Generous move from Livi’s new Pal-adin!

26 Aug

Livi fans were given a massive boost yesterday by the generosity of a much-loved TV personality of the 70s and 80s.

Much has been discussed amongst the Lions faithful as to how the club could improve attendances and increase Season Ticket sales in an effort to attract the support of so many disinterested locals.  Fans have often been at each other’s throats, as suggestions and counter suggestion became heated, but it looks like these dark days could be numbered.


Glen Michael, star of STV’s mega-popular kids show “Cartoon Cavalcade”, had watched the plight from afar and was finally convinced by his faithful sidekick – a rusty paraffin lamp called Paladin – to do something about it.

“With all the millions I made from TV, I was never happy” he told us yesterday.  “I was loved by children, adored by the public, but my only real friends were Paladin and Rusty, my long-dead dog.

Crap cartoons


A think tank, last night.

“So one day I was watching another of those crap ‘Arabian Nights‘ cartoons we had on the show, when Paladin told me the arguing at Valealmond had to stop. And he was right.

“One quick call to my financial adviser later, and I had bought Livingston FC a nearly-new think tank off Ebay!”

And indeed, the move has already been well received by the fans.


“This is a very generous move by Mr Michael” said Trust representative Dara Stoker (14).  “I can see our new think tank being a very popular addition to the stadium, and look forward to seeing all the new baby thinks swimming around inside it very soon.”

And there may be more good news for Livingston on the horizon, as the Sunday Tabloid has learned former “Thingummyjig” host, Jack The Laird o’ Cowcaddens McLaughlin, has all but secured a brand new School of Thought, which sources close to the star say he intends to donate to the club’s Youth Programme.

More on this story when we get it.
