                                  Ice Climber


Ice is cold. This much we know.   But   did  you  realise how much pleasure can
be gained by chipping away blocks of  it and consequently ascending a whole ice
clad mountain? No, neither did I until I entered the realm of the Ice Climber.

The Ice Climber is a  lovable  Eskimo   chap.   Like  most  eskimos he lives in
an igloo, has a diet consisting solely of fish, has 25 different words for snow
and enjoys nothing better than clubbing baby seals over the head.

-- THE NOT MADE UP AT ALL STORYLINE -------------------------------------------

Bjoern the eskimo is  the  bastard   lovechild   of  Bjork  and Mountaineer Sir
Edmund Hilary. Bjoern  loves  nothing   better   than   climbing  rocks  whilst
listening to undergound techno sounds. His other  pleasure  is  battering small
cute animals. Techno and animal  culling   may  not  appear  happy  bedfellows,
but  as Bjoern explains: "I enjoy clubbing".

Before  tackling  his   chosen   conquest,   Bjoern   likes   to   give  it  an
ariel examination. He is helped  in  this  test  by   Stan the Stalk who kindly
gives him a lift  to  various  icy  summits.   Stan   is  ambivilous  to Bjoern
wildlife assaults. "Its the only language  they understand!" he bellows. "I had
that David Mellor in my undercarriage the other day. Bloody nice bloke".

The job of air-taxi was forced on  Stan  after  he was sacked from his previous
job of promoting margarine.  After  an  unsuccesful   stint   in  sex education
videos, he entered the lucrative private  transport market. "My  business is on
the way up!" he jokes showing the lack  of humour that Stalks are rightly proud

Bjoern describes the moment  that  he   reaches   the   top  of  a  mountain as
his greatest high. "Imagine the best orgasm  you   have  had and multiply by 3.
That's nothing like climbing a mountain, but  it's  still  fun to imagine." The
insight into the psychology of  a  mountaineer  continues.  "You could say that
climbing an ice mountain is  the  summit  of  career.  It   is   the peak of my
achievement. I feel on top of the world." The puns  continue for several hours,
but unfortunately do not get any better.

But are there any potential hazards for the would-be mountaineer?
"Icicles do my head in." whinges Bjoern. "Literally."
He continues. "Birds  and  seals.  Bloody   menace.  Haven't  they got anything
better to do with their pitiful lives than mess around on mountains?"

But what is Bjoern's favourite aspect of mountaineering?

"I like to find a good hole and jump in!"

What's so good about getting to the top?

"There's all sorts of great stuff  up  there.  Like  vegetables. I also like to
jump on clouds - I really feel like  I'm   walking   on  air. When I get to the
summit I wait for Stan to fly past then leap aboard."

You may think that mountaineering  is  a  lonely  pursuit, but Bjoern is oftern
joined in  his  expiditions  by  his  good  friend  Bjoarn.  The  friends  look
remarkably similar - nothing to do  with  the  fact  that they are actually the
same sprite with different  colours,  but  more  that  they  share the standard
physiognomy of the Eskimo.

"When Bjoarn and I go for a mountain  then  its just a mad scramble to the top!
We don't help each other out - we're  not  pansies you know. Obviously I am the
far better climber and Bjoarn can't even climb  on top of his Igloo without his
Mum giving him a leg up. But I like to humour him." laughs Bjoern.
