I decided to send my tiny teddy bear on a world trip (via post to other people) and get photos of him in as many different & interesting places (maybe doing daft things) as possible. All photos e mailed back will be posTed on his personal web site. It's a stupid idea... but hey, someones gotta' have 'em.

I thought it might be good if we got a few PistonTeds to start the ball rolling... then we can unleash him on an unsuspecting world.

Anyone want to join this stupid game? The further away from here the better - I am trying to send him as many miles as possible before he gets decapitaTed - or worse.

If you want to join in, post your name and location on this thread and we'll start the ball rolling. I guess in here we cover Spain, Ireland, New Zealand, Holland, USA, Hong Kong etc. oh and England - and of course going back and forwards to England will clock up the acumulaTed miles.

If any are interesTed, I'll get an address from you and snail mail Ted.... and you can send it to another from this forum... and when we are all bored to hell with the idea, we can send him into the unknown and see what happens. yikes Poor Ted.

P.S. (I was going to call him PetrolTed, but thought I'd get sued)

Great idea!

If you want a photo of Ted basking on the beach or riding a donkey then send him my way to Weston-super-Mare.

"We are trying to get TransporTed to as many destinations before he is either exhausTed or debilitaTed. If he gets at all famous due to his globetrotting, we will auction him on eBay and give the money to Medecins Sans Frontieres."

How are you going to get him back ?

Your desire to raise money could be saTed by selling relaTed merchandise, perhaps ?

Cracking Idea.

He can visit the Suffolk countryside here, there's a few nice spots, and a brewery or two locally, so he could end up inebria-Ted, if he's not careful...

Send him to Bob, then Bob can send him to me and I'll get a nice shot of TranspoTed in the Dyno cell in whatever nice machinery is in that day

Fab idea!! You should get people to 'sponsor' Ted for the time that they have him - all donations to your chosen charity.

Ted can visit Chingford and go horse riding in Epping Forest with me!

I might be able to get a photo of Slade's drummer spanking him with a drum stick. Lets agree where the teddy goes amongst us lot, before sending him overseas. Ive got friends on most continents (most of whom are crazier than I am ) so could probably arrange for any kind of shot, anywhere

Poah, any chance you could sneak him into your next model shoot?

Sounds like a lark .

Edit because I'm not sure if that statement was positive enough! Is there a sign up thingy?

How about a log book to go with him so that everyone who has him can sign it. Or maybe just a long roll of paper ? He can then be certificaTed as he goes around ! (don't blame me, you starTed the whole thing !!)
