he would have made a great prime minister with bungle zippy George rod jane and freddy as his cabinet- always the diplomat in the rainbow house, if only all world conflicts could be solved with a "story about being selfish"  thanks for the entertainment -loved rainbow

I think Rainbow made a serious point. If you look at the characters, they are sort of like a good range of kids you might get at school.

There's Zippy, the loud one who's a bit of a know it all. Bungle, who's friendly and well meaning but often makes mistakes. And George, the shy one who feels a bit different but is still one of the gang. They occasionally fall out and bicker etc but in the end, they all see the others POV.

Bloody good lesson for children in there I think.

League Express Australian correspondent Malcolm Andrews.

Very sad to have to report this.

I've said a few words on the General Rugby League forum and I'll say a lot more in League Express on Monday.

Today is a sad day for me. RIP Malcolm

The last time I flew into Barcelona, just as we were making our approach, Freddie & Montserrat came on my iPod with Barcelona.

I took it as a sign & had a wonderful time.

Sad news. Only talking about how good he was looking for his age yesterday. The pair of us have been layed up with the flu for the last week or so, so have been wading through the MCU back catalogue. 

RIP Stan. :(

Stan Lee - good innings. And it is heartening that he became so famous that he could actually do cameo appearances that were parodies of his own cameo appearances in TV/movies.
