It's All Done In The Best Possible Taste!

Yes, folks, it's the photo they tried to censor! Ramsgate's legendary biblio-bloke Michael Child doing his impersonation of the late, great, lovely Kenny Everett's Cupid Stunt (or Mary Hinge as she was going to be called before the spoil-sport BBC suits intervened).

Michael was featured in last Friday's Isle of Thanet Gazunder, but for some strange reason they cropped the shot so that only his head appeared. Fortunately, being the good sport he is, he sent me the uncut version for the blog. So get down there to his excellent bookshop on trendy King Street (opposite the Pains of Waterpoo) and buy those tomes!

Do you have an embarrassing photograph of yourself? If so, why not email it to me at richardeastcliff@yahoo.co.uk so we can all have a laugh?

Oh, you mean the 'Syd Barrett' photo, Michael. Maybe I'll put that on as tomorrow's 'Snap of the Day'!

I don't have any embarassing photos of myself, but The Thanet Times has a few! ; )

Didn't NOTW publish some embarrasing film of Max Mosley and call girls dressed as Nazis? I'm sure you can see ECR's shadow in the background. http://media.canada.com/ee565338-7596-403b-b017-5d7416df0187/0331mosely.jpg

I say! Michael looks quite tasty in that picture.

And they say the camera never lies!
