Letter to: 'Neil Oliver, Scottish/long hair/loves cliffs/stands staring into middle distance on rocks'


'On Beeny Cliff'

Having learned that even letters address as generically as 'Neil Oliver, Scotland' reach TV's smouldering archaeologist, the Ragged Ramblers saw an opportunity to put pen to paper and here's the result:

Addressed to 'Neil Oliver, Scottish/long hair/loves cliffs/stands staring into middle distance on rocks'


"Dear Mr. Oliver, 


I like your long hair. I like the way it flaps in the wind on Coast, wild and free, flapping like you are a Hardy hero brooding on Beeny Cliff. My son, Timotei, grows his hairs in the long fashion too, fresh and strong. Have you ever caught your hair in an extractor fan? Timotei has! He climbed up on our avocado bath and - whoosh - that was it...


All those years ago when you used to stand in a trench with some other man, I sensed that you yearned for so much more. It pleases me that you dig the old still and are Scotland... but not the independence. Your hair is much more that television’s Alice Roberts - public science understanding and all that! Do you prefer the traces left by long-dead humans to the living detritus we are forced to endure time alongside? (I am a scarcely sentient water-bag.)


My mother is 86 now and when I mention you she snarls, ‘Miserable cunt!’, but, rest assured Mr Oliver, I always threaten to smother the dotty old bat with a pillow if she potty-mouths you -  and then she desists. She is angry with you because she believes that you dug a trench and buried, ‘that nice Nicholas Crane’ in it. She also says that archaeologists befuddle the public with gloves and ‘ritual’ when they really don’t have a clue about the purpose or meaning of an artefact  - that’s mother for you! 


Yours sincerely,

Lambert Mundesley"

  1. Ha ha! My sentiments exactly. Never trust a man who pretends to enjoy eating rotten shark to a fake Viking restauranteur was always my mother's motto, and she called a cunt a cunt.

  2. I am James Stood from New York, United States, I am really excited about the work of DR. ZUMA, if not for him, I could have committed a suicide by now, or join my ancestors now, my wife left me with our two kids without having any misunderstanding, I tried to console her to come back to me, nothing was working out, I tried my best to have her back, I begged her, kneeled before her and begged her in tears, her no was still NO, she said she is not interested in the relationship anymore, I cried all through running up and down the streets, family relatives all to have her back because I missed her a lot mostly my children, I was not even seeing their faces at all. After a week, she brought a divorce letter to me for me to sign, I looked up and down, tears rolled down and I was frustrated, I told her, I will have to think about it. To God be all the Glory, I was directed by a friend of mine to a specialist world best known male Love Spell Caster called DR. ZUMA, I speak to her on phone, emailed each other all the time and he told me not worry about anything at all, I should relax my mind and calm down that my wife is going to come back before the week runs out, he also said he don’t charge for any of spell works, all I have to do is to provide the money needed for him to buy the materials to cast the love spell on her, I send to him and after two days he mailed and said he is done with the work, that my wife is going to come back in three days time with our children and she will kneel before me and begged in tears and promise not to leave me with any heart break again and she will cancelled the divorcement letter. I hacking into the words of DR. ZUMA and believed in him, all to my greatest surprise the words of DR. ZUMA came to pass and my wife now love me and we are now living together as one. I don’t have anything to say thank you to DR. ZUMA so I have to tell the world about him and you also can find a favor in him by contacting him on his email address spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com Whatsapp: +1(506)800-1647

  4. Mr Oh Liver appears now to be the spokesperson on all things Skottish, where independence has a jolly with independent thinkers. His plummy posh tones betray a fool of the educated variety; he likens to think his coffuired barnet and face whiskers resemble a bad man in an even badder movie about skots people. Alas, he's too much prettie boy to wield a claymore, preferring his distressed shoes of brogue and his cavalry twill garments to save the skots kuntry from the tyranny of imposed nationalist evils...

    Some see Mr oh liver as the rugged face of a Utopian skotslaands. Mr kneel Oh liver this way thinks too, perhaps. A fossilised Mr Ollie Kneel would be a splendid find neath the soil of Glencoe.

    To boldly go and all that....

  10.  Hello Blog Admin and anyone reading this , I was diagnosed of herpes and Hiv at the age of 24, and it runs my life until I came to know of Dr Itua herbal center- thankfully after drinking Dr itua herbal medicines for two weeks I'm completely cured which really helped me now I've had no limit how much I do massively. I had two jobs, one full time and one part time, have my horse to care for and would also help friends with their horses. Have since had to accept that I only have one job (to take care of my health) and still care for my horse with help... Dr Itua also cures all sorts of chronic illness and diseases like Herpes,Hiv/Aids,Cancer,Kidney Disease,Liver Diseases,Hepatitis,Lupus,HPV,Diabetes,COPD, And other health conditions anyone may have in their body. Dr Itua uses his herbal medicineTo cure those diseases.
    Visit his herbal website www.drituaherbalcenter.com/shop or email drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com This is an illness I wouldn't wish on my enemy
