Are there any board games which are actually IMPROVED or AT ALL CHANGED – as opposed to momentarily coloured – by having their own classic scenarios recast to conform to some TV programme or other? My sister was given Simpsons Cluedo for xmas: the board and the pieces are nicely enough designed/made (Bart dressed as Professor Plum, Krusty as Reverend Green etc, and such weapons as “poisoned donut” and “nuclear rod”, and the rooms are the “Kwik-E-Mart” or “Mr Burns’s Office”) but actually, apart from none of us ever remembering who or what anything is, this adds nothing at all…

(Well, we did discover that Becky has nurtured Uri Geller-like abilities since last time we played, probably in the 80s: the first game she guessed the contents of the envelope exactly correctly on her first go; the third game ditto; there was no fourth game, only sulks and tantrums)

    What about the possibility of pulling out of Iraq, letting Iran invade and lose resources fighting their own kind,
    and then come in and mop up the dregs?

    I notice that spammers have now mastered the art of randomly generating ‘realistic’ blog comments.

    Though not actually of matching them to blog posts, though I’m sure Krusty’s views on the middle east are enlightening.
