Andy Capp Statue to Be Unveiled


Drunken, lazy, wife-beating philanderers all over the world will no doubt be taking a tea kettle-heated bath in the living rooms of their flats today in celebration of news that the bronze statue honoring Andy Capp is set to be installed in the town of Hartlepool in the near future. Appropriately, it will be placed outside of a bar. For those of you keeping track at home, this gives the late Reg Smythe's popular creation the best memorial and the best licensed product.

I could write about this story all day, but the vicar's at the door.
