Well, thank you both! One tries ones best.

I have now seen the offending article (although not in print) and I have to say it's not bad. Shame they didn't mention the competition or the website though. But I'm going to be continuously nervous when I get back to York and go out in public...

Oh please, as I recall at the end of the creature comforts episode you were in it was announced on National TV that you fart during the night! So it can't be any worse than that!

I'll thank you NOT to bring that up again, Mr. Amanshu! It was taken out of context (the context being that we were discussing lies that Kelly tells), mistakes were made, we regret any embarrassment that was caused, our thoughts go out to the families, etc etc. Now let's leave it at that!

(please?)

Oay, okay, Mr Malcolm I promise never to bring that up again either in or out of your presence.

(unless of course it's really funny that is, special rules apply then, obviously...)

I can't tell you how much it has brightened up my day to see Kelly and Malcolm's odyssey part two in the 'Quirkies' section on Ananova. The story is two above 'Nine hurt in fight over pigeon'. Quirkies is now my word of the day - brilliant!

I was just idly wondering if someone somewhere hadn't put the wording of the by-law on the net and I discovered that it's also legal to shoot a welshman with a bow and arrow in Chester. Interesting.

And, according to a very drunk and very hairy man we met at the event in the Knavesmire pub the other night, to shoot a Russian in Hull. To be honest I think he was talking rubbish, but there you go.

Well, we all know the things that were going on in the Knavesmire that night, don't we? It wouldn't have been the strangest thing to have been said...

This morning I received an email from a friend telling me about your walk. He seemed to think it was a fun enough idea that he should tell people about it...

The best bit is he didn't know I knew you guys.

What have you unleashed?

Hooray - that's absolutely brilliant! Perhaps we have indeed created a new urban legend!

Thank you for letting us know - it's greatly entertained my otherwise uneventful Thursday.

This is turning into a phenomenon!

What are the chances of you getting a police spokesperson to give the 'official' word on the legality of shooting Scots in York?

Trouble is, though, if the official word was "it's utter rubbish - an urban legend without any basis" (which, sadly, I fear it might be) then it might rather put a dampener on things!

I think you'd be okay. After all your petition doesn't state that it is true, just that you've heard it to be true...

And anyway, wouldn't it be nice to know for sure?

I wonder if there'd be a public outcry if it was revealed that you are in fact a Scot yourself?

Shhh.... I managed to live for four years in York dodging the crazed gangs of archers that sometimes roam the streets. Don't tip them off now or they might decide to try and finish the job!
