Jarrow Vikings


vikings, originally uploaded by Pig Sty Avenue.

Many years ago a man got drunk, bought a pound of pease pudding at Hilkerts the pork butchers, and somehow managed to scramble up the plinth far enough to be able to plaster the pease pudding on a viking's arse. He was arrested.

It might have been an protest against modernist art. At this remove, who can know?
