A tale I heard

Comedian Ed Gamble on the worst gig he's ever had:

"Jamie Oliver's Big Feastival. It was at 11.40 am on the huge main stage in front of seven people who were sat a mile away. I had to call them forward one by one and banter with them. Soul destroying. Still, I had a lively scotch egg afterwards."

A tale I saw

written beneath him. God, he looks
happy. The olives in the picture
to the stage left of him
are his darkened eyes; 
the cheese is the voice of
the photographer. God, he looks
