Tinklea Geo has informed MO that they have observed “pamphleteering” occurring on “da street.” MO and Co (unable to get aff site), were curious whether this pamphlets were of a spiritual or political content..or was it just discount vouchers for Breiwicks Banacle Blasting services….
MO has tried this service before and although you get a smooth finish on the day, they come back twice as much and thicker and harder. MO prefers to smear grease below the water mark which stops the little blighters getting a grip in the first place. MO would advise that this method might be deployed in order to stop “prospective” members from getting a tight grip on you and boring you to rigidity when you are trying to get to Tesco/Coop. You should also smear any children in your charge with grease just in case.
MO is aggrieved that they have been missed by the Electoral Register therefore will not be voting. Consider MO to be in a huff re politicing and pamphleteering.
Muckle O wis intruiged as to when a 'pamphlet' became a 'booklet', a 'brochure', a 'folder', a 'leaflet' etc.......as dis could be vital information for any budding pamphleteer. The definition is....a pamphlet is:
1. An unbound printed work, usually with a paper cover.
2. A short essay or treatise, usually on a current topic, published without a binding.
a picture of a 'pamphlet'
the word pamphlet is derived from several sources - in Middle English it is pamflet, from Medieval Latin pamfletus, from Pamphiletus, diminutive of Pamphilus, amatory Latin poem of the 12th century, from Greek pamphilos, beloved by all : pan-, pan- + philos, beloved.

donna nook - a bombing range on the coast of Lincolnshire, England, north of the village of North Somercotes. The area is salt marsh, and is used by the numerous Royal Air Force bases in Lincolnshire for bombing practice; known as RAF Donna Nook. The resident locals and associated wildlife fare surprisingly well, and seem to have become accustomed to aircraft bombing them on a regular basis.
captain hook - a fictional character created by the author JM Barrie. The character appeared in several of Barrie’s Peter Pan novels and has perhaps become most famous as the comical and cowardly arch villain in the Disney film version of Peter Pan. In the Barrie version Captain Hook is the arch enemy of Peter Pan - the boy who will never grow up. Here he is a more fearsome villain, reputed to have been the Bosun of the infamous pirate Blackbeard and the only man that Long John Silver was scared of. Captain Hook hates Peter Pan so much because he was the reason behind him losing his hand (which he had replaced with a hook as was common at the time). Hook’s hand was eaten by a crocodile which now follows him around obsessively as it wants to eat more of him! He uses his hook to good effect however as (according to the author) he likes nothing better than plunging it into his enemies........
