Leaping LBEs!!

Postby Grace Speaker » Fri Feb 26, 2016 07:16 pm

As it's a Leap Year (in the Roundworld at least) and 'Leap' day is Monday 29th (and don't give me any of that nonsense about the extra day actually being the 24th February or you shall get a Look or possibly a Hard Stare), I was wondering if we're going to get a Leap LBE ??

She asked hopefully . . . ?

We're all trying to be very patient...
Time was that there would have been an earthy Valentines LBE, perhaps containing the splendid spring cabbage by now...
We have to be patient, because we have so much to look forward to this year if the auspexes, stars, and entrails are right...
But Soon I hope?
I can only conclude that I'm paying off Karma at a vastly accelerated rate.

Entrails - right. Sacrificing many many oysters today. They have entrails. I should know - I'm a professional oyster phlebotomist and proctologist. I shall arrange the entrails in the most auspicious alignment, adorned with holy cocktail sauce. If this doesn't work, I don't know what will.

:lol: :lol: :lol: They don't pick 'em, it's more of a 'sausagidity' sort of thing, but if you send me your numbers, I'll 'cast' another dozen or so molluscan entrails on your behalf. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I got a Sixpence Duty Paid Blue, two each of the new sports and 9 other sports from 24 LBEs, a very nice ratio. :D
