} The Silly Aisles are located in England or the United Kingdom or
} Great Britain. [We're off to a bad start]. There are five or six
} islands, depending on whether you count Gugh separately from St.
} Agnes. [Things are not getting better.] The largest city is Hugh
} Town where 1,097 lived in 2011, up from 1,068 in 2001. No word on
} where the additional 29 people came from, births, immigrants from
} London, or just washed up on shore. [This town is not Huge in my
} book, the Oracle Book of Huge towns, available from the B family
} of bookstores, B. Dalton, Barnes and Noble, and Borders, except
} B. Dalton and Borders, which have gone out of business.]
} I congratulate you on the depth of your question (something the
} Oracle almost never does) because there is actually a Roman temple
} in Hugh Town. Hasn't been excavated, so nobody knows what's under
} it, except maybe the people who built it.
} The big event in Hugh is the World Championship Pilot Gig Race, held
} on the May Day Bank holiday. [They close the banks for Gig Races?
} Apparently they do. That's money banks, not river banks.] Unlike
} thousands of megabytes, a gig is an oar powered boat used in the 17th
} century to take pilots to incoming Atlantic vessels. The pilot who
} got there first got the job, hence the races. The gig was also one
} of the first shore-based lifeboats. Alfred Hitchcock is known for
} inserting himself as a cameo in his movies, but it took some
} ingenuity to get him into his movie Lifeboat, which, as you may
} have already surmised, took place on a lifeboat. Not a gig lifeboat,
} mind you. [We're going downhill fast. Things are getting worse and
} worse.] He appeared in a newspaper held by one of the survivors
} (on the lifeboat) as the "before" and "after" pictures in an advert
} for the the Sensational New Reduco Obesity Slayer. What Americans
} abbreviate as ad, British abbreviate as advert. That brings us back
} to the beginning, as the Silly Aisles are British.
} By the way, the female form of Michigander is not Michigoose as many
} belileve, but Michigaze. Go Blue^H^H^H^H Green!
} You owe the Oracle a video of yourself reading this answer in a loop
} over and over until you drop from exhaustion or starvation. [Neither
} is a good way to lose weight, but you already knew that.]
