Letters to the editors, other people called Bristow edition.

The wonderfully named Heather Bristow writes:

I am interested to know where you go your name from??? And if you ever have a team that plays in the quiz at the Hare & Hounds in Kings Heath?? :)

Danny replies:

Hello Heather

The name is a filthy sex act, we used this for several reasons:

1. Me and co-editor Jon are fans of 80’s working class icons
2. Me and co-editor Jon are fans of filthy sex acts
3. To stop ourselves taking ourselves too seriously

as far as I know the magazine has never used the name at the H&H quiz, but Dirty Bristow is quite widely known term so could have been anyone.


P.S can we use your email (with the address taken out) as a blog post?

And apart from getting the bit about the quiz wrong (we did enter, and we came second), that was that.


Are you called ‘Bristow’, do you have a question for us?

We’ve had a busy day with hammers, paint and elastic building the stalls and attractions for Saturday’s fête. We’ve built Splat the Rat, and Dirty Eric’s Dart-o-rama:

Board, cards, darts

Four darts, winner scores the best three-card brag hand…

And we had a go at Teddy Bear Bungee:

Not the most elegant, but we’ll get there. Video features Graham Bear, who has been my only friend since I was 14.
