A helpful Google Alert suggested to us this morning that the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre had just been namechecked in David Mitchell's Soapbox. In fact we'd been referenced by someone who'd posted a comment after his video, pointing out that the Socks coined the term "Credit Crunch" to apply to the very phenomenon David is discussing. And what do you know, it's a Socks video that predates this blog where we stick all the Socks videos in a blog. So, let's have a look, first at David Mitchell being witty & erudite on the subject, then the Socks being sticky and araldite.
PS: Excellent piece about moral decay of society by Peter Oborne in the Telegraph.
