When in Looe
What do you do?
Do you do as the Looeovians do?
Do all roads lead to Looe?
Was Looe built in a day?
Or a bay?
Are you in love with Looe?
Is she your mistress?
Does she cause you distress?
I am assuming that Looe is a lady
And not a malady!
Do you love or hate Seagulls covered in Marmite?
Do you hate to be asked too many questions?
Shall I stop asking you them?
Are you happy now?
“And here are the top 10 in Looe’s latest Arts and Entertainment Chart.
At number 10 we have
‘Funny Gull’ – a film and musical about Fanny Brice and starring Barbra Streisand.
A missed skiing opportunity at number 9 is ‘Chalet Gull’ with Gull Bailey (film)
‘The Calendar Gulls’ romps into the top ten at number 8 – it’s a WI film involving scones, I hear.
Number 7 is a situation that we really don’t want to see – ‘Gull on a Train’ – a book by Paula Hawkins
‘The Gullenium Trilogy’ (‘The Gull with the Dragon Tattoo’ / ‘The Gull Who Played With Fire’ / ‘The Gull Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest’) (books and films) by Stieg Larsson are all in at number 6
Numero 5 this week is ‘Gull, Interrupted’ a book by Susanna Kaysen (and you really don’t want to interrupt a gull!)
And if you didn’t know Sweden had kings, a gull saved one! ‘The Gull Who Saved The King of Sweden’ (book) by Jonas Jonasson is at 4.
No! Not that one! ‘The Other Boleyn Gull’ a book by Philippa Gregory is just into the top three is heading off at number 3.
In the naughty corner at 2, we have ‘Bad Gulls’ (also a book) by Jacqueline Wilson (are there any other types of gull?)
And topping the Gull charts this week is ‘Me and My Gull’ a musical that involves a gull and a pasty-faced guy.
That’s the chart – back soon with more Looe charts for your bemusement.
