Still en vacance, and as enigmatic as ever…

Rumoured to have lost his voice. Well, you don’t see him around much.

No suggestions from Barney, so this means more agony. Oh well – “Aidan scores two for Queen’s Park – he must have been ‘Keena’ than the rest.” And don’t say you didn’t deserve it, either!

The Dread Hand Of BarneyThe Dread Hand of Barney
…was hiding from egg-chasing fans, eager to bore us with Six Nations rugby. It seems that we have finally found something to scare the Evil one!
