There are a lot of heroes that never receive the recognition they deserve. They wander on, still doing their best, still going above and beyond the expectations of their peers and yet their trophy cabinet remains empty. It’s not as if they do what they do for the silverware though; they do it because nobody else can.
I would like to offer a warm slightly moist hug to those people and things. I open up my arms and welcome them into the happiness of my bosom, sometimes with a sympathetic tap to the head and a quiet word in their ear.
For there are many who don’t realise that without them the world would be a much darker place. I hope you all will join hands and put down your slush puppies, in that order, to slap a high five in the general direction of…

I think one or the other. Either Andy and Pandy, or Billy and Elliot. Don’t mix and match.
Too complicated. I’ll never remember thems. I’m gonna label them ‘Roads’ and ‘not Roads’.
…Look at that bridge!
Have you ever been able to get through one whole day without saying that? It’s practically your catchphrase.
I’ll get it EMBLAZENED upon a t-shirt for you.
A day? I can’t normally make it to the end of an hour.
I spells it rong.
If you didn’t say it though how would the millions of fans take it? They’ve travelled all the way from Japan and the US for nothing? You’d get raked in the funnies.

‘Cos if they don’t I might have to chin them. You know, because that’s what people do, right?
I haven’t asked. I consider a man’s elbows to be his own private kingdom. I’ve no business there.
Right, so what you’re saying is that when I start pezzling members of the public you’ll keep the car running?
