News arrives of the world's oldest living creature (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7066389.stm). He is a mollusc who was around in the time of Elizabeth I and he rejoices in the name of Ming. If this story had surfaced at the Lib Dem conference a few weeks ago, I suspect the sketch writers would have had a field day.
Didn't the ancient marine oddity have a play written about him during his early childhood?
It was called Clamlet.
Ok, I'll get my coat.
