The Mice ate my Mouse Mat

Apparently the ending to (shock, horror) Agatha Christie's 'The Mousetrap' has been revealed. I'd do the relavent link if I could be arsed, but I'm just too overjoyed that the wonderful old St Martins Theatre may at long last fill its boots.

I hope this means St. Martin's gets to present a great new show worthy of the West End - a troupe of Australian men in utility kilts and hobnailed boots banging dustbin lids perhaps, or a penis puppet theater version of The Rape of The Sabine Women.

Penis puppet theater with the Vagina Monologues and Ken Dodd and his Diddymen doing Agamemnon by Aeschylus in Sanskrit(in a contemporary Knotty Ash context).

One can but hope.

But this is Wikipedia we’re talking. How do we know they’ve got it right? If people really want to keep the ending secret, they should be constantly amending the Wiki entry, saying that it’s the butler, the driver, the doctor, the whore, the three-eyed swamp beast that did it.

(That said, I’ve never seen or read the play, but I’ve known who the killer was for years, so it’s hardly a state secret, is it?)

Does the mouse get it? I daren't read the popular press now, for fear of discovery.
