Rod, the Walsall Wood angler sculpted in rusty metal, long estranged from his copper carp Bob, has landed a rather impressive catch. Earlier this year, much to the faux-chagrin of the Express & Star, Rod caught a wonderful golden wellie.
It now seems that our rusting fisherman has been inspired by the Olympics.
Whoever did this, I want to buy you beer, and lots of it. I just hope LOCOG, also going for gold in the humourless arseholes event, don’t catch you first.
Seriously, guys, well done… and thanks to The Stymistress for the tipoff.
