  • Criminals flushed with success?

    It's the sort of crime caper an Ealing Comedy film might have been made of (or perhaps Carry On Up the Khazzie). The theft of a solid gold toilet from Blenheim Palace. Stolen to order maybe? - Keep an eye on deliveries to Trump Tower! If Sir Bernard and Lady Docker were still with us they'd be in the frame.

    If there's some bastard with a solid gold bog...
    they deserve robbing!!!


    The long toll of the brave
    Is not lost in darkness
    Over the fruitful earth
    And athwart the seas
    Hath passed the light of noble deeds
    Unquenchable forever.

      Obviously didn't read the enclosed item. It was part of an art exhibition - a piece of conceptual art - but then at bottom conceptual art is essentially crap

        Norah, Lady Docker has a sudden flashback to her girlhood Gorbals dance hall hostess days, when she would have been stroking this sailor's arm while the dance hall dip on duty lifted his wallet....

          iN RETROSPECT, THE BOTTOM pix is probably staged. I can't picture why a group of sailors would be interested in watching a naked woman dancing with a man in a gorilla suit....

            Seriously racist photo though, isn't it? A woman dressed as some sort of "native" dancing with a gorilla.

              I'm having second thoughts on whether he's a gorilla, or the Ship's Bosun dancing naked....
              IIRC correctly, Bosuns never take their caps off...
              Mystery to me...

                  Different dance moves...

                  Maybe it IS a bosun sans uniform. I can't picture a pack of Royal Navy matelots letting a gorilla get between them and a naked woman....
