Operation Ashes Retrieval – Day 13 of 25 (via Thoughts from the Dustbin)

Operation continues

Agent Muss kicked opposition butts (again)
Agent Twat did good but is still unable to amass three figures.
Agent Smith was not bad and at least better than former Agent N (not difficult)

Opposition status – shite

Is computer jinxing things to say we might just win this one?

Report ends.

Operation Ashes Retrieval – Day 10 of 25 (via Thoughts from the Dustbin)

Operation status is as follows:

Mission = FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL

Computer identifies the following weaknesses:

  • lack of batsmen who can actually bat
  • lack of bowlers with any skill
  • lack of My Lord (possibly disputed)
  • lack of a captain who knows what he’s doing
  • complete lack of confidence, thus allowing the opposition to do better than they have a right to

Operation will soon run out of bowling agents to drop.
Computer recommends Agent N’s position be seriously reconsidered.
Injury of Agent Kat means the possible return of Agent Babyface Phil.

Computer is not happy.
Computer has to live amongst these bastards.

Operation suspended.

Report ends.

Operation Ashes Retrieval – Days 8 & 9 of 25 (via Thoughts from the Dustbin)

DAY 8

***Rated PG – contains scenes which may cause distress to some readers***
Its habitat now limited to the sun-baked suburbs of Melbourne and Sydney, this species has been hunted down cruelly by a man with a huge jaw, a guy wearing mascara and some South African prat. Its situation is now dire – it is in serious danger of extinction! 

These upsetting pictures show the extent of the damage done by the aggressors:

Please don’t leave them to suffer. They desperately need your help. You can do your bit to save this poor, endangered creature – the Australian test cricketer. Please dig deep!
Send all donations (and offers of real cricket) to
DAY 9

Status is as follows:

Agents Twat, Kat, Pup and Muss have attempted a comeback.
Computer registers that had they not completely failed in the first innings, this might be game on.

Agent P failed. Again.
Computer is sending a mail bomb.

Mission status – too little too late
Opposition status – bastards

Computer is ashamed to admit she is counting on bad weather to save the operation.
Computer is not ashamed to admit she dislikes Oppostion Agent Massive Jaw even more than ever.

Operation Ashes Retrieval – Day 6 of 25 (via Thoughts from the Dustbin)

Operation resumed at 1030 in the am local time.

By 1035 local time, operation was looking shite. 

Status is as follows:

Agent P successfully called the coin; Agent P chose to send Agents Twat and Kat to the middle.


Report on agents’ positions as follows:

Agent Kat – is probably having his fist surgically removed from Agent Twat as I write

Agent Twat – might want to speak a little louder, but still 51

Agent Clarke – possibly unlucky but still: ye gads!

Agent P – not good enough, again.

Agent Muss – Our Saviour, who did his best but it won’t be enough 93

Agent N – made it out of single figures, must be pleased. No one else is.

Agent Hads – nicely supported Agent Muss again, 56

Agents Harris, X, Sids and Bolly – 9 between them. Let’s hope they can bowl better.

Agents’ total for 10 hits – 245
Computer is not best pleased. Computer is down a fiver after betting agents wouldn’t make it to 200.

Mission status – epic fail
Opposition status – too bloody happy
