You may remember a couple of weeks ago that we were having a
spot of bother with some
psychedelic daleks (let's face it, we've all been there.) Well,
we promised that we'd keep you posted on how things turned out, so
here's the update.
We left IT Sam in our phone box, fighting for his life (ish).
This is what IT Sam fighting for his life (ish) looked like:
Lots of you posted comments on our knitter
natter blog suggesting how we could combat these tiny terrors.
Some were so clever we couldn't understand them. Others were genius
in their simplicity.
No sooner had the ideas come in, we gathered the materials you
guys said we'd need (took us ages to find a sonic screwdriver) and
headed to the phone box to Save Our Sam.
However, by the time we got there, both Sam and the daleks had
disappeared. Where once advanced a marauding mass of psychadelic
daleks, now lay a piece of paper.
It was a note from the daleks.
As this photo clearly shows, the daleks have escaped (in
fairness the queue for the sonic screwdriver in Argos was rather
large). And no sign of our Sam either.
However, we're pretty sure they've snuck into the last batch of
hats that were sent out to Sainsbury's stores this week - meaning
they're out there, somewhere, now.
So, your quest is simple. Track down the bottles that have these
dalek hats on them, take a picture to prove that you've found one,
and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org
to win yourself a case of smoothies. There are fourteen dalek hats
in total, waiting to be found.
If you do find one in your local Sainsbury's, please approach it
with caution. They may look cute, but they're a force to be
And if you find IT Sam on your travels, perhaps sat a-top a
smoothie bottle pretending to be a hat, please tell him to stop
messing about and get back to Fruit Towers, my laptop's bust.
May the dalek hunt begin.
