I have been away for a while, but last night prompted me to come up with this one --

The pale faces, glowing orbs and chittering howling laughter chased through his dreams. Who says clowns aren't scary?

Actually, Torchwood was originally the production team's internal codename for the revived Doctor Who series, precisely BECAUSE it was an anagram. The Torchwood institute idea came later.

I think that I shall never see
a poem lovely as a tree.
So I cut the tree; to paper I made it
both for poems and also the toilet.

Admit it, you borrowed that poem from Hearty White.

Not at all. I'm not a big fan of Mr. white (yet) and didn't even know who he was until you linked one of his videos recently.

Furthermore, he clearly has not done anything close to this homage. I doubt if he could give it the same, layered, nuanced, awe-inspiring treatment, anyway. :P :roll: :D

So you missed his segment at the end of Episode 231.

I'm about 3-4 weeks behind on my "entertainment" podcast listening (too many right-wing, hate-speech casts to get through). So I haven't heard 231 yet; probably get to it later today.

Okay, then. Please reread your poem before the White segment at the end.

OK, I found that segment and listened to it. I must say it was scored quite well (¿credit to Norm or Mr.White?) and sufficiently amusing.

I now suspect that you were less leveling an outrageous and incongruous libel of plagiarism ಠ_ಠ, and more implying that mine was the mythical poem that was rejected thusly. :(

Note that I wrote that particular twabble around June-ish of last year, so I suppose it might possibly have leaked out, maybe.

Do we need to meet upon the field of honor with rusty muskets at the ready?
