Detailed Versions

John "Trollkin" Gathercole :



There has come to our attention (from various sources) a rumour stating that one of our classic products, Womble the CleansingTM, does not - in fact - exist.

The rumour states that the game (described in the magazine 'Pyracane' as - and I quote - "...the finest example of existential ennui  in the games industry today") is no more than a figment of the imagination of one John Gathercole; a 'gentleman' of unknown address.

I can state categorically that Womble The CleansingTM is very much alive and just about to go into its tenth edition (we'll beat that Cthullu game yet). However there will be a slight delay until such time as we can remember where we put the revised chapters 3 to 17, appendix 'F' and the index.

It is possible that they are under the cat litter tray. But Iím sure you don't really wish to know that.

The Creator of Womble The CleansingTM, Gary Rein~Garfield, is upset and distraught knowing that someone is so blatantly taking the credit for all his hard work. He has locked himself into the bathroom with only his teddy bear for company, and is refusing to come out. We tend to worry about Gary quite a lot.

Clearly this 'John Gathercole' has a lot to answer for.

Assuming this person exists, and with such a silly name I very much doubt it, our lawyers (the Vercotti Brothers) wish to have a chat to explain to him the finer aspects of copyright infringement law.  With a baseball bat.

If anybody claims to have seen this man would they please contact our office with the details of where to find him.

I hope that this clarifies our position.

Terry Rollkin
