How about some more of those nice Crush names?…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s rather fine expletive from the days of Queen Elizabeth 1 is Blood and Thunder! I think we should make a start on bringing it back into use, don’t you?
‘Blood and thunder! Barista! This cappuccino is tepid!’

Yes, this morning I received a very early Christmas card in the post, the envelope had a US stamp on it. It turned out to be 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 multimillion dollar fortune, Monty Tick. The card depicted their jovial current president, dressed as Santa Claus, with bulging eyes, waving a long whip, mercilessly thrashing the bunch of emaciated reindeer pulling his dilapidated sleigh. What a lovely card!
Veronica also included with her greetings another batch of her spare character names; she says that she comes up with several new names every day, more that she could ever use in her stories. By sending them to be made available on my blog, she allows writers, who haven’t the imagination or wit to think up decent names for their characters, to dip in and choose two or three to use, free of charge, or as she would put it, now that she has become acclimatised in the US, ‘for free’.
As usual, she has included in her list one real person’s name – see if you can guess which one it is. (The answer to the puzzle is available via a link at the foot of this page.)

    Oh! I’ve seen this “Christmas” card you speak of….but it was not President Trump dressed as Santa….it was the former porn writer and far left socialist anti-Semite candidate for President Bernie Sanders…because only Marxists can ruin a holiday so proficiently…under Trump, all the people are getting richer everyday, not just Democratic politicians……I could go on….but, Epstein didn’t kill himself!
