Chinks of light

Matt cartoon, October 22

Meawhile, Wor Andy is doing his usual scintillating job, showing the flag on the international stage.

Prince Andrew and Lady Mayoress Gilly Yarrow appear less than enthused as they listen to a translated version of Mr Xi's speech tonight

    Blinking Lights then Chinks of Light. There should be a flash photography warning I tell you!

    By the way, talking of Yuman Rites, what’s the connection between Aristophanes and a 40-year anniversary in Iceland?

    Did Aristophanes not pay his debts either then?

    He wrote satirical plays.

    That I, one Snout by name, present a wall.
    And such a wall, as I would have you think,
    That had in it a crannied hole, or chink,
    Through which the lovers, Pyramus and Thisbe,
    Did whisper often very secretly.

    Writing satirical plays would not have prevented him reneging on his debts as Iceland did.

    Anyway, Iceland reneged on their debts much more recently than forty years ago. I’m trying to remember if Aristophanes ever wrote a play called ‘Cods’.

    My comment, was of course, the earliest known reference to Chinese whispers, of which the photograph reminded me.

    OK, here’s the scoop:

    Aristophanes’ play, Lysistrata, described how women went on strike to get a say in public affairs. In 1975. Iceland’s women did the same. 😎
