|It makes a change from Lion, I suppose......|
Thanks for your correspondence. For the record, I am aware that a zylophone (note the deliberate use of the letter Z here, please don't complain) has wooden keys and that those on a glockenspiel are metal.
I had intended this to be a joke, albeit not the funniest one ever made on this blog (this can be found here), but a joke nevertheless. I have taken your concerns on board and apologise for any confusion arising as a result of this misleading post.
I am happy to set the record straight and will endeavour to ensure that this does not happen again.
This, by the way, changes nothing in regard to the anti-X campaign that I launched earlier this week.
If anything, events since then have strengthened my case.
Take, for instance, a book that The B picked out at the library two or three days ago . . . .
It's called ABC UK.
It is - in some regards, at least - a regular alphabet book.
The twist, according to the blurb on the back, is that it centres around 'all things British [and is an] Amazing, Brilliant, Creative alphabet celebration of the UK and its vibrant cultural identity'.
The B&G love it and I like the fact that L is for Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, R is for Robin Hood and V is for Vindaloo.
It all goes awry, however, at the X, which is - according to the authors, at least - for Kiss (the theory, that 'some of the most wonderful love stories in the world come from Britain').
Forget glockenspiels, this is misleading.
Come back xylophone, all is forgiven . . . .
