I've split the original Bench Update Thread into two.
The tongue-in-cheek messages are in this thread.

We want to keep the Update more or less matter-of-fact
--- it is monitored by the Hydra & Athens authorities,
and we don't want to confuse the decision makers in these
decisive moments.

You are an amazing man Jarkko, especially as you are now an Old Age Benchioner. I always feel it is my duty to play along with Geoffrey even though my personal preference would be to remain serious.

were you serious when you dragged this bench out of the loch and said:
"help me, geoff. all this needs is a wire brush and a coat of paint, and we can donate it to the people of hydra."

Very wise -and also good for those of us who are finding the joke thread quite the opposite of matter of fact - perhaps just a little surreal
