Where is Wymsey?
The Village is situated ten miles south south west of Watchester, the County Town of Lympshire in the south of England. Yes, but where is it? OK, take a map of England ( you can use a map of the whole UK but you won't need Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland). Now locate London and Birmingham, draw a line between them. Next locate the city of Exeter and draw two lines, one from Exeter to London and another from Exeter to Birmingham. (See figure one.)
Now bisect the angle whose apex is at Exeter, likewise the angle whose apex is London, as in figure two.
Next drop a vertical line from the intersection of the two bisections halfway to the base of the triangle. (Figure three.) That point is Wymsey.
Why do you keep going on about genetic modification? We're scared, aren't you?
What is the WebSpin Contortium? The contortium is an outstation of Lympshire Social Services that specialises in client/server relationships within a multimedia context, as it applies to online rural communities.
Is there a book? About Wymsey? Afraid not, the village sees it's future as being on-line. At least one villager saves each copy of the Wymsey Chronicle on his hard disk which is fast becoming a copious depository.
Is Nance or Nancy male or female? As you know, there is a gender issue here but thankfully these days edges are blurring. It is in the schizoid nature of rural life that bigotry and tolerance are frequent bedfellows.
What have you got against Belgium? Who? Oh, that Belgium. One of the Contortium members once spent a week there by mistake - she thought that she was on a tour of Moll Flanders country. She has never forgotten the way she was manhandled at the border after shouting out of the coach window, "Up the Walloon Underground."
What did happen in St Louis? Professor Field has not been forthcoming on this one, we only know what was reported in the Wymsey Chronicle. The Professor's field trips are legendary but this he's keeping under his hat.
Where Can I purchase Wymsey Treacle? As you know there is a good chance that the mine will re-open within the next year, we can also reveal that the Wymsey Post Office and General Store plans to be trading online by Christmas and the Post Mistress hopes to offer a number of Wymsey related items including Wymsey Torque the traditional hard cheese from Wymsey Bottom Farm.
Have sociologists studied Wymsey? Oh come on, give us a break!
LOL reporter, Blossom Chagrin met Basingstoke in a Greek cafe sandwiched between two gay bars in London's Soho. Basingstoke was wearing blue jeans, a navy sweater, Doc Martins and clear nail varnish. Throughout the interview he rolled his own cigarettes with one hand whilst drumming the table top with the other.
BC: It has been said that you have good reason to be shy of publicity.
BC: Where do you get your inspiration from?
BC: Where is the female interest in Wymsey?
At this point the interview was temporarily terminated whilst Drenzil Basingstoke used his mobile telephone to check the Wymsey web stats.
BC: Dr Brian Benbecula has suggested that Wymsey is either therapy or that it documents a process of individual disintegration.
BC: People speculate as to which Wymsey character is you.
BC: Do you write everything yourself?
BC: Shall I order some more coffee?
BC: A number of critics have described you as a misanthrope and I gather that a number countries have made it clear that you are not on their preferred list. How do you feel about that?
BC: Someone has said that at heart you are actually a teddy bear.
DB: You had no right to do that, no one speaks to her.
