Fruit Wars Return!

Postby TheGuvnorsMoll » Tue Feb 23, 2016 1:33 pm

Listen up, you Freds! Great Uncle Manfred will be 143 years old on Thursday and the annual Fruit Wars begin tomorrow and last until Monday. Since it is a Leap Year we get an extra day of fighting!

So stock up well on your fruits and see you at the battleground tomorrow!

Nuts are the fruits of the tree so they count. But only for this war. You have now inspired the Nut Wars which will begin in April as that is when my birthday is.

I attack everyone from behind, throwing apples that pack a powerful punch. Better for attack than they are for eating, in my opinion.

I knot together many strips of fruit leather in order to make a sturdy net, and launch it over your army.

Lychees - the fruit from hell!

Have some of these as it's Great Uncle Manfred's 143rd birthday (and also lovely Doctor Ledin, who is 64). *Fires tangerines*

Now fully recovered from Uncle Manfred and Doctor Ledin's joint birthday do! Uncle Manf makes potent brews so he does. Doctor Ledin calls them the Barbarian Brew and even referenced them in one of his songs. (In 'I've Got Something' he sings the lyric 'Had a taste of the Barbarian brew'). This pleased Uncle Manf as he saw it as free publicity for his wares. Uncle Manf is 7' tall.

Now for the serious bit! Go, man, go! (fires mangoes).

I like grapefruit without sugar. You're supposed to throw them at the opposition not hand them out. It's a war, remember!

You will spend the next week mucking out the Ergitan bird cages, trimming their talons and walking the Griffosaurs.
