Long Lean Lanky Jones!

A very strange thing happened at our Assembly last Friday. Everyone was surprised when our principal Mr Burt appeared on stage wearing a shiny long beautiful red dress with a wacky fluorescent wig, and dancing.
It was a little confusing to understand their song which was called Along Came Jones. It began with Mr Palmer one of our teachers, he came out, plonked himself down on a soft armchair and glued himself to the TV. Suddenly our assembly went wild with laughter, as our Principal pranced out in his fancy dress closely followed by the evil
villain, played by Mr J. Then he tied her up and left her for dead on the railroad track" and see what happened next.

We really enjoyed it and thought it was a hilarious example of our theme this term, which is called
"The Art In Story Telling".

Wow - I am quite speechless! I had heard about this, but now I have seen the evidence on the movie I know that my instruction to look after that red dress carefully was ignored ;)

Hi Room 17,
It looks like you all had a very strange assembly. I can't believe your principal wore a long red dress and a fluorescent wig. It must have been really cool to see.

Strange to say the least! I really enjoyed it too. I agree with you in that it was a very good AND definately hilarious example of the art in story telling.

Very good writing team, I think that the way you have written this post is great. It gives readers a clear picture and explanation of this event and the movie you've attached. Keep up the good work.
