Now that's what I call a tunnel

Now where was that tunnel entrance?We are going to have to fly to Ohio for the first international New Links Tunnel trip. The Cincinnati Subway System was never completed due to financial problems. Before the money ran out they did manage to build 7 miles of tunnel. This dwarfs our previous tunnel trips to the Byker Cully (approx 2/3 of a mile) and the Victoria tunnel which had less than a mile of the tunnel you could explore. In lieu of a link to the long awaited (delayed due to technical reasons - again!) Victoria tunnel report you will have to make do with the background info here.

This one is on Bungers after he sorts out our commercial arm. Also probably.

YAY to Bungers.

On the subject of Bungers, where is the Victoria Tunnel report or should i say what is todays excuse for its non-arrival?

mmChronic said...

His dog ate it...

The worst thing about the delay is that we've hyped it to death. It's going to have to be very good to live up to the hype. So good I confidently predict it will win the Pulitzer prize in 2007 when it is finally published.

His dog ate it??????????????????
What? His PC? One hungry dog that must be!

Or does he use pen and paper to file a web post?

Either way i'm having trouble believing this story.

That was my excuse for no homework at school!

mmChronic said...

I made it up - but it was just as believable as all the rest of the excuses so far. :)

Sheesh, I feel like I'm back at school again...

We should send Merg on a "Merg Investigates".

Get on the bus Merg!

Then we'll send you to see the "World's biggest ball of twine"... ;)
