The Daily Rhino
Oooh being a blogger is like joining a club isn't it? A secret wonderful and exclusive club. Except for the fact that everyone knows about it (not too many) and anyone can join. Anyway, keen to be true to form and jump on another bandwagon, I have been inspired by blog-celebrity (I can't decide if that's a compliment or an insult) Anna at Sepia Mutiny to inflict 55 words on the general public. Or rather the four people who pretend to read this. Like all blog-related crazes or online competitions, it is a poorly-disguised vehicle for showing off. So I like it!

“That was easy”
And just to show I'm not THAT weird...
Asif surveyed the interrogation room as Detective Francis of Scotland Yard’s anti-terrorism squad bumbled in. Francis was searching in his case, “Sorry, I seem to have misplaced my list of secret Al Qaeda officials.”
Asif spoke up, "oh it’s okay, I’ve got one” and pulled a piece of paper out from his sock.
“A ha! Gotcha!”
Don't worry, I'll be sticking to the day job.
