You may remember seeing this picture before.
It was snapped at the Oval during the recent World Cup Twenty20 match between England and the West Indies. I wrote about it here and promised a further happy pic.
In the interests of the pro-choice movement, I endured the penury of a sunny day at the Surrey/Middlesex match on Saturday, complete with copious lashings of Scrumpy Jack, to fulfill my promise to you.
Just in case cricket-lovers aren't able to look up and see the many 'smoking permitted' green ticks screwed to the wall at just over head high, there is a further embracing welcome to their customers available by looking down.
I do hope that you will understand the immense torture I have suffered in gaining this proof that Surrey Cricket Club are all-round good eggs. A further day watching engrossing cricket featuring top-quality talent like England international Owais Shah is a tough ask.
Especially with exceptionally attractive and well-adjusted ladies, adorned in very flimsy attire, being highly in abundance. It was hell, I tell ya.
It was equally horrific that I was forced to travel to the O2 Arena last Saturday to selflessly observe the War of the Worlds 30th Anniversary Live Tour, just to report back to you that a promoter was selling discounted cigarettes to the attendees. A mere £5 for Benson & Hedges, for example, and they were giving away portable ashtrays too.
You see, business actually likes smokers, and why wouldn't they when they make up 22% or more of their income. Much to the chagrin of the pulchritudinally-challenged and truth-restricted souls at ASH, I would imagine.
One can almost hear the angst of Dockrell et al as they feverishly dream up hate campaigns against highly-respected and hugely-funded venues such as these. After all, choice must be stifled at all costs by those taking the Labour government's shilling.
So, can I relax for a bit now? Because I've had one hell of a time. I hope you understand.
