WOP At Christmas: A Snowy Solution!

Merry Christmas Pooters! We hope you're enjoying the festive holiday and now ready to tuck into some mince pies with the WOP Dairy Custard*
Whilst there may be some of us that will wake up Christmas Morning to a blanket of snow, most of us look set to miss out on a White Christmas again this year (despite the cold weather lately!)
However, one thoughtul resident of Herne Bay in Kent has come up with an answer - a WOP Sno-blaster Machine (£670.00 from the WOP Winter Goods Dept) - so at least one part of Kent will see some snow!

Happy Christmas Pooters!

WOP At Christmas: Neville's Christmas Message

Well...it was only a matter of time. Nev had requested to do one since May but we had to insist that he waited until Christmas time. Here it is, in all it's tooth-some glory.....!

Merry Christmas Pooters!

WOP At Christmas: Kevin Ketley!

Christmas just wouldn't be the same without some festive music and trust us, this Christmas won't be the same. Especially if you get the forthcoming CD from Kevin Ketley 'I'm Dreaming Of A White Kevin'. (available from the WOP Shop and selected 24 hour garages soon at only £3.99)
Crammed full of seasonal showstoppers such as Silent Night and I Caught Momma Doing Something With Santa.


To give you a little taster of what to expect from the album, here is a little erm...taster.

No one does medleys like our Kev!

If this doesn't get you in the mood, then you might as well forget Christmas altogether. No, really.

Warning: this video does contain Artbear's usual trademark outbursts!

Merry Christmas From Artbear!

Nev's Travelogue: Rye, Sussex

Neville Does Rye! A WOP Christmas Special Report.

As we're approaching another Christmas, Neville has done this one off seasonal special. He took himself off to the ancient East Sussex town of Rye, just a couple of miles over the Kent Border. ''Well, I thought I'd brave it and have a holiday!'' He spluttered with pride.

So what did Nev think of this lovely little cinque- port town? Read on......!



Rye is a nice little town, I liked it anyway and that's all that matters. Best of all, it had a VC! Not surprising really, with all the history there is of the town and it's people. I met Ron in the Old Concubine Inn ( I popped in there for a weak shandy and a crisp) and he told me that Rye is associated with smuggling. He went on to say that he had a van load of pirate Jason Donovan Cd's in his Bedford van if I was interested. So that's this years Christmas shopping done!









This is Cheestring Street! I am not aware of any family connections with the town, so this must have been a coincidence. Actually, I got it wrong - this is in fact Church Square. I don't know why I said that. Anyway, lovely buildings on her.... See that building on the right? The one with the white weatherboards? Nice innit?










This was the museum/visitor centre! My heart was pounding as I climbed the steep cobbled street to get to her. Imagine my disgust though when I found out it was closed because it was out of season. Why? WHY???!!!! Looks nice from the outside though, so I had to make do with this shot for now. I'll be back though...oh yes. And next time, I will be in season.




This is one of the ancient churches in the town. Not sure what this one is called...St. Someone. I didn't have time to take any rubbings on this occasion but I did sit on a bench in the churchyard and ate my scotch egg which I bought from the local butcher shop. Nice shop - and a nice egg.

All in all I loved the town and I will go back perhaps when things are open a bit. I am determined to see what is within the fortified Visitor Centre...ooooh she's a tease!

Join me again. Join me.

The Most Extravagant Branch Of Wetherspoons?

Firstly, another apology! The pages of WOP have been rather quiet since Halloween. The other half of the WOP team has recently been taking up late night knitting classes. Still, he knows what he's doing........

Our roaming eye has been around Kent again recently - and spotted this branch of Wetherspoons in Folkestone. Can there be a more over the top and extravagant building for this pub????
Let us know if you see one!

Kev gets the strangest jobs, and this is certainly up there. This is one of the fastest sports going, so you really do have to keep your eyes on this footage....blink - and it's over!



Oh and yes - we don't know why the WOP Sport Logo was missing from the video after upload either.... It doesn't matter.

So to start us off, the WOP shop has launched it's new range of Halloween merchandise with this, the 'Nev-Witch' being one of our special treats this season. No tricks!

So why not send your kids off into the cold hostile night waving one of these about?

Give in...buy the Nev-Witch today!

Kevin Ketley Reports: Herne Bay Festival 2009

Well.....yes it's time for more ad-lib from our sports expert, Kevin Ketley. Quite why he gets given these commentating jobs that has nothing to do with sport remains a bit of a mystery - but he needs the work.
This time he is in Herne Bay for the opening parade at the start of the week long festival.

Sadly we don't get coverage of the fireworks that followed, Kevin had discovered a pub nearby and he was there for most of the festival. He's drying out even now.


Still, he knew what he was doing.....


video

More Naughty Finds!

Firstly one must apologise for a quiet spell here on the pages of WOP over the past few weeks. Don't worry, this is the calm before the poot. Plans are currently being made for some cracking poot productivity soon!

In the meantime.....more substandard posting.


Our roving eye has been alerted to yet another saucy product on sale. Not in Deal for a change or anywhere in Kent this time! This was at......of all places.....the shop in The Science Museum in London!

Heaven knows what Einstein would have made of this. E=Mc saucy!


Thursday, August 27, 2009

More finds in Deal!

It seems that the shopkeepers in Deal, Kent are keeping up their commitments to all things poot-worthy.... Just what are these dinosaurs up to on this packaging design for childrens' hankerchiefs?????

Into The Family....Further!

As a special bonus exclusive what-not additional feature of the video 'Into The Family' here's your chance to see the bloopers, behind the scenes footage and all the other bits you weren't meant to see! Including some of the characters out of disguise....oh dear!

As ever, the best stuff usually is the bits that are cut out. When will we learn? When??

So sit back.....etc.....enjoy!

Warning: this video contains a strange smell under the sink that we can't seem to shift.

Pat: A further look into the life of Pat Onionring

Following on from his debut apprearance in the previous video 'Into The Family' Pat Onionring has a little spotlight of his own. Neville's cousin shows us his pets and his interesting DVD collection.

Welcome to the WOP family, Pat -you're rather Schpeschial!


video

Into The Family!

Introducing Pat Onionring - cousin of Neville Cheestring!

Nev got most tea-towel set about WOP'S latest 'Into The....' video. This was to be something quite personal for him - a chance to meet more of his family! Or at least the ones that will admit to being a relative of his.

In this one, we meet Pat Onionring, his computer expert cousin, who works for Sussex County Council.

So sit back and erect a makeshift woodpile - as we go into the family..........

Neville Cheestring Visits Deal

First our Nev' went to Wye station to see what electrically hauled gems were on offer, now he's in Deal! You can't keep him away from his official WOP train spotting duties. However, a truly unexpected find was to be had at the station. As he got closer to the station gates, his working eye widened in boyish delight. A collection of exquisite Pullman coaches were in the station, presumably part of a holiday special. It doesn't matter why they were there - Nev just ran to the platform and whipped out his camera to record this truly historic gem.


video

Neville said ''I just couldn't believe my luck! A lovely train of Pullman's in classic maroon and cream livery. Stuff of legend! It's just a pity some small person ran in to my closing shot as she was vanishing into the distance. A real pity. ''

Even More....!


It didn't end there either, although perhaps it should have. When Neville got back to home base, he found an old London Routemaster bus parked outside the railway station.



Neville stuttered ''Look at her, all on her own waiting for her next load of passengers. They will never come though, what is she doing out of London??! Sheer madness...and disorder. I don't like it. I can't help but feel sorry for her......''

Never mind, Neville....never mind.

Nev's Move Into Road Improvement Vehicle Spotting...

Recently, there was a bit of road re-surfacing taking place near Nev, so he popped down there and took these lovely images for WOP. He went with an open mind but came back feeling quite refreshed having done something a 'little different'.

''Trains are one thing - they are a supreme untouchable force, but I thought I'd take this rare chance to spot some lovely road working traffic for a change.'' He said. ''I didn't realise the amount of work needed to lay a new surface of road down, my good eye was opened!''

Nev was also relieved that he didn't get his 'asphalt' on this occasion.




''Look at her - tearing up the old surface with ease....''




''Lovely conveyor type rigging on her''



''It was getting dark and way past my bed time, but I stuck around for this moody shot. Lovely Hi Vis Clothing''.

Eeeh..more things you see!

Well, I was astounded by my most recent finding in Whitstable, Kent, this week! It seems this local plumbing company has branched out into relationship advice. Makes sense to me!



No need to thank us for the free advertising chaps - It was worth it!

Guess The Sitcom!

Yes, it's quiz time yet again! Time to give the grey matter a good going over - what's grey matter? It doesn't matter...and that's all that matters!

So you've got 11 clues played out by the Fluffy Players. Yes they've moved into videos now, they were getting bored with posing for still images. More money too.

Can you guess all of the sitcoms? Can you? Can you?? Oh you can, can you!

Good luck!

Sim-Nev...update!

The Sims 3 is out, and what a great game it is too. Our Nev has moved into the new town of Ben Bay - how is he getting on? Well, he prefers to be on his own and loves fishing and collecting things. Exactly like his real life counterpart!

Read on.....




A spot of fishing.. He caught a brown trout and a boot today.




Nev likes to read about trains while in his very brown house.





''According to this timetable, the 4a to the town centre should have been here ten minutes ago!''



What a sight! Nev proudly shows off his fashionable fawn clothing.

Stay tuned for more nev-ventures!

Whitstable Oyster Festival 2009 - With Kevin Ketley

Well.....it's been a glorious summer day and our Kev' was in Whitstable, Kent, to bring us coverage of the start of the annual Oyster Festival. A slight diversion from the usual sports programmes he covers - but nonetheless most poot-worthy!

The carnival atmosphere was felt around the harbour town, and Kevin certainly enjoyed the carnival atmosphere of the pubs after. He confesses he has never tried an oyster and never will. He can't stand the things. They remind him of his ex-wife apparently.

The BBC have Wimbledon and Football. We have Oysters.
So enjoy the summer with Kevin Ketley.

The Primes!

It seems that our Neville has been around for a lot longer than one might first think! We managed to track down the titles for this 1957 U.S. comedy 'The Primes'.

So, Nev made it Stateside - hope they had a visitor centre.

Sadly, the show was cancelled after only 4 episodes. It was appalling.
Still, it doesn't matter - and that's all that matters!

Things That Make Nev Go Hmmmmm! #3 Visitor Centres

Continuing with our series of what makes Nev's teeth fall out with joy - we reach the humble visitor centre! Nev loves to hunt down these wherever he goes on his travels.

Nev commented '' If I go out and a place doesn't have a V.C., then I consider it a waste of my day and I vow never to return .....for a bit. They are a treasure trove of information....oooh, the smell of the maps..... pamphlets....timetables.....they're all there! They might even have tea towel and mug sets...oh my gravy''

It's safe to say that Nev loves a visitor centre.



Things That Make Nev Go Hmmmmm! #2 Trains!!!

Well, they had to be there. We're running down the list of things that make Nev drop his flask, and trains have got to get a special mention.

Nev says ''What is it about these beauties that capture my heart? Could it be the delightful play of the whistle as it goes through a tunnel and emerging in it's full glory the other side? Or is it the steam that hangs in the air and the exciting smells that penetrate the senses....or is it that I just love them! I don't know, nor care....give me a picture of a train now!''

Erm, okay Nev, here you go..... calm down a bit.

Munching-On-Sea Donkey Race Final With Kevin Ketley

Our sports commentator Kevin Ketley braved the summer sun last weekend and headed off to the coast to bring us coverage of the The Munching- On- Sea Donkey Race Durex Challenge Cup 2009.

It was a hot day, and even the donkeys looked a bit tired.....


The winner 'Abbots Ankle' came over the finishing line in a record time of 15 hours and 35 minutes.

The other donkeys, plus their riders, headed off to the nearest bar. I think we know who the true winners were that day......

Babbingtons Biscuits Chess Masters Final 2008

With Kevin Ketley......

Last year we tried to bring you footage of this prestigious event in the chess game calendar, but was outwitted by the gremlins of Blogger!
We thought we'd give it another go. Prepare to see this post vanish very quickly if it all goes wrong again!

Fingers crossed Kevin!

The Rude Puppets!

WOP proudly presents children's television favourites, Dylan The Duck and Peter The Gay Panda aka The Rude Puppets. The programme was considered to be too rude for normal TV, so we stepped in.

In order for this to be viewed on WOP, we've carefully edited the language.
This should not spoil your viewing experience however. Maybe it might even enhance it. We doubt it - but who knows.

Take it away puppets!

Warning: Although the video has been carefully edited, traces of nuts may still be found.

Apart from trains - what makes Nev happy! Well, this is the first in the list - he loves a good tea-towel set, especially from a gift shop or a visitor centre.

Let the good times continue!


Isn't it great to know that even in these tough times of recession, there is still great entertainment out there to keep the spirits up?!

With prices slashed left, right and centre, there are
great bargains to be had - as illustrated by this gem,
found in a local supermarket bargain bin!


Can you believe it?! Just £2.99!!!

(Actually, I can)

Rock on Tommy!


Poor poodle picture


Alright, come on now - just admit it...

Which one of you party Pooters dented Terry's head in the

This is art, I tell you - ART!!!

WOP: Ramsgate Revisited

So much poot-worthy material was gathered from our last visit to this famous Kent port, one half of the Poot team decided to go there again today.... and yet again - the visit proved fruitful!

It has to be said, that these are all in one street.....maybe many more treasures can be found upon further exploration.....


Okay...I may have doctored this one ever so slightly! Apt though, don't you think?



Is this a clinic? A shop that will give you burns?? Maybe it's a poorly named electrical appliance shop? Who knows.....

This surely must be the most half-arsed sign in Kent! We like it.

Ramsgate gets a great big thumbs up from The World Of Poot!




The morning after the pootage before


Well, Pooters... how are your heads feeling today, following
the weekend's Birthday celebrations?

Mine is still where it should be - which is something - but as you can imagine, some of the team did not come out the other end quite so well! Still, we all had a good time - and that really is all that matters!

If you are anything like our Kevin Ketley, your first priority upon waking this morning would have been to reach for the medicine cabinet. But what greeted you when you got there?
Bare shelves? Used cotton wool buds? Half-empty
tubes of petroleum jelly?

I thought so.

You may well have thought to yourself... "Them kids is up t' summat".
And you'd be right.

DON'T PANIC!!!

We saw this coming!

Which is why we set our boffins to work... oooh... literally 'some'
time ago, to help dig you out of the foolish mess we knew you'd land yourselves in.

And so, WOP International proudly presents...


Didn't see that coming, did ya, kid?!

Artbear 2!


Well, the birthday balloons have burst and a skin has formed on the custard.
I guess we have to go back to school tomorrow! What a splendid weekend it has been -
all the poot posts! We've had the debut of Artbear, the Wop-umentary
with Nev, Pylons...and today - the incredible additions to our ever
growing WOP International shop.

So how do we follow all that? Artbear Returns!

Yes, you can't keep a bear with anger management issues down can you?
So here he is...again!

Another Warning: Artbear has managed to control his swearing
this time but his 'drawings' may offend!

Flossie's Instructions


Honestly, I don't know what those chaps at WOP International
are playing at - they must have the Birthday bug in them or summink!

(nasty condition, that)

They now tell me that due to overwhelming demand for the 'Flossie' MW Radio in the last couple of hours or so, they have now issued - get this - the original instruction diagram, means that owners will be able to personalise their Flossie to really make her 'sing'!

Here's a sneak preview; be sure to click the pic to get a closer look at those exciting instructions!

WOP Special: When Signs Go Wrong...

Well, it goes to show - everyone can have the 'typos' according to this example spotted yesterdayyyy!


WOP Special: Nev Goes To Church!

Now, don't get me wrong but I didn't think Neville was a religious type. However, I was surprised to hear his announcement today that to celebrate the WOP birthday, he was going into a local church. I decided to follow him and the full picture quickly became apparent!

A model railway in a church???? Well, I thought I had seen it all. Now I have.

What are we to expect then? Priests and Pullman Cars? Clergymen with Class 47's? Vergers and Virgin HST'S? (Nev has a long list of these).


WOP Special: Happy Birthday WOP!!


Let the celebrations begin! World Of Poot is one years old today.......!!!
What a milestone - and indeed quite an acheivement - what with the recession and that. The WOP shop is still going strong - in fact - the orders for Fingershoes and Paper Socks have been a record high this month. So to celebrate this remarkable time, we've got some extra 'special' posts this weekend for you! To kick us off - a message from our very own Neville.......



'' Tea Towel Set!!!!! Well....one year on and what have we learned from it all? Nothing! I like to feel I am part of that. Since joining WOP I have enjoyed doing the videos and indeed, being instrumental in keeping the level of entertainment to such a high standard. That's all that matters...''

On a more serious note , we here at WOP Productions would like to thank everyone for their patience and support over the past 12 months. Without whom, this would still have been possible.

WOP Special: Nev's Pylon Spotting


''I've always been into spotting. Trains can be a bit
mainstream sometimes - even though I love
them to bits! Occasionally though, I do like
to go a little offbeat and I go for a ramble
in the countryside to find some pylons to
snap up in my collection. Look at these
turrets of power!!!!
''
