Day 81: The Mating Call Of The Crazy Purple Minion

It’s the sequel you demanded! Sort of…

I think this crazy purple minion has fallen in love with today’s Nike Bleachers. That sound he’s emitting can surely only be a mating call. “Fancy the one on the right,” he’s thinking, “but why do they always have to drag their ugly friend along with them?”

What is it with you lot and Minions? First I Tweet, “Give me some ideas for a photo with a yellow theme.”

“Minions!” you respond.

Then a few days later I Tweet, “How about a photo to go with some purple trainers?”

“Minions!” you reply.

Who says audiences don’t want to see the same thing all over again in a sequel?

Brief blog today. Off to Brighton at a ridiculously early hour of the morning. Might blog again later. From the Grand Hotel, where I’ve got a sea view room!

I was considering recreating the opening scene from Doctor Who’s “The Leisure Hive” for tomorrow’s blog, but the TARDIS prop wouldn’t  fit in my rucksack. Plus, only about three people would have got the reference.
