Picnic At London Bridge

This is for all those out there who think the London Bridge area, bar Borough Market, is pointless. Granted, most of it is, but not on a Thursday.

This is what goes on. Come ten o’clock, it’s one big free-for-all. Bring on the bread for the boys.

Not sure why as it appears to occur just outside the Job Center where you’d expect a look-in on free food of any kind to be one big bloodbath, but not here for some reason.

Pigeons from everywhere rock up to partake in what has become known locally as ‘The Dough-Fest’:

Good times.

It was surprisingly fine natured too, all things considered, until Johnny decided the baguette was his:

“Give me that. It’s mine.” He said, trying his best to get it in the air.

Then in comes Eddy, ever the mediator:

“Come on, Johnny. There’s plenty for everyone. Share and share alike.”

“Fuck off.”

Mart waited for the kerfuffle to move along, and quietly stepped in for some bread based me-time:

Fair play.

Hilarious though as Johnny didn’t give up.

Check him out in the background:

“Johnny, just get off the baguette will you.”


“But you’re treading shit all over it.”


Needless to say, Johnny made himself incredibly unpopular that day, and not for the first time.
