Unnerving driver's announcement

How to put the willies up several hundred people in twenty seconds

I still get pleasantly surprised about how much traffic I get from my main site,
Going Underground being an FHM recommended site (if you're from outside the UK or don't look at magazines with well endowed ladies on them, it's a best selling lads' mag - and a monthly not like those ridiculous new weeklies Zoo, Nuts, Balls and Bollocks or whatever), particularly as some of the blokes from FHM come up with the best overheard tube drivers' announcements.

Here's one from an FHM.com visitor who signed my guestbook over the weekend:

"Apparently one year at Christmas a tube driver decided to have some fun, stopped the train in the middle of a tunnel, and said in a deep voice, "This is your driver speaking...(pause)...or is it?" What a man! "

What a psycho!

Update - just in case you don't read the comments (shame on you)

Looks like this driver (Redd Pepper), or someone like him has now got a job as a voiceover artist. LordofMisrule gives us the full story.
