Sincerest form of flattery? Rochdale Herald & Dwayne Pipe

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I can only assume using your image in a photoshopped picture accompanying a joke news story is the same thing. This, from a website called The Rochdale Herald (that is very much not an official newspaper from Rochdale) makes the Sock on the Right, and his Macbeth outfit (as designed by Hev, and seen both of 2014's ...And So Am I show, as well as in this year's Socks Do Shakespeare) the star of the story.

Yes we are now "Will Of The Scottish People - Nicola Sturgeon's Imaginary Friend."

Here's the original photo of the Socks costume, and here's the 2014 blog post that they've swiped it from. We've asked for a credit, and whether they'll return the favour (of letting them use us) by plugging our forthcoming gigs. I've yet to hear back.

And this, spotted as part of a series of adverts at Newcastle airport last week. Dwayne Pipe, they call him. Yes, very original.
