Letter: Mad scientist

Sir: More fun from Richard Dawkins! You could play his game with anything - let's say symphony concerts. A lot of people sit in a semi- circle, for some reason in evening dress. They start hitting things and blowing down metal tubes. Some have wooden female bodies between their knees and stroke them with rods. A man at the front nearly goes berserk waving a stick and none of them looks at him. Noises arise unlike any heard elsewhere in the human or animal kingdom. At the end, the spectators make a sound with their hands and everyone goes home.

Other subjects: climbing Mount Everest; biochemistry labs.

If you stop publishing Dawkins, I'll cancel The Independent. He's better than Tommy Cooper.
