STRANGER INVADES TURKISH BATH PMILB CONFRONTS BLIMP
(The intruder, who claims to be Colonel Blimp's long-lost brother, insists on sharing the Colonel's limelight. This is going to be very embarrasing since he habitually maintains an inverted position, and his views while they are truly Blimpic, seem to have a Leftish tendency. More later.)
