Woody Allen – Shock Discovery
Meant to post this before, but got a bit caught up with the whole Time Out thing.
Went up to Hackney the other day to see my old pal, Wilf.
This is Wilf:
Known Wilf for years. Sadly Wilf forgets rather alot these days, and largely lives off his own shit. Back in the day though, Wilf was quite something. Bit of a celebrity in fact. Some say Wilf was the inspiration for Pigeon Street, but I’m not sure about that. He was certainly widely recognised as a one of London’s finest mime pigeons.
Anyway, there we were chatting away when Wilf only goes and drops the biggest bombshell. Knocked my fucking block off. You know the whole ‘rats with wings’ concept? It was only Woody Allen who invented it. Jesus. The Woody Allen. The dry witted comedy genius, Woody Allen. Gutted. I was a big fan of Mr Allen, till now.
Apparently he wrote it into the script for some movie he made back in 1980. One I’d never heard of called Stardust Memories.
Mr Allen – I hate to say this, but I now hold you personally responsible for the decades of persecution caused by the invention of what, as I have posted about before, is a totally unjustified racialist slur.
Mr Allen – this one’s for you:
Suck my arse.
