Blimping Heck !

Clarets Blimp RIP

The LT have reported that Burnley FC have not received any sightings of the 20-foot minature Zeppelin.

Vandals had cut free the helium-filled blimp minutes before it had chance to make its debut at its first Turf Moor Championship game last month.

Police are looking for the culprits and anybody hearing a friend or family member with a strangely higher squeaky voice than normal are asked to contact the Lancashire Constabulary with immediate effect! If however its that bloke off Corrie, Ashley Whotsit then thats OK, as he has already been checked out.

Hot-air experts believe the helium-filled blimp could have travelled as far as Scotland and it is hoped it is returned quickly with Barry Robson tied underneath it!

Oh for heaven's sake come on its better than endlessly pontificating about transfer rumours!
