The Foxer

Roman’s attempt to de-cobweb the defoxing annexe’s atrium using his hydrogen-filled RC model of the Hindenburg ended in disaster yesterday. I was out on a provisions run when I received the following text from Maxine  – ‘Oh the humanity! Hindenburg ablaze!’. Thankfully apart from some melted Matilda IIs on our Operation Battleaxe diorama and a gutted signalbox on our railway layout, all the damage was superficial. The sections of smoke-blackened ceiling are to be repainted over the weekend, and Roman has given me his word as a gentleman that no replica airships will be involved in the process.

Below is a list of ’30 Things That You Might Find in a Theatre’ (‘things’ is used here in its broadest possible sense, ‘theatre’ in its most theatrical). Entries have been stripped of vowels and had any inter-word spaces repositioned. For example, if ‘box office’ was present, it might appear as…

BXF FC

Thespian would be…

THSPN

The last five entries in the list – those marked with asterisks – are especially fiendish. Not only are they vowel-less, they have also been anagrammed.
