I'm not sure I have the energy to get a grip on this Canoe Man story. It's probably something cooked up by the Little Sods to distract attention from the woes of their boss, Hal. What I will say, however, is that my unusually dilatory colleagues do not yet appear to have asked the big question - what hat was he wearing when he 'vanished'? Thought Experimenters will recall the controversy about the correct hat to wear in a canoe/kayak. This is the sort of detail that brings a story to life, but, so far, no news from Panama or Hartlepool. Come to that, why Hartlepool? Nothing has ever happened in Hartlepool. If you say it three times, it doesn't even sound like a real place.
