The Beaker is Half-Full

I've been linked from the strange but frequently hilarious website of the Beaker Folk of Husborne Crawley. I think it's a very good spoof website, though if it turns out to be a pukka pagan fellowship, my apologies for laughing at you. This entry put me in mind of what we were subject to at training college:

Rules for Submission of Assignments - Druidic Ministerial Course
Note - these regulations are subject to amendment without warning and at random intervals. They will be posted on the Community website, which is run on a PC in Keith's garage. The website is liable to occasional service problems during the winter months, when it gets a bit damp in the garage. By the way, any password we give you won't work because we will also give you the wrong user ID.

All submissions are to arrive by the first Full Moon after the appropriate solstice or equinox. First Class Post is acceptable, but we prefer homing bitterns for delivery.

Assignments should be 1.7 spaced, printed in purple in Lucida font. An electronic version is to be emailed to It should be saved in BBC Wordwise format. Upon receipt of your submission, Keith will email you back to let you know you've named it wrong. He won't tell you why.

Always use the official cover sheet. You can tell the official sheet because it's slightly different to the one you've actually got. Cover sheets should be written in the Cyrillic script, using a magenta chinagraph pencil. Please do not use staples.
