In tribute to Punch Day, I walked the streets with a grotesque, hook-nosed, humpbacked idiot on my hand, who whacked people in the chops with his loosely held string of sausages.
Having subjected numerous unwitting individuals to this unnecessary and totally unwelcome display of slapstick violence, it came to my attention that Punch Day actually celebrates the alcoholic drink. Soooooooo… cheers!
