Brian Micklethwaite - 'Silver Nightmare'

Looking into Madame Rosalie's crystal ball to come up with a theme for tonight's speech.
Brian found all sorts of strange things in the silvery depths - from the Moon to Etiquette via Silver Surfers …

He was whirled around in a nightmarish maelstrom of silvery images, each time tantalisingly landing on a possible speech subject. Should he talk about the Moon and how primitive humankind (and lovers) regarded it? Should he talk about himself as a 'silver surfer' what what they get up to on the internet? Should he talk about 'silver service' and the strictures of etiquette?

In the end the images came along more slowly and finally ceased, leaving him none the wiser and having to appeal to the audience to help him.
