Some more of those Crush names…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s instruction is to lie supine on a warm hard floor, raise one leg until vertical, tap your right knee rhythmically with your left hand whilst chanting in a loud clear voice, ‘A, A, A, A…’ continue for ten minutes. The following day repeat the process, but on the left knee with your right hand chanting, ‘Z, Z, Z, Z…’ Continue this daily for two or three weeks. (If you live in the USA, you may wish to chant ‘zee’ instead of ‘zed’ – be reassured this will make no difference to the outcome.)

Speaking of the USA, I just received an airmail letter from there, it was from Veronica Crush, writer from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, now living in New York with tall tree surgeon and heir to a multi million dollar fortune Monty Tick. A while ago she sent me a list of spare character names that she had accumulated – she says that although she is currently suffering writer’s block she still can’t help but come up with new characters; apparently they visit her randomly at all hours of the day – these people just pop into her head, she says, and she feels obliged to jot them down on scraps of paper and backs of envelopes.
As I shared her previous collection with my readership here on these pages, and later mentioned to Veronica that they were quite well received, she has sent me another batch to share with you:

Sir Edmund Soup
Billy ‘Cat’s Paw’ Fotheringay
Margarita Garret-Wretch
Horatio Duckman-Silt
Willy Wildgoose Drudge
Nancy Ample
Lady Hildegard Yuke
Hunter Gathra
Beau Blowgo-Bix
Al Kemmick
Stephanie Pink-Tatters
Big Ed Rugstick
Viscount Spattermo of Tums
Reggie Edgy
Bobby ‘Banjo’ Blotz
Cynthia T. Rugstick
Ramesses Bloodshock IV
Lord Futile de Kums
Ana Anodyne-Whit
Little Jimmy Packna
May Brexit-Rexit

    Ah yes, it appears Veronica has been listening to the BBC (May Brexit-Rexit)….and I see the Rugsticks both made an entrance….Big Ed AND Cynthia T.! Now I wonder, Mr. Whatt, (and perhaps it is of no consequence….) why is there a punctuation mark (period) after each name?

    • Dave Whatt says:

      I do know that Veronica often listens to the BBC World Service on (what’s it called?) National Public Radio over there?
      Those punctuation marks – I don’t know, it just happened… I’m not very good on punctuation and stuff – I think I might go back and delete them, as you have mentioned it…
      Yes, those will be the Rugstick twins…

      • Dana Doran says:

        I rather like the punctuation…..those names are meant to stand alone….and make a statement. I do think that Cynthia T. Rugstick (period, and just stop right there) is better than a dangling list….

      • Dave Whatt says:

        Ah, I just edited the thing – those pesky full stops (periods) have gone now – I do think it looks better.
        That’s what comes of trying to write things first thing in the morning before old brain has warmed up properly…
        Yet another ellipsis!
