Goon Show Anagram Competition!

Wednesday, 27 September 2017

As we're just a single pledge away from reaching 35% funding, how would you like to win a copy of Memories of Milligan signed by Norma Farnes? Or The Goon Show Compendium Volume Six, Series 7, Part 2 on CD? Or perhaps you'd prefer London Entertains, Climb up the Wall and Calling All Cars on a Region 0 DVD?

The prizes may seem familiar from a previous update but due to a lack of entries (sob!), Name That Goon has been abandoned.

For a chance to win one of the prizes, all you have to do is unscramble the five anagrams below to reveal some Goon Show characters:

1. Cherry Nun

2. Crummy Joint Ratio

3. Join Bad London Smoker

4. Inane Nib Minster

5. Strengthen Yuppy Lechery

Email your answers to me at by Friday 6 October 2017. The first correct entry drawn on the following day will be given the first choice of prizes, the second will choose from the remaining two and the third drawn will receive the final of the three prizes. If no one gets all the answers right, I'll draw from those who have the most correct.

The competition is only open to supporters of Glarnies, Green Berets & Goons so if you're not currently on the list of supporters and want to enter, simply pledge over on the right-hand side of this page before the closing date.

Good luck!
