Frankenstein Syndrome

Fantastic that all the Gromits did so well at the auction.  I sat there and as my one disappeared back behind the curtain after it was sold I did say a private farewell, thinking l wouldn't see Gromberry again.   Little did I suspect that within a few days he would have his own Twitter account and would be communicating with the outside world.   I was pleased if a little unnerved that my Gromit would come to life in this unexpected way.   Here is his first message:
