    A Singing Telegram from Burgey to Ripper868, Delivered by Mr Casson

    And I would do anything for love
    I'd run right into Cricket Chat and back
    I would do anything for love
    I'll never lie to you and that's a fact
    But I'll never forget the way you feel right now
    Oh no, no way
    I would do anything for love
    But I won't do that
    I won't do that
    Anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    But I won't do that
    I won't do that

    Some days it don't come easy
    Some days it don't come hard
    Some days it don't come at all
    and these are the days that never end
    Maybe I'm crazy
    But it's crazy and it's true
    You know you can have me
    No one else can have me but you
    As long as the planets are turning
    As long as my loin fires are burning
    As long as your dreams are coming true
    You better believe it!
    That I would to anything for love
    And I'll be there until the final act
    I would do anything for love!
    And I'll take a vow and seal a pact
    But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way
    Tonight
    I would do anything for love!
    I would do anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    But I won't do that
    I won't do that...
    I would do anything for love
    Anything you've been dreaming of
    But I just won't do that...
    Somedays I pray for yesterday (Thursday)
    Somedays I pray for tomorrow (Tuesday)
    Somedays I pray to call you Esperanza and you call me Zorro
    Some nights I lose the feeling
    Some nights I lose control
    Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls
    Maybe I'm lonely
    And that's all I'm qualified to be
    But that doesn't stop these suckers paying
    My exorbitant consultation fee
    But as long as we're both turning
    And as long as Vogue's still yearning
    There's still hope for this prayer to come true
    You better believe it!
    That I would do anything for love!
    And you know it's true and that's a fact
    I would do anything for love!
    And there'll never be no turning back (at least, not to leave)
    But I'll never do it better than I do it with you
    So long
    So long
    I would do anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    But I won't do that
    I won't do that
    I would do anything for love
    Anything you've been dreaming of
    But I won't do that...
    But I'll never stop dreaming of you
    Every night of my life
    No way
    I would do anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    I would do anything for love
    But I won't do that
    I won't do that!

    Ripper868:
    Will you raise me up?
    Will you help me down?
    Will you get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
    Will you make it all a little less cold?

    Burgey:
    I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Ripper868:
    Will you hold me sacred?
    Will you spoon me tonight?
    Can you colorise my life? I'm so sick of black and white
    Can you make it all a little less old?

    Burgey:
    I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Ripper868:
    Will you make me some magic
    With your own two hands?
    Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand?
    Can you give me something I can take home?

    Burgey:
    I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Ripper868:
    Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
    Will you hose me down with holy water if I get too hot?
    Will you take me to places I've never known?

    Burgey:
    I can do that!
    I can do that!

    Ripper868:
    After a while you'll forget everything
    It was a brief interlude
    And a CricketWeb forum fling
    And you'll see that it's time to move on

    Burgey:
    I won't do that!
    I won't do that!



    Go on, Burgey, show him the ring.

    Thread comes out on the same day Casson's in a tug-o-war with Voltman in the BOTM. One wonders how long he's been sitting on this.

    Crafty devil.

    I feel like a maiden bush galloper at Echuca stepping up to take on Whobegotyou at the Valley.

    Manipulation of the news cycle like this by Casson is worthy of a stewards's inquiry..
