    ...but will he be a benevolent or malevolent ruler? The open hand or the clenched fist?

    Ah, bugger it, mine's a rum and dandelion & burdock...

    When I saw Warren's blog post on this, I at first thought the title read, "Si Spurrier, New Whitechapel Batman." And then I realized I'd misread the last word. Now I'm just kind of disappointed that "Batman" isn't going to become a new honorific on Whitechapel...

    But anyway, greetings to our new overlord and Batman. I'm very much looking forward to WISH YOU WERE HERE.

    horrible temptation to edit Si's account now

    Okay, I'll de-lurk too.

    REleased from the increasingly tedious Benbo: I'll set up camp here. More creative spirits and all.

    Hello y'all!

    I can totally do the voice, if someone's got some spare calpol.

    PORK SCRATCHINGS?

    More English food that sounds like disease.

    Hell, a beer's a beer, no matter the bastard serving it.

    @Doctor Pockets, speaking as a Brit there's little to suggest that Pork Scratchings aren't a disease.

    Very cool. Gives me good feeling in the gutty wuts. Long Live the Barman.

    Welcome Sir! Be sure to throw in your pet peeves or rules list at some point, you know, like the NO CRYING IN WHITECHAPEL rule, and TIME MOAT whenever someone starts arguing about continuity or physics or somesuch.

    Huh? Someone's in charge here?

    I assume like any good "transitional government," many of the old guard will find themselves up against the wall, to wit I Say "viva la revolucion!" (which I believe is French for "please don't shoot me.")

    Is it wrong my first thought, like Renthing, was "but what about the arse eels?"

    God help you sir, you're inheriting a hell of a thing.

    (and a big thanks to everyone at Avatar for making this place possible)

    Is Si old enough to drink, let alone run a pub?

    Never, ever ask the barkeep if they're old enough to drink.

    @El Spurioso

    Nobody wants to belong to a forum ravaged by poorly-disciplined rectal anguilliformes.

    You know...I never thought I'd say this about someone training arse eels to be "better", but, er, thank you?

    Are you leaving forever or just stepping down in as much of an active capacity? I mean, Whitechapel just wouldn't be the same without you occasionally popping into the Vile Hugging thread to tell us how much you hate it.

    (And, quite honestly and not that it matters much, I'd be terribly sad to see you go).
