Tangentially, The Beatles must have been smoking some serious shit when they came up with this:

I am he as you are he as you are me
And we are all together
See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly
I'm crying

Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come
Corporation teeshirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you been a naughty boy. You let your face grow long
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob

Mister City Policeman sitting, pretty little policemen in a row
See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run
I'm crying, I'm crying
I'm crying, I'm crying

Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye
Crabalocker fishwife pornographic priestess
Boy you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come
You get a tan from standing in the English rain
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob goo goo goo goo joob

Expert textpert choking smokers
Don't you think the joker laughs at you? (Ha ha ha! He he he! Ha ha ha!)
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied
I'm crying

Semolina pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Alan Poe
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob goo goo goo joob
Goo goo goo joob goo goo goo joob
Goo gooooooooooo jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
Jooba jooba

Nice spot. I lived in the next road down for a short while - Egremont Place...a.k.a Vaseline Alley. Edge of Kemp Town you see.

Sigh. I doubt many people here have seen it and I really don't know why you try and be snotty about everything as it's really rather dull

and I was kept in companionship with a walrus whom I named Gregory. Never have I had such a fulfilling friendship with anyone, human or otherwise
This is a position I am prepared to offer for free (eg: no rent payable) on the fulfillment of some conditions. I have, over the last few months, been constructing a realistic walrus costume
To take on the position as my lodger you must be prepared to wear the walrus suit for approximately two hours each day

The ad is for a lodger in Brighton - surprising then that there is no mention of the need to be gay.......

Oh, now I get what he meant by 'catching crabs', though for the life of me I can't work out what personal problem is being referred to by 'catching fish!'

Trust me (I'm also from East Sussex, but not Brighton) - yes. In some areas it's merely 'encouraged' but mostly it's compulsory.

A few years ago, I heard about a pub where straight people used to gather, but it soon went out of business........

They even elected a Green MP for God's sake - a sure sign of ubiquitous gayness...........
