The Fifth RPS Cracker Of Christmas

While we’re all curled up in our shared Christmas hibernation cocoon over the holidays, the site gets a little quieter. But fear not, for each day of the ho-ho-holidays there’s a Christmas cracker to pull! Oh, and of course, if you’re after more posts you might have missed, why not join our Supporter Program, and unlock dozens of new posts from the last year!

Meanwhile, you provide your own party hat, and we’ll provide the groaner of a gag.

    By ‘Supporter Program’ you of course mean ‘Supporter Programme’. As a site that it appears is almost entirely written in the UK, could you please keep up the UK spellings for those of us who like to chew our pipes and resent the Americanisation of every facet of everyday life? I’ll pre-empt the comments about historical accuracy and Pilgrim-father-more-Chaucerian-than-Dickens by saying that I don’t mind and use a relatively current Fowler as my guiding star.

    A: Electronic Arts Inc.’s Bleak House.

    ps It will be the first part of a trilogy. The others will be adaptations of The Pickwick Papers, and A Tale of Two Cities. They will be called, “Electronic Arts Inc.’s The Pickwick Papers”, and, “Electronic Arts Inc.’s A Tale of Two Cities”. Both will be out late 2018.
