Cloughesque

Light blogging due to decorating. Painting and BBC Radio Seven go together very well.

There was a good programme on about old-school comedian Frank Randle. Whatever his other faults, Randle had a laudable contempt for posh people.

There was a good story about him going to a meeting with a load of big-shots. After everyone was seated, he produced a tin full of dog-ends and passed it around. Once the tin had gone around the room untouched, he produced a gold cigarette case full of tailor-mades and offered one to the waiter.

Here's a Randle memorabilia gallery.

Also, on a different tack, apparently everyone else knows that 'Royston Vasey' is Roy 'Chubby' Brown's real name. I didn't.
