Gay and Grumpy
•Once the number of candidates for the Aras was confirmed to be "seven" comparisons with other august groupings of that number were inevitable. One thinks of Yul Brynner and 'The Magnificent Seven', and then of course there was 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'.
What is surprising, however, is the intensity of the competition to be Grumpy. So far Gay Mitchell is winner by a short head.
