I found these likely lads lurking in a forgotten corner of my childhood home. I think I was about 10 when I made them which goes to show there were some benefits from growing up in the land of just 2 tv channels and no internet. I can’t remember but I do wonder why I didn’t give No.7 his 7 and in fact, why do they have numbers at all? What a strange child I was.
As for yer man on the end – well – for the life of me I cannot recall the thinking behind him. He does have a certain je ne sais qois for a purple headed freak but also, to my shame – a touch of the golliwog about him (Oh, put the pitchfork down. It was 30 years ago.) Which goes to show, I think, that there were certain disadvantages to growing up in the land of 2 tv channels and no internet.
