A TATTOOIST, TWO SNARLING DOGS AND A MONKEY WITH A SAUCEPAN
Steve, what do you want to tell us?
Morning Danny, right you asked about strange things on other
Why were you in someone's house for a start Steve?
Well it were a tattooists and I went for a tattoo on..
You went for a tattoo - Hey hey! How many tattoos have you
Wow he's a tattooed man!.......So what tattoo were you going
for at the time?
At the time I went, it was a rose with an Ace of Spades.
Okay I've got that
We're going to a tattooist's house
now Aliss! - Go on, what's a tattooist's house like?........One
second Steve, after we come back from New York Ollie, organise
a show from a tattoo parlour - this is a great idea, go on.
So I'm sat in his house and there's a fish tank in the corner
So I goes to look in it and there's nought in it
I says "What's in here then"? And he says, "Well
there's a Python" and I says "Well there's nought
in here" and he says, "He's knocking about somewhere!"
Aliss - What man keeps a snake in a fish tank?
Oh that's were you keep them Aliss, that's common practise.
It's like giving a hamster a wheel. Brear Python gets very
depressed and walks around with his hands in his pockets,
kicking stones and his bottom lip sticking out, if you don't
give him an aquarium.
So I start getting worried like and I'm sat there and there's
a lot of commotion coming from the kitchen.
So I says, "What's going off?" and he told me to
go and have a look. It were kind of saloon doors if you know
what I mean?
So I looked over top and there's a monkey up curtains with
a saucepan in his hand
With a Bull Terrier sat at bottom
"It's a tattooist's house - Hey, hey!" So there
you are Steve, you look behind the curtain, there was a monkey
with a saucepan
And two snarling Staffordshire Bull Terriers..
Laughing - "Inevitably! - I take that as read
And just imagine it, all over flooring is lumps of leather
and studs from what Bob told me after, the dogs used to eat
each others collars and spit studs out, they were that mad!
One pulling curtain with monkey on top, the other running
round in circles and as they calm down, the monkey climbs
down the curtain and whacks dog on head with saucepan..
And then back up and it starts again
Are you sure you're not reliving a previous life as one of
Fred Carno's troop? So the monkey would wait at the top of
the curtain for the dogs to really hit a peak of madness,
would rush down
See even you're laughing and you were there
would hit the dogs with a saucepan?
That kind of thing would never ever fault for dramatic interest,
I could watch that all day
Andy Darling - See the wild card in all this is the Python
that was knocking around somewhere. Did it join in?
Well I went back three weeks later and it were back in fish
So I don't know where it had been, but it were back in Fish
If our people off air take down a vague address of Bob's
Tattoo Parlour, do you think it's still there?
No! I don't think it's there any more.
We couldn't find out could we?
It were up near Alinshire Hospital in Sheffield..
Aaah! The hospital for people who have delusions and illusions,
as somebody might walk out of casualty and into a would be
..Would that be the same?
