Nerf Wars Escalate in Alex

The following pictures provide evidence of a dramatic development. They capture the sad reality of Nerf War in Alex Hall. The innocent suffer. The combatants dehumanise themselves. Reports suggest skirmishes are spreading to other parts of Alex.
Dealing in Nerf arms has become a way of life on Alex 4.

Two militiamen, suspected to be leading players in the war.

A dealer shows off his wares.

Soldiers guard territory day and night.

It is too early to predict how events will unfold. All that is certain remains the common feature of all such conflict: there can be no winners until peace returns to Alex 4.

Thank you for bringing to public attention the horrors of Nerd War. In twenty years time will people be wearing a red poppy in rememberance of all the nerds who sacrificed their credibility in the cause of common humanity?

Hey I knew it was you under the rather dodgy hat... now I am experiencing Kafka'esque pain while viewing the graphic horrors of night life on Alex...!! (Liked the photos on your Bebo page by the way...great kilts!!)

Re: your friend I take the opposite view, life is too short to always read books (or blogs...) you agree with...disagreeing is much more fun!

I think you should use your photo as your new myspace pic.

The skinny arms of that 'soldier' in the last picture betray his origins in the battle-scarred waste that we know as the Newmilns-Glaston borderland ...

PS Shed, you've got to grow a beard...

Oh no! Subtle designer stubble much better look, even for the radical Nerf Warrier from the lands beyond Newmilns...

I saw that nerf gun you're holding on sale and totally wanted to get it! Have you seen the video on Nerf.com showing them using it? It has the lazer beam and everything! Instead of that gun though I opted for a flying monkey.
