The Bricklayer's Lament

The late Gerard Hoffnung addressed the Oxford Union 54 years ago and this gem was part of his address.  I defy anyone to listen to it without laughing.


You want a picture as well?  OK.  I did threaten to post a picture I took the other day when on the Roman Camp and here it is.  We are looking south-east across the golf course and over the Bevendean valley to the Race Hill.  At the right of the picture you can see the race course grandstand and the eagle-eyed might spot a couple of large container ships heading down Channel on the horizon.  And those two specs in the sky are gulls.
