the grip of Spiros

hey everyone


well, my good chum Spiros is certainly no stranger to appearing in periodicals produced by the press, but it's rare, i suppose, that the articles do not feature words like "the accused", "charged" or even the phrase "a bit like what George Michael did, only with a fireman". he does appear in the press this very week for nothing like those usual misunderstandings, but rather for one of the hobbies which he pursues that tends not to offend the constabulary.

Spiros has very kindly forwarded what seems to be a photograph of the article rather than just a scan of it. presumably there is some sort of copyright issue that he had in mind when he did this.





i must say that this is one of the most excellent bits of headline copy i have ever seen! the writer clearly had the measure of Spiros when they thought it up!

Spiros, by the way, would like it to be known that his "glory" is often more than what can be held in one fist. i would have no idea if this is true or not; but i shall certainly be asking a fireman or similar if i ever see them.

nice one Spiros!


be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
