Grim up North

North London, that is. The Private Eye cartoon strip by Knife and Packer charts the progress of 2 urban hipsters as they navigate their way through the lentil-strewn streets of Islington and Hoxton.

The current story sees them doing some manhole cover rubbing in the grounds of a medieval church. Berets off to them is what I say - although being the two most right on people in Britain, I'm sure they should have asked to do some 'inspection cover' rubbing.

I must admit, whenever I read this cartoon it reminds me of many of my Brighton friends!

Thanks to Hugo for prompting me to post this. It reminds me that I must look for my coal hole cover rubbings when I'm up in the loft getting the Christmas decorations out.
