Editors note Poison



Congratulations, Your Majesty, on your Diamond Jubilee. Long Live the Queen.


Hello and welcome to Bootleggers Buzz issue #16, for the partially sighted and the slow-minded I can tell you it's a special edition to celebrate the Queen of the United Kingdom's Diamond Jubilee, having been Queen for 60 years. There are 1,000 boat floatillas going down the Thames, concerts outside Buckingham Palace, and street parties all around the country but I know that this will be the pinnacle of the celebrations.

We have a number of articles relating the the Jubilee; the whole Buzz team assigned a few players of Bootleggers their Royal equivalents; we also had a think about what Bootleggers would be like if it made it to it's own Diamond celebrations;
Afty then asked a few players who they would choose to be their monarch if they had the choice; and to balance up this overwhelmingly positive reflection of the Queen, ShyGuy asks whether a Royal Family are really neccecary. Finally, we have another contest! We're getting bloody generous recently! All you have to do is answer a few simple questions, solve a simple maths problem and submit it to the simple contest site! Remember that when you sign up to the contest site you need to use your current Bootleggers username in order to be verified!

Enough Jubilee celebration. We also bring you the standard news of the week, including the wipe of The Enterprise and the suspiciously timed return of Event Horizon, the wipe of Carpe Diem and some of our regular weeklies including Afty's TV Rip-Offs and A Few Harmless Questions from powerbear.

I hope you enjoy the read and I'm proud to say that by both UK time (with minutes to spare), and definitely by Bootleggers time- this is still a morning edition.
