Dratted lay about! He needs to get heroing.

(Although, in Greek mythology, Hero was a female. The 'hero' of the story was Lysander)

Yesterday, when we darted together in the pub, he said he would be here without fail!



Pst... Hero was a priestess of Aphrodite and her lover was Leander, Lysander was the Spartan general who'se family defeated the Athenians... The name are very much alike though

Now, that would be silly. Seems to me a hero without a sword rates pretty low on the hero scale, eh?

Oops, totally forgot about the beam, silly me.
The bream would work if it was Gollum on the other side, Sdog

But having seen the size of the troll a big slab of meat would be more like it...

Now I have got this big chunk of meat in my arms, would somebody please open that %$#%& door? I left the keys on the table...
