Some really good captions folks, and nice to see some references to my book too. But the winner has to go to Shadow, as that really did make me giggle. :lol: :lol:

When I was above myself, I was a curious pair.
My lower feet still trod the ground; my uppers trod the air.
I said I must come down a peg, I know not where I stand.
So, reaching up, I pulled my leg and took myself in hand.

I think they have been on as recently as this year, as they did a new campaign to find 'the next Milk Tray Man' :-D

Well done, Pete! :-D
