    magisterial! The "Marquee de Sad" and the last bit about the keyboard had me chortling long and hard. I really do think the collected "Hootsmons" series needs a much broader distribution -- a velvet smooth satire wrapped in a big clunking comedic fist.

    with your permission, Marquee de Sad is too good, I am going to use on Scotsman

    PS - i take credit for "erection" aspect of New Labour tax payer expense sleaze : Jim Devine - shelves, Ian Grey - tent, Jacqui Smith....

    So will continue to use, lol

    All hats off though, the Hootsman is outstanding
