twitpanto Act Two, Scene One - Nottingham Castle #twitpanto 16:01:58
twitpanto Meanwhile back in Nottingham Castle, The Sheriff is holding a thought shower. #twitpanto 16:02:11
TomAttwood Sheriff: I'm today's "supply sheriff". I'm just as bad, just less beardy #twitpanto 16:02:40
TomAttwood Sheriff: That can’t be true, what about broadswords? #twitpanto 16:04:18
ewan Guy of Glasgow; if we cut either of those, I predict a riot #twitpanto <warns Alan-a-dale to NOT sing> 16:04:21
citizensheep John: What about if we come at this from another angle, a lot of the people we’ve cut off have relocated to the forest. #twitpanto 16:05:10
citizensheep John: This has had the result of upskilling them in terms of stag hunting and archery. As well as leaf-bottom-wiping. #twitpanto 16:05:31
TomAttwood Sheriff: No, I’ve heard that Robin of Loxeley is back too, he’s not been on the Notts Archers page for ages. #twitpanto 16:06:22
ewan Guy of Glasgow: Hose-wearing playboy, if I read another puff piece for his crowdsourced hood threadless rip-off on Techcrunch… #twitpanto 16:06:46
ewan Guy of Glasgow: I’ll shove his bow so far down his throat he’ll have to pull his string to pull his string ifyou know what I mean #twitpanto 16:07:27
cybrum Edward: We need to disarm them — we could send warning scrolls out to anyone caught poaching. #twitpanto 16:07:52
citizensheep John: And then remove the bows if the bow is used to kill three stags. No matter who uses them. #twitpanto 16:08:15
ewan Guy of Glasgow: It’s unfair, it’s unethical. It's going to upset @Iaindale... I love it. #twitpanto 16:08:50
TomAttwood Sheriff: Let’s start the consultation exercise — I’ll blog it, let’s get the web team to set up a Wordpress site. #twitpanto 16:09:10
twitpanto Scene Two - Nottingham Castle #twitpanto 16:09:22
cybrum Edward: And give their connection a good throttling #twitpanto 16:09:24
twitpanto Unbeknownst to the Sheriff, Lady Marian and her companion Trafigura, a homely wench, were monitoring their hashtag. #twitpanto 16:09:33
editorialgirl Marian: @bounder Trafigura, did you hear that — a #3stags rule... we must tell the open rights group. #twitpanto 16:09:47
bounder Trafigura: @editorialgirl Never mind that, Robin’s back in town, I do love a man with a bit of strong arm and a thing for silk #twitpanto 16:10:04
editorialgirl Marian: Oh, Robin? I’ve unfollowed him. Not one tweet from the crusades — he obviously doesn’t care. #twitpanto 16:10:30
bounder Trafigura: I wouldn’t be so hasty, there’s not a lot of men round here with much drive. His shaft sends me all a quiver. #twitpanto 16:10:52
editorialgirl Marian: Trafigura - you’re to go to the forest in disguise and tell them what we know. #twitpanto 16:11:34
twitpanto Scene Three - The Forest #twitpanto 16:11:55
twitpanto And so Trafigura, dressed as a nobleman, rode into Sherwood Forrest. Presumably she thought she was going to Center Parcs. #twitpanto 16:12:07
tom_watson *ahem* fashionably late. #twitpanto 16:12:48
jonhickman Little John: Halt — there’s a toll to play to pass safely through our forest. #twitpanto 16:14:11
getgood What's Jim Royale doing on stage? #twitpanto 16:14:20
benjiw Much: Let’s call it a little wealth redistribution. #twitpanto 16:14:22
jonhickman Little John: it's a green tax to pay for those water butts I've ordered #twitpanto 16:15:06
jonhickman Little John: @benjiw Much, where do you get all this “wealth redistribution”, “workers' control of production” stuff? #twitpanto 16:15:14
benjiw Much: It’s just good socialism, I’m campaigning for that geezer Stuart in the next election. #twitpanto 16:15:34
bounder Trafigura: @jonhickman John, it’s me Trafigura #twitpanto 16:16:08
jonhickman Little John: @bounder I wouldn’t have recognised you out of uniform. #twitpanto 16:16:47
bounder @bounder Trafigura: Yesss, enough about that — I have a message from Lady Marian for Robin #twitpanto 16:16:54
jonhickman Little John: We must blindfold you, our camp location is a secret. #twitpanto 16:17:20
bounder @bounder Trafigura: That’s what you said last time, Little John. #twitpanto 16:17:29
benjiw Much: @jonhickman Er, John, you do realise that Tuck’s added the location to Foursquare. #twitpanto 16:17:42
twitpanto Scene Four - Robin’s Camp #twitpanto 16:18:03
