If Cooktown were Darkest Africa – and some of it sort of is – then it’s the part of Darkest Africa where Livingston stumbles upon a lost tribe, finds them racing go-karts while high on fermented mango juice and there’s bunting strung across the witchdoctor’s hut that reads FUCK OFF.

Or, to paint it another way, the last mayoral race was between the only three candidates they could get: a Russian immigrant who speaks almost no English, a New Age lunatic, and the murderer who drives their school bus.

They are the few.  They are the crazy.  At least they are if you believe the motto of their cricket club: ‘somos pocos pero estamos locos‘. The Mexican ambassador certainly seems to.  He’s the one who gave it them in the first place.

I mistook it for Matt Smith initially.

I think it might be the jacket, hair, angle of the chin and the small size of the image.
But mostly the jacket.

Indeed. The different between that photo and the next one is astounding.

So, so long ago.

Well, I mean the original image, *clearly*.

But I don't recall seeing that dugong image this morning.

Maybe I was dazzled by Bacon Busters. I haven't seen that magazine for ages.

Incidentally, I am somewhat amazed to see Bacon Busters appears to still be publishing, which you probably knew.

But I had no idea there was at least one person out there who so beloves dead pigs and "babes" that there is a fan site and a FB page - both unofficial.

Herein concludes my horrified research into the world of pigging.

Did you article ever get published after his 'van burnt down?

You can see the resemblance if you squint just right.

It was my first thought as well. Perhaps it's something in the pose.

If only you were 20 years younger you could dress up like that and find yourself an Amy Pond.
Or "cosplay" as the kids day.
