Russian Roulette Sunday: There Is No Such Thing As A Psychic Octopus

Russian Roulette Sunday: There Is No Such Thing As A Psychic Octopus

What is it about the name Paul? Half the world becomes convinced that an octopus is psychic and half of Paul Gascoigne thinks that a murderer wants to do a spot of fishing. Rather worryingly, that was his sane half. We need to return to normality and thankfully this is where I step in. For all of you who have been taken in by Paul the Octopus, you need to watch this. He’s not psychic. He’s a chancer. Just like me.   There Is No...

Russian Roulette Sunday: World Cup Separated at Birth

Russian Roulette Sunday: World Cup Separated at Birth

It’s Sunday again and, now that the World Cup has reached the semi-final stage, there’s no football today.  So, what better way to spend our time than thinking about football?  Not making predictions, obviously, our track record there is worse than…well…anything.  We predicted that England would beat Germany handsomely and yesterday, half of the 7 Reasons team confidently stated that the German defence would be no...

Russian Roulette Sunday: The A to Z of 7 Reasons (part II)

Well, it’s Sunday again, and the thing that we were hoping to bring you has been put back due to our website difficulties this week.  So here’s the thing that was going to appear next week: Part II of the A-Z of 7 Reasons.  Last week remains unaffected.

Russian Roulette Sunday: The A to Z of 7 Reasons (part I)

Crikey!  It’s the first part of an A to Z of 7 Reasons.  Whatever will they think of next?  Yup, the second part.  Almost certainly. A is for Advertising. It’s something we haven’t quite got right yet. Since we blew the whole of our budget on an ad from Pearl & Dean, we have been kicking around trying to make the most of our own talents. Which is why we’ve created masks and stolen 1970s posters and changed the...

Russian Roulette Sunday: Race A Bed

Russian Roulette Sunday: Race A Bed

Approximately 50% of the 7 Reasons Team attended the Great Knaresborough Bed Race yesterday.  Held annually in the North Yorkshire town of Knaresborough, the bed race is a quirky traditional event much like cheese-rolling or bog-snorkelling (in fact, it contains elements found in both of those events). The bed race takes place every June and consists of teams comprising six runners and one rider pushing their bed on a short circuit around the...

Russian Roulette Sunday: Make Do And Mend.

Russian Roulette Sunday: Make Do And Mend.

Hello. It’s Sunday again. And Sundays come as Sundays do – after five days of hoping that the other 7 Reasons writer has come up with something for Sunday. They never have. Which is why Marc came to me yesterday, breathless and devoid of inspiration, and said, ‘We don’t have anything for Sunday do we?’ ‘No,’ I replied, supping on a cup of tea and stroking my mirror. ‘Damn,’ was his silent...
