win do not adjust your set! (updated with contest!)

this contest is: write a short story where some mytical creature (dragon, elf, goblin etc) or a historical/mythical person (joan of arc, vlad tepes etc) for some reson end up in the 70s london and met a flying circus character (note, in rel life, not just appared in a show) and what happens then. I would say minimun 5 pages if there wasnet online, but of that legnth.

be sure to chek you spelling and making sure to press enter now and again to shift collumns.
is it one thing my brain exploids of is it reading bing clumps of badly spelled words.

when you are done with the story PM it to me here on pythonline.
I will pick the winner on january 30th.

good luck!

here is the deal. I happen to own 2 copies of DNAYS, but I only need one. the extra copy I got is a reg 1, so it will be hard if not impossible to sell it here in sweden, we have reg 2 and besides I dont think many swedes have much intrest for that show. but throwing it away just dont seem right, so its been just laying around for a while and I didnt know what do do with it.

PS. it says on the picture there is gilliam-animations in it, but there is not, since he came around in the second season and none of those episodes where saved. :( but you have eric, terry j and mike + loads of the bonzos, bot acting and playing music

TheRealGilliamFan: I have a question. How much liberty can we take on the contest rules? I mean, does the meeting have to take place in 1970s London, necessarily? Couldn't the MP character time travel too? And does it have to be an historical person like Joan of Arc, or could it also be a contemporary person? I'm thinking a meeting between, say, Bush and MP character could be very funny -- just as an example.

I would like it to be in the 70s. yes.
but historical... well... what happened 3 years ago is also history, right? ;) so ok, on that one I am willing to bend a little. but I would still like it to be in the 70s
