Susanne - if it ain't broke, break it!

No one yet? Hmm, maybe I should be a little more precise?

Somewhere in the desert...near Barstow...on the way from Los Angeles to LAS VEGAS...

smiley - tongueoutAt least *I* think that should ring a bell.

Okay, I'll take a different approach, forget the desert.

Any readers of the Rolling Stone magazine here? There have been at least 2 reports about the person you're looking for in the magazine this year. Terry Gillliam wrote something, too.

smiley - erm

Okay, so the Person we are looking for died last year. Not naturally. And there was a kind of extravagant funeral. Namely his ashes were shot out of a canon. People appearing at the funeral included John Kerry, Bill Murray and Johnny Depp. smiley - bigeyes

smiley - erm Sorry, this shrubbery seems to drag on a bit, I hope there is still someone out there looking for it.

The home of a black vegetable and his turnip obsessed companion will be where you find the next shrubbery.

You could have told everyone else where you found it at least :p

The black vegetable was an allusion to the first series when Edmund is naming himself and in perfect comedy bathos a thunder of music strums up as he announces himself as "The Black.... [bearing in mind we would have already seen the opening titles Blackadder]... Vegetable" until Baldrick recommmends adder instead. But if you didn't know that, how did you find the shrubbery? Hmm...

*greedy look in the eyes* I'll find the shrubbery next time around smiley - evilgrin
