles and caviar. Pinter also told me that when you were writing Waiting for Godot, you lived on roadkill, Stayfresh bread and Cup-a-Soup. He said the sight of you trying to put a squirrel in a sandwich toaster was what started him off with black comedy. By the way, I was in WH Smith the other day and got a voucher for 20% off Trout Fisherman magazine. Would you be interested? I've already got a subscription.


David, you'll have heard the news. I was on holiday with Suzanne, applying factor 50 to her back, when the news about the Nobel came through. What on earth were the judges thinking? Who are these patrician psychopaths locked away to assuage each other’s egos regarding things they know nothing about? Have they lost the ability to read sentences? Everyone knows Dylan hasn't written anything decent since 'Lay Lady Lay'. I worry it detracts from the rest of us. You do have one don't you, a Nobel I mean, for contributions to peace in the solar system? Suzanne accused me of trying to strangle her. I said it was the actions of a man who hadn't felt the joy of ink through pen for some time. I need a holiday. Tunisia is like Farmfoods on a beach.
