Quick! Untie us before they realise you're not a God, you're just an American. (From that film!)

I should bally well say I am old fruit!

As far-fetched as Biggles Looks Back was, I found the opening dialogue between Biggles and Von Stalhein very interesting. Biggles was supposedly so hurt by the "Affair of the heart" that he couldn't move on from Marie Janis. This was offered as an explanation for the lack of women in Biggles' (fictional) life...

One of the things that irks me about a lot of televesion shows and novels is the need to include a (genital) "warts and all" description of the characters' backgrounds. This includes their requisite love interests. What's wrong with a book or TV show that depicts a character performing their job or profession without having to have a bit of crumpet (or fruity English muffin) on the side?!? :shock:

Yet we saw the opposite with WEJ's books. to increase book sales to children there was the no alcohol, no sex no bad language etc rules applied by the publisher. Pandering to the public for profit.

And in the good old days, 'cheerful' would have been one synonym for 'gay'. It is a great shame that 'gay' was ever adopted in its current meaning because it's a good word - or was :(

WEJ does use the word "gay" in its cheerful sense a couple of times in the books. It does stick out as being odd now.

Talking of which has anyone else noticed in Biggles Takes a Hand when Biggles and Anna are passengers on the aeroplane Biggles says "Look at what I am holding in my lap" :o - It was only his police badge but nevertheless it came as quite a shock ;)

that bit always made me giggle too! Glad to know I'm not the only one on the forum with a slightly dirty mind! :D :D
Those that live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

I went to the museum and saw a Van Gogh painting. Underneath it said "Loaned anonymously."
I went to the front desk and said, "I’d like my Van Gogh back now, please."

There's an entire paragraph at the beginning of a chapter in Flies East which could be very artfully interpreted, as I remember, should one wish to.
