“Out of this Business”

by pauland1707

What a sterling pair of chaps Hannibal Hayes and Kid Curry were. Robbing trains and banks, and in all the trains and banks they robbed they never shot anyone. This made our two latter-day Robin Hoods very popular with everyone except the trains and banks they robbed. Then they changed their names and made a telly programme starring Pete Duel (in the black hat) and Ben Murphy (in the brown hat), drank loads of whiskey, always got the bad guys, generally carousing around the joint having a hoot and riding horses.

You don’t remember them? Err, ask a grown-up. And while you’re at it see if there’s an enpty squeezy bottle, some brown sticky backed plastic and a bucket of feathers because we’re going to make a fabulous inedible chicken dinner for a family of Jamie Olivers. But it will only be shown in black and white and will only be available on televisions built before 1970 because that’s all we desewve. Arse.

Where were we? Robbing banks and trains. We do believe that is called irony.
