Just realised that I've had a 'Suzi moment' after clicking on the Marx and Coca-Cola blog.
Of course, I knew that yesterday was the 160th anniversary of Fred and Charlie's classic agit-prop pamphlet. I forgot to mention it on the blog because I just happened to be distracted by a minor mid nineties agit-pop classic.
Marx and Coca-Cola's JM provides the killer quote from said pamphlet, whilst I do a cut and paste job from Mike Leigh's classic late eighties film, 'High Hopes':
Later in the afternoon, CYRIL and SHIRLEY speed along their street on their bike. They overtake SUZI, who is scuttling along, carrying a large, bulging plastic bag. SHIRLEY waves to her as they pass. She waves back.
Moments later, as CYRIL and SHIRLEY alight, SUZI appears round the corner . . .
SUZI: (Saluting) Wotcher, comrades!
SHIRLEY: Hallo, Suzi!
SUZI: Long time no see.
SHIRLEY: You all right?
SUZI: Yeah, I been fine.
(CYRIL and SHIRLEY take off their helmets.)
Where you been?
CYRIL: Highgate Cemetery.
SUZI: Oh! Someone dead?
CYRIL: Yeah - Karl Marx.
(He walks off. SHIRLEY laughs.)
SUZI: Oh, yeah, 'course!
CYRIL: I'd 'ave thought you'd 'ave known that.
SUZI: I did know that - I just forgot.
(SHIRLEY and SUZI follow CYRIL towards their block of flats.)
