Overshadowed by Bow Wow

Really catching up - 5th post in an hour. Had been a really good weekend on the stump. Good support, sometimes from surprising sources, and a good bit of publicity in local papers - and then all my efforts are rendered as nothing by Bow Wow, the new name by which we know my political opponent Lembit Opik, MP for Montgomeryshire. I just couldn't believe it. Three full pages in today's Mail on Sunday. Stunning publicity. No surprise he was lording it around the fantastic Welsh Food Festival, held at Glansevern Hall at my village of Berriew this afternoon. You really should read this article. It will have brought great joy to so many. It would be a shame to be left out. Just in case you don't have time to read the whole thing, I will just highlight bits that caught my eye.

So often a headline tells the story. This one certainly does. It reads 'Bow Wow loves me, and I love Bow Wow'. Its seems that Bow Wow's future mother-in-law, Margit Irimia has been telling the MoS that her daughter Gabriela has been over to Romania for some corrective surgery after a 'boob job' which "left one facing to the left and one facing to the right". This sounds rather painful, and I duly sympathise. Anyway, Lembit went to visit with a "huge, extravagant" bouquet of flowers signed "Love from Bow Wow". It seems that 'Bow Wow' is now the preferred catchphrase - so who am I to argue. I think it could catch on.

I often call my wife 'Pet' - but it just doesn't have the same ring to it somehow. Which, of course is why Bow Wow gets three full pages in Britain's most widely read Sunday Newspaper - and I have to be satisfied with a few lines in the Montgomeryshire County Times and the Shropshire Star. It just isn't fair. I'm going to have to re-think my publicity strategy.

It should be noted at this time that the expression bow wow usually comes from a dog.

No change there, I venture to suggest.

Your pomeranian pal.

OOooh! Heaven forfend Mam.

You know quite well that Lembit has a penchant for wonky women, something to do with his own wonkiness, I suppose. In particular, the ones with nipples under their armpits.

How can you wish this upon a lady of such sylphlike symmetry as the fragrant and delightful Mrs. D.

You papillary pal.

johnny - fragrant is a very apt word to describe Mrs D - but how do you know. Maybe you are not such a foreigner after all!

Valleys Mam said...

Mea Culpa Johnny and Glyn and of course the fragrant Mrs D. Sudden rush of blood to the head I guess.
Apparently twas Bow Wows sis in law who had the boob job anyway.
Glyn enjoyed your Radio Wales programme

Glyn:

How do I know?

You haven't seen the size of my nose. Fnarf, fnarf.

Mam:

I understand that the lady in question has recently undergone corrective surgery.

I do hope that she's not feeling too wuff.

Your Pinnochiotic pal.
