Dirk to become TV star.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressrele...h/31/dirk.shtml

It is on the BBC so it must be true.

QUOTE
Anti-hero Dirk gently operates his eponymous detective agency based on the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. Perpetually broke, hopelessly chaotic and utterly infuriating, most people suspect Dirk is nothing more than a cheap conman. And they might be right but nevertheless his methods, though unusual, do often produce surprising results.


'old on though. Is it the same Dirk ????

It's a case of mistaken identify, Constable. Mistaken identity, I tell you. I'm innocent! hysterical.gif

Oh, he wanders off from time to time, sort of like Tiny Doctor Tim (Firesign Theatre reference for Fran). :lol:
I suspect he'll be back shortly, and bursting to record a short but sincere message for all 2 or 3 of his followers... :happyroll:

Hey Clutter! Great to see ya!

Can't wait for the further tales of Dirk!

Oh, and for those who would like to know a bit more about the Firesign Theatre reference, "Tiny Doctor Tim":

Waiting for the Electrician or Someone Like Him

Quote

"W. C. Fields Forever" is a plotless series of vignettes satirizing hippie culture and philosophy, through a parade of characters at a commune (referred to by a narrating character as "The 'Lazy O' Magic Circle Dudes Ranch and Collective Love Farm") who variously take drugs, eat "natural" foods, practice yoga and embrace Eastern religions. The commune's spiritual leader, "Tiny Doctor Tim", who speaks as if he is very drunk, appears to be a parody of counter culture figure Timothy Leary. The title was inspired by the American comedic actor W. C. Fields and the Beatles song "Strawberry Fields Forever".
